    Which type of portable power station to buy?

    Which portable power stations can generate more electricity output, are less harmful and are made at cheaper cost, solar or gas or battery? https://www.bestpowerstation.com/typ...wer-generator/ Any other suggestions?

    Well, it depends on purpose.
    So the question is what are you going to charge?
    Unfortunately, from my experience commercial ones often don't last. These things don't do well with full discharge which happens, at least while I'm in wild. So a more reliable option, I believe, is to make your own power station, as it's not that tricky: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=095TSa2nBLU
    The advantage of building your own is that you can choose how much capacity you need, number and type of outlets, inverter output type (square, modified sine or sine wave) and wattage. Also over time, if part of the unit fails, much easier to fix/replace, than if you had an all in one and a circuit burns out.
    ...as you can understand from my words, I prefer battery ones.
    Though if portable generators are an option, hard to beat a Honda EU2200i (specs). I have a similar suitcase Honda gen which I took camping, to charge phones, ipads etc. + to run any devices in a camper. Mine ran for about 4 -5 hours on a tank of petrol, was exceptionally quiet and very useful.
