Geneverse HomePower Two Pro review: power to spare

Geneverse HomePower Two Pro Review

The Geneverse HomePower Two Pro is an impressive portable power station. While it may be more expensive than some of its rivals, this model boasts some useful features and an attractive design.

It charges quickly from a wall outlet, solar panel or vehicle socket with its built-in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controller. Furthermore, it’s safe to use indoors due to its long-lasting LiFePO4 cells.

If Jackery is the Subaru of the portable power station world – rugged, capable, and adventurous – Geneverse might be the Lexus – staid, reliable, and luxurious. As the name implies, the HomePower line is intended less for off-the-grid campers to refrigerate their microbrews, and more for families to make sure the milk doesn’t spoil the next time a storm rolls through.

Geneverse’s largest model, the HomePower Two Pro, goes big on capacity to promise “seven days of essential power.” While that number will obviously differ for every user, we found that it lives up to its sterling promises of capacity and output, and we’d be happy to have one stowed in the basement for the next big outage.

Is that a Mac?

The HomePower’s intended domestic habitat comes across in the clean, appliance-like design, which almost calls to mind the way Apple might design a power station. It has a minimalist, unobtrusive look that you probably wouldn’t mind leaving on your kitchen counter for a few days, unlike the loud outdoorsy aesthetic of Jackery, or the alien look of Anker.

A Geneverse HomePower Two Pro power station is set in front of a green wall.

The flat top makes an ideal spot to rest gadgets as you charge them, and the burly handles built into the side don’t flex or groan – this thing is built like an anvil. We’d appreciate wheels on our anvil, though. At 61 pounds, the HomePower Pro Two is right at the limit of what many people will be able to comfortably (or safely) lift solo.

With 2.4kWh of battery capacity, the HomePower Pro tops its class for a standalone power station this size. The competing Anker 767 (2.0kW) and Jackery Solar Generator 2000 (2.2kWh) can’t touch it, and while the EcoFlow Delta Pro bests it with 3.6kWh, it also weighs a backbreaking 99 pounds, so it’s not truly in the same class. An output of 2,200 watts is right on par with most units this size and means the Geneverse will essentially power almost anything you can plug into a 20A home outlet.

The HomePower Two Pro didn’t flinch at a 1,300-watt space heater running on high.

Despite the impressive power it packs, the HomePower Two Pro comes up light on ports. We can excuse three AC outlets instead of the usual four – that’s easy to solve with a power strip – but the lack of a 12V car socket is pretty inexcusable for a system this size. RVers will also be disappointed by the lack of a 30A outlet, which the Anker 767 and Bluetti AC200MAX both pack. Neither port is strictly necessary for a home backup scenario, but it’s disappointing to see them omitted when cheaper models include them.

The heat is on

All those numbers mean nothing if the Geneverse can’t deliver when the power is down, so to prove the Geneverse can deliver every bit of its claimed 2,200-watt output, we rounded up a rogue’s gallery of electricity hogs and got to work plugging them in. When the HomePower Two Pro didn’t flinch at a 1,300-watt space heater running on high, we threw caution to the wind and gave it a veritable torture test by also flicking on a 1,500-watt heat gun.

Somehow, despite reading 2,764 watts, nearly 600 more than it’s rated for, the Geneverse held strong for 30 seconds before eventually shutting itself down. This isn’t a load you’d want to continually expose the unit to, but it was impressive to see how long it would sweat it out above its limit.

To test its surge capacity, we tried connecting the HomePower Two to a 13-inch DeWalt planer, a small pancake air compressor, and a 12-inch DeWalt miter saw that has been known to trip the 20A breakers in my garage on startup. While it handled the first two, the miter saw proved to be too much – it triggered an error and shut off the saw every time. Anker’s 767, in contrast, managed to handle it without issue.

A Geneverse HomePower Two Pro power station powers an electric kettle.

When it’s time to fuel up, the Geneverse doesn’t fool around, slamming about 1,450 watts from the wall for total recharge times under two hours. That’s a hair lower than the rated 1,500 watts but still impressive.

User interface and app

The screen on the Geneverse is like nearly every other power station we’ve ever reviewed, which is a good thing. It’s a simple layout (input on the left, output on the right, charge capacity in a center ring) that doesn’t need reinvention.

Like most power stations in this price class, the Geneverse HomePower Two Pro comes with an iOS and Android app to keep tabs on power away when you’re away from the screen. You get all the same information from the screen, plus some more advanced options that would be too difficult to program with buttons. For instance, you can set timers to power different circuits on and off at designated times, which could be useful to cut down on standby consumption. You can also switch to a battery-saving mode to prolong its life, or monitor usage statistics.

Screenshots show the features in Geneverse's iOS app for its HomePower Pro power stations.

The only notable omission is the ability to set a cap for charging wattage, which you’ll miss if you start popping breakers with this monster’s 1,450-watt charging rate. The next best thing is a “quiet mode,” which caps input around 530 watts and turns off the fans.

One maddening thing about the app: it connects via Wi-Fi rather than Bluetooth. That means that during a power outage where your router may be knocked out, or when camping, the app won’t connect. Competing apps from Anker and Bluetti use Bluetooth, which makes much more sense.

Solar options

With two 8020 solar connectors (big DC barrel jacks) on the back, the HomePower Two Pro can handle up to a combined 800W of solar input. That’s frankly more than you’ll probably be able to achieve with the offered accessories. Geneverse offers folding panels in 100- and 200-watt-per-panel flavors. You’d need four of the latter to hit capacity – a $2,516 purchase.

That’s expensive even by the marked-up standards of portable solar panels. A single 200-watt Geneverse panel goes for $629, while Anker only charges $549 for its panel, and Bluetti charges $449. All three use monocrystalline cells and claim 23% efficiency, but different connectors on the competitors would prevent you from simply using a competing panel with this power station unless you want to get into adapters.

We’ll give Geneverse credit for staying cutting-edge in its solar tech — it’s one of only a couple of companies that offer bifacial solar panels, which can absorb reflected light from behind them, making them more efficient. Geneverse sent us a pair for evaluation, and we’ll be providing an update on performance after a more thorough evaluation.

Power to spare, for a premium

If you need every drop of its best-in-class 2.4kWh capacity, the $2,499 Geneverse Homepower Pro Two makes a capable and reliable home backup solution. You’re paying a big premium to be at the top of the heap on capacity in this size, but the clean design and five-year warranty make it a little easier to swallow.

If you can live with just a fraction less capacity, a number of other alternatives offer more features for less money. The Jackery Explorer 2000 Pro brings a 12V DC output for $2,099, the Anker 767 brings a smarter design with wheels and a telescoping handle for $1,999, and both the EcoFlow Delta Max 2000 and Bluetti AC200MAX offer modular expandability for $1,599 and $1,699, respectively.

It’s a good product

The Geneverse HomePower Two Pro is an impressive solar generator, providing up to 7 days of energy. Perfect for anyone needing a portable backup power station that’s lightweight and easy to transport, the HomePower Two Pro offers superior performance in every respect.

With capacities of 1210Wh (ONE PRO) or 2419Wh (TWO PRO), you should have plenty of juice left to power all of your important devices and home appliances.

It also features a battery charge indicator, which displays how much remaining power there is at any given time. You can charge it using either a wall outlet, solar panels or vehicle outlets.

Geneverse HomePower Two Pro has its shortcomings, but overall the design and functionality are excellent. It’s user-friendly and a joy to play with.

The unit comes with a convenient carrying case molded to nest into the top of the device. This case is easy to open and holds both your device and charging cable securely.

The device measures two feet tall with rounded edges. Clad in metallic silver and dark gray plastic, it looks like a modern kitchen appliance. It features an 8mm port for charging from solar panels as well as a 3-pin 120V port that can be charged using standard power outlets.

It’s a bad product

The Geneverse HomePower Two Pro is a 2.4kWh solar-powered backup power station that weighs in at just over one and a half pounds. With its impressive output for such a small unit, you can use it to power the modern day equivalent of a space heater.

This company boasts an impressive US customer service presence and offers one of the longest warranties in this category. Furthermore, they provide some of the most competitive pricing we’ve encountered for products in this class.

Aside from its impressive 2.4kWh battery, the HomePower Two Pro also boasts an array of features like its patented Smart Charge technology which intelligently charges your device. Furthermore, an integrated LED display can tell you when to charge your gadget best.

Finally, HomePower Two Pro provides an attractive user interface to manage its power station and associated apps. Here you can check your battery status, monitor usage statistics, set timers for input/output devices, as well as take advantage of augmented reality mode which lets you view your home’s energy consumption remotely.

The Geneverse HomePower Two Pro is an elegant and well-designed power station that deserves to be on your list of must-buys. While it may not be the cheapest option, its quality and dependability far surpass that of its competitors. Plus, you don’t need to worry about paying for annual subscriptions to numerous useless devices – its Smart Charge technology will keep your appliances running in case of power outage!

It’s a good price

The Geneverse HomePower Two Pro is an impressive product that offers great value at its price point. It boasts a large capacity, rapid charge time, and smart app control for ease of use. Furthermore, this power station is highly versatile; it can even work as a generator when required.

One of the key advantages of this system is its ultra-efficient LiFePO4 batteries, which have a higher cost than standard lithium-ion batteries but also boast several other benefits like their 6x lifespan (over 10 years at 80% capacity), 2x faster charge rate, and resistance to extreme temperatures. Furthermore, each power station can store either 1210Wh of energy (one power station) or 2419Wh (two power stations) of energy – providing days of emergency backup for essential home appliances and devices.

This power station can be charged from a solar panel, AC outlet or car charger. Once full, it stores energy for one year before needing recharging.

Setting up and using the power station is a breeze, taking only 30 seconds to get going. It boasts an intuitive display, built-in LED light, and mobile app for remote control of the power station.

The Geneverse HomePower Two Pro includes an 8mm 2-to-1 converter that enables you to connect two 200W solar panels together. Alternatively, you can purchase multiple solar panels and use them with either the ONE or TWO PRO as a battery backup station.

You can purchase additional power converters to transform the output from solar panels into a standard 120V outlet. Depending on your requirements, you can purchase these converters separately or bundle them with your power station to save money.

Another major advantage of the LFP power station is that it charges quickly from solar panels or car chargers, making it ideal for people who like to travel light but require backup power sources.

Finally, the Geneverse HomePower Two Pro is an incredibly durable and sturdy system. Although its battery and panels may appear bulky at first glance, rest assured that this robust system can provide you with reliable backup power for years to come.

It’s a bad price

Although the price tag on Geneverse HomePower Two Pro may seem high, you get an excellent value for the power backup you receive. This unit is a reliable, powerful device that can run a range of appliances for up to seven days if needed.

Though not the ideal solution for every household, having a backup generator in case of an emergency can be invaluable. Being able to keep your phone charged and run a fridge can be lifesaving in places where gas isn’t readily accessible or available.

The 2.4kWh capacity is more than enough to meet your needs, and it can even power a 1,300-watt space heater temporarily. This makes it an ideal addition to camping or overlanding gear.

You could use it as a standalone backup generator, or combine it with solar panels for even greater power output. We tested a HomePower Two Pro combined with two 200W SolarPower 2 panels and were amazed at how quickly our test battery was charged on sunny summer days – charging in just a few hours!

Unfortunately, we noticed the power output of our panel would drop dramatically on cloudy winter days. This was especially apparent when charging heavy items such as phones or laptops – both of which drain battery life quickly.

That is why it is essential to purchase a quality solar panel that can support the output from the Geneverse HomePower Two Pro. Some excellent options include Anker 767 and Bluetti AC200MAX, both offering monocrystalline cells with 23% efficiency. We also recommend the Xantrex CPV200 for its more compact design and warranty coverage.
