Apr 25, '22

Believe you have the same feeling that we can't live without electricity anymore. Though you might take a short trip for around 3-5 days, you can’t bear to live without electricity. Not only needed for charging devices but also a backup battery to prevent a sudden power outage.

There are two main sects in the market: diesel generators and portable power stations. Then you might be ready to pick a helper but find a problem:  Which should be the perfect one for meeting all your needs. 

What Is A Diesel Generator?

A generator is a traditional and mechanical machine that turns other forms of energy into electricity. It's usually prepared for outdoor adventure or emergency backup. However, it deeply depends on diesel. It uses high-speed running to produce electricity, it will make noise and all pollution when running. That's why more and more people will rather choose a portable power station as their new favorite.

What Is A Portable Power Station?

A portable power station usually gets power from solar panels or receives electricity from the house directly. They are larger enough for home backup and convenient enough for outside camping.

Both at home and outdoor, they can power your devices from light, laptop, CPAP, portable refrigerator, electric grill, etc. For they have enough juice to power big things for a while and can send out more electricity.
