            Frequently Asked Questions:

            Q: What devices can Explorer 500 power?


            A: Please note that the AC output port can only charge/power devices that operate at less than 500-Watt. Once exceeding, the Explorer 500 will shut off automatically. Please refer to your device specification before purchase. 


            Q: How to know the working times for my device?


            A: Working time = 500Wh* 0.85 / operating power of your device.

            For reference, assuming the power consumption of your device is 60W (might be a box fan), working time will be 500Wh*0.85/60w=7hrs (rough calculated).

            Please note: actual power consumption varies from different usages, please reach out to info@homesteadsupplier.com


            Q: How long does it take to fully charge this power station?


            A: Within 7.5 hours from an AC wall outlet; Also another two recharge backup choices for your convenience, recharge from carport around 16 hours, and around within 9.5 hours from Jackery Saga 100W solar panel (Sold Separately).


            Q: How do I know if my Explorer 500 is charged?


            A: To check the charge level of the Explorer 500, refer to the LCD Battery Display.


            Q: What type of battery is in an Explorer 500?


            A: Explorer 500 contains a battery pack that consists of an array of cylindrical 18650 lithium-ion battery cells with high energy density.

            Q: Is the solar panel waterproof?


            A: The Saga 100W is not waterproof. To maximize the lifespan of the module, Please don’t make it get wet.

             


            Q: Why the solar can not produce 100W power when charging to Explorer 1000 power station?


            A: As you know, solar panels are affected by many factors, such as the intensity of the light and the angle of the panel put on the ground. 100W is tested in an ideal laboratory. However, the intensity of the light constantly changes. In addition, the angle of the light illuminating the solar panel also changes with the rotation of the sun. Please try to test your solar panel under the full sunlight to see, and make sure there is no shadow cast on the panel.



            Q: How to clean the solar panel surface?


            A: We mentioned this point in the manual. Please use a soft cloth to remove the dust and dirt on the surface. Use a damp cloth to wipe the surface of the solar module to remove any remaining dust or dirt. Any guano or other adhesive should be removed as soon as possible from the solar surface to avoid a reduction in performance.

             


            Q: Can the solar panel charge smartphones and tablets?


            A: Yes, the 100W solar panel has 1* USB-C(5V,3A) output port and 1* USB-A(5V, 2.4A) output port.

            Ask a Question
            • Is the battery replacable?

              The battery is not replaceable, if the generator is damaged, we can do a replacement during the warranty period.

            • Can the explorer 500 be charged from a 240V outlet in Europe ? Many thanks

              Our store only sells Jackery products that can only be charged from a US Outlet. You would need to buy the European version for it to work from a 240V outlet.

            Don't Take Our Word For it! Here's What Our Customers Think:

            Hats off to Homestead Supplier for superior customer service - these guys go above and beyond to answer all my questions. We purchased the Beach House shed for some extra storage but ended up using it as a backyard playhouse for the kids :). Now we have to buy another shed lol... The shed is great, sturdy, and would recommend to others.

            - Sam B.

            I found the buying experience to be far better than expected. Very easy to order, received immediate order confirmation, excellent customer service, order showed earlier than expected and in excellent condition. Would definitely recommend

            - Dean G.

            After 7 months of waiting for our pool to be completed, we are thrilled to have gotten our new shed built. It perfectly completes our backyard renovation. We love it! The instructions were clear, and the building is sturdy. We’ve had a number of inquiries about who we bought our shed kit from.

            - Karen E.
