If you are an outdoor enthusiast, you know how important it is to choose the right-sized solar generator or portable power station for your needs. If you choose one with a lower capacity without knowing your needs, it may not be able to power all the devices at once. If you select the one with higher capacity, it may result in overspending if you just want to use it to power your phone, laptop, drone, camera, or other small essentials.

Determining the right size of a portable power station is based on how many electrical appliances are intended for use. In this article, we will take a deeper look at how a POWEREPUBLIC T3000(3000W/3200Wh) portable power station can run from home backup to camping. If you are unfamiliar with Wh which stands for watt-hour, and W which stands for wattage, CLICK here to learn more.

Knowing Starting and Running Power

Understanding the distinction between starting power and running power is the initial step.

  • Starting power is the momentary surge of wattage required to initiate a device, akin to the sudden power needed to switch it on.

  • Running power pertains to the wattage necessary to maintain continuous device operation.

Differentiating between these two terms is crucial. While some devices may specify their input power as running watts, the starting power can be considerably higher. Consequently, it's important to be aware of the starting power of an appliance to ensure it doesn't exceed the surge capacity of a portable power station, preventing potential damage or shutdown.

What Can A 3000-Watt Power Station Run?

A 3000W portable power station, like POWEREPUBLIC T3000, can power a range of heavy-duty devices from air conditioners, microwaves, and electric grills to small devices - items commonly used around the home, at trade sites, camping, caravanning, etc.

We can use the formula below to estimate the working time:

Working Time(hours)=PPS's capacity*0.85/powering devices' operating power.

(The reason we multiply by 0.85 is that the inverter that changes the 12V DC power to 120V AC power isn’t 100% efficient, but somewhere about 85%.)
