Is The Zendure 600M The Quietest Power Station With This Capacity (607Wh)?
The Zendure SuperBase 600M is a portable power station that might be the perfect one for travelers, especially RVers.
It doesn’t have a fan, which should make it a great battery to power a CPAP machine with.
Besides the fanless design, it’s also very lightweight for the capacity it carries (607Wh) and has a compact design.
It’s not only for Rvers, but for tent campers and homeowners as well. It has the largest and brightest LEDs I have seen on a power station.
But is it powerful enough in other ways? That’s what I hope to answer with this review.

The SuperBase 600M has a 607Wh battery capacity. It uses Li-Ion batteries, which are usually rated for 500-1000 lifecycles to 80%.
You can power electronics that use up to 600W with the built-in inverter. It has a surge wattage rating of 1000W.
There are two AC outlets, one two- and one three-prong.
Three USB A ports capable of outputting up to 12W, and one USB C PD port that supports both input and output up to 100W.
One 12V cigarette lighter plug, and two 5.5×2.1mm DC outputs. The plug made for 12V devices like fridge/freezers can output up to 10A (120w).
It’s a regulated 12V port that outputs a steady 12.75V.
There are two inputs, one for charging through solar and one for the wall charger.
There are several ways to charge the Zendure 600M.
Right out of the box, you can charge it with either the included wall or car charger.
You can also charge with solar or USB C.
The built-in solar charge controller supports voltages between 18 and 24V (but I got it to charge up to 30V) and currents up to 10A (120W).
That means that you have a lot of options for solar charging. A lot of the portable and foldable solar panels on the market include 5.5×2.1mm connectors, which can plug directly into the Zendure.
If you would like some solar panel recommendations, please leave a comment and let me know what kind of electricity needs you have.
To charge through USB C, all you have to do is buy a USB C PD wall charger and plug that into the Zendure with a USB C to USB C cable.
It has a great LCD display that gives you all the information you need.
It tells you the input/output watts, active ports, time to empty/full, and battery percentage/bars.
On the opposite site of the ports there is a huge LED-light that can be very useful if you’re out camping. It’s also useful at home during power outages.
It’s a 10W LED light with four levels of brightness, an emergency signal mode. It works like a flashlight, and is controlled with one of the buttons on the top.
Another feature is the built-in handle on top that makes it easy to carry and transport the Zendure.
It’s a strong and durable handle I don’t think is going to break off even if you’re rough with it.
In The Box
Zendure includes a wall and a car charger.
Size And Weight
It weighs 14.1 lbs (6.4 kg) and measures 11 x 7.4 x 5.4 inches (28 x 19 x 13.8 cm)
A question I often get is how loud a power station is. Most have fans that can be quite aggressive, meaning that it doesn’t take much for them to spin up.
They’re often loud and not ideal for sleeping next to, that’s why a big pro with the Zendure 600M is that it doesn’t have a fan. It’s silent, and perfect for CPAP users.
Extremely bright LED lights
I have never seen LED lights this bright on a power station, and there are a lot of them. It’s bright enough to be used as a flashlight outside at night, or in a house during a power outage.
I think it’s great that Zendure could fit these enormous lights on a compact power station.
100W USB C PD Port
I love a good USB C PD port, and the one on the SuperBase 600M is great. Being able to both charge my MacBook at 100W, and to charge the battery itself with a 100W USB C PD charger is excellent.
You can charge using both DC and AC simultaneously, and increase the charging watts significantly.
That’s also true with the USB C PD port, so you can use both the regular wall charger and a USB C PD charger at the same time.
I hope that more manufacturers make power stations this way, because a lot of travelers want to use both a car and a solar charger at the same time.
No app support
Zendure has an app for smartphones that works with its larger power stations, but it does not support the 600M because it doesn’t have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth built-in.
I wish it did, since it’s how I monitor and control my power stations most of the time.
In the first heading I had a question: Is this the quietest portable power station with a capacity this high?
After testing it for a couple of weeks, I have the answer to that question: Yes, it is.
It is a silent power station, and I didn’t think that was possible with a 600W inverter.
But it’s not only silent, it’s also versatile. I can think of a lot of scenarios where the 600M would be the ultimate power station.
With several charging options, a large display, large LED lights, and a powerful USB C PD port, it’s a great power station that I recommend.
Zendure makes more power stations, like the larger SuperBase Pro 2000. This is the better option if you want to power larger appliances during a power outage.
If you have any issues with the power station, the customer service team over at Zendure (email@example.com) promises to respond within 24 hours.
