Product Overview

The Solar Generator Explorer 290 gives you power on the go. This compact generator is perfect for powering a laptop, TV, phone and more when camping or on the road. It can charge up to four devices at once and it can be recharged via a wall outlet, a car outlet or through a solar panel.
  • 400-W peak output, compact and easy to carry: Jackery invented the Explorer 290, which is smaller and lighter and offers enough electricity, you can carry it all the time everywhere
  • RV camping/fishing/hunting/getaway/emergency: with its eco-friendly and quiet features, Explorer 290 is one of the best investments for your outdoor life; no extra setup time is required compared to a traditional RV system
  • Better than a car inverter: if you want to use electricity in the car, the engine has to run the whole time to offer electricity for a device like a car fridge; the power station can protect your car's battery
  • Built-in MPPT controller: the MPPT module is designed inside the power station; by constantly monitoring the voltage and current output of your solar panels, MPPT adds up to 23% more solar recharging efficiency
  • Charge: Jackery Explorer 290 can charge four different devices simultaneously, such as a mini fridge, phone, iPad, laptop
  • For power saving, Explorer 290 portable power station will be turned off automatically in 6 hours when being drawn under 15-W power

Awesome Power Station and Amazing Customer Service
The device arrived in a timely fashion, it was 30% already charged, I finished charging the station to 100% a couple days ago, it has kept the charge, I haven't had a chance to use the solar power because of the weather, but all looks well! This Jackery is an amazing device for power on the go, I am using it now to charge my phone as I write this review! I definitely recommend this device for your emergency or everyday needs, I will be getting the other models in the future!

    Jackery 290! Very happy purchasing through home depot, solid product
    I needed a smaller more compact battery pack for short trips that mainly consisted of a lot of driving. This battery pack is packed with power in a small form factor. I'm an overlander but at times we do a ton of road trips in our other non offroad vehicles and or rentals. This little Jackery is perfect for those road trips where we pair it with a small 15L fridge. We usually run the jackery pluged into the 12V outlet and have our mini fridge plugged into the jackery. This is the perfect setup, when we aren't driving the fridge can stay powered via the jackery unit. This is perfect when we leave the vehicle for a hike and ensuring the fridge stays powered! We also have a portable folding solar panel to keep this little jackery charged. My tests using the 12v fridge shows I can get about 1.25 days without a charge - this is huge as we will most certainly be charging while driving. The price point is perfect and attached below is how this runs when we take the fridge into hotel rooms without fridges. Jackery makes solid products and this little unit packs a punch! I highly recommend, summer is coming up, skip the Ice and get a fridge and this jackery!

      Perfect for overnight CPAP use.
      Very pleased with this product. Exactly what I needed to make sure I had power for my CPAP overnight. Used with my CPAP for 8 hours with the attached humidifier & still had 8% power left. Charged it via wall outlet & used again the next night. Same results. Then I charged it back up while driving and it was ready to go @ 100% after 6hr road trip. It is small & light for my RV travels. Danny would buy this device again & highly recommends it for similar uses.

        Ok so far.
        Have not had need to use yet. No problem in getting battery fully charged. Seems to hold that charge well.

        I specifically purchased this battery to power my cpap overnight for camping. It runs out of power in about 4.25 hours. It is useless for me. It was advertised to run a cpap all night.
        Response from JackeryMay 12, 2022
        Dear Customer,
        We are really sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.

        The advertised time for CPAP is 6-21h, this is the real test data from Jackery laboratory, which is a reference value for the consumers.
        Because different brands and different working modes of CPAP may have an impact on the device's working duration. And in reality application, it would have lots of factors impact as well.
        According to our test data, this Explorer 290 can power the Air Sense 10 in around 4h in the case of heater and humidifier is off and 10 pressure. In this application, the running watts of CPAP is about 50-60W.

        If you need the replacement or return, please contact our customer service team for support.

        Your satisfaction is our priority concern.
        Thanks & Best Regards,
        Jackery Support Team Jackery
