FlashFish A301 Overview
The top of the unit has wireless charging to charge any compatible devices such as smartphones.
FlashFish A301 Battery Size and Charge Time
The FlashFish A301 uses a lithium battery rated at 292Wh (Watt Hours).
A Watt hour is a measurement for power over an hour to give an idea of how long a device will last while in use.
It is rated to fully charge in 3.5 hours when plugged into an AC outlet.
The unit can also be charged from a car battery or solar panels, which will take longer.
A car charger is also included to charge the unit from a vehicle’s cigarette lighter which would be handy while on the go.
FlashFish A301 AC Outlet Power
Pure sine wave inverters convert DC voltage to AC voltage that most closely matches power from a standard home AC wall outlet.
Before powering a device, it is usually best to check the Watts it requires to run with most devices labeled.
The FlashFish A301 will go into protection mode and automatically shut down if the Watts exceed the rated 320 Watts.
FlashFish A301 USB Charging Ports
Plugging a device into any of the ports the unit automatically detects it and starts charging.
The FlashFish A301 DC-Ports have a rated 168W of charging output. If the power draw goes higher, it will automatically go into protection mode and shut down.
The average smartphone uses roughly 10-20 Watts to charge, which will vary on battery size and charging technology.
This gives the DC-ports a lot of charging output for multiple devices.

The FLASHFISH A301 is a good power station with a big capacity battery and multiple charging ports.
This makes it a good unit in various situations, from camping to long trips or emergencies such as a power outage.
It worked very well while testing the unit, charging all the small devices I have, from smartphones to a smartwatch.
The AC output also worked well with the unit powering on a flat-screen TV and Android TV box.
The fan on the side intermittently comes on when the AC is being used to keep the unit from overheating.
At the back of the unit is a large LED light that has different modes, which can give out a lot of light if needed.
Many users of small power stations will use a small solar panel kit to help keep the unit charged, which I have not been able to test yet.
I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.
As always, be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
