    December 26, 2020Does anyone have some personal experience with a portable power bank, also known as solar generators. I am looking at a 1,000 watt one like the Jackery, Ecoflow or Bluetti models or perhaps something else to do a few things when we dry camp without runnin...  more

      Seann (the Canadian) December 26, 2020 Check out Will Prowse? on utube. He does real world reviews and not glowing reports because somebody sent him something free he'll tell you like it is in his reviews and he is reviewed a fair number of solar generators

      Olddawg December 26, 2020 The price you pay for the name on most these is too much in my mind. I built mine. I agree with Seann, do check out Will's YouTube site. He has step by step build video's as well. You'll get the most for your dollar and learn about the Power Bank!

        rbiddle813 December 26, 2020 I agree in the long run Lithium is cheaper- thats why i use them. Fact is though if you have only two-three hundred dollars for 1000 wh of power, i can do it with lead acid. I cannot with off the shelf Lithium. Maybe if i diy build the batteries or look ...  more

        rbiddle813 January 5 Adding this chart for a comparison - Long run Lithium is cheaper. But last weekend I picked up (2) 125-AH 12-v AGM Batteries used but testing good for $50/ea for a relatively short term need. That give me 3000-wh of batteries, 1500-wh available (Based on ...  more
