It ran my standard capacity HE clothes washer on the standard load size with one extra rinse. went from 100% to 88 %. I had some issues getting it to start washer . I think the computer draws so little when start button is pressed it dose not show enough load to kick on the ac generator. My washer has the yellow energy tag that claims it uses $ 25 with electric water heater and $12 with natural gas. and a yearly 206 killo watts of electricity just to run it. your millage will vary. I estimate getting 4 to 5 normal loads out of one charge. very happy . they need to make a pairing cable/ device to make 220 volts for well pumps and clothes dryers.
This is a big power box. I bought it in part for the good reviews and testing by IMO people in the know. It charged up fully in reasonable time and tested OK. It came shipped in a robust package. It is heavy compared to other boxes with the same capacity. One thing I would like to see changed is the fact that the AC receptacles are located on the side of the unit under doors. I would like to see the AC on the front of the unit as in most boxes. The price was very reasonable as it came in at 45 cents per WH in my case. Overall a good unit. Recommended.
This is my second purchase of the 2100 model. I liked the first one so much that I decided to purchase a second one. That way I could rotate them - one being used while the other unit is charging. I was a little confused because my first unit says FF Power and this second unit says Oukitel. Other than the two names they are identical. I guess it's all the same company.
Package arrived in great shape, in a timely manner, and worked right out of the box. I plan on buying another one when they go back on sale and also look into buying one or two of there solar panels. Happy customer here. Thanks
I bought this based on a review by The Southern Prepper who recommended this unit. Upon receiving it, I fully charged the unit and gave it an overnight trial run on my chest freezer. It worked as advertised and I was very pleased - it's fairly intuitive to run and charge. Just a couple of comments. In bright sunlight the display is hard to read - had to shade it to see the display clearly. Also, it's not really obvious what the buttons are below each of the outlets. So, I printed my own labels and marked them as "OUTLET ON/OFF" at each switch. Lastly a little more contrast on the label markings at the outlets and storage doors would be helpful. Overall a good product. I liked it so much that I bought a second unit so that I could rotate them to have one being used while the other unit is charging.
This power station is everything that was promised and more...it arrived on time and quite quickly...i will recommend this product and company to be sure...thank you FFPower :)
We have two units might get a third.
It seems to work well. I ordered a second one.
5 Year warranty is nice, the upper compartment is very useful. Also the simple power cord with battery expandability is helpful. However, 74% efficiency is low and 112 Amp Hrs seems unrealistic.
As someone that's never used solar before, this was the power station I chose for a pilot project on powering the bare essentials in the event of grid failure. I needed to buy everything from the panels, brackets, wiring, to the power station itself, so my plan was to offset the initial investment by moving grid use over to solar and saving on grid utilities. The break even is over 10 years (at current rates of 0.22 cents/KWhr) but I expect those to rise.. and I wanted another power source. Right now, it's run on 100% solar, using four 100w panels in parallel. Weather permitting, I want to parallel another four panels and then wire them in series-parallel. I didn't know ahead of time if the power station would automatically charge from the sun, but it does. It makes some clicking sounds at dawn, before power is sufficient to charge, but once activated, it will charge with inputs as low as 4 watts. The highest I've gotten is about 260, but that's because it's winter and my panels are flush mounted on the roof at about 25-30 degrees. As for loads, it's not quite enough to run my fridge 16 hours, I don't get enough sun to charge 0 to 100%, so for now it runs my modem, router, charges flashlights, living room lights, and powers the microwave and toaster oven. It has no trouble with these. I only use one of the kitchen appliances at a time, but there's enough power for any of them. Doing so doesn't adversely affect the computer equipment. Finally, I use a small space heater to consume any extra power I think I can recharge the next the day. Its role may change as I expand my equipment, but it's done everything I've asked of it, and I look forward to either adding additional solar to the array, or putting it into a UPS function for heating and cooling
I'm using my P2001 to power my refrigerator so I can avoid extreme TOU electric pricing. The P2001 is recharged during late morning hours when renewables peak. Solar powered refrigerator!
So far this solar generator seems to be working great. Has a fast AC charge and an ok 500 watt solar or dc charge. Runs my full size refrigerator, my freezer, tv, cable box, and internet all at the same time without any issues. I have fully cycled this about 15 times, so this is too early to say how the long term will be. I believe it will be ok.
Although many youtubers gave high praise to this machine. My thought is that they are indeed a very responsible business. After many back and forth communications with the support team, I got my power station repaired and it has been returned in working order. The customer service was good.
I highly recommend buying the FFpower P2001, we used two to build the solar system, installed 5 100W solar panels on top of our boat and connected them in parallel (because the solar compatible voltage is 18-48V). Except for bad weather, our daily life is well protected, which saves us a lot of money, when we still need to pay for the gas bill for travel. This circulating energy is a genius idea.
I saw a great review on this product or I probably would not have known what power box to buy. We have not had it long but we did plug it into our side-by-side refrigerator in the house and it ran it for 12 hours before needing to be recharged. Then we took it out to the garage where it is 100° and put it on our chest freezer and it went 24 hours before it needed recharging. I really like the two sturdy handles on it as it is 50 pounds so is heavy to carry. I don’t know a lot about recharging it with solar but I think it will be a really great asset to keep things going in a storm outage. I also like the really big display read out on the front of it. it’s very simple to use even if you don’t understand all the ins and outs of power banks.
