Envision this: you get to your car after a great outing, only to discover that your car won’t start. Even worse, your phone is dead. What to do? What to do?
Worry no more if you have the myCharge Adventure Jump Start. A rechargeable 6600mAh portable charger, it includes detachable jumper cables to jump-start your own car and also charge phones or other USB devices. What a great sample to get for review.
The Adventure Jump Start has a pleasing heft to it, it really feels like it could possibly jump a car. I’ve had one chance to try it, and unfortunately it didn’t work. I ascribe it to the freezing temps, because the car did regain light but wasn’t able to run over. Believe you me, though, I’ll keep it in the emergency kit and won’t hesitate pulling it out should the occasion arise.
Even if a jump-start is not in the cards, it’s great to have an extra battery around, easily used with its built-in USB port and built-in micro-USB cable. The integrated LED flashlight and SOS flasher add to its utility.
myCharge claims this portable powerbank gives you hyper-charge: ultra-fast charging of your devices that is 50-65% faster than competitors. Another definite benefit of the Adventure Jump Start is the Pass-Through Charging: plugging in adds to the powerbank storage while charging a connected device simultaneously. Nice.
As with all safety items, this is gear you hope to never have to use. Still, I’ll feel better knowing it’s stowed in the car should I ever need it, for myself, or someone else.
At a MSRP of $99.99, this is both safety and peace of mind in your pocket.
