Geneverse Vs Jackery

These days, reliable power isn’t as sure a thing as it used to be. Power outages can happen all over the world, and they seem to happen more often than ever. That’s why many people want to find ways to generate their own power to be less reliant on existing electricity methods.

Geneverse and Jackery are two companies that are leading names in sustainable power that you can generate yourself. In the past, we have covered how vital off-the-grid power can be, and these products can both be great choices for this purpose.

But which is the best brand of the two for you and your power needs?

We will be looking at some of the benefits and drawbacks of each of these companies to help you decide which one will be right for you.

Geneverse Vs Jackery – About The Brands


This company was founded in 2019 after founder Anson Liang had experienced one too many power outages in California. He worked hard to create some alternative backup power sources of his own so that his family would not have to suffer during outages.

This led to the creation of Geneverse, a brand that endeavors to create quality backup power sources so that no one will have to go through the experience of unexpected power cuts.

These days, they are a leading brand in the alternative power market, known for their great products that come in a wide range to suit different needs.


Jackery has been around for a bit longer than Geneverse, and they have cultivated quite a reputation in that time. The company was founded in 2012 by a team of engineers in California, and since then they have become a leader in power storage and generation devices.

Both of these companies have become well-known in this tech niche, but now we will take a closer look at some of their most well-known products to compare them.

Geneverse vs Jackery: Solar Generator Series Overview

Generverse and Jackery both provide quality power storage devices that both perform similar functions. Both can be charged either by an outlet or separately purchased solar panels and can then be used to charge smaller devices.

Both have their strengths and weaknesses, but we will go over those in greater details throughout the comparison.

HomePower Pro TWO Battery vs Explorer 2000 Pro Battery

In this overview, we are comparing the Geneverese HomePower Pro TWO and the Jackery Explorer 2000 Pro Battery. While both offer the same function, they differ in a few key aspects.

Carrying Bag

The panels come with a  durable, convenient carry bag that makes transporting and storing the panels so much easier.

Efficiency (EFF): ≥24.3%

The efficiency of the SolarSaga panels is very slightly less than Geneverse featured. Jackery’s model gives us ≥24.3% as opposed to the ≥23.4% of Geneverse. Overall, this difference is fairly negligible and won’t make a huge difference.

IP67 Waterproof Rating

The Jackery SolarSaga features the same IP67 waterproof rating that Geneverse’s panels did, meaning it will be similarly water resistant.

Design And Build

The Jackery panels have a convenient foldable design which means they won’t take up as much space when folded. When folded, the panel has dimensions of 21.25 X 24.21 X 1.57 inches. Unfolded, this changes to 21.25 X 91 X 0.98 inches.

It also weighs around 18 lbs. Overall, the size and weight of the panels is almost identical. The Geneverse panels do seem to be slightly sturdier, but overall they are very comparable.

Ease Of Use

Once again, the Jackery panels have been designed to be easy to unfold, set up and plug in.

Reliability And Performance

There is only one review for this product on the product page, although the review was really positive. If we look at the 100W model which is very similar in build, there is an impressive 4.8 out of 5 stars rating from 77 reviews, showing this line seems to be really dependable.

The aftermath of a disaster poses a prolonged challenge, with the average duration of power outages doubling in recent years. As we witness a yearly rise in weather-related disruptions, having access to a reliable power source transitions from a luxury to an essential element of emergency planning. Portable power stations, serving as a lifeline, enable over 75% of emergency responders to maintain critical communication and lighting, significantly mitigating the vulnerability of communities affected by disasters.
