Duracell Powerpack Pro 1300

The Duracell Powerpack Pro 1300 is a highly reliable, versatile and rugged portable power station that you can count on in any situation.  Couple this power source with the recommended solar panel kit for continued extended use in a power outage, remote location or long term survival situation. 

NOTE:  This item is in our archived (older) recommendations folder.  Please see our new article on the Best Foldable Solar Panels & Portable Power Stations In 2020.  For preppers, we recommend that every prepper have at least one Foldable Solar Panel and one Small Solar Generator that has LiFePO4 batteries, such as the Energizer & Beaudens portable power stations in different sizes.  The LiFePO4 batteries have a 10 year life, 2000 recycles, no memory effect, and very low standby power consumption.

Added Tip 

The one item that is perfectly mated for this power station is the Instapark Mercury27 27-watt Compact Foldable Solar-powered Battery Charger with 12V Output which is not included and must be purchased separately.  If you use a solar panel for recharging any 12V DC batteries, you must also have a solar controller so that you do not overcharge or damage the batteries or power station.  The Instapark Mercury27 Solar Powered Battery Charger has everything that you need in a complete set including a foldable portable solar panel with built in solar controller, and all of the connectors and adapters that you will need to charge your power station or any other 12V DC battery using Alligator Clamps.  The Instapark Mercury 27 is compatible with charging Instapark Mars20S, Duracell Powerpack Series, & Wagan Power Dome Series power stations and also has dual USB Ports for charging Apple iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, Amazon Kindles, Android Smart Phones, and Tablet Computers.  This facilitates charging your power station or any 12V DC battery simultaneously while charging your electronic devices.  If you couple the Instapark Mercury 27 with your power station, you can have ongoing extended use of your electronics in a remote location or extended long term power outage or survival scenario, making these two items perfect for preppers and survivalists.

More Information

From power outages and roadside emergencies to remote job sites and the great outdoors, the heavy-duty Duracell 600 Watt / 1300 Amp Powerpack Pro will be there to provide plentiful power for work, recreation and emergency backup situations. Do you frequently need extra power for your tools or accessories, but none is available? If an outlet is not in reach or plugging into the dashboard's cigarette lighter is simply not an option, the Duracell 600 Watt / 1300 Amp Powerpack Pro is the perfect solution. This robust stand-alone battery based power source is powerful enough to run many popular electronics, small appliances and power tools, and can even jump-start vehicle batteries. A multitude of safety and emergency features assures safe, simple plug and play operation, even when used by consumers who possess only basic technical knowledge. The heart of the Duracell 600 Watt / 1300 Amp Powerpack Pro is a sealed, non-spillable 18 ampere-hour AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) battery. The Powerpack Pro can be safely and conveniently recharged from any household AC outlet so that it is ready to go whenever you need it. This robust battery is tied to a power inverter that provides 600 watts of power to its two grounded AC outlets and one DC socket. Multiple outlets give you the flexibility and convenience to operate several appliances at once, while the 4 level LED Fuel Gauge displays the Duracell Powerpack's battery charge level. Internal protection circuitry ensures long inverter life by safeguarding against overload and over-temperature conditions. An audible alarm also signals during under-voltage situations, alerting you to any possible safety concerns. Please note: this item is not intended for use with sump pumps – Due to the energy surge required to start most sump pumps the Duracell 600 Watt / 1300 Amp Powerpack Pro is not well suited for this application.

NOTE:  The Duracell Powerpack 1300 replaces the Powerpack 600.

Sample Amazon Feedback

"How did I live without this?  This power pack has been a great. I used it this winter to boost my car battery on cold start mornings. I used it in another car to trickle charge a dying battery through the cigarette lighter at midnight on a Saturday night. I've used it camping to provide lights and power to my phone, laptop and coffee pot. I even keep it charged at home and used it briefly to provide lights when the power went out. Recommended."

"Countless uses and works like a charm every time.  I have used to this from jump starting my car to driving a car with the alternator shot. It allowed me to drive the 5 miles home. I have also use this to run a satellite sound system for a ceremony which works wonderfully as a wedding DJ who does not want to run 200 feet of an extension cord for a 15 minute ceremony. I've used it to fill up the air in my tires, as a light late at night when I needed something while on the road. I've used it to charge my phone when my later so kids were being used for other things. I can go on and on with how wonderful this thing is."

"Charges all my batteries (phones, tablets, laptops, AAA) with no problem! I've taken it camping with me a couple of times and the light comes in handy in the tent. I charge it with the Instapark Mercury 27 portable solar panels."

"Bought this unit for my son to use at the beach to power his boom box. Unit is still very new, but we are all amazed at how long the inverter holds up..."

"This product is a must have for anyone, camping , or travel."

"Pump up my cars' tires, mower tires. can jump a battery. AND its gonna be a BIG plus in a power outage. LOVE this thing. I charge it in my truck using an inverter (had one sitting around) and supplied ac cord."

"I feel so much better that I have this in my house I actually have peace of mind at night. A small generator for emergency is always a good thing to have. Works great I have used this and works flawlessly to boost my car, power some lights, charge 2 phones, and power some outdoor speaker for 6 hours and still have juice to party some more."

"Great emergency item or for car camping, has so many uses and worth the money."

"Great Product,I have had this Duracell Powerpack pro for 8 months now, and have been using for 10 hours a day 5 days a week to run a 7in portable TV. I charge it up at night, and after using it for 10hrs the next day, it still has 3/4 charge left. Couldn't ask for a better product."

"Working out well as a portable power pack for low wattage AC portable florescent lights. Have used the older version of this product. Service life has been bound by the life of the battery inside and have replaced the rechargeable scouter battery in older versions of this product, as necessary. Only time will tell if all the features of this product will continue to have a good service life like the earlier versions."
