MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Explorer 1000 Transportable Energy Station and Photo voltaic Panels From Jackery

For this week’s giveaway, we partnered with Jackery to give MacRumors readers the chance to win an Explorer 1000 portable power plant and two 100W SolarSaga portable solar panels that can be used to charge it when no power source is available.

In combination, Jackery calls this his Solar Generator 1000 set and it is an ideal solution for camping or emergencies, because as long as the sun is shining, you will not run out of power. With an output of 1002 Wh, a rated output of 1000 W and a surge power of 2000 W, it is powerful enough to meet the needs of most electrical appliances.

The Explorer 1000 portable power plant is priced at $ 999 and is Jackery’s highest capacity power plant option. Jackery manufactures a number of UL-certified power plants that are available at different prices.


Several connections are available for charging several devices at the same time. The E1000 has two 18W PD USB-C ports, two 12W USB-A ports, a DC carport and three AC power sockets. It works with cameras, televisions, computers, lamps, communication devices, grills, fans, and medical devices like CPAP machines.

At 22 pounds, the Explorer 1000 is heavy but has a convenient handle that can be used to move it around as needed. On the front there is an LCD display with information about charging / discharging processes and details about the battery life. The fans integrated in the device prevent it from getting too warm.

With an optional solar charger, the Explorer 1000 can be charged even when no electricity is available. It can be charged in seven hours from a socket or within eight hours with two 100 W SolarSaga panels from Jackery. It can be kept and should be charged every three to six months when used as an emergency backup solution.


Jackery’s 100W SolarSaga panels, available for $ 300, can be plugged into the Explorer 1000 or one of Jackery’s other power plants for power on the go. According to Jackery, the solar panels have high conversion efficiency which produces more energy and performs better than other modules in hot weather. The SolarSaga panels have a USB-C port and a USB-A port and can also be used to charge smaller devices.
