Power outage. One of the modern people’s worst nightmare. Gas generator is the go-to choice for backup power in the past, but thanks to the advancement in battery technology, a power station like the SuperBase 500 Power Station is pretty much all you need.
SuperBase 500, by power bank veteran Zendure, is one of the latest entrant to the power station market. It is a 518 Wh power station, packing 140,000 mAh of juice and enough of outputs – including 600 W dual AC outputs and 60 W PD USB-C input or output – to power 9 devices simultaneously.
With the SuperBase 500, it can keep a 5W desk lamp lit for 41 hours, a 110 W TV running for 3.6 hours, charges a MacBook Pro 16-inch four times, runs a coffee maker for 45 minutes, and more.
Pretty mind-blowing, especially you consider it is highly portable. In fact, it is one of the smallest power station – if not the smallest – we have seen. It measures just 7.9 inches wide, 5.5 inches deep and 8.6 inches tall (20 x 14 x 22 cm, or 6 liters by volume), and at mere 11 lbs (5 kilograms), it is easy to lug around with its integrated fold-down carry handle.
This means, it is not just good as a backup for homes; it is good for outdoor activities like camping and a perfect companion for digital nomads too. When outdoor, SuperBase 500 can be recharged using the optional solar panels too – just like any good power station should.
When plugged in, the device recharges in just 3.5 hours and boasts Battery Management System (BMS) for managing and monitor the cells to ensure peak performance and prevents overcharging and over-discharging.
