Geneverse Vs Jackery Vs EcoFlow Solar Generators
Geneverse (Generark) offers power stations in two brandings: HomePower 1 and HomePower 2. The first is a mid-range 1,002Wh device that resembles the Jackery Explorer series, and this model, in particular, raises a threat to the Explorer 1000 when it comes to specs.
Geneverse HomePower 2, which comes in two variants (Starter and Plus), is, in fact, a high-capacity model. It takes on rivals like EcoFlow’s Delta Pro, as it is more of a home battery backup system than a portable solution.
Of course, the HomePower 2 is a rather handy and lightweight machine that you can take anywhere on your trips and travels. Anyway, we would like to have a detailed look at each model from the brands below.
Geneverse (Generark) Solar Generators
Geneverse HomePower One Power Station
Geneverse HomePower One is a versatile and ultra-portable power station. It is an ideal choice for keeping you and your family protected with full-time power in an off-grid situation like an outing or camping trip.
Specs-wise, the HomePower One is a 1002Wh power station, as said above. It sports a 1000-watt pure sine wave inverter with a surge capacity of 2000 watts, and it equips three 110V AC outlets to run your appliances.
Other charging options include two USB-C ports for 18W Power Delivery and single units of USB-A 5V/2.4A and USB-A 3.0 Quick Charge ports, plus a 12V/10A charger.
Well, the solar charging input is a 150W (max), 8mm port of 12-30V, 7.5A (max), and it also features a 150W 12-30V DC Anderson charging port. You can also recharge it quite quickly from an AC outlet.
The power station has a size of 13.07 x 9.15 x 9.57 inches and weighs 23.37 lbs. Design-wise, it looks like a Jackery Explorer in a blue shade in place of the former’s orange-shaded alternative.
The build quality of the product is very good, and you can carry it quite comfortably on its solid folding handle.
Compatible Solar Panel
For its compact power station, Geneverse has on sale an impressive 100-watt folding solar panel that looks exactly like Jackery’s SolarSaga 100 panel. According to the brand, the SolarPower One is a highly efficient mono solar charger with a 50% higher energy conversion rate.
It’s an easy-to-carry solar panel with solid plastic edges on both ends to make it easier to handle and last longer. You can place it on its strong, adjustable kickstands to make it perfect for harvesting solar power out in the wild.
The panel has a size of 24 x 21 x 1.38 inches once folded, and it expands up to 48 x 21 x 0.2 inches once unfolded. It weighs just 9.7 lbs. You can pair two units of the SolarPower One panel to charge the power station at full capacity.
Geneverse HomePower 2 Solar Generator
It is a higher-capacity, more home-oriented solar backup station from Geneverse with a portable profile, and it comes out to be an alternative to the large-capacity models from Bluetti and EcoFlow. HomePower 2 appears in two storage capacities: 2060Wh and 1566Wh, respectively, for HomePower 2 Starter and HomePower 2 Plus.
The models have pure sine wave inverters with a continuous power range of 1800W–2200W and a surge power range of 3600W–4400W at 110V/60Hz.
Thanks to the portable profiles, you can carry both variants of HomePower 2 in your RVs, boats, and more. The Starter variant of the machine looks to be a tough competitor to models like Jackery’s Explorer 1500, EcoFlow Delta, and Bluetti AC200P.
Meanwhile, HomePower 2 Plus is an alternative to models like the Jackery Explorer 2000, the Bluetti AC200 Max, and more. But, unlike its competitors, the HomePower 2 models are longer and more tubular, which makes them easier to move and more useful for portable uses.
Along with having the same designs, both machines have the same charging outlets.
In total, they feature nine outputs, which include four AC sockets at 110V/60Hz, a pair of 100W USB-C Power Delivery Ports, dual USB-A 3.0 Quick Charge ports, and one 12V/10A car socket.
By the way, when it comes to solar charging, the Starter has a 400W input, while the Plus has double the capacity with an 800W input. Both have the same 1000W AC charging inputs.
Likewise, they also have the same size of 10.16 x 10.16 x 23.19 in, but the weight has a slight difference because of the change in battery packs. The Starter weighs 45.2 lbs, while the Plus weighs 47.4 lbs.
Geneverse Vs Jackery Vs EcoFlow
With its two impressive variants of solar power stations, Geneverse challenges some of the top-selling models of other leading brands like Jackery, EcoFlow, and Bluetti.
As stated above, the HomePower One can be an ideal replacement for Jackery’s Explorer 1000 and the EcoFlow Delta original. The Geneverse device has a cute design and better build quality with decent storage capacity.
Meanwhile, the brand’s top-end HomePower 2 is a good performer in the mid-range segment of power stations. It takes on models like EcoFlow Delta Pro, Bluetti AC200 Max, and more.
Overall, Geneverse has attained good popularity with its models of solar-based power stations. As its models are available at affordable prices, you can surely go for them if you are looking at alternatives to Jackery, ExoFlwo, and Bluetti.
That has been our take on the Geneverse, Jackery, and EcoFlow solar battery backup systems.
