When staying in the wild for a long time, he can cook, plug in speakers, and even charge office computers.
It can be seen that the market potential of portable energy storage equipment in China and even the world is huge. Interestingly, the iiMedia Research report also shows that China’s mobile energy storage product shipments account for more than 90% of global shipments. The reporter learned that Chinese brands such as Jackery Electric Xiaoer, Boludi, Zhenghao EcoFlow, etc., rank high in the sales rankings of Amazon’s outdoor power supply category and are the leaders in the portable energy storage market. In the future, the growing demand for portable energy storage in various countries may continue to stimulate the development of related industries in China.
