The Ugreen Portable Power Station PowerRoam 2200 is a high-capacity, portable power station designed for anyone looking for an off-grid power solution. It also perfectly fits the needs of photographers and videographers working on location who need access to mains power. With a capacity of 2048 Wattshours and the capability to run appliances up to 2200W, it offers more than enough power to lighting, computers, audio and cameras for a small to medium-sized shoot.
Although I’ve looked at quite a few of these power stations, this one has stood out for several reasons, initially for the mobility features. Unlike many of its competitors in the market, it comes with an optional set of wheels and a trolley, making it easier to transport despite its significant size and weight (25.5kg). The UK version, which I’m looking at, features an array of 16 ports, including four AC outlets, enabling it to power a variety of devices simultaneously. This makes it well-suited to power multiple pieces of equipment, such as cameras, lights, and laptops.
Another feature that is definitely of interest is that the PowerRoam 2200 has an expandability option and allows for the addition of further expansion batteries, scaling up to a massive 12KW, which is more than enough to power the average house for the day.
The inclusion of an iOS or Android app for monitoring and controlling the power station also adds another level of access and ease of use. It means that in busy environments, socket arrays can be switched on and off, and you can monitor the status of the battery remotely, although it connects through BlueTooth, so you still need to be within distance.
