DJI Power 1000 & Power 500 portable power stations now available in Aus

    DJI, the leading civilian drone manufacturer has introduced the Power 1000 & Power 500, portable power stations using LFP cells to the Australian market.

    Both power stations can be fully charged in just 70 minutes (if you’re rushed charged to 80% in 50 minutes), fast charge DJI drone batteries and meet the power demands of common household appliances as well as be used away from home such as on camping trips.

    Christina Zhang, Senior Director of Corporate Strategy at DJI commented:

    “Over the past several years we’ve seen travellers and content creators around the world increasingly turn to DJI drones and handheld cameras, to capture and share their experiences.  These users have a demand for fast charging, worry-free, sustainable power consumption and today we’re glad we can address this with the new DJI portable power stations.”

    “Whether consumer, professional, enterprise or agricultural, DJI has a long history in battery research and development. Batteries are paramount to the user experience with battery life and charging efficiency, central to user needs. We hope that the DJI Power series can further improve the outdoor experience by eliminating power consumption anxiety and, in the home, by being on hand as a home backup to tackle power outage issues.”

    The DJI Power 1000 has a battery capacity of 1024 Wh and weighs 13kg with the smaller, compact DJI Power 500 at 512 Wh and weighs 7.3kg; they can provide maximum power outputs of 2200W and 1000W respectively.

    Using just three drone batteries and a DJI Power portable power station, creators can enjoy a full day of flight and content capture, without power concerns getting in the way of creativity.

    Power Socket, Solar or Car; the Choice is Yours

    When it comes to recharging the portable power stations, users can choose the best method that works for them. Whether that’s out on the road or at home, the most appropriate recharging method can be selected from:

    Power 1000 Power 500
    Power Socket Supports both 1200W Fast Recharge Mode and 600W Standard Recharge Mode. Supports both 540W Fast Recharge Mode and 270W Standard Recharge Mode.
    Solar Connect to solar panels through the DJI Power Solar Panel Adapter Module (MPPT) or the DJI Power Car Power Outlet to SDC Power Cable.  An intelligent algorithm supports real-time monitoring of the voltage generated and allows the solar panels to recharge the Power 1000/500 in an optimised and efficient way.
    Car With the DJI Power Car Power Outlet to SDC Power Cable (12V/24V), fully recharge the DJI Power 1000/500.
    USB-C Two 140W USB-C output ports, with a total power output of up to 280W. Two 100W USB-C two-way ports for a total input power of 200W, can charge the Power 500 in approximately three hours.


    Safety as Standard

    From the body structure and cell chemistry to the system software, safety comes first at all times.

    The DJI Power 1000/500 have passed 26 product test certifications from the Swiss third-party testing authority, SGS.

    Furthermore, the Intelligent Battery Management System is built up with LFP cells with up to 3,000 cycles, a 10-year lifespan, temperature sensors, fuses and flame-retardant, high-strength material, providing complete peace of mind.

    When purchased from the DJI Store, the portable power stations will have a three-year warranty, which can be extended by an additional two years after registration.

    Power Outage, no Problem

    If an electrical device is connected to a powered-on DJI Power 1000/500 via the AC output port and both are receiving power, the DJI Power 1000/500 defaults to UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) mode.

    This means that in cases of sudden power outage, the connected device (or devices) will continue to receive power from the DJI Power 1000/500 within 0.02 seconds.

    Quiet and Functional

    During recharging, the Power 1000 is quieter than most household refrigerators at 23 dB. Even in environments with little noise, there is very minimal noise disturbance.

    Both devices support the fast charge protocol (Power 1000: PD 3.1, Power 500: PD 3.0), ensuring efficient power output and the Power 500’s dual 100W USB-C two-way ports can provide separate power supplies to two devices such as cameras, phones and laptops. For those looking for even more power, the Power 1000’s two 140W USB-C output ports can fast charge popular, powerful computers.

    Extensive Accessories

    With multiple ports, the Power 1000/500 are highly versatile to connect to different types of solar panels, power cables and adapters. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, with the Power 1000/500, you’ll always have access to power.
