Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What type of batteries are in an Explorer 1000?

A: Explorer 1000 contains a battery pack which consists of an optimised array of high quality cylindrical 18650 lithium-ion battery cells with high energy density.

Q: How do I know if my Explorer 1000 is charged?

A: To check the charge level of the Explorer 1000, refer to the LCD Battery Display. The display will also show you input wattage and output wattage if the explorer is in use.

Q: How do I know if my device will work with the Explorer 1000?

A: You will need to check the amount of power your device requires. Most devices have a power sticker, alternatively an online search or examining the user guide for your device should indicate whether the device is less than or equal to 1000W.
