Review of the Lipower PA300

- At A Glance -

8 Device Capability

A super collection of ports and outputs is provided so you can connect up to 8 devices within its 300W limit.

300W of Power

It has a 296Wh Lithium-ion battery capable of outputting 300W of continuous power and 500W peak (surge).

Light and Compact

Weighing just 7.1lbs and measuring L10.0xH9.1xW5.5 inches it'll easily fit in your backpack.


At just 7.1lbs, this is a really lightweight and small power pack which pumps out a decent amount of power for the kind of people who love hiking and perhaps camping while on foot out in the wild where access to an independent power source is more than just a necessity should an emergency arise. A super bright 5W LED light is included which has four lighting modes, including an SOS and Strobe.

Excellent Battery Safety and Life-Prolonging Technology

Lipower PA300 Battery Safety

An advanced Battery Management System (BMS) is built into the system to give you increased stability and a longer life cycle for the 296Wh lithium-ion battery by providing superior protection against:

  • Short-circuit
  • Over-discharge
  • Over-charging
  • Over-power
  • Over-heating
  • Over-current

When necessary a cooling fan built into the unit itself automatically begins to work so that the power station remains within its operating temperature parameters both when being charged and when powering devices.

The LCD display contains a Battery Level Indicator with 5 segments that provide you with information on the charge levels of about 20%-40%-60%-80%-100%. Try not to use the unit when the level is below 20% and instead immediately plug it into a power source such as an AC outlet or a solar panel.

Recharging the power station

The PA300 can be charged by at least three methods: AC wall outlet, a solar panel - and a car's 12V socket. And using a portable generator provides the possibility of an additional method.

The time needed to recharge the unit can vary according to ambient conditions. But, as a very general guide, you can expect to achieve times of about:

  • 6-7 hours from an AC wall outlet (AC adapter included)
  • 8-10 hours from a car port
  • 5-12 hours using a Lipower 100W Solar Panel that incorporates MPPT technology for rapid charging (variable due to changeable ambient conditions, particularly sunlight)

A Full Set Of Connections and Accessories

Lipower PA300 Outputs and Accessories

A straightforward control panel contains a full set of output connections, shown immediately below, plus two AC outlets and a pair of bright LED flashlights. A compact LCD display is included so you can monitor the operation and condition of the device both in bright sunlight and in the dark.

Lipower PA300 Versatility

  • 2x110V 300W (Peak 500W) AC Pure Sine Wave
  • 2xDC 12V 6A Max
  • 2xUSB (5V/3.1A Max, 15W)
  • 1 Quick Charge 3.0 5V-12V 18W Max USB output
  • 1xDC Solar Input (13V-30V/4A)
  • 1xType-C Output PD60W

The two 300W continuous AC outlets have a momentary surge (peak) of 500W, and their Pure Sine Wave output provides a safe and steady stream of power just like that from a home AC wall outlet, essentially meaning that you can connect any of your sensitive electronic devices to the power station without being concerned about damaging fluctuations in the current.

Eco-friendly clean indoor and outdoor power

Portable power stations have a few similarities to portable generators. But in essence they are very different devices, particularly in the reduced amount of power they can deliver. They are much safer to use, are more portable, and don't give off toxic carbon monoxide gas.

But that's not all, as you won't need to be concerned about storing fuel safely, or about gas going bad and gumming up the carburetor, which many owners of gas-powered portable generators often complain about.

For people who live in apartment, a power station may be the only solution as they won't have the needed outside space to operate a portable generator during a power outage.

A portable power stations can also be a handy device to have even if you already own a portable generator because you won't always need the power of the latter.


All Lipower power stations come with a 24-month warranty but be warned that this applies only to the original purchaser.

Here is the User Manual for this model.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can this device power?

Remember that the two AC output ports can charge devices only up to 300W. To protect the unit, it will shut down automatically when this limit is exceeded causing an overload condition.

Can I use the power station while it is on charge?

Although you can, it is not recommended as charging the unit will take far longer and it can shorten the battery life. Also, the DC ports cannot be used while charging. (Recharge the unit every 3 or 4 months when storing for a longer battery life cycle especially during the warranty period).

What adapter cable is best for solar charging?

You can use a DC to MC4 cable to connect solar panel(s). One is included with the device.

How quickly can I recharge with a solar panel?

Recharging times can be affected by ambient conditions, but in general within you can expect about 7 hours when hooked up to a 100W solar panel (dependent on amount of sunshine available).

Can I take this power station on a plane?

No. Li-on batteries can be volatile and because of their chemical composition can become unstable. Additionally, the total battery size far exceeds what is normally permitted (100Wh) by the TSA for reasons of safety.

Can I replace the battery?

No. The device's internal battery is non-removable and you should try to remove it as you may damage the device.
