Clean continuous 500W to safely power electronics, plus 1000W peak from 2xAC outlets.
Fitted with an upgraded lithium battery offering you improved safety and longer lifecycle.
9 Outlets, including 2 AC 500W to power and charge multiple devices at the same time.
An MPPT lets you have almost limitless power with the Golabs 100W Solar Panel.
The Golabs R500 is compact and reasonably light at a little over 14lbs making it a highly portable source of independent power. While it would have a useful place in the home in case of blackouts, it's essentially aimed at enhancing the life of campers and those who enjoy the outdoors life away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The R500 power station departs from the more usual practice of using Lithium-ion battery cells and opts for the LiFEP04 lithium technology and incorporates a powerful 518Wh cell capable of a momentary peak power of 1000W and 500W of continuous power.
LiFeP04 (lithium-ion phosphate) technology offers one of the safer types of lithium battery when compared to other li-ion technology as it is thermally and chemically more stable. These types of battery also have a much greater life cycle than other li-ion batteries. In the case of the Golabs R500, you can expect up to 3500 cycles and more than 10 years of battery health under normal conditions.
A BMS is built into the unit to provide additional protection for issues such as overcurrent, short-circuit and overheating. A fan is also incorporated to provide further cooling in addition to the side vents, and designed to make sure that the component work within their operational parameters.
The R500 can be charged in up to four ways: AC wall outlet, solar panel, a car's 12V socket, and finally when connected to a portable generator.
A practical set of outputs includes:
The two 500W continuous AC outlets have enough momentary power (1000W peak) enabling the R500 to start more demanding electrical devices. And the Pure Sine Wave outlets are perfect for the protection of sensitive devices such as CPAPs and laptops by producing clean and stable electricity these sorts of devices need to not be damaged.
While portable generators have an important role to play in the lives of many people who have limited or no access to grid power, it's always a pleasure to be able at times to forget their noise and potentially dangerous fumes such as carbon monoxide. And this is where portable power stations can step in to either supplement a portable generator when power needs are not so great, or for people who perhaps live in apartments and are obviously unable to use a portable generator.
But portable power stations really come into their own when hiking and camping due in most part to their relative light weight and ability to provide almost limitless power when used in conjunction with a solar panel.
Recharge times are up with the best. For example, to charge a MacBook Pro 13.3 from 0-80% takes just one hour.
Power up to 9 devices at the same time with the R500's diverse set of outputs, including 1x100W PD (Input/ output); 1x60W PD Type-C (Output); 2x110V 500W AC Pure Sine Wave outlets (Peak 1000W), 2xRegulated DC outputs (12V/10A), 2xQuick Charge 3.0 USB outputs, and 1xcigarette lighter output (Regulated 12V/10A).
On a standard fully charged battery cell the R500 can keep a whole host of items charged, and up to 9 at the same time (within the combined 500W total).
The R500 supports devices of less than 500W, so you'll be fine with items such as smartphones, laptops, cameras, drones, LED lights, and small fans. Before connecting, check the open circuit current/ voltage of your devices.
Yes, you can use all the outputs while the unit is on charge, except for the PD 100W port.
Depending on the available sunlight, the maximum input power can reach 90W. The 80W to 100W solar panels are recommended for the R500.
No, the Li-on battery size exceed that permitted by the TSA for safety reasons.
The unit has a cooling fan that is only really audible when standing very close to it.
