Review of the Rockpals RockPower 1300W

- At A Glance -

1300W-2000W (Peak)

Rockpals' most powerful power station designed for a wide range of uses in and out of the home.

LiFePO4 Technology

Comes with newer LiFePO4 technology lasting up to 2000 Cycles at 80% depth of discharge.

5 Recharge Methods

A combination of ways to recharge makes this model super versatile as well as a powerful option.

Designed for powerful applications

This is one of the more powerful power stations available to buy that delivers an impressive 2000W of peak power and 1300W of running power. These levels of output are perfect for powering an RV and other demanding off-grid devices.

With its regulated voltage of 12V it can charge phones over 100 times, a MacBook 38 times, power car coolers for 27 hours, run projectors for 18 hours, and keep a CPAP going for 21 hours non-stop. 

The power outputs convert to a Pure Sine Wave which is clean and safe for sensitive electronics. Power stations do not emit harmful emissions produced by portable gas-powered generators, and they are virtually silent in operation.

Has a high-capacity battery with industry standard safety

Rockpals have chosen to include the newer LifePO4 battery technology in this model and its 1254.4Wh gives it outstanding performance. It can last at least 5 times longer when compared to standard lithium battery technology used by some other power stations.

The battery array can handle up to 2000 Cycles at 80% depth of discharge owing to its higher energy density which provides you with a more stable performance. In addition, a Battery Management System (BMS) is built into the device to minimize the volatility associated with lithium batteries. This improves battery use and lengthens its useful life by monitoring and controlling voltage and temperature. Other advanced safety features, such as automatic shutoff in cases of over-voltage or short-circuits, are also included.

Power stations normally have an internal fan designed to cool the power supply and other electrical components and this is no exception.

Comprehensive set of output and input connections

Rockpals 1300w components

Rockpals have provided an excellent range of outputs for a whole variety of outdoor uses. The outputs comprise:

  • 3xAC
  • 2xDC
  • 2xQC fast-charge USB-A
  • 1xUSB-A 3.1A
  • 1x12V Car
  • 1xPD USB Type-C output

Additionally, the power station supports pass-through charge (DC and USB ports) for extended discharge time.

With its comprehensive set of outputs, the power station is capable of charging 10 devices at the same time. And among its major benefits is the ability to charge high-power devices such as portable refrigerators, microwaves, and electric grills.

Highly flexible ways to recharge the device

Rockpals RockPower 1300W Recharge Methods

With these 5 charging methods the power station is a highly flexible device.

Optional solar panel charging using the Anderson port (12-26V, 250W Max) allows it to charge in about 5 to 6 hours (Note: an Anderson Cable, which is included, is an insulated, high-voltage electrical cable normally used in heavy-duty applications).

Using a combination of a wall socket: DC (160W Max) plus the PD input (60W Max) it takes about 6 to 7 hours to charge.

With the DC port (160W Max) it takes about 8 to 9 hours.

Using the PD input on its own you can expect it to take between 20 and 28 hours.

Out on the road you can use the car charging port. This method will take about 11 to 12 hours to recharge the device.

Don't forget that Rockpals solar panels are available with which you can, depending on climatic conditions, benefit from almost limitless solar power.

Rockpals Rockpower 1300W go anywhere

Take it Where You Go

Weighing 39lbs, it's easy enough to transport in your vehicle, and can be stored away when not in use.

An independent source of powerful electricity with potentially limitless energy linked to a solar panel enhances your outdoor adventures and can be a life saver at home for people who depend on power 24/7.
