With a 1,000 Wh battery and ten outlets, the Tera 1000 can power multiple appliances and devices at once.

The Tera 1000 can be fully recharged in just 2 hours. If you don’t have this time, rest assured that your power station will recharge to 80% of its full capacity in just one hour.The 70mai Tera 1000 power station is portable, convenient and quite lightweight for its battery capacity. While 27.5 pounds may seem like a lot, it is one of the lightest power stations in the 1000Wh range, and the ergonomic silicone handle provides a comfortable, firm grip for easy handling.Alternatively, you can use the 70mai app to connect to Tera remotely. Use this app to turn your portable power station on and off, manage various settings, check its battery status, and more.
Design and build
The 70mai Tera 1000 has a somewhat retro look, but the design is very well thought out to ensure comfort and safety when handling it. The first thing that catches your eye is the large orange handle on top.It is made of durable silicone and is designed to fit all hand types and sizes. Anyone can move this power plant with a little effort.
The Tera 1000 has a double-layer plastic casing on the outside and a galvanized steel structure on the inside. This means that this power station is well protected from accidental drops or drops of your RV while traveling. You also won’t have to worry about overheating as there is a cooling fan on the right side of the unit that will keep your power station cool. After all, the Tera was designed to be an essential device for outdoor adventures.In addition, it has large rectangular rubber stands on the bottom, so you can safely place it on any surface without slipping.
The front panel of the 70mai Tera 1000 houses all the output connectors and ports. There are a total of ten outlets that provide users with various connection options. All of them are controlled using a button. The AC system consists of three outlets that support 1200 watts of continuous power and 2400 watts of surge power. In the US market, the AC outlets accept three-prong plugs, while in the European market there are two outlets with two-prong plugs (we’re using the European version for this review). The sockets are located at a large distance from each other, which allows you to simultaneously use devices with different plug sizes. This is probably why if you use two-prong plugs, there will only be room for two of them.
The low voltage section consists of seven ports, including one USB-A port and one USB-A QC port (to power legacy devices), one 18W Type-C port (powers small devices such as smartphones), one Type-C port With a power of 60 W. (for charging laptops or tools), two 13.6V DC ports and one car cigarette lighter charging port. To the right of the low voltage section you will find a 200W Anderson port that allows this device to connect to a solar panel.
A bright LCD display is also located on the front of the Tera 1000, next to the main power button. The small LCD screen displays battery capacity in the center, while functions such as pairing or fast charge status are represented by smaller icons at the top. Navigating the station menu is easy using the four buttons to the right of the screen. You can use them to find and activate various functions of this power plant.
There is a charging port on the back of the Tera 1000 where you need to plug in the AC charging cord. The sleek design of the built-in AC/DC adapter makes this cord very simple and lightweight. More importantly, this design allows the Tera 1000 to be fully charged in about 2 hours.
The 70mai Tera 1000 power station uses lithium-ion batteries designed for smart car electronics and e-bikes. According to the manufacturer, these lithium-ion batteries feature a best-in-class battery management system developed by Texas Instruments and are reliable and safe to use. This means that the Tera 1000 has no problems with overcharging, over-discharging, or overheating. But this also means that the 70mai power plant uses clean energy without carbon dioxide emissions.The built-in 2-in-1 inverter provides bi-directional power flow for efficient charging of devices. This also helps the power plant stay cool during operation. Heat dissipation is provided by a built-in aluminum radiator. The fan works not only quickly, but also silently. Your sleep will not be disturbed if you leave the device charging overnight. With that in mind, the Tera 1000 can power your CPAP machine all night long and beyond.
Smartphone connection and app
The most interesting feature for ordinary users is the ability to connect the 70mai Power Station to a smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). You can use this feature to control your Tera 1000 remotely via the app. The control range is about five meters. Even with BLE enabled, there is no noticeable drop in the device’s power consumption. The mobile application is available for both iOS and Android devices and has a simple and user-friendly menu. But to install it, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi must be enabled on your phone. However, you need to create a 70mai account to link their powerhouse to the app. Once this is done, simply launch the app on your phone and it will immediately display all the necessary information about the portable power station and its operation. On-screen buttons allow direct control of the AC and DC sections. You can also use the app to set AC fast charging mode, control the LED backlight, change the display brightness, and more.
70mai Tera 1000 in use
To turn on the 70mai Tera 1000 power station, you need to press and hold the power button for about 3 seconds. The screen lights up and immediately displays the battery percentage. What else is displayed on the screen depends on personal settings that each user can change. There are two smaller square screens on either side of the LCD. However they don’t display anything. Instead, they serve as low-power flashlights.Unfortunately, the light they emit is weak and very dim. This is enough so that you can see the control buttons in the dark, but nothing more. This portable power station can withstand over 1,000 charging cycles before the battery reaches 70% capacity. The Tera 1000 supports DC pass-through charging while charging. This means that the DC section will remain energized and you can use it to charge your devices while the Tera 1000 itself is charging. But this does not apply to the AC section. It will be completely turned off while you are charging the power station.When it comes to powering multiple appliances with the 10mai Tera 1000 AC outlets, 1200W is the hard limit. If you connect a device that draws more than, say, 1350 watts, the Tera 1000 will shut down after about 30 seconds. This means that this power station is easily capable of powering multiple devices at the same time as long as their power is within the 1200W range. The devices that this portable station can include are varied. For example, it can power the mini-fridge in your van for about 14 hours, depending on the refrigerator model. Or it can power a fan for about 20 hours and an energy-efficient TV for up to 8 hours. This means you never have to give up your comfortable life, even while outdoors.
Charging Tera 1000 using solar panels 70mai
Since the Tera 1000 was designed for outdoor living, it’s no surprise that 70mai also offers a portable monocrystalline solar panel used to charge the power station. In fact, unlike its competitors, the Tera 1000 boasts an Andersen-type connector with a maximum input power of 200W. This means that you can connect this power station to a wide range of solar panels. You are not limited to what 70mai produces. Setup takes no more than a few seconds. All you have to do is unfold it, place it in the best location to catch sunlight, and connect it to the power plant. The 70mai solar panel has a peak power of 110W, which is enough to efficiently charge smart devices. It even comes with two USB ports so you can connect your mobile devices directly to the panel.However, in ideal weather, it will take more than 6 hours to fully charge it from the solar panel. Luckily, Tera supports two 70mai solar panels or any other 200W solar panel alternative.
