New to the forum and I’m hoping this thread generates some good discussion on portable power stations. I’m going to be living out of my cargo van full time traveling for work for at least a few years and want to travel cheap so that I’m pocketing most of the per diem. In my recent past I lived in a small RV full time for years so I am experienced at living simply and boon docking. If I’m not working I’ll be doing outdoor activities like hiking or trail running, so besides sleeping I’ll be in the van as little as possible and I’ll be boon docking the vast majority of the time. What is your opinion on what portable power station and solar panels I should get based on my planned usage and budget as follows: I’ll have a 12V fridge and other simple recharging needs like cell phone, laptop, electric shaver, etc. If it’s warm when I’m in the van I’d want a low wattage fan running and may also install a fantastic fan. When it’s cold I’d likely use a low wattage electric blanket and/or some other low wattage heat solution. I’ll never be running a microwave, AC, hair dryer, electric power tools, or any other devices that use high wattage. I’d mainly recharge the station via solar and during my commute to and from work, I wouldn’t be plugged in to AC that often to recharge. Since I’m not electrically inclined at all and my power needs based on research would be considered somewhat simple I think I’ll go with a portable power station. My budget for the portable power station plus some solar hooked up to it is $2,000 give or take a little. Based on research so far it appears that capacity is most important to me and considering my budget I’m leaning toward the Bluetti EB240 or Bluetti AC200P . Any input on these two units or other portable power stations factoring in my power needs and budget is appreciated!
