myCharge AdventureJumpStart is the ultimate gadget to help you start a vehicle, and its pocket-sized design makes it ideal for bikers, too
Ever left home with a heavy heart not knowing if the battery on your bike or ATV will make it? Ever delayed the start of your motorcycle trip while waiting for the dealer to bring your battery back in stock? Ever ran out of breath pushing one of your mates’ bikes back to life? Well, all these are a thing of the past thanks to myCharge’s AdventureJumpStart.
AdventureJumpStart is a nifty combo made of a rather small 6,600 mAh powerbank coupled to a detachable jumper cable device that can save the day in emergency situations. The powerbank can, of course, be used like any other gadget of this kind, and charge phones, tablets and other USB-powered devices, but attaching the jumper cable part gives it special powers that really make a difference.
myCharge AdventureJumpStart can deliver 400 Amps peak jump start current and 200 Amps jump start current, while being capable to deliver 3,1 Amps directly via the USB port. That should be enough to kick some life in your vehicle and get you up and running again, unless very serious effects prevent that.
Inside the AdventureJumpStart we find a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery that can hold its charge for up to a year, the manufacturer claims. Also, the hyper-charge function allows this powerbank to refill up to 65% faster than the competition, while casual fast charging still makes it 50% faster than similar gadgets. Even with such bold figures, AdventureJumpStart is said to have one of the safest high-density batteries in the market.
For smaller current needs, you’ll find the pass-through charging function as useful as it gets, because it will allow you to charge an USB-powered device while the AdventureJumpStart itself is being charged. Talking about smart powerbanks…
The size and weight make it a glorious device that won’t take much space in your luggage. The AdventureJumpStart is ideal for both long-haul touring and fast-paced off-road fun on small-displacement machines, stowed away in a backpack. Weighing only 1.2 lbs (543 g) and measuring 4.4 in x 2.6 in x 1.0 in (11.2 x 6.6 x 2.5 cm), it leaves you with no excuse not to carry one with you.
And if you’re still not convinced, let’s add that the myCharge AdventureJumpStart retails for just under $100, with better deals possible through major online retailers such as BestBuy, Amazon and so on. Wondering how cool attaching the jumper cables to a big-ass powerbank could be…
