In this comparison, we’re putting the Bluetti AC180 vs Jackery 1000 (both the original Jackery Explorer 1000 and Plus models) portable power stations head-to-head. We will start the article by doing a general overview of the power stations, before comparing the key features that differentiate them. 

Both Bluetti and Jackery are very respected and well-trusted brands in the solar generator industry, and the AC180 and Explorer 1000 are some of the brands’ most popular models, so it’s out opinion that you can’t really go wrong with either – but our focus is to help you decide which portable power station best meets your needs. 

(Note: be sure to check the Bluetti and Jackery product pages for up-to-date prices. Sales prices may vary from the time of writing this blog post.)

A portable power station is a compact, off-grid system which uses a rechargeable battery to provide electricity. Compared to power banks, which often only provide USB outlets, portable power stations have a higher output, a larger capacity, and additional outlets (e.g. AC/wall) so that they can power a range of appliances.

Unlike simple batteries, portable power stations have additional components, such as a charge controller and an inverter. The charge controller regulates the power input and conversion from AC or DC sources, while the inverter converts the stored DC power back into AC power, which allows it to power standard appliances. 

When selecting a portable power station, you should consider the following key metrics:

  • Battery Capacity (Wh): The total energy capacity of the portable power station, which determines how long it can power devices (measured in Watt hours). 
  • Output (W): The maximum power output of the portable power station, which affects the type and number of devices it can run simultaneously. 
  • Battery chemistry: While this is tied closely to capacity and charging speed, you should always consider the battery chemistry of your portable power station, as this influences not only the durability of the product, but also the portability and safety. The most stable and hence safe battery type is the LiFePO4 (lithium iron phosphate), which is also the heaviest. 
  • Charging speed: How quickly the station can be recharged, which varies based on the charge controller’s efficiency and the type of recharging (e.g. AC, solar, car). 
  • Lifespan: How many charge/discharge cycles the portable power station can go through before the battery capacity is reduced to a specified percentage (e.g. 500 cycles to 80% capacity).
  • Portability: A combination of factors including the weight, size, and ease of carrying. Typically, the higher the battery capacity of a portable power station, the heavier and larger it will be. Some larger models feature wheels for better mobility.
  • Additional features: Includes the number and types of output ports (e.g. USB, AC), charging options (e.g. AC, solar, car), and extra functionalities like app integration for remote management.

Power Output

bluetti ac180 vs jackery 1000: power output comparison

The Bluetti AC180 has an output of 1800W for continuous use, which increases to 2700W in its ‘Power Lifting Mode’, which allows it to run high-power heating devices, including space heaters, electric blankets, and hair dryers. However, it should be noted that the AC180 should NOT be used to run an air conditioner or washing machine, whether in Power Lifting Mode or not. 

(If unfamiliar with Power Lifting Mode, one might wonder why one couldn’t simply use Power Lifting at all times. The answer is that Power Lifting Mode increases usable Watts by lowering the voltage. It is recommended to only use Power Lifting Mode on resistive loads.)

The Jackery Explorer 1000 has an output of 1000W, with a peak or surge power of 2000W. This means the AC output ports should only be used to power devices which operate continuously at 1000W or under, and the overall wattage should also stay within 1000W – otherwise the Explorer 1000 will turn off automatically. 

The Jackery Explorer 1000 Plus has a continuous power output of 2000W, which steps up to 4000W for peak output. This 2000W inverter means you should be able to power most of your devices without problem. 

All three models – the Bluetti AC180 and both Jackery Explorer 1000 models – allow simultaneous charging and discharging


The Bluetti AC180 has a battery capacity of 1152Wh, with its LiFePO₄ battery lasting over 3500 cycles before dropping to 80% capacity. This makes it well-suited for longer-term use in scenarios like camping trips, road trips, or emergency home power backup. For increased capacity, the AC180 supports capacity expansion with B80 expansion batteries only.

The Jackery Explorer 1000 comes with a battery capacity of 1002Wh, although its Lithium ion battery means it has a cycle life of 500 cycles before dropping to 80% capacity. This means the Explorer 1000 is suitable for powering daily gadgets and smaller appliances – however it is not as long-lasting as the Explorer 1000 Plus or the Ac180.

The Jackery Explorer 1000 Plus has a battery capacity of 1264Wh, with its LiFePO battery lasting 4000 cycles to 70% capacity. Its capacity can further be expanded up to 5000Wh with the addition of three external battery packs, making it exceptionally versatile for long-duration backup power, extensive outdoor use, and emergency situations. 

Battery Type

bluetti ac180 vs jackery 1000 explorer: battery type

Whilst the Jackery 1000 Explorer uses a Lithium ion battery, both the Bluetti AC180 and Jackery 1000 Explorer Plus have LiFePO4 batteries. The LiFePO4 batteries (lithium iron phosphate, also called ‘LFP’) are always a win in our books, primarily due to their superior safety profile among other things. 

LiFePO4 batteries are highly efficient, with a cycle life of 4-5 times longer than lithium ion batteries. They are also much less likely to overheat or catch fire, even when damaged (unlike their lithium ion counterparts), and come with built-in battery management systems to prevent overcharging.

The drawbacks to LiFePO4 batteries compared to lithium ion batteries are that they are heavier – lithium ion batteries are often popular choices for portable power stations due to their lighter weight. LiFePO4 batteries also have a higher upfront cost – however due to their durability and long life, they are more economic in the long run. 

Variety of Output Ports

The Bluetti AC180 has a variety of output ports, providing versatile options for a range of devices, including 2x 230V/7.8A AC outlets (1,800W in total, 2,700W surge power), 1x USB-C port (100W max), 2x pairs USB-A port (5V/3A), 1x 12V DC car outlet (12V/10A), 1x wireless charging pad (15W Max). It uses a Pure Sine Wave inverter.

The Jackery Explorer 1000 has x3 AC outlets (110V, 60Hz, 1000W, with 2000W surge power), 2x USB-A outlets (5V/2.4A, Quick Charge 3.0 x1, 18W max), 2x USB-C outlets (5V, 9V, 12V up to 3A, 18W max), and 1x car outlet (12V/10A).

The Jackery Explorer 1000 Plus has 3x AC outlets (120V, 60Hz, 2000W, with 4000W surge power), 2x USB-A outlets (5V/3A, 18W max), 2x USB-C outlets (5V, 9V, 12V, 15V, 20V up to 5A, 100W Max), 1x car outlet (12V/10A), and bypass mode AC input/output (100-120V, 60Hz, 15A max) (where it passes AC power directly from its input to its output without storing it in the battery).

As mentioned above, all three models allow simultaneous charging and discharging.

All three models provide charging options of AC (wall), solar, and car, although charging times vary.

The Bluetti AC180 offers three different AC charging modes, which each have their own charging times: Silent (260W, 4.9-5.4 hrs), Standard (around 1,000W, 1.7-2.2 hrs), and Turbo (around 1,440W, 1.3-1.8 hrs – or to 80% in 45 minutes). The Turbo charging feature is accessible through the Bluetti app. Additionally, the AC180 can also be charged using solar panels with a maximum input of 500W, typically achieving a full charge in about 3 hours under optimal conditions. Car charging is possible as well, though it takes longer, around 12 hours with a 12V input and 6 hours with a 24V input.

As for the Jackery Explorer 1000, AC wall charging allows for a full recharge in approximately 7.5 hours, but it should be noted that it doesn’t support direct AC charging, and you should use the external AC charger which is included. Solar charging with one 100W SolarSaga panel takes 13.5 hours, whilst two 100W panels takes about 10 hours. Car charging takes about 14 hours.

The Jackery Explorer 1000 Plus has much quicker charging times than the original Explorer 1000 model. It can be fully recharged by an AC wall outlet in 1.7 hours, making it one of the fastest-charging models in its category. Solar charging is as quick as 2-3 hours, and can be used with SolarSaga 100W or SolarSaga 200W panels, using the solar connector. (That’s 2 hours for 4x 200W panels, or 9 hours for 2x 100W panels.) Car charging takes half as long as the Explorer 1000 – around 7 hours for a full charge.


The Bluetti AC180 is the heaviest of the three, weighing about 35.3 lbs (16 kg), with dimensions of 13.39 x 9.72 x 12.48 inches (340 x 247 x 317 mm). While this makes it a little less portable than some lighter models, it is still very manageable, and although it lacks the same carrying handles as the Jackery units, it has hand slots in the top for carrying short distances. 

In typical Jackery fashion, the Explorer 1000 and 1000 Plus are more user-friendly in terms of portability, being both lighter and smaller than the Bluetti AC180, and with more convenient handle design.

The Jackery Explorer 1000 is more lightweight and compact than the AC180, making it highly portable for a variety of outdoor and emergency scenarios.
