We’re teaming up with Ampace in this sponsored post to tell you more about the Ampace Andes 600 Pro Portable Power Station. Lithium-ion inverters (often called battery-powered generators or solar generators) are a great way to get portable power much more conveniently than using a gas generator. Take a closer look at how Ampace can supply your power needs in a variety of scenarios.
Using the Ampace Andes 600 Pro Portable Power Station
Capacity and Output
The 600 Pro uses a LiFePO4 hybrid battery system to hold 584wH of capacity. The cell selection here is key to making a safer portable power station along with a much longer service life for it. LFP cells are less likely to hit thermal runaway and can have quadruple (or more) the usable life of NMC cells.
The main question is… what can you run? With 600 running watts and support for appliances with up to an 1800-watt rating, it’s a pretty wide range.
The limit is effectively 5 total amps if you’re thinking in terms of what you plug into a wall outlet. With 600 watts available, you can even run/charge multiple items at once. Here are some examples:
- Laptop computers
- CPAP machine
- Portable fans
The output is “clean” pure sine wave energy, so it’s perfectly safe to run/charge your sensitive electronics. Just keep in mind the higher the energy needs of what you’re using, the faster you’ll drain the LiFePO4 hybrid battery system. One nice feature Ampace adds is an easy-to-read reverse-contrast display. It shows you the battery charge status, input and output watts, remaining charge time, and remaining runtime.
Here’s what Ampace has to say about the efficiency of this unit:
Using the third-generation semiconductor SiC (silicon carbide) material, equipped with DSP numerical control high-frequency bidirectional PCS technology, innovative topological structure, the inverter efficiency is as high as 95%, the heat generation of the same level is 20% smaller, the power is 5% more, and the temperature rise of heat generation is reduced by 30° C.
Outlets and Ports
Ampace includes a nice range of outlets and ports for charging and running. There are two 120V outlets, two fast-charging USB-A ports, two USB-C ports, and a 12V car outlet.
You can use multiple outlets simultaneously as long as you don’t draw more than 600 continuous watts. As we mentioned earlier, the more watts you draw, the faster you go through the battery. When you need to manage your power draw carefully, be sure to prioritize the most important items.
To use any of the ports, you first need to turn the 600 on. Press the on/off button and the display comes on along with LED lights on the top to let you know it’s active. At that point, the USB ports are ready to use. For the 120V outlets or 12V and DC ports, there’s a button you need to press near each set to activate them.
As you would expect, you can plug the power station into the wall to recharge it and that’s the fastest way to get up and running. If off-grid power is more up your alley, the 600 Pro also comes with a connector for solar panels and can handle up to 200 watts. A 12V vehicle charger is also in the box, making this an excellent option for overlanding and car camping.
In case you’re wondering, it is possible to charge and discharge at the same time. If you need to charge your phone while pulling in a solar recharge, you’re absolutely fine to do that.
It only takes one hour to charge the Andes 600 from 0–80%. You can get all the way to 100% in just 1.5 hours. Using a 200W solar panel, the charge time grows to between 3 and 6 hours. Finally, with a 12VDC car charger, you can get to 100% in around 5 hours.
Ampace includes a handy LED light on the front. To turn it on, press the button to the right of the light bar. Press multiple times to cycle through low, high, strobe, and SOS. Whether you need to signal in an emergency, need to cast some light around the immediate area, or just need some help seeing the ports to plug your device in, it’s a handy feature to have.
