G-POWER U1000 and S500 Portable Power Stations

by | Jun 3, 2023

We have received a number of comments from our viewers asking about affordable portable power stations to use for overnight stops or as supplemental power. We have reviewed a number of portable power stations, but these have been larger more costly units with 2,000 watts of AC power with surge capabilities of 4,000 watts. These large capacity power stations are expensive, but there are other power stations that are small, have less capacity, yet meet the basic need at a much more affordable cost. We test two units that fit the bill – the G-POWER U1000 and S500 Portable Power Stations.

G-POWER S500 Portable Power Station

The G-POWER portable power station has a large capacity of 556.8wh and 500W AC output (peak 1000W), which can power most devices such as a car fridge, travel coffee maker, laptop, phone, and more. There are 4 ways to recharge the G-POWER S500 power station, including an AC wall outlet (with the supplied power cord), solar panel, DC port, and USB-C PD port. It can be recharged from 0% to 85% within 1.5 hours through an AC wall outlet.

The G-POWER portable power station is equipped with the advanced LiFePO4 battery. This power station also provides an intelligent battery management system, which effectively prevents over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, short-circuit, over-temperature, and other problems.

The DC multi-voltage outputs are compatible with a variety of devices that can be powered simultaneously. There are independent switches of the main on/off and control the AC ports, DC ports, and light.
