I absolutely *LOVE* this bit of kit – awesome tool to keep with your vehicle.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was sealed inside a protective polythene bag. That’s all it needed because the strong, solid carry case will protect any of the contents from damage. The case has hard sides, an attractively coloured zip to open, and a carrying handle.

When I opened the case, I found out how much more than just jump starting cars this little bit of kit can do. There’s a UK wall charger to power up the unit itself, and a car cigarette lighter type charger if you prefer to do it on the move. There’s a lead for the variable voltage output, with lots of adapters, meaning it can be used almost as a universal transformer when on the move. You can select 12v, 16v or 19v, so it’s great for various laptop models. The only other thing I could wish for is a 13A plug socket!!

Very nicely designed power bank, stores loads of power and has two outputs!

This item arrived packaged in an attractively printed, strong protective retail box. Opening the box showed the power bank unit itself, a Micro-USB charging cable (to charge the unit and/or a micro-USB ported phone), and a sensibly sized, well printed instruction manual.

What I like about this unit is the double output ports – there are three ports on the edge, one input (standard micro-usb) and two outputs. There’s a large, 6,000 mAh battery in this unit, which should keep your phone (my iPhone 6 has a 1,810 mAh battery) running for about three full charges, depending on the model. I found that, unlike some other devices, this was just as happy charging an iPad as an iPhone.
