Great product!!!

Ricardo R. Vega, Amazon Customer Review

“I use a C-pap at night to sleep so I needed a solution for a camping trip with my son’s cub scout group. This powerpack was perfect for our two night stay and I was even able to recharge our phones and even help give a jump start to their someone’s car who’s battery had died.

Please note that even though it would of lasted the 2 nights I did recharge it after the first night at a near by facility just so I would not worry about it. Great product!!!”


I used this while on vacation…It lasted all week

AverageJoe, Amazon Customer Review

“I used this while on vacation to power a 20 watt CD player and charge various cell phones, cameras, etc while on the beach. It lasted all week, playing music for 4+ hours a day without being charged. I haven’t used any of the other functions other than the DC, AC and USB ports. Hoping I don’t need to use the jumper cables.”
