[Amazon.ca] Jackery 167 Wh Portable Battery With 110V AC - $209 no tax ($160 off)

Regular price is $369, and previous ATL was $212 back in 2019 so this is a great deal. $229 with a $20 coupon. Works out to 43% off. NO TAX on checkout.

Some features:
  • This is the lightest 167 Wh external battery you can get (4lbs).
  • 1x USB-C, 2x USB-A, 1x 110V AC, 1x 12V DC
  • Can charge through AC (home), DC (car) or solar panel
  • Built in LED light with SOS mode
  • 100W output power (150W peak)
  • Can be used as an inverter in your car (passthrough 12V DC to 110V AC)
For a comparison, the Macbook Air has a 50Wh battery so you can get 3x full charges with this thing. Perfect for WFH outside of your home.

But they don't deliver to Canada.

Can this be used to power a UPS since it's pure sine wave?

As in, I have a UPS that lasts 20 min. If the power fails, I unplug the UPS and plug it into this thing (or its bigher brother model) so I can keep working for hour during a power failure without having to shut down the PC.

Remember that you cannot take this on a plane. The battery pack is too big.

Does anyone else just not trust a no name brand for this kind of thing?

I guess it's not any different than buying a Motomaster one from Crappy Tire.... Amazon returns are probably easier!

It's not a no-name brand, Jackery has been around for a while. This model is a Wirecutter 'also great' pick for portable power stations: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best- ... plorer-160

Hmm, I wonder if this could be used like a UPS? I have a tankless gas water heater that needs electricity to run. The last power outage I connected a small UPS to it and got a couple of hot showers. I would love to leave something a bit bigger connected to the water heater so that it just works when the power goes out.

Price seems good but it's quite small for it's usage, no?

What would you use this for? I was thinking of one for roadtrips, but this would require regular recharging which may not be possible!

Depends what you need it for. In my initial experiment, I used my 230wh Aimtom for a full weekend (2 days 3 nights) at my offgrid cabin, the 230wh powered my cpap, laptop, and a couple of led lights for the 3 nights. It was down to no bar but it got the job done. I did not need my gas generator that trip. At 167wh, it should last me for two nights. I am actually thinking of buying one of these to power my small stuffs and use the 230wh purely for my cpap. I hated the noise which my gas generator makes and the Jackery should be an upgrade from my Aimtom.

I'm wondering if this would make a good backup for a basement sump pump... Most battery backup solutions are way more expensive.

Jackery is a pretty old brand. I've used one of their battery packs for years

I’d guess no but it depends on your sump pump. 1 HP is 745W so if you have eg a 1/4 HP sump pump then you need something that can output at least 190W. This model only does 100W but the larger Jackery ones can handle more.

I plan on driving around BC this summer and I may bring some electronics with me.. I've been looking into these products, but from my research they seemed over price for what they are. I want it to be good enough to be honest, but the back of my head keeps telling me I can build something like this for a little more money but a much higher capacity.. What do you guys think? I'd like to charge two Xiaomi M365 Pro scooters, laptop, phones, drone and photography gear. No way I can do this with under 200Watt. I still have to calculate what my need would be, but I suspect it would be at least 1200Watt.

Edit: I would like the charge to last at least 2-3 days for all the electronica mentioned. Scooters may only need to be charged once. I was thinking of charging with solar panels, but this bumps up the price significantly. No way the alternator could charge it fast enough, even with an isolator.

You can definitely build it on your own for cheaper or at least same with more capacity. There are YouTube videos that show how to make various kinds and sizes, only determining factor is if you have the experience and know how to do it, and where to source everything. If you can trust yourself to do it, go for it.

I dont have the experience but I believe I can do it. I enjoy learning new things. Thanks for the affirmation. I've looked at the YouTube videos and it looks very straightforward :)
