    Q:I'm looking for an outage backup for my sump pump. I understand this power station is not an UPS and I would have to plug in the pump and turn on the power. I would be at home in most cases to do this. Is this a good choice at this price point?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Dear Customer, Thanks for reaching out to us regarding this question. I'm looking for an outage backup for my sump pump. I understand this power station is not a UPS and I would have to plug in the pump and turn on the power. I would be at home in most cases to do this. Is this a good choice at this price point? Yes, many people use this for surveillance cameras and sump pumps. The device does not support UPS but supports use while charging, which is pretty much the same for the DAILY BASIS USE. Please check the power of pump sump and make sure the power does not exceed 500 Watts Please do not hesitate to ask us, if you have more questions. Thanks for your support.

          10/10 would recommend the Jackery, in fact I have. I’m able to get 35-40 hours powering my 12v fridge/ freezer. If they offered a 2000w unit I’d but that too. Great quality and simple to use for many needs.

          Great product for my needs.
          I ordered this after previously buying a different power bank, the kind with jumper cables, an air compressor for tires and other inflatables. That only worked temporarily before I realized I needed something different. I do Astro photography and I needed something that could power my GoTo Equatorial Mount, my two dedicated astro cameras and ASIAIR Pro that controls all of them. The other power bank only lasted two hours, but I needed something that could last all night if I needed it, at least four hours because this type of photography requires very long exposure times so you need to be able to take advantage of every clear night when you are maybe at a remote site.This Jackery 550 does that easily. I have had it just the other night go for six hours and still had about 68% life left. I like that the bottom usb port is one that will charge my iPad and the other two are better suited to phones that way I can watch Netflix while my rig is shooting away. I've only had it just over a month and very pleased with it.
