The mid-range solar power station market is growing quite competitive. A lot of brands have recently turned up with elegant and innovative models. Zendure SuperBase Pro is an ideal example. Zendure, as you may know, is a notable brand of mobile power solutions, power banks, and other charging technologies.
The Zendure SuperBase Pro appears in two variants with different battery capacities. The SuperBase Pro 2000 is a 2096Wh power station with a Li-NMC battery, whereas its younger sibling SuperBase Pro 1500 is a 1456Wh device with a LifePO4 battery.
Both variants highlight built-in 4G IoT connectivity as the unique selling points. So, it is easy to remotely access the GPS, anti-theft, and other location-based services. Of course, this feature makes the Zendure power stations exceptional from its alternatives by the other brands like Goal Zero, Bluetti, and Jackery.
Update: Zendure is to put on display its new SuperBase Pro power stations at CES 2022.

Zendure SuperBase Pro 2000 and 1500
SuperBase Pro 2000 is a 2096Wh high-capacity power station. It is a real competitor to the models like Bluetti AC200P and Jackery Explorer 2000 with its bigger battery pack. Meanwhile, its 1456Wh entry-level variant is a competitor to EcoFlow Delta and Explorer 1500.
You can use the heavy-duty machine to power up a variety of your devices off the grid and on the go. This can comfortably back up your laptops, drones, mini-fridges, ovens, power tools, and more for a pretty long period. Check out the product on the Zendure website.
Other than the battery pack, both the PowerBase variants share the same features. They have the same 2000W inverters with a surge of 4000 watts and you can consume the AC power through six AC outlets.
Like all its earlier products, Zendure has launched it on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo with a flexible goal of 30K USD. It could collect 100% of the fund in a few minutes after the campaign launch. As of writing this, it has gathered nearly 165k USD from over 100 backers.
Faster charging from AC and solar sources is another attraction. With the GridFlow technology, you can charge the machines fully from a 100/120V AC socket in two hours at a speed of 1800 watts max. It will take only one hour to charge them up to 80%.
Meanwhile, the machines can handle a solar output of up to 1800 watts via AC input. Thanks to the PVMax and the High Voltage Solar Technology (HVST) technologies, they can support a solar array of 60-160V.
By the way, they feature a solar DC input of up to 600W. That is, you can use a solar input of 12-60V, up to 600 watts max to charge them with the brand’s portable solar charger via the XT60 port.
Zendure offers a 200W four-fold, high-efficiency mono solar charger. You can pair three of the units to achieve a charging speed of 600 watts, which the Zendure machine requires.
The AC and solar DC options together can recharge the devices at a speed of 2400 watts. Thus, they can be charged fully in less than two hours. Also, you can charge them from a 120W carport and a gas generator.
The devices sport 14 various charging outlets. They include six AC sockets, multiple USB and DC ports.
More clearly, the Zendure devices come with six 100/120V, 2000W AC outlets, an auto output, four USB-C sockets with two 100W ports, and as many 20W units.
The carport included is a 13.6V/10A regulated 136W port, and there are also three 12V DC barrel ports.
Design and Size
The suitcase-style machine is built like a tank. The heavy machine is suitable for stacking up some boxes on top of it during your trips and van life.
The included rugged wheels and strong collapsible handle will make it a brilliant choice for portable users. You can easily carry the toughly-built machine anywhere on your trips for adventures and explorations.
Above all, a 6.1-in large display is another great thing. It can offer you real-time data on its performance, system info, battery status, and more.
An included mobile app also provides you full control of the power station from remote locations.
Both the variants have the same size of 17.56 x 10.51 x 13.86 in, but SuperBase 2000 and 1500 have a weight of 46.5 lbs and 48 lbs respectively.
Why Should You Buy
1. Dual Battery Variants
One of the most exciting things about the Zendure power station is that it comes in two battery variants.
As you see, the high-capacity variant features a Li-NMC battery pack, which is the same we have in most of the popular electric vehicles on the market.
Meanwhile, the low-capacity one equips a common LifePO4 battery pack. As you know, the LiFePo4 cells enjoy longer lifespans, with the one in the Zendure lasting 6000 cycles to 60% capacity or 3000 cycles to 80%.
It is when the Li-NMC cells only last 3000 cycles to 60% capacity or 1500 cycles to 80%. Overall, we are lucky to have two battery variants at different prices, giving us a chance to pick the right one as per the need and budget.
2. AmpUp Technology for Heavy Appliances
The 2000W Zendure power station highlights an AmpUp technology that can boost up its inverter power to 3000 watts. So, you can use the power station to comfortably run appliances above 2000 watts. The brand’s patented Dynamic Voltage Output is the technology behind AmpUp.
It works by lowering the output voltage and increasing the current flow. Hence, the Zendure can smoothly run power-hungry appliances. As the inverter can maintain pure sine wave output, there is nothing to worry about the safety of your appliances.
3. Household-Grade UPS
Zendure SuperBase Pro 2000 features a home-grade UPS functionality.
It is a cool way to power up your home during blackouts. An unexpected power interruption will no longer affect your life as you have a SuperBase Pro connected to your home power outlet. It can instantly switch your home over to battery power and smoothly support appliances below 2000 watts.
4. Strongly Built to Roll
Of course, the Zendure power station has a strong build. Zendure has been long known for the durability of its power banks. This one is also not an exception. Made with quality materials, you get a tank-like power station for easy moving on any terrain out in the wild.
It features a strong telescopic aluminum handle, heavy-duty wheels, and an amazingly lower center of gravity to make its moving easier. You can roll it across any terrain and enjoy unlimited off-grid power right anywhere.
5. High-Efficiency 200W Solar Panel
As said above, Zendure offers an exclusive solar panel for the devices. That is a four-fold 200W highly efficient mono solar panel, which can convert up to 22.5%. It comes with adjustable kickstands so that you can position it anywhere easily for maximum results.
Having an IP67 rating, you can certainly take the solar panel anywhere on your trips with no worry. To achieve the maximum solar input of the SuperBases, you will have to pair three units of the same together.
Once in action, the solar panels will be able to charge your machines fully in a few hours under ideal conditions.
That has been our take on the Zendure SuperBase Pro 2000 power station, which the company has launched on Indiegogo for the crowdfunding campaign. It has already attracted a lot of backers on the platform.
Of course, as said above, the revolutionary power station will come out to be a big challenge to the other models in the mid-range solar power market, including Bluetti AC200P, Jackery Explorer 2000, and more.
