Weighing just 6.6 pounds, the Jackery Explorer 240 generator is one of the lightest and one of the best-rated portable power stations of its kind available on the market.
The generator is made by Jackery Power Outdoors, a California-based power banks and generators manufacturer that is renowned for the durable quality of its products. Right off the bat, one can easily tell that this is also a durable product. This is because it is made of extremely tough and high-quality plastic that looks perfect for outdoor life.
How It Works

This means it is perfect for traveling to offbeat destinations with no power sources. It is also perfect for camping, cross country road trips, fishing, hunting, and as an alternative power supply during emergency situations.
This power station is also good enough for charging drones, mini-refrigerators, and mini-projectors.

The Jackery Explorer 240 generator is a high-capacity power station. It stores more power than most similarly sized power stations. When fully charged, it can store enough power to charge your smartphone, your laptop, your drone, and your GoPro camera several times. It can also power a mini fridge for five hours, a mini projector for twelve hours, and a 10W lantern for more than twenty hours.
The fact that it can be recharged in several ways is also an advantage. It means you can use it in many places for different purposes. For instance, if you expect a power cut for a few hours, you can charge it and then use it when the lights go out. Alternatively, if you are going on a long road trip, you can charge it using the carport charger and use it to power your laptop or any other device during the trip or when you reach your destination.
Another feature that is definitely an advantage is its design; specifically, its easy carry handle and its multiple outlets. This design makes it the Jackery Explore 240 generator easy to use.
This portable power station has two disadvantages: it cannot be used to charge power gadgets with a power rating of 200 or more watts, and secondly, it is unsuitable for use with CPAP machines. So if you are looking for a portable power station for your CPAP machine, or for a machine that has a rating of 200W, you should definitely consider another product and not this one.
