This guide will walk you through all the power options available for the Mark 2, ensuring you can keep cool no matter where you are.

Rechargeable Battery for Mark 2

To enhance portability and ease of use in off-grid environments, the ZERO BREEZE Mark 2 air conditioner comes with a separate battery. The Mark 2 battery has a capacity of 840Wh and consumes between 20W and 300W depending on the mode (Fan: 20W, Sleep: 120W, Cooling: 150W, Rocket: 240W). Power consumption may vary depending on the environment. This allows the Mark 2 to run for up to 8 hours in sleep mode under optimal conditions, making it ideal for use in relatively small sleeping areas at night.

Charging Options The Mark 2 battery can be charged in various ways, including via a car cigarette lighter, solar panels, and AC power supplies. Before heading out camping or during a rest stop at the campsite, charge the battery to full capacity to ensure you have power later without draining your car's battery.

Portable Power Stations for Mark 2

The Mark 2 is designed to be compatible with various power solutions, allowing you to adapt it to your existing power system instead of relying solely on our provided options. If you prefer not to use our add-on battery, you can use your own portable power station as long as it meets the voltage and power requirements. The Mark 2 can be powered through the AC output of portable power stations using the included power adapter. Alternatively, you can power the Mark 2 air conditioner through the DC output of your power station.

DIY/RV Battery System for Mark 2

A more advanced way to power the Mark 2 air conditioner is by using your own battery system. Most battery systems are either 12V or 24V, and should have a power output of over 300W. For a 12V system, you'll need a 12V to 24V converter to connect it to the Mark 2. Alternatively, you can connect two 12V batteries in series to meet the 24V input requirement, then use the DIY cord to connect the batteries to the Mark 2.
