Choosing a Solution

I’ve narrowed down my choices to either the Goal Zero 400 Lithium or the 1000 Lithium.  Lithium is a better choice than AGM as the entire charge is usable without damaging the battery.  And the smallest lithium power stations are the 400 and 1000.  The 1400 and 3000 are nice but they are expensive and heavy.  I’m not made out of money and I’m not lugging 100lbs around.

The 400 costs $600 and the 1000 costs $1000.  The 1000 is on the outer limit of what I’d like to carry (40lbs) and it costs $400 more.  But it’s 1000 watt hours vs 400.  I’m not planning on running a ridge or an AC with this, but ideally I’d like to be able to run a fan all night and still have juice to charge my phones.

The 400 is the sweet spot in size and portability.  I’m just not sure 400 watt hours is enough.

And I’m afraid if I buy the 400, I’ll be kicking myself for not buying the 1000 as I run out of juice.

Sigh.
