Post a screenshot. Don't spread some suspicious site.

At least 1 security scanner lists the site as malicious, and the links are shady, so probably a scam.

Seems like the brand sells on Amazon. Go read some reviews. Though not sure if that is even their official domain

Anything advertised on the Internet is most likely a scam.

Anything advertised on Facebook is almost certainly a scam.

That Amazon thing seems real, it even has its own well performing stock Winking Face

As for Facebook i have to agree, as High Expectation Asian Father once said:
Facebook? Why don't you face book and study? Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

Those prices are laughable.
That said i only wish they were real Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Lets take that 1002Wh power bank, the batteries would have to cost about $30kWh to make it work (they cost maybe $500kWh retail). Then somehow the inverter another $15, $10 for the casing and components and another $10 for the charge controller. Transportation and marketing another $5-10.
These prices are unrealistic in 2021.

That said if they were selling them at an extreme loss to clear out inventory i would still expect it to cost $300-600.

The actual manufacturer site is jackery.com.
The price for the model 1000 unit is $999 USD, not $69.

If CT has a $1300 power bank for $69 i most certainly would.
Thats out of whack for even CT's "sale" nonsense.

Not sure about CT but Canadian Tire had a battery pack for like $100 bucks, works good for small appliances and tools.. Just because you saw a $1300 one in an add does not necessarily mean you NEED a $1300 one, you can be fine with a $100 to $400 range for one

We are talking about one of the specific ones posted.

But the different one you mention, is it lithium and how many Wh?
Also 120V out plug?

no idea but just because you see an add on face book for a so called generator does NOT mean you must go and buy that exact model, if there is one on sale at crappy tire and it does 95% of the same thing, but its genuine and not a fake ad, why not. just go for it get the real thing from a reputable store and call it a day

The wholesale price of the batteries is much higher than the purchase price.
Its a fake unless someone is stupid enough to give away well over a thousand dollars per unit.
