Are you a fan of self-reliant adventure and traveling to remote destinations? If you are, then have a reliable and rechargeable source of power is a must. In this guide, we’ll take a look at the Jackery Explorer 240 Portable Power Station and find out exactly what it has to offer.
Jackery Explorer 240 Review
The Jackery Explorer 240 Portable Power Station is a superb option for overlanders, adventure travelers, and campers who need a regular supply of power at their campsite. The compact and streamlined device comes with a built-in handle that makes it easy to move around and comes with 240 watt-hours of power so that you can recharge pretty much anything you plug into it. This can be linked up to the Solar Saga Panel, which will give you eco-friendly and reliable power.
Jackery Explorer 240 Features
Compact & Lightweight Design
The Explorer 240 weighs under 7 lbs. and is simple to transport with its conveniently oversized handle. It’s constructed of high-impact plastic with all the ports placed on one side, so there’s no guessing when searching for the correct port.
Charging All Your Devices On The Explorer 240
Equipped with not one but two fast-charging USB-A ports, a 12-volt DC port, and a standard AC outlet, however, sadly, no USB-C ports are available on this model. The charging ports give the Explorer 240 the ability to power everything from phones, tablets, drones, and CPAP machines, making it a multifaceted travel companion. Use all the onboard ports simultaneously, allowing you to charge four devices at once.
A built-in LCD screen allows users to observe the battery status at all times and monitor the power levels going in and out. A convenient feature to have when you want to see how much juice is being used by a particular gadget, particularly when rationing the Explorer 240’s battery life may be in order.
Charging On & Recharging The Jackery Explorer 240
Recharging the Jackery Portable Power Station Explorer 240 is quick and efficient. The Explorer 240 will arrive with AC and DC adapter that you can plug into a wall outlet at home or on a campsite, or using the 12-volt carport. The lithium-ion battery takes 8 hours to charge using either of these two options. Jackery also allows you to recharge using a solar panel, which can take an additional 2-4 hours depending on direct sunlight. This model does not come with a solar panel, so you will need to own one already or buy one separately.

Is The Explorer 240 Power Station Quite?
Yes, it makes no noise because it is a big battery rather than a petroleum or gas-powered generator. Therefore if you leave it on at night, it won’t disturb your sleep or other campers.
