    Enjoy the benefits of pure sine wave AC power during emergencies, while camping or at the beach, or wherever your adventures take you.

Capable of providing up to 120 watts of 120-volt pure sine wave AC power, 10 amps at 12-volts DC, and 6 amps of USB charging power, it includes four USB charging ports and two ground AC outlets, twice as many as most competing products. The DC section features both a pair of 5.5mm DC jacks and a standard cigarette lighter socket for automotive accessories. Best of all, you aren't forced to choose one from the other - use any or all of the outputs at the same time!

    Is the battery user replaceable?
    A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The battery for the PowerCache is not intended to be user replaceable.
    What solar panels are compatible with this unit?
    A shopper on May 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: MC4 to 8mm adapters were usually sold by a company that no longer sells them unless you have their solar panels. I'm using a chinese MC4 to 5.5MM adapter, and a 5.5mm female to 7.9mm male adapter.
    I live in the upper midwest and wonder if this can stay in a card during the winter months. So down to zero degrees?
    Jim E on Jan 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Could not really answer question cause Monoprice will not allow outside links. You would be better off with a lithium battery based solution and Monoprice should step up its game and have one. Search Suaoki 220Wh for Amazon link.
    Would this battery pack be able to power a Behringer Xenyx802 mixer? If so for how long would it be able to power this device?
    A shopper on May 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It will indeed power the Xenyx802 audio mixer. The mixer is rated to draw 20 watts at 120 Volts, so the PowerCache would be able to run it for a good long time, on the order of eight to 10 hours.
    HI, What type of DC connector is the AC Adapter Input Power. (so for instance 8mm, 6mm, 5.5mm?) It does not seem to be listed on the Technical specifications. Thanks!
    A shopper on Jan 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It is definitely 8 mm. O.D. I wanted the size to see how to connect a solar panel to my generator.
    can it be recharged by a car?
    A shopper on Aug 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes but you need to buy a cable. I use the Goal Zero 8mm to 12V Adapter Cable. Monoprice may have one as well.
    do you carry the solar panel that adapts to this?
    A shopper on Oct 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: At this time we do not currently offer a solar panel solution for the PowerCache. But it is something that I am actively working on and will hopefully have a solution soon.
    Has anybody found a solar panel which matches the input requirements of this (8mm, 3A@12VDC)?
    A shopper on Oct 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Not yet and it is not for lack of looking. Not simple.
    Necesito generador también solar para equipo de acnea cuál es el más conveniente?
    A shopper on Oct 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: From my translation, you are looking to run some equipment using this device. What I found is I could run anything without a heating element, that usually overloaded it. Motors also cut down the run time significantly.
    What is the size of the charging (input) port? Is it a 8mm barrel?
    New User U on Jul 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Specs say 8mm
    Can i power a 20" industrial floor fan with this?
    A shopper on Jul 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You would want to make sure that the fan suports 120V and does not exceed 120W.
    how many amps is the cigarette socket?
    A shopper on Jun 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The cigarette lighter socket will be 12 VDC, 10A.

    Can i collect power using solar and use power with AC at the same time?
    A shopper on Jun 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes
    I already have a 28 watt portable solar panel with USB outputs. What would be needed to use that panel to charge this unit? Is 28 watts enough to be effective?
    A shopper on Jun 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Specs say 3A maximum input current. If your 28w solar panel is 12vdc [most common] then it puts out 28/12=2.4amps. But if your solar USB output is 5v then 28/5= 5.6 amps... too much
    can i use it to power my electric drill and other tools?
    A shopper on Apr 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, but probably not for very long. It is basically a battery. I have had mine for a month and have used it to power my modem and router for my wifi, for an LED light, and for a box fan and the blower for my fireplace. It powers my fireplace blower for 2 hours.
    Is there an online version of the manual?
    A shopper on Nov 15, 2017
    Charging Input Ports (x2) + Maximum Input Power (3A) = 6A from Solar Panels ??
    A shopper on Oct 31, 2017
    Has anybody found a specific solar panel (on amazon, until MonoPrice gets its act together) which matches the input requirements of this (8mm, 3A@12VDC)?
    New User U on Oct 26, 2017
    Can this handle my commercial size 36V, 240W solar panel directly, or does it need a controller to drop the voltage to 12V?
    A shopper on Oct 24, 2017
    What size solar panel does this need?

    Solar power without solar panel...
    Looks like a nice little power geenrator although 125 watts of pure sine wave AC is not much…. My main gripe is that you would have to purchase a solar panel separately shouldn't at least 1 basic solar panel come with it out of the box? Or call it a solar panel compatible generator for the sake of transparency and honesty.

    CONS: No solar panel included...
    June 28, 2016
    3/5
    Still could be a nice good big battery, but the name is misleading ... it doesn't have any generator or anything solar-powered about it.

    PROS: Nice big battery with AC inverter

    CONS: Misleadingly named not solar or a generator at all.
    July 15, 2016
    Solid unit. Better than Yeti Goal Zero.
    This thing is heavy and tough. I took it on a 3 day camping trip along with a solar panel I bought elsewhere. I never had to charge it though. Still had 60% charge after charging 3 cell phones for the 3 days as well as a few other devices.

    For anyone interested, it works well with an Instapark Mercury27 solar panel and a Goal Zero 12v charge cable.

    Solar Panel Generator
    Looks like it will work well for what I need.
    Not sure why its labelled solar panel generator when it doesnt come with any solar panels.
    Think the description should have been more clear.
    When I called customer support, they dont even carry the panels yet.




    PROS: Nice size. Plenty of charging ports

    CONS: No solar panel avail.

    Super Product
    I bought this over a month ago for emergency power when our electricity goes out. It works great. It powers the blower on my fireplace for several hours on a charge if it's cold out and very effectively powers LED lights and a box fan if it's hot. I also bought an Aleko 25 watt solar panel from Wal-Mart and have used it to charge the generator. Yesterday, we actually lost power for 4 hours and I used the generator to power my modem and router so I had internet. It was a bad, but quick-moving thunderstorm, and after the sky had cleared up I put out the solar panel and so when I got done the generator was all charged up from the sun! I'm actually going to uy a second one.

    Works well with Goal Zero MC4 to 8mm adapter
    I was able to use a 60watt solar panel along with a goal zero MC4 to 8mm adapter to charge this unit. It takes anywhere to 4-6 hours to charge given enough sunlight.
    April 27, 2017
    Well-Designed and Useful
    I bought this unit solely for one purpose: to be an emergency supply of power for my laptop in the event of a power outage. I turned on my laptop today at 7am and plugged it into the unit. Once the unit was down to 20% I unplugged the laptop - 11 hours later. That was about 3-5 hours more than I anticipated. It's nice to know I can still put in a full work day even if the power goes out, without having to start up a gas-powered generator. I also like the look of the unit and its practical design.

    Excellent, convenient and useful item
    This is basically a portable battery backup. But it also has an option for solar charging and there are more plugs (and more conveniently located) than on a traditional UPS. I bought one for myself and for my mother. She is not very technical, but wanted something to keep her electric blanket and small light running during power outages. The USB charging ports also allow her to keep phone charged, etc. The layout and design is easy enough for her to understand and use effectively. I really like this unit as well.

    Best product ever
    This exceeded expectations. It does it all and is perfectly portable, easy to carry, stands upright so it doesn't take up a lot of room. We don't take it out for extended hours so I can't speak to the battery length, we use it on our boat to power Christmas lights and an amp for playing music for a couple of hours. No problems. No buzzing. amp when plugged into this product. Other generators cause buzzing in the amp. Easy and quick shipping. Good vendor.

    Ok for basic needs
    This is fine if you need to power a lamp during a power outage or charge a phone in the middle of a field. I thought I would use it to light up our trade show display setup, and it doesn't quite last that long. I used six low-powered, energy efficient LED light bulbs (60w comparable, 9w actual, 750 lumen brightness), and it powered them for just under four hours, slightly shy of the five hours I would need it.

    PROS: Very portable
    Easy to use
    Great options/features

    CONS: Length of power provided not as long as I need it
    No solar panel capability
