Energen EN-PJX6 12000 mAh Car Jump Starter & Portable Power Bank

4 out of 5 eggs Great power and convenience! 11/04/2015

This review is from: Energen EN-PJX6 12000 mAh Car Jump Starter & Portable Power Bank

Pros: A lot of power
Great cable management and options
A lot of power tips for nearly any device
VERY bright flashlight
Having peace of mind of having a battery to jump start my car at all times is worth it

Cons: Proprietary power plug
Short jumper cable wire separating the positive and negative clips
Drains on its own with no use fairly quickly

Other Thoughts: I absolutely LOVE this device! It's small, compact, has a GREAT carying case, and holds a LOT of power! It can charge nearly every wireless device I own, including my laptop, my old AND my new iPhone, and anything else that can charge with USB and most laptop-style power cables.

The flashlight is EXTREMELY bright! It would be hard to miss in the case of an emergency. It rivals professional MAG lights, which is impressive with a single LED.

I deducted one egg for two reasons. I have to remember to charge the device about once a week even when I don't use it, as the battery seems to drain fairly quickly on it's own. I could probably go 2 to 3 weeks without charging it, but I like to keep it fully charged in case of emergencies. The second reason is the length of the jumper cable wires. The way my car is designed, the battery is in the trunk and is not easily accessable. There is a positive terminal under the hood, but the engine block to connect the negative wire is beyond the length of the included wire. I can get around this by hooking the negative clip to another jumper cable wire, then to the engine block, or by disassembing the battery compartment in my trunk and going directly to the battery. The fact that I can charge this device with either a regular power plug OR the included ciggarette lighter adapter helps, so even with these two negatives, it still deserves 4 eggs!

Pros: Long lasting
Small
Convenient
Easy to use

Cons: Bright LEDs
Long charge time

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this charger. I got it as a daily deal, but even the regular price is well worth it for the amount of power this thing holds. I have used it to charge my iPhone 5s and iPad Air 2 several times each between charges. I've had experienced issues with other power bricks where they loose their charge after a week or so of no use, but this one stays charged.

It definitely holds a large amount of power, which means it can take a LONG time to charge when it's completely depleted. Once I went to charge it overnight, and it still wasn't completely filled by the next morning. It didn't take TOO much longer to fully charge, but it still seemed like a long time. Even with that, though, I still give this 5 eggs! This is the second one I purchased.

My other con about the LEDs being bright is only inconvenient if it's charging in the same room where I'm sleeping. Seeing as I don't, I can't really deduct an egg for that either!
