Jackery Explorer 160 | Lithium-Powered Portable Power Station

Jackery Explorer 160 | Lithium-Powered Portable Power Station

Have you ever wished that you could go on a backpacking trip and bring your phone, drone, camera, and any other electronics- but wondered how you could easily charge them all?? Well, with the Jackery Explorer 160 now you can! We are so excited about this new piece of technology. Not only is it small enough to bring along with you, but its also lightweight- weighing just under 4 lbs. Hook it to your backpack with a carabiner and off you go. It’s also great to take to on a camping/fishing/hunting trip. The options are endless.

For all technical information scroll down

The Explorer 160 is the smallest of all portable power stations that Jackery has to offer. As I stated earlier, the Explorer weighs in just under 4 lbs at 3.84 lbs. The 160 power supply offers a battery capacity of 167 Wh 46,400 mAh and comes equipped with:

• One USB-C port (5V 3A)

• Two USB-A ports (5V 2.4A)

• One DC 6mm port (12V / 7A)

• One AC inverter (110V 50Hz 100W 150W max)

There are 3 ways to charge the Explorer 160- a wall socket(receptacle), 12v car socket, or solar panel. A full charge takes 5 hours by car or wall receptacle, and 8-10 hours by solar depending on weather.

Another great feature on the 160 is the built-in LED flashlight on its side with SOS mode.

The Explorer also has a LCD screen with charge/discharge and battery life status along with a switch with indicator light for on/off output port charging.

Backed with a 24 month warranty and 24/7 Customer service also.

The Explorer 160 is definitely worth looking into. Jackery brand portable power stations are very built and will last. They were even chosen to partner with Honda to make Honda Officially Licensed lithium-powered portable power chargers. I can’t see why this portable power station wouldn’t work for you on your next trip. Check them out!

MOMENT LENSES | iPhone Photography

So while I love my Nikon camera and use it to take pictures of my family, it’s not easily accessible nor is it easy to carry around. We love to go on hikes and by the time we have two kids strapped to us, accessories for the hike, and Luna on a leash our hands, backs, backpacks are full. Thats why I love taking pictures with my iPhone. The quality is great. I always have it close by, and its easy to transport. I bought my first fisheye lens iPhone accessory off Amazon and was not impressed with the quality, but I loved the idea of taking my iPhone pictures to the next level.

I don’t remember how I stumbled across Moment, but i’m sure it was on IG. When I saw the quality of their lens I knew I had to try it. The first lens I ordered was their super fish lens and wow, it did not disappoint.

Since then I have added a few more lenses to my collection and wanted to show you a comparison of the different Moment lenses. They are available for phones other than iPhones also. It’s a great way to step up your picture game! With all Moment lenses you have to attach it to their specific phone case!

Here is Moments Macro Lens. When I first ordered this lens I questioned myself if I would actually use it enough, considering you have to get VERY close to your subject. But Zach & I have had SO much fun with this lens! It really lets you see things you wouldn’t see unless you look REALLY close. If you get this lens, I recommend taking a close-up picture of your eye! Seeing the iris of your eye up close is stunning!

Next I’m going to show you the difference in my normal iPhone X with no lens, then with Moment’s Wide Angle, & Moment’s Superfish lens.

I stood in the exact same spot with my phone and Zach changed out the lenses so I didn’t have to change the position of my phone. From left to right iPhone X no lens, Wide Lens, Superfish Lens. It’s really crazy how adding different lenses transforms your pictures!

The Superfish lens gives you the look of a GoPro without carrying an extra camera around. It also works on videos (see most of our videos on our YouTube channel to experience the visual quality). Not every picture or video is needed/wanted in Superfish because of its ability to show a “panoramic” view, hence why we also acquired the Wide lens. Its a great, quality lens that helps to not show ALL of the surroundings while allowing you to be far from your subject.

As you can see, having these lenses in your repertoire is quite useful. We hate when we leave home without them!
