Charging

Green energy first: We advocate using green energy first.

This product supports two modes of charging at the same time: solar charging and AC wall charging. When the product is being charged, the orange circle around the battery percentage will light up in sequence. When charging other devices, the orange circle will stay on.

Charging via Mains

Charging via AC Wall Outlet:

Please use the AC cable included in the package. When AC wall charging and solar charging are turned on at the same time, the product will give priority to solar charging and both methods will be used to charge the battery at the maximum permissible power.

Charging in a Vehicle:

This product can be charged with a 12V car charger. Please start the vehicle before charging to prevent draining the car battery and prevent your vehicle from being unable to start. Meanwhile, please ensure that the car charger and the car cigarette lighter provide a good connection, and ensure that the car charger is fully inserted. In addition, if the vehicle is running on bumpy roads, it is forbidden to use the car charger in case it burns due to a poor connection.

Vehicle charging is only applicable in 12V vehicles, not in 24V ones. Please do not charge this product in a 24V vehicle to avoid personal injury and property loss.

It is recommended to use Jackery accessories – solar panels for solar charging. The Company will not be responsible for any loss caused by non-standard operation and losses caused by using other brands’ solar panels.

Charging via Solar

If one or two solar panels are connected, you can directly connect the DC8020 port of the solar panel to the DC8020 port of the Jackery Explorer 1500 Pro for charging. If three or four solar panels are connected, please refer to the method shown in the user manual to charge through the solar series connector ( Note: The solar series connector is not in standard configuration, so you need to purchase it separately). Please refer to the detailed operation instructions of the solar series connector before using it.

When the two inputs are used at the same time, please make sure to use the same type of solar panel and the number of solar panels in the two inputs must be the same to avoid damage or charging problems of the equipment due to inconsistent voltages of the two channels.

Hybrid Charging

Hybrid charging allows you to use the solar generator both indoors and outdoors. You can charge it at home using the wall outlet or take advantage of solar energy when camping or during power outages.
With hybrid charging, the solar generator can be charged from multiple sources, including the wall outlet, car, and solar panels. This ensures a continuous power supply, even in adverse weather conditions or when you’re on the move.

Discharging

Your runtime will vary depending on how much power your device uses. When the battery is less than 20%, the Low Battery Indicator will stay on. When less than 5%, the Low Battery Indicator will flash. When it is being charged, the Indicator will be off.

Rapid Discharging

To avoid forgetting to turn off the output during use which results in battery consumption, the product turns the Low Power Mode off by default. This occurs when no device is connected or the connected device is less than or equal to a certain value. The device will automatically shut down after 12 hours.

To turn on the Low Power Mode Long press the AC Button and DISPLAY Button until the Low Power Mode icon lights up. In Low Power Mode, please remember to turn off the output to avoid battery consumption. To turn o the Low Power Mode Long press the AC Button and DISPLAY Button until the Low Power Mode icon disappears on the screen.

Slow Discharging

The capacity of the 1500 Pro will be reduced to 70% of its starting level after at least 2000 cycles. That is a lot of cycles – if you charged and discharged the 1500 Pro twice a week, it would last approximately 5 years and still have 70% capacity.

Performance

The Explorer 1500 Pro solar generator is equipped with the Dual PD100W design, three 1800W AC charging ports, two USB-C charging ports, and a car charger, allowing for fast charging of all household devices and gadgets imaginable.
