Excellent variety of outputs to connect up to10 devices within the overall 1000W limit.
A 1120Wh EV-Grade Li-On battery – 1200W continuous and 2000W peak power.
3,500+ charging cycles to 80% of its original capacity, up to 10 Years of use.
On the one hand it is among the upper level of relatively heavier power stations at 29lbs but it does offer you more output than other devices on the market. It’s fairly compact at 16.5 x 13 x 15 inches and is eminently suitable for those who want to enhance their experience when traveling in their RV.
EV-Grade LiPO4 technology coupled with advanced Battery Management System (BMS) ensures the stability and longer life of the non-replaceable 1460Wh lithium-ion battery by providing protection against:
The G1000L has an outstanding capability for 3500+ charging cycles to 80% of its original capacity. So, you can expect your purchase to have a life of around 10 years.
The unit contains a fan which will start working if AC output is over 600W so as to cool down the power station to keep it within its operating temperature. Although power stations are generally silent in operation, when the fan comes on you will hear it.
When the AC output power is lower than 5W for up to 3 hours, the AC will automatically turn off to save energy. When the DC output power < 2W for up to 1 hour, the DC ports will automatically turn off to save energy.
The 1600L can be charged by at least three methods: AC wall outlet, one or two Lipower 100W Solar Panels – and a car’s 12V socket. Recharge times can vary according to ambient conditions
The control panel is simple and dominated by the multiple outputs and inputs. An easy to read small LCD panel is included so you can monitor the operation and condition of the device.
The three 1200W continuous AC outlets have an impressive momentary surge (peak) of 2000W, and their Pure Sine Wave output provides a safe and steady stream of power much the same as that from your home AC wall outlets, so you can safely connect sensitive electronic devices. (Remember, the combined total usable AC output is1200W).
Power stations differ from portable generators in that they are virtually silent operation and are significantly safer in general. For example, they are much lighter in weight, you don’t need to worry about how to safely store fuel, and importantly they do not emit the toxic carbon monoxide gas. They are also one of the only solutions for people living in apartments.
Despite their relative high price to power, portable power stations can be a useful addition for people who already own a portable generator that they can use when they don’t need the power of a portable generator.
The LiPower 1000L has a 24-month warranty. This, bear in mind, usually applies only to the original owner so if you are looking to purchase a used one the warranty cannot be transferred.
Here is the User Manual for this model.
The AC output ports must be used with a total number of devices with a combined power need of 1200W. To protect the unit, it will shut down automatically when this limit is exceeded causing an overload condition.
Yes, it can be used like this.
You can use the DC to MC4 (Anderson) cable to connect solar panel(s) included in the box.
Recharging times can be affected by ambient conditions, but you can expect around 5-8 hours with two 100W solar panels connected and quite lot more with a one such panel.
No. Li-on batteries can be volatile and become unstable. The total battery size exceeds what is permitted by the TSA for reasons of safety.
Maybe just the cooling fan.
