Self-proclaimed world's leading supplier of portable, environmentally friendly power solutions, Jackery, has expanded its high-end Pro product family with the new Solar Generator 1500 Pro, a sustainable power source part of the newly developed product range that CES Innovation Award-winner Jackery presented in January at the Consumer Electronics Show 2023 in Las Vegas.
Jackery, who occupies the number one spot in our best solar charger guide with its Solar Generator 500 model, says that the ultra-charging system of the 1500 Pro enables fast charging in just two hours with 230 volts from a socket. Alternatively, six Jackery SolarSaga 200W solar modules ensure a full battery just as quickly. When charged, the lithium-ion battery then provides a permanent output power of 1,800 watts for the supply of electronic devices. After 1,000 full charge and discharge cycles, 80 per cent of the original capacity is still available.
The IP67 weatherproof SolarSaga 200W solar modules provide emission-free power. They can be quickly erected, thanks to IBC solar cells, which are said to have a very high efficiency of 25 per cent and generates up to 50 per cent more electricity than conventional models, even in poor light conditions. The solar generator has an integrated MPPT solar controller (Maximum Power Point Tracking), which increases the solar yield.
The Solar Generator 1500 Pro is shockproof, fire-resistant, and complies with the UL 94V-0 classification. The generator reliably supplies electricity at temperatures as low as -20°C and as high as 40°C. The 12 protective functions included in it effectively cover unexpected scenarios such as overcurrent, short circuit, deep discharge, overload, overvoltage, and overheating.
There are a corresponding number of connection options for electrical devices, including two USB-A 3.0 outputs up to 18 W, two USB-C ports with Power Delivery up to 100 W and a 12-volt socket. Next to it are two Schuko sockets for 230-volt devices. An AC and DC input is installed on the back to charge the generator.
The Jackery Solar Generator 1500 Pro is available to buy directly from Jackery or third-party retailers such as Amazon for a recommended retail price of £1,500 (1500 Pro, approx. $1,790/AU$2,626) or £2,100 (1500 Pro and Solar Generator, approx. $2,506/AU$3,637). Early bird orders between 16-22 February can enjoy discounts of up to £110. Anyone who orders the following week from (23-28 February) will receive a carrying case for the power station free of charge (worth £99).
