HomePower ONE Review: Everything you need to know about Generark’s portable battery solution.
Since moving to the midwest, there has been more than one occasion where we have lost power. It’s a rude awakening after spending so many years in Los Angeles, where we only had a handful of blackouts lasting just a few hours.
Thankfully for us, we had the Generark HomePower ONE for review, a reliable, and versatile backup battery that stores enough backup battery power to keep your family protected and connected at home.
Generark Solar Generator
Generark was kind enough to send us their Generark Solar Generator bundle to review, including the Generark HomePower ONE Portable Battery and SolarPower ONE: Portable Solar Panel. The latter isn’t necessary to use the HomePower ONE, but since my wife and I are interested in camping and taking road trips, it’s the perfect companion for us charging on the go.
Single Charge = 7 Days of Power
When it comes to portable generators or batteries, the first feature I look for is how long and how much power it holds. The Generark HomePower ONE offers up to 7 days of power supply on a single charge. That is far and away more than I could ask for when using it at home or when we take it on the road.
To charge the HomePower One, simply plug it into a car, an AC outlet, or with the SolarPower ONE portable solar panel.
Charge or Harness Energy from the Sun
When traveling, having the SolarPower ONE portable solar panels aren’t exactly essential, but extremely useful when you’re in need of a charge.
Each panel consists of 32 Monocrystalline solar cells (SunPower Maxeon Gen III), offering 50% higher solar power conversion efficiency compared to traditional solar panels. The solar cells were invented at Stanford University and made in the USA.
Generak HomePower ONE Compatibility
So what exactly can you plug into the Generak HomePower ONE? Pretty much anything.
As you can see from the above photo, compatibility includes:
- 2 USB-C outputs with PD 18W
- 1 USB-A with 5V/2.4A
- 1 USB-A with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0
- 1 car outlet with 12V/10A
- 3 AC outlets with the pure-sine wave, supporting 1000W rated power and 2000W surge power at 110V
Final Thoughts on the HomePower ONE: Backup Battery Power Station
During a weekend road trip, we had a hot plate, my laptop, and both of our iPhones plugged in charging all at once. It was perfect for when I needed to check into work for an hour a day while away from the house.
Would I recommend you buying one for your house? Absolutely! Without a question, it’s the best portable battery I’ve reviewed to date. The solar panels are pretty great, too, but not a must. If you can spare the extra $300 then go for it, but I think you would be just as happy with the portable battery itself.
