Anker 757 PowerHouse vs Jackery Explorer 1500 vs EcoFlow DELTA Portable Power Stations Compared

Sharing is caring!

Portable power stations have become increasingly popular in recent years, being a superior product to the old fashioned leisure batteries or traditional generators.

I reviewed the Jackery Explorer 500 and its SolarSaga 100 Solar Panel last year, as well as the EcoFlow River Max 600Wh, with both of them being superb options.

Both Jackery and EcoFlow have a wide range of power stations, with Jackery topping out at a 1534Wh capacity battery and EcoFlow going all the way up to 3.6kWh with the Delta Pro.

The other big brand in the game is Anker, and up until now, they have been on the smaller side, topping out with the Anker 545 Portable Power Station, capable of 778Wh. In the UK the only option I can see is the 400W Anker Portable Power Station, PowerHouse II.

This week, Anker announced the new Anker 757 PowerHouse, which ups the capacity to 1229Wh with a total 1500W output.

How does this compare with the larger power stations from Jackery and EcoFlow?

Anker 757 PowerHouse vs Jackery Explorer 1500 vs EcoFlow DELTA Comparison

This comparison ended up more interesting than my usual comparisons. There is quite a bit of difference between the three products, and I would say there is no clear winner.

The Jackery Explorer 1500 is perhaps the least favourable overall specification, it has the most expensive RRP, but it does have the largest capacity. While the other products round up the capacity, Jackery rounds down and has a 25% higher capacity than the Anker 757, which somewhat justifies the 30% price difference.

 You might argue that the Jackery Explorer 1000 is a better comparison, it is just 18.5% smaller in capacity but priced at $ 1,099, making it 21% cheaper than the other product.

Either way, both the Jackery Explorer 1000 and 1500 have a lower port count and slower charging.

The Anker 757 PowerHouse has the lowest capacity and lowest AC output of the three units but weighs considerably more. It also has the lowest solar charging capacity, and Anker hasn’t announced the price or availability of its solar panels yet.

That’s a poor start for Anker, until you look at the rest of the spec. In particular, Anker state that they use a new Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery which is what you find in the latest electric cars. This charges faster and has considerably higher durability than the Lithium-ion found in the other two.

Anker claim this can do 3000 charge cycles while retaining 100% capacity. That sounds too good to be true, but they have also backed this up with an impressive 5-year warranty, 2.5x what the other two brands offer. When you are spending $1400 on a battery, you want it to last as long as possible, and this should be a major selling point.

The charge speeds outclass the others too, 1 hour to 80% and 1.5 hours to 100%. This will be particularly important for anyone that is lives remotely or in a vehicle. You may only have limited time to charge your power station.

While the overall output wattage may be lower than the other two, you have the best port selection—six AC outlets, four USB-A, and then two USB-C with one capable of 100W.

Solar Panels

Anker will be launching a 100W solar panel, but at the moment, we don’t know the price.

The specification of the Anker 625 Solar Panel is:

  • Integrated USB-C port delivers 15W of direct power
  • XT-60 Output: 100W (can be combined for up to 300Ws)
  • USB-A Output: 1x USB-A 12W
  • USB-C Output: 1x USB-C 15W
  • Dimensions: 525 x 470 x 85 mm (Folded); 1446 x 525 x 45 mm (Unfolded)
  • Weight: 5kg / 11lbs

The other two brands have excellent options.

Jackery has the cheapest 100W solar panel at $300 RRP, but EcoFlow has a greater range with 400W panel that they have just launched for $1200. They also have a 220W Bifacial Solar Panel for $649. They don’t have a 100W model, but they have 110W at $399 RRP (but it is currently $299).

Overall

Anker may be the heaviest power station by a considerable margin and have the smallest output, but the impressive warranty and incredible longevity of the LiFePO4 will surely make the Anker 757 PowerHouse an appealing choice over the other options out there.

UK Price and Availability

At the moment, there is no word on UK availability for the Anker.

Jackery don’t sell the 1500W model in the UK at the moment, but the Jackery Explorer 1000 is £1,154.99 which is available on Amazon.

EcoFlow sells the Delta for £1,299. However, its port configuration appears to be a bit different. There are 4 UK sockets, then four USB-A and two USB-C. This is also available on Amazon.
