While many of the products we review here are readily available to purchase and operate without a license, we always recommend hiring a qualified electrician to install and demonstrate their use.
In some cases, improper use and installation may result in a breach of insurance. Even worse, you could be putting yourself or your family at risk as an incorrectly installed electrical device could start a fire. So, don’t risk it - seek the services of a fully licensed electrician instead.
When it comes to camping or RV trips, you will want to take a backup power station with you. Not only will this help to charge up your phone and electronic devices, but it is a great option to fall back on should your other power sources fail.
In addition to this, portable power stations are even useful to keep in the home, as they do provide good back up in emergency situations. When it comes to knowing which power station to purchase, the choice is not always easy.
There are so many different power station options available to purchase, all of which have varying specifications. However, to make this decision easier for you, this article is focusing on one specific product, the Puleida Portable Power Station.
We will be taking a closer look at this power station and reviewing it in detail to find out whether it is worth purchasing. We will be focusing on aspects such as the cost, power outputs, wattage, and recharge times.
We have split our review of this power station into useful specification sections.
The first thing you will want to take into consideration when purchasing a portable power station is the price. Looking at the price of this specific model, it is very reasonable. It is one of the cheaper options to purchase.
Even so, it is still a fantastic option to consider. Just because this is a less expensive option, you are not losing out on the quality at all.
Next, let’s take a look at this generator’s specifications.
One of the best things about this generator is how lightweight and compact it is. Given the power it provides, you would not expect it to be so compact, and it can almost fit into the palm of your hand.
The exact specifications for this generator are 8.1 x 5.5 x 6.5 inches. When looking at the weight of the power station, it is only 7 pounds.
This is fantastic for use when camping because the power station can be easily transported and will not weigh down your bags significantly. In addition to this, it does also feature a useful carry handle, which makes transportation easier too.
Being so lightweight, the power station can be placed in a cupboard, and will not take up too much space when it is not in use. This makes it a great back up option for you to keep in your home.
The wattage of the Puleida Portable Power Station is 300 watts. While it is not the most powerful option on the whole. This is still powerful enough to use with many different appliances. However, this will mean that it does have some limitations, especially when looking at larger kitchen appliances, for example.
The voltage of the Puleida Portable Power Station is 110 volts, which is a good amount. The battery pack used in this device is a 296Wh backup lithium.
As we have already covered, the design of this power station is fantastic. It is very compact, and easy to use. The dials and buttons are straightforward and are not overly complicated. Everything is clearly labelled.
In addition to this, the display screen is LED. This is a great feature, especially if you are using the power station outside, or when there is no light. This means that you are still able to see all of the figures with no issues.
All of the different outlets are well spaced out, which means that you can charge and power a number of devices at the same time, which is useful. The battery is long-lasting and reliable, which are two important things to consider when choosing a portable power station.
The output options for this power station are fantastic. You have many options to choose from, and on the whole, you are not limited in what you can charge or power, especially when it comes to smaller electrical items.

- 1 x PD Outlet (65W Max)
- 1 x PD Outlet (18W)
- 1 x QC 3.0 Outlet (18W Max)
- 1 x USB-A Outlet (12W Max)
- 1 x DC Outlet (share with car charging port)
On the whole, there is a good amount of outlets to choose from. However, the limitations do lie in devices that are over 300 Watts in power.
As a result, if you are looking for an option that is going to charge larger electronics, then this is not the best option to consider. But, if you are looking for a backup for small electronics, this is the ideal power station.
You are able to charge 7 different electronics at any one given time, which is fantastic. This means that you can get as much use out of the power station as possible.

This power station can be recharged in as little as 2.5 hours, which is brilliant. When it is recharging, it can use both the DC and DP inputs at the same time.
However, the PD charger does not come included in the box, and this will need to be purchased in addition to the power station.
While the Puleida Portable Power Station can be charged by the wall, it also features solar panels too. This is great if you are looking for a more renewable and clean energy source.
These solar panels are particularly useful to have if you are camping off grid as you will still be able to have access to power, even if you do not have a direct power source.
There are a total of 5 different ways to recharge the power station which is particularly useful and this can be changed depending on your specific situation. The overall battery capacity is 80000mAh. When compared to competitors with a similar specification, this is far higher, which is great.
In addition to being a portable power station, the Puleida also features emergency features too. If you are in an emergency situation, this is particularly useful.
