Anyone using a Jackery 1000?

Just came to market in March but if anyone has one, I'd like to hear how you like or dislike it.
Need to use one for overnight power where using a gas genny is not doable...

Yes that's it.

The online reviews are good for it, but there are no long term reviews to see how long it lasts.
The battery is not replaceable, and for $1,000 I'd like to hear real world users opinion on it before I lay out that much cabbage on an unknown piece of equipment...

How have navigation bars on web sites become this hopelessly awful?

It looks like a a really sleek package, easy to use, etc. But I have to admit: there's no way I'd lay out that much money on a non-serviceable appliance. Anybody who has had a cell phone, laptop computer, power tools, etc knows that for one reason or another within a couple years a lithium battery is just not going to work like new anymore. Then again... I'm one who finds or makes a way to service even non-serviceable things.



1002 Wh isn't all that much power. A pair of 80 Ah 12 lead batteries taken to 50% depth of discharge will yield about the same and will cost only (under?) $200. Yeah, they're bigger and they weigh more.. only you, can decide whether the premium for a packaged lithium-based storage box makes sense in your use case.


If you haven't already, it's worth a few minutes to estimate how much storage you actually need. CPAP equipment, for instance, is claimed to require 30-60 watts. Running that for 9 hours might require as little as 270-540 Wh of storage.
