Exciting review coming up

on Thu Mar 08, 2018 12:35 pm
Yep, hold your hats for the excitement

Tomorrow a new car arrival!

Well, a new car related arrival...

Needed a solution for keeping a couple of laptops and cameras charged when out and about so ordered one of the mini jump pack things from Amazon. Looks ok in principle but will be interesting to see if it does as it says (after Andoo and Crix's comments about them)

For £70 its worth a go and will get sent back for a refund if it can't jump start a car AND charge laptops / USB devices

Yes, we've got a couple at work and they are very impressive.

However!!! DONT use them on, for example, a totally flat Shogun battery. They fry! (not the battery, the device)

But for normal size typical car battery types, we find them very impressive.

Are these things suitable for laptops and stuff? They must pack a big punch!

Ah I forgot this interesting review...

So, the short review is, it works!

The battery on the kit car is iffy to say the least so left the charger off it for a day or so then stuck this on and it started it up in the normal way

The outputs are useful, USB and USB to various different laptop connectors, annoyingly you need to buy a separate cable to charge the MacBook but half expected that anyway
