Charging

Green energy first: We advocate using the green energy first.

Battery Saving Mode: When this feature is enabled, it limits the battery charging capacity to 85% and the discharging capacity to 15%, and the battery will only be charged when the capacity is below 80% to extend the battery life. Use the Jackery App for settings of this function. Quiet Charging Mode: noise ≤ 30dB in this charging mode, you can set this function in Jackery App.

Energy Saving Mode To avoid forgetting to turn off the output which results in battery consumption, the product turns the Energy Saving Mode on by default. This occurs when no device is connected or the connected device is less than or equal to a certain value. (Refer to the user manual) for more details), the device will automatically turn off all outputs after 12 hours.

Charging via Mains

Charging via AC Wall Outlet:

Please use the AC cable included in the package.

Taking its capacity into account, the Jackery 3000 Pro exhibits remarkably swift charging capabilities, courtesy of the 1800W AC charger. When connected to a wall outlet, I was pleasantly surprised to witness a full charge completed in under 2.5 hours!

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.

AC Output On/O: Ensure that the main power supply is turned on. Press the AC Button, the AC Output operation indicator lights up. Then you can connect the equipment that needs AC charging. Press the AC Button again to turn off the AC Output.

AC Output Reset Button: When the Reset Button pops up, you need to remove the load and press the Reset Button to reset. AC Input Reset Button: When the Reset Button pops up, you need to remove the AC charge cable and press the Reset Button to reset.

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.

Jackery will not be responsible for the losses caused by using other brands’ accessories or 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 3000 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.

The Jackery SolarSaga 80 supports the parallel connection or the parallel and then series connections to charge the product. The single input port of the Jackery Explorer 3000 Pro supports the input of up to six pieces of SolarSaga 80 solar panels, and two input ports support the input of up to 12 pieces of SolarSaga 80 solar panels. (When the power is connected with six solar panels in a single input port, the solar panels shall be divided into two groups, and each group of three solar panels shall be self-connected in parallel and then connected to Jackery Explorer 3000 Pro through the solar series connector. The solar series connector needs to be purchased separately.) For detailed operation instructions on the self-parallel connection of the Jackery SolarSaga 80 solar panel, please refer to the user manual.

Hybrid Charging

The primary and eco-friendly method of charging a solar generator is through solar panels. These panels convert sunlight into electricity, which is then used to charge the battery of the generator. When sunlight is available, the solar panels harvest energy and send it directly to the battery.

Hybrid charging ensures that the solar generator remains functional and can charge its battery even in situations where there isn’t enough sunlight or when solar charging alone is insufficient. The secondary power input serves as a reliable backup, providing a continuous power supply as needed.

Discharging

Your runtime will vary depending on how much power your device uses.
All Jackery power stations support pass-through charging. Pass-through charging is a feature that allows the power station to be used at the same time when it is recharging.

Low Battery Indicator 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 on.

Rapid Discharging

Energy Saving Mode: To avoid forgetting to turn off the output which results in battery consumption, the product turns the Energy Saving Mode on 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 turn off all outputs after 12 hours.

Slow Discharging

Battery Saving Mode: When this feature is enabled, it limits the battery charging capacity to 85% and the discharging capacity to 15%, and the battery will only be charged when the capacity is below 80% to extend the battery life. Use the Jackery App for settings of this function. Quiet Charging Mode: noise ≤ 30dB in this charging mode, you can set this function in Jackery App.

Performance

The MPPT technology ensures 99% solar charging efficiency. It takes less than 1.8 hours to fully charge the power station. Bonus: Full wall charging in 1.8 hours, and also supports car charging. You’ll never have to worry about power outages anymore!

Weighing just 63.93 lbs, Jackery’s all-new Explorer 3000 Pro is 30% lighter and smaller than similar products of the same capacity. The minimal, ergonomic design of the Jackery Explorer 3000 Pro features an aluminum alloy pull rod and non-slip silicone strip for easy maneuverability and convenient stowing away. Enjoy outstanding charging efficiency with the simple and speedy setup.

When performing at temperatures between -10 to -20°C, the output power of the Explorer 3000 Pro will auto-adjust according to its remaining battery level (i.e. at a 60-100% battery level, it will adjust to 3000W output power). With 30-60% remaining, it will adjust to 2000W, and when the battery level is below 30%, the output power is reduced to 800W.)

9 temperature sensors determine the peak temperature position according to a large number of simulation experiments. The main heating-generated components (cells and inverters) are equipped with an independent air duct design for precise temperature monitoring and variable speed fans, which are adjusted in real-time according to temperature fluctuations, maximizing quietness and heat dissipation.

FAQ

The Jackery Explorer 3000 Pro Portable Battery is estimated to have over 70% of your original capacity after 2000 cycles, with a gradual reduction after that. (Note: this doesn’t mean the battery only has a 2000 cycle life span. It means that up until 2000 cycles, the unit can perform at its best. However, due to battery degradation there will be a gradual decline in performance after 2000 cycles.)

The Jackery Explorer 3000 Pro can run any device that requires less than 120V and 3000W. You can calculate the charge time using the following formula: 3024Wh* 0.85 / operating power of your device.
