So far so good. Panels are well made and easy to manage. Base units ergonomics and weight make it easily managed. Power output is adequate for my needs and the cost per watt is affordable. Add in the 15% discount we got and the free shipping, made it a good buy for us.
Received well packed. Tested a few items that I will be using this spring camping. Seems well built and will power what I need
We have a solar system but it was broken for several days. We used our new Oupes solar generator in the meantime. It worked great!
My power stations (I have 5 of them) are solid, compact and light weight. I use them every day to charge and power many things in the house such as my wifi modem and television. For this just job, my 1200 is portable and quickly recharges. My 2400 machine handles the bigger jobs like the coffee pot and even the toaster oven...and again recharges quickly even in this December Connecticut sun! I'm hoping in the future Oupes releases for sale an even more powerful power station!
I read other reviews saying to charge it up, then run it all the way down, then charge it again. So, I charged it up on the 200W charger (nice!), then ran my whole computing UPS rig off of it. After 3 hours of ~115 - 150W consumption, the oupes 1200 was down to 60% before I disconnected it. Then, I ran my TV, DVD/VCR (don't ask), and a 60W incandescent lamp (total ~130W) for another 1.5 hours before the oupes 1200 was down to 37%. I stopped there, and put it on the charger until I got to 60%. I could then test out the fold-out solar panels, and it was making 135-148+ Watts in direct sunlight, and finished off the charge in less than 3 hours. Unfortunately, I did not monitor the time as closely as I would have liked.
I’m installing this in my overland trailer as my power source. Plan is for this to run my fridge, lights in my RTT and some lights on the trailer at night. Tested this with my 63qt single zone 12v fridge and was blown away by how long it will run it. Ran it on max mode the entire time and when the compressor turned on it was pulling 63w. From room temperature it cooled it to 41 deg and ran for two days and was only down to the 30% bar. Used the 200w solar panel from the package to charge it back up on a mostly sunny day and was getting on average 145-155w till the sun went down. Here in SoCal that means I have endless refrigeration and lots of surplus to charge other devices while the sun is up.
It came with a 60% charge so I could play with it right away. I love love this purchase! It is portable so I can use it in the house, she shed or anywhere with no off gassing or noise at all. I love it. It is my little pride and joy.
I had never heard of OUPES before my purchase of this unit. I can tell you that before I made my purchase I reached out to their support and was pleasantly surprised to receive an immediate response.
Once I received the unit the instructions were very clear on how to use and maintain the unit and so far everything has worked without issue. I have already owned the unit for about 6 months now and have gone through several drains and recharges and everything has worked flawlessly.
if you are looking for a good battery backup unit then this is a great unit. Thank you Oupes for such a great and stable product!
Best LiFePO4 Power Station I Have Seen!!!
I have spent a lot of time dealing with portable power stations. There are a lot of things to take into consideration when choosing the right one. For this particular power station, I was looking for longevity and feature set. The OUPES 1100W has USB-C PD Ports, USB-3 Quick Charge ports, and standard 110v AC ports. The batteries in this model are LiFePo4. This means that they are the latest and greatest lithium type. They last for years and years. I have had to replace SLA batteries almost yearly due to degrading performance. These lithium batteries are capable of last up to 10+ years before hitting replacement level degradation. This is one of the only power stations that I have seen with this type of battery, so far. Standard SLA batteries can be depleted to around 50% before they start to encounter voltage drop and sped up degradation issues. Lithium batteries can be depleted to near 0% without any issues. So, this means that this power station of 992Wh vs a standard SLA one of the same 992Wh can perform almost twice as well in real world scenarios.
Affordable, Portable Power
I reviewed all of the similar solar generators of that wattage. This is a remarkable unit at a remarkable price.
Great power station with a lot of features.
I purchased this with the intention of using while camping and as a home "power out" scenario. I have charged two devices so far (AC and USB) with no issues. I plan to use this as a backup for my wife's CPAP machine in the event of power loss. This along with two gas powered invertor generators will help in most situations. We did use this with the CPAP fully charged and it ran all night with 15% remaining. That was with running the heater function on the CPAP. It took 6-1/2 hours to recharge it back to 100% with the AC charger.
Great quality power station!
This unit is working great. Through my usage after 4 discharge cycle, I got 470wh using Ac. Dc I used to power my iceco vl45 for almost 2 day. The screen has battery remaining time, battery percentage I love it. So far so good.
Love the extra power battery
My family love being outdoors and we do lots of camping. Bring a portable power station will help us so much. It is reliable and efficient. It didn't take long to charge, took me about 5-6 hours fully charged. Multi outlets is a plus, we used it for cooking and heater while camping.
It also great for home emergencies when the lights goes out. The price is within my budget. Love the display and the carry case for the plug-ins. The weight isn't that heavy. This is essential for outdoors activities and I definitely recommend this product.
I did a lot of research and watched a lot of YouTuber video regarding portable power generators. The OUPES 1200W fit my needs the best.

A little heavier than I expected（24.25lb)
This generator has all the functions that are needed and it seems to be of high quality.
I LOVE this product. My wife is NOT a camper unless you consider Hilton a tent. This generator has changed her thoughts on camping. We can now visit northern Michigan in comfort and have some finer things in life supported by this great generator. I recommend everyone to try this product.
performed very well in all my testings
Bought a Jackery and returned it and bought this. Having tried several others, the OUPES is by far my favorite.
This is for a few different reasons. First, Its hardware and software design is very sophisticated and I use it for car tires and it works well, included all my testings.
The display is the best. It large and tells you exactly what power is coming into the unit and what power is going out. And provides not just the accurate battery remaining, but how long that battery will last at current usage rates. I just adjust how much power I'm using, so I can get through the camping day, and I love its portability and is lightweight.
The other features I like are the Type C + Wall outlet (quick charge), and the pure sine wave inverter provide the clean, stable electricity, which is not only more reliable for sensitive electronic devices, but also much safer.
I'm already looking for a solar panel to pair it with. Awesome deal ! This is definitely one of the best units available as far as watt hours for price.
