Power stations and water

I drive with the top off all summer, so everything I buy for my Jeep I have to think about rain.

Iím considering buying a device like the Goal Zero power ďgeneratorĒ (e.g., https://www.rei.com/product/862517/g...ower-generator) but Iíd like to find something I donít have to worry about putting into a bag if itís going to rain.

I donít need to be able to use it while exposed to rain, but it shouldnít have all of its ports open when itís not in use.

Any experiences/suggestions?

Power generator is very misleading, does not generate any power but just stores it in a rechargeable battery. It has a 150 watt inverter to convert 12 volt DC to 120 volt AC which is not enough to run more than the smallest non inductive devices. IMO one of many lithium powered jump starters would be a much better option, smaller, lighter easy to store with the same features plus the ability to jump start your vehicle if your battery is dead.

Thatís why I put ĎgeneratorĒ in quotes; thatís what they call it.

And I know thatís a particularly small one. Iím more interested in this one: https://www.blackfire.com/shop/porta...-power-station

I have a lithium ion jumpstarter but looking for something bigger.

I too am interested in extra power to run my fridge and accessories.

With that I am considering the Jackery 240 and the https://www.amazon.com/Rockpals-Port...FKCTX8QSWSZ6NS.

Since you are wanting it have a high exposure rating also consider a dual battery setup that would isolate your source to a dryer portion of the vehicle. You would probably move back to a weather resistant fuse panel that could feet to weather proof adapters.

I’ve given thought to a dual battery setup but I want something separable from the Jeep.

Unfortunately there’s no good search term I can find to help me search for the larger power banks, so everything I find that’s water resistant are the small models that can handle phones. The quest continues.
