    SUAOKI S270 150Wh Portable Power Station with AC Outlets



    Portable chargers, also known as power banks, are among the most useful types of chargers you can use. However, portable chargers have evolved, and they go beyond just being able to charge our smartphones. There are now portable chargers known as portable power stations, and they differ from the regular charger that you’re able to take anywhere because, along with USB ports, they also have AC outlets and DC ports.

    In this review, we’re taking a look at this SUAOKI 150Wh portable power station. The brand has gained quite a lot of traction these past few years, with their specialty being power stations rather than portable chargers. Although, they do have portable chargers that also double as car jump starters too.

    This portable power station that we’re reviewing is one of their most popular, so let’s what all the hype is about.

    Power Capacity:

    The power capacity of this Suaoki portable power station differs depending on what output you’re with it.

    review, suaoki, s270, 150wh, portable

    For example, if you’re using the USB charging ports, the power capacity that you’re able to get is 40,500mAh. While using the DC ports on this portable power station will result in a 13,500mAh capacity. The reason that the amount of power capacity you’re able to use changes depending on what output you’re using is because the conversion rate of the two options is different.

    The USB ports have a slower charging rate, and therefore the conversion rate is better, and there’s more power to use. On the other side, the DC ports use more power, and the conversion rate is less efficient.

    To know how to get these numbers, here’s the conversion for using the USB ports and getting the power capacity:

    150Wh x 1,000 = 150,000 / 3.7 = 40,540mAh

    With this much power capacity, if you’re solely using the USB ports to charge from, this portable power station can charge most smartphones to full power about ten times. If you’re charging tablets with USB ports, then the full power charges can be about three as tablets have a battery capacity of 5,000mAh.

    To get the capacity from the DC ports, you simply have to divide by 11.1Volts, because that’s what the DC ports are rated at.

    150Wh x 1,000 = 150,000 / 11.1 = 13,513mAh

    With this much power, you can use it to charge laptops to full power about two or three times.

    So, at its base, this charger does have a 40,000mAh power capacity. Charging smaller devices such as smartphones can make this portable power station last for days. The same can be said about charging laptops, and tablets, too, only if you’re charging them once and then switching back to charging smaller devices.

    Output Charging:

    There’s a total of three ways to use this Suaoki S270 150Wh portable power station, and they are the USB ports, the DC ports, and the AC outlets.

    USB Ports:

    So let’s go over the USB charging ports first. There are a total of four USB charging ports. Three of the ports share a 5V/2.1A charging speed. So that’s not an impressive charging rate, as it’s standard. However, the standard charging among the three ports is made up of the fourth port that uses Quick Charge to fast charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones such as Samsung, LG, and many others on the market.

    DC Ports:

    There are four DC ports, and they each share a 9-12V/10A/15A output and a 120W power output that is maxed out at 180W.

    So using DC ports on a portable power station, in general, is rather a a hit or miss situation. Most people don’t exactly own too many appliances that require a DC port, but at the same time, if you do find a use for it, they can be very helpful.

    There are two ways that you can use the DC ports. One is simply connecting a 5.5mm diameter DC cable directly into the DC port on the power station and using it that way. The other way to use the DC ports, and the more accessible way to use it, in our opinion, is to use the 12Volt socket attachment that the power station comes with.

    With this attachment, you’re able to plug-in devices, use a car type of a power cable, and power them that way. For example, with the car socket attachment, you can plug a car charger into it and get more usable charging ports. Yes, that’s a strange way to use it, but now you’ve got more ports to use!

    Another extremely helpful way to use the car adapter with the DC ports was using a tire air pump, which is shown in the image above.

    Two AC Outlets:

    Surprisingly, two AC outlets are used on this portable power station, and the “surprising” part is that most portable power stations have a single AC outlet.

    The only difference between the two outlets is that one is a 3 prong outlet, and the other is a 2 prong outlet. The power output for each of the two outlets is the same, sharing a 100W power output and a 150W peak power output. That said, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to use them both at the same time as they’re very close together.

    With this power output, you’re able to power small appliances such as small fans, maybe a mini-fridge. The AC outlets can also be super helpful for charging laptops, especially if you’ve still got a laptop that makes use of a charging brick. It’s also useful for using a PD charger for laptops too.

    Input Charging:

    There are a total of three ways to recharge this Suaoki power station, and that would be to use the AC adapter, the car adapter, or the solar charger adapter.

    So when it comes to recharging the power station, the most used and fastest option will be to use the AC adapter as the wall charger can recharge the power station at a 30W charging speed.

    If you’re using a 30W Solar charger with the solar charger adapter, you can also recharge the power station at 30W. That said, solar charging is not nearly as consistent as AC recharging as you’re going to need constant sunlight exposure on the panels.

    Car recharging using is a very helpful way to recharge the power station as you could be driving and have it recharging.

    Size and Weight:

    For a 40,500mAh power capacity power station with so many ports and ways to use it, this is a very compact one. Definitely on the portable side, but of course, you can’t expect the same portability as a regular power bank. This thing is still quite large and heavy, too.

    So the power station has a length of 7.2 inches, a width of 4.3 inches, and a height of 4.6 inches. The weight of it is 2.9 pounds.

    In terms of a portable power source with all the powering and charging options that we’ve discussed above? This product is very small, and its use of two handles only makes portability easier.

    Could you take this power station with you to the library or coffee shop and use it to charge your laptop without having to worry about being near an outlet? Yes, it would be great for that. For camping and hiking, this power source rocks, too.

    Functional Components:

    The USB and DC ports are on the long length side, while on the short ends, you’ll find the two AC outlets on one side, and the other side is where there’s an LED flashlight.

    At the top of the power station is the power button. The power button at the top controls the power for the USB ports and the DC ports, so once you have a device connected to either of the sides, you have to press the top power button. Also, the LED power capacity displays are colored blue, and you can press the power button to check how much power is left.

    When it comes to using the AC outlets, you have to press the AC outlet power button to be active. The flashlight also has its own power button, and there are two modes for the flashlight, with the first one being the “constant” mode and the other being an SOS mode.

    Structure and Material:

    The build quality of this portable power station is great, as it’s built like a tank. However, it’s not exactly rugged, even though that’s what it seems like and looks like, too. The power station can take light falls, bumps, such as placing it in your car and forgetting about it no matter how you drive.

    Dropping onto hard-flooring from a high height can prove to be bad, though, as it’s not shock resistant. The two handles provide a great way to take it anywhere and are large enough to hold the power station comfortably.


    If you go over the max power output of this Suaoki power station on the tech side, it will automatically turn off. Even when we used it for a long time, the power station didn’t heat up, and that’s likely because of its use of vents and a fan.


    With all of its features coupled together with its use of two AC outlets, four DC ports that can be made more useful with a 12Volt car adapter, four USB ports with one using Quick Charge, and top it all off, the power station has a flashlight. This all comes in a form factor that you can practically take anywhere, even though not as easily as a regular power bank, but its handles make portability with it a lot easier.

    The way that the reliability of the power station falls short is if the AC outlets don’t provide enough power for what you want to use it for.


    Suaoki’s portable power station has a great amount of charging and powering options. There are four ports to use, with one using Quick Charge. Although not as useful as directly used, the DC ports, the use of a 12Volt car adapter makes them more useful. Also, there are two AC outlets, a 2-prong and the other being a 3-prong.

    The power station is small in terms of being a portable power source, and that’s why it makes use of a handle that enables you to take it anywhere you want.

    The build of the power station is tough, and the internals doesn’t get hot with its use of a fan and vents.

    Most portable power sources will be reliable as they’re the swiss army knife of tech in terms of charging and powering. That rings true right here.

    What Are Suaoki Portable Solar Generators?

    If you’re new to the portable power industry, then it is important to note that there is a difference between solar generators and traditional portable power stations. One of the defining features of solar generators is that they are compatible with solar panels.

    Solar panels enable continuous use of the power station during daytime hours. Any excess electricity is sent and stored in the battery for later use.

    Suaoki sells a line of solar generators that have different capacities and come at different prices. Some small generators are lightweight and designed for charging laptops and phones, while the larger options are more powerful to run kitchen appliances and other power tools.

    The amount of electricity a solar panel can store varies based on the size of the battery. On the other hand, the amount of electronics a Suaoki power station can support depends on the output capacity of the inverter as well as other system options.

    The time period of the highest power generation efficiency is from 10:00 to 14:00.When it is cloudy or sunlight become weaker, the output of the panel may become unstable due to low power generation efficiency.

    We do not recommend that you charger in the car or near Windows for the reason that the glass will block the heat of the sun so conversion efficiency will get lower.

    When the sunlight is not enough and multiple output ports are used at the same time, the solar panel will automatically distribute the current and give priority to charging some of the devices.

    Although polyester canvas provides waterproof protection, we recommend minimizing contact with water to protect the internal electronic components of the product.

    Please note that the power generation will vary depending on the installation location, weather conditions, sunshine time, etc.
