Nice power supply

It's very easy using and changing it I got it for my service truck for running a computer and changing other things. Works very well.

Thank you. We appreciate your review - and your purchase!

Lion Energy expansion Pack XP recert

Being a true LiPo4 battery and twice the capacity of the primary ME unit, this is a no brainer if you're looking for a Solar Generator. When asked what my recommendations would be for buying a solar generator, I always say : Make sure you're buying a LiPo4 battery (NOT an NMC) and that the primary unit is expandable. The primary unit should be 2000wats (This unit is 1000w), it should be rechargeable by several methods and be easily portable. Although this unit is only 1Kw, it allows for expansion batteries that are easily plugged into the ME, and are they are relatively affordable. Only downside I can see (for MY needs) is that this uses a 24volt solar system. I have a bunch of 12volt panels, but I suppose I could just put two in series? The other units I have use MP4 connectors, but Lion uses a 30a Anderson connector, so I had to buy an adapter from MP4 to Anderson, aout 12 bucks. The capacity of these units are great, they are easily transportable and should last a very l o n g time. I just wish that the XP could be AC charged independently, but that entail the addition of a charge controller which would me a higher cost, so,...overall a very nicely constructed unit that I expect years of service from. I call Lion prior to purchase. I asked whether if you depleted the ME, you could just plug in the XP and was told yes. Perfect for my needs.

Lion ME & XP

I needed a unit I could take around the property for portable power, electric jack hammer, radio, other corded tools etc. so I wouldn't need to string 100' extension cords.This fits the bill just fine. I made a cart for it which makes moving it easier. The only things that could be improved: where the 120v AC plug rests, it doesn't sit neatly in its designated place so the back of the unit is flush. That is nitpicky, I know, but, to be objective. Another "negative" is Lion's use of 24volt solar panels. This may be a negative for only me, because I have a bunch of 12 volt panels. I'll just put two of them in series. Not really a negative, but buyer be aware: Lion uses the 30a Anderson plug for their solar charging input. I believe the general public - ones not also buying Lion's 24 volt solar panels, would be better served with an MC4 input. MC4 connectors are on the majority of panels in the market. If you plan to use panels other than Lion's, you'll need to make an adapter plug. Also pretty nitpicky, huh? Otherwise, I could find no negatives.
I also bought two of the XPs. There is a similar cord issue with them also-difficult to wind the cord into their provided space in the back (again nitpicky), but otherwise; well packaged, received (I am in Utah) within 3 days of ordering, and they look perfect. Have only, so far, used to power a portable XM radio on the property and used a 1000w heater in the shop, just to test it out. Worked well, barely lowered the state of charge after 30 minutes of use.
Many of these equally sized units by other manufacturers are not LiPo4 powered and have significantly less charge cycles that the ME. Stay away from the Lithium-Ion (polymer) and the NMC batteries. LiPo4 have twice the charge/discharge (life expectancy) cycles. Double what your expected needs are and you should be happy. Also if you're looking to purchase a unit like this, look for one that is upgradeable; you can buy extra batteries, like the XP.One final note, the XP can be plugged into the ME when the ME goes dry, and the ME can continue to be used. I just wish the XP could be charged independently, but that would require a charge controller in the XP unit, and raise costs. Good unit and Lion's tech support responds quickly with the right answers..

Great generation

I initially bought one for my refrigerator in the garage and it worked great during a outage that we had that I bout another one and connected all my wifi and security cameras to it. It's presently on right now due to another outage. So far no issues with them and I'm totally satisfied.

What are the Safari ME and XP?

The Safari ME and XP are the latest in Lithium battery technology for portable power needs. They replace traditional noisy gas generators with the safest Lithium batteries on the market today. They are light weight for the amount of power and stored energy they have. Think of it as a safe, silent, renewable generator and extra energy storage without the need for gas, pollution or all that weight.

What does the Safari ME power?

You can use it to power a wide variety of devices like cell phones, laptops, tablets refrigerators, freezers, TVs, lights, hot plates or grills, power tools, and the list goes on. Virtually any device you can plug into a standard wall outlet, the Safari ME can power it. And with the optional ME-XP expansion battery, you can power all that for longer.

How can you figure out how long the Safari ME and XP will power specific devices?

The ME has a continuous 2,000W of power output (watts of power output) and over 900Wh (922 watt hours) of stored energy. The ME-XP adds nearly another 2,050Wh more when connected to the ME. That means you can power devices that require up to 2000W of power for various periods of time. To calculate how long the ME can power a device, use this formula: Wh / W = Estimated Run Time. For example, if the device requires 50W of power and the ME has 922Wh then the device can be powered for approximately 18.5 hours (922 / 50 = 18.44) If you use that same device but now with the XP connected to the ME, you'll have 2,970Wh to use in this formula (2,970 / 50 = 59.4).

How long can the Safari ME and XP hold a charge?

They will maintain their charge for up to a year (ME) or two (ME-XP) without having to charge them. This is known as shelf life or storage life. They will lose about 2-3% charge on average each month (more in the first month and less in subsequent months), assuming the unit is fully charge to begin with. However, we recommend using the ME and XP frequently, in the house, outside, on adventures and for emergencies.

Can the Safari ME and XP power an A/C unit?

The Safari ME outputs 2,000W and can power some AC units depending upon the brand and the watts each AC unit requires. Like with most devices, the power consumption varies from brand to brand and model to model. So you'll need to determine if the AC unit is less than 2,000W.Check out our videos tab for a detailed review on the ME. Remember, if you connect the XP to the ME then you get an extra 2,048Wh of stored energy to power things longer.

How can I connect the Safari ME and XP to my house?

You would need a home integration kit, which is generally found at home improvement/electrical supply/hardware stores.

Can the Safari ME and XP be used to store solar power or solar energy?
The Safari ME and XP are a great energy storage combo unit for solar power from solar panels. Together they can store 2,970Wh (watt hrs) of energy.

Why should I buy the Safari ME and XP?

The Safari ME and XP are made from the highest quality and longest lasting battery technology – Lithium Iron Phosphate. The Safari ME and XP are safe, silent and renewable, unlike gas-powered generators. The ME gives your power anywhere, anytime. The ME-XP gives you more time to power those devices.

Will the Safari ME and XP work with power tools?

Yes, most power tools will work just fine with the ME and XP. Some require more energy at startup (a surge) and may need to have a "soft start" component added to the ME that can be found at home improvement, electric supply, or hardware stores.
