Zendure’s SuperBase Pro IoT Powerhouse packs a punch

Get recharged and get started. It’s a mantra many can live by, especially if you’re on the road or camping in the wilderness. In these scenarios, it’s always good to have a reliable power supply, but unfortunately that’s not always possible. It can leave you in trouble when your phone or computer battery dies. Or, maybe you have power tools you need for a build, a coffee maker that needs power, or a number of additional complications where portable power is an absolute must? That’s where a portable powerhouse can come in handy, like Zendure’s lovely SuperBase Pro 2000, a high-capacity 2,096-watt-hour system with up to 14 output ports, including AC, DC, USB-C, and more.

The 14 ports aren’t vanity ports either, and they certainly pack a big punch. For example, the SuperBase Pro’s USB-C port offers 100 watts of power, enough to charge a 16-inch MacBook Pro at speeds comparable to a standard wall outlet. It eliminates the need to carry a travel adapter or proprietary power supply. This thing offers plenty of power to charge or power anything you need. It is also already equipped with an uninterruptible power supply (UPS)! We’ll dig into more of its fantastic features and how it can be priced soon, but for now just know that it’s on sale for $1,899 – normally $2,299 – exclusively for Digital Trends readers when using promo code Digital trends at the register.

One of the SuperBase Pro’s most promising features, and admittedly the most intriguing, is that it has built-in GPS and 4G IoT wireless connectivity. As long as you have a 4G signal, you can manage your power plant remotely, from almost anywhere. Using the smart app, you can receive status updates remotely, control and configure various aspects of the power station, and take advantage of many advanced features such as theft protection.

But the real test of a system like this, IoT-enabled or not, is how much power it can deliver to your devices or devices when you need it most. Before you do anything, you can charge the SuperBase Pro up to 80% of its full capacity, in just one hour, using either a traditional mains socket or solar power via the appropriate configuration. Solar panels of any size, up to 1800 watts, can be plugged into the system to recharge it. It takes about two hours to fully charge. This is very useful if you are off the grid and won’t be able to access conventional power anytime soon. Plus, there are seven ways to charge this thing, from AC and DC outlets to solar, generator, automatic, and EV-AC options.

The 2000 watt AC output, with up to 4000 watt surge, lets you power appliances you wouldn’t normally be able to use with something like this, including microwaves, washing machines, coffee makers and beyond. Indeed, although the output is rated at 2,000 watts, it can also safely power devices requiring up to 3,000 watts with an AmpUp feature. Heavy-duty appliances, power tools, you name it, they’ll plug in and run! It’s not just for outdoors, of course, it works great as a backup power supply and generator in your home, apartment or living space.

Zendure SuperBase Pro 2000 in an apartment as backup power.

The ultra-portable, suitcase-sized system sits on two industrial-grade wheels, with a telescoping aluminum handle that makes it easy to move around, especially thanks to its low center of gravity. If that sounds a little too fancy, just know that you’ll be able to roll this powerhouse right behind you, even over rough terrain, and it’s sturdy enough for you to stack or store other items on top. When you’re bugged or moving to a new campsite, it all comes in handy.

Normally $2,299, you can order one now from Zendure for $1,899 when you use code Digital trends at the register. That’s a savings of $400 on the power plant alone. You can also order 200 watt solar panels or a dust bag, both of which are compatible with the SuperBase Pro. There’s a lot to like about this system, including the IoT, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors, off the grid, or in places where you really need portable power. Don’t sleep on this deal if you’re interested in backup power support, for home or away.
