Power stations come with all sorts of specs, with mini power stations with low capacities and power output and some with incredibly high capacities. The great part about the modern power station market is that there are units between the two, so you get a good balance of power and portability.

This review looks at this EBL 500W power station with a 519Wh capacity. This is a rather simple unit, but it’s still incredibly useful, featuring all the ports you could ask for and the power to match. Let’s take a closer look.

Battery Capacity

The 519Wh battery capacity of this EBL power station is decent, and you can run certain appliances for a long time. However, what matters most is the efficiency of the battery and how much of the initial capacity you can use. This is why I ran a DC and AC capacity test to know how much I could pull from the unit when using it.

I first ran a DC capacity test using a load tester powered from the DC cigarette lighter port; the load tester was able to pull 120W from the DC port, and I ran it until the unit went from 100% to 0%. After four hours, the power station was at 0%, and I had a 470Wh DC capacity, which gave me about 90% DC capacity efficiency. So the DC capacity from this EBL power station is excellent, and you can use most of its battery capacity.

Next, I used a watt meter with one of the AC outlets and powered a large crockpot on its high setting, pulling about 200W. I ran the crock pot until the power station was at 0%, and I ended up with a 460Wh capacity, which gives me about 88% AC capacity efficiency.

Overall, you can use most of the 519Wh capacity of this EBL power station, which means you’re getting what you’re paying for. However, in terms of how long the runtime for the power station depends entirely on the device you’re powering from it. For example, when I ran a DC capacity test with a 120W load, the power station lasted about 4 hours. So that can give you an idea of how long the power station would last with a 120W device.

If you want to power something like a 200W mini heater, that would likely last 2 hours. If you want this EBL power station to last for days or many hours, then lower wattage appliances below 100W would be my recommendation. Of course, charging devices such as tablets, laptops, and phones will make the battery last very long.

Output Power

Output options for using this power station are plenty, with the power stations having two DC5521 ports, a single DC cigarette lighter port, three USB-A Quick Charge ports, a single USB-C PD port, and there are two AC outlets.

I didn’t have any devices to test with the DC ports, but I did use the load tester to run the DC capacity test from the DC car socket and was able to pull 120W, while the DC ports are rated to output 112W, so they performed a little better than expected.

Charging Ports

The charging ports are pretty good, with three USB-A Quick Charge ports and a single 100W USB-C Power Delivery port. The USB-A ports are helpful for fast charging most Android phones, while the USB-C port can be useful for fast charging nearly any USB-C chargeable device.

For my testing, I fast-charged a Galaxy Note 9 from one of the USB-A ports while also charging my Lenovo laptop from the USB-C port at about 30W. The other test I did was charging my Note 9 from one of the USB-A ports and my Excitrus power bank from the USB-C port. It recharged at 60W so the USB-C port can output the 60W power delivery it claims it can do.

The wireless charging pad at the top could fast wirelessly charge my Note 9 at 10W.

AC Outlets

There are two three-prong AC outlets on this power station, and together they’re able to output 500W of Pure Sine Wave. The Surge output of the AC outlets is 1000W. To ensure the power station has a 500W limit, I powered my Lasko heater with a 750W power usage on its low setting. After going over 500W, this EBL power station automatically shuts down. So the unit does indeed have a 500W AC output limit.

For my general AC outlet testing, I powered two crockpots simultaneously, a small one and a large one, and in total, they had a 300W output. At the same time, I had my power bank and phone charging from the charging ports.


Overall, the AC outlets will be useful for powering devices within the 500W range. Blenders and coolers would work well with this power station.


You can recharge this EBL power station using the charging brick, a solar panel, or a car charger. The AC charger and the car charger are included in the box, and you get an MC4 to DC 7909 cable included in the box. Each recharging method for this power station has the same 105W recharging speed.

I did use the charging brick to test out AC recharging via the DC7909 input port, and the power station was able to recharge at about 105W. Also, this EBL power station does feature pass-through charging, so I could recharge the unit and use it simultaneously.

EBL also sent over their 100W solar panel that came with an Anderson to MC4 solar cable, and this EBL power station has an Anderson input port available for solar recharging. So I placed the panel outside with total sun exposure and got about a 70W to 75W solar recharging speed for the power station, which is very good for a 100W solar panel. At the end of my solar recharging test, I was able to get the power station from 0% to 18%; however, that’s because the position of the sun changed throughout the day, so make sure you place the panels in a good spot for maximum sun exposure all day.

Size and Design

The EBL power station has a length of 11 inches, a width of 7 inches, and a height of 8 inches. The unit weighs 15 pounds. So it’s not a large power station and fits into a middleweight. The handle at the top makes it easier to pick it up and move it around, and 15 pounds isn’t too heavy.

At the front is where you’re going to be spending most of your time when it comes to using this power station. At the front is where you’ll find the screen, power buttons, output ports, input ports, and the flashlight. You have to press the main red power button to turn on the power station, and then you can press each section button to turn on that section.

The screen shows the wattage output for each section individually and the wattage input and battery capacity. The flashlight only has one constant on setting. Then one other functional part of this power station is at the top: the handle and the wireless charging pad.

Build Quality

I have no complaints about this EBL 500W power station’s build quality. The unit has a great build and takes light bumps or small falls. However, the general rule applies here: not to drop this power station from a high height or expose it to water.

This EBL 500W portable power station is a solid unit with many output ports, excellent capacity efficiency, and a 500W output from its AC outlets. I can’t say any negatives for the unit other than that it uses regular Lithium-Ion batteries, not LiFePO4 batteries. Overall, this EBL power station is a pretty solid choice and does exactly what it’s supposed to do.
