Portable Power Stations
« on: November 16, 2021, 05:20 PM »
Klein Tools has two new entries in this category. A 500Watt unit and a 1500W unit.
These are similar to the Jackery and others but have fold down handles which are an improvement in my opinion.

Cost is also in line with the others at about $1 per watt-hour.

As seen at Performance Line Tools

Hmm, maybe the cost is higher, just noticed this "Large 983Wh capacity". Substantially less than the advertised 1500Watts.

Good catch!  The "Watts" listing is the rated sustained output.  With a 983Wh capacity, you're looking at a 39-ish minute run time at full output.

I'd imagine that if the Wh rating was higher than the output rating, they would have used the Wh as part of the product name instead; I'm not terribly surprised that they chose the output wattage as the model name instead of the capacity.

The 1000Wh Jackery cost $1000. It is 2000W peak output.
