The DJI Power 1000 excels in its connectivity options, offering a wide range of ports to accommodate various devices and charging needs. The power station includes:

  • 2 x 140W USB-C output ports (PD 3.1 compatible)
  • 2 x 24W USB-A ports
  • 2 x AC output ports
  • 1 x SDC port
  • 1 x SDC Lite port
  • 1 x AC input port

The inclusion of dual 140W USB-C ports is particularly noteworthy, as it surpasses the more common 100W offerings found in many competing products. This higher output is especially beneficial for charging larger devices like laptops.

The AC output ports provide 2400W maximum output power, enabling the use of high-power devices and appliances. The specialized SDC and SDC Lite ports are designed to fast-charge compatible DJI drones, which is a unique feature that sets this power station apart for drone enthusiasts and professionals. On the other hand, a wasted feature for those who don’t have drones.

For input, the DJI Power 1000 supports multiple charging options, including grid power, solar power, and car power. The ability to connect up to six solar panels provides excellent flexibility for off-grid use and environmentally conscious users. The downside is that you have to purchase accessories that allow for this feature, separately.


The DJI Power 1000 can power over 99% of common household appliances. Its 1024Wh capacity as well as 2400W maximum output power provide ample energy for everyday use and more demanding applications.
