NEXGADGET Powerhouse 210Wh /42000mAh Laptop Power Bank, Portable Outlet Lithium-ion Power Supply for Camping Emergency Backup with DC, AC & USB Output

210WH (Watt Hours) is a lot of Energy packed into a small device such as this.. Think of 210WH as being able to power 2 100Watt light bulbs for a little over and hour each.. That’s a lot of energy considering most TVs, Laptops, Tables, and other devices are well under 30Watts and most under 15..

For example, this SHOULD be power my 28Watt TV for nearly 8 hours if all goes well! (Keep in mind, the powerhouse itself does require some power to operate it’s fans, sensors, and other parts). With that being said, I only expect to get 6 – 7 hours using my TV with this..

Here are my actual results

1.) TV – I got a little over 6 hours using my TV with this.. Pretty good eh?

2.) Mobile Phone – I got over 8 charges and still had power left, a lot of power.. I also charged one tablet during this time.

3.) Laptop – 3 Full Charges

Pros
1.) Small Size – This is the smallest form factor for this capacity I have seen

2.) Silent operation

3.) Works Very Well

4.) Includes carry case

5.) Charges virtually anything

6.) Powers virtually anything under 100Watts

Cons
1.) TSA – This is over the 100WH TSA rule meaning it shouldn’t and probably won’t be allowed on a plane

Overall: Excellent Device, so far I am very happy

Goal Zero Sherpa 100 Recharger

Short Review: Excellent DEVICE, especially with the inverter (Sold separately so grab it as well)..  Simply one of the best power banks on the market! This will charge my Huawei Mate 9 over 10 times from the USB ports.. It will charge my 2 DJI Spark batteries at least once each using the inverter, it will charge my Surface Pro 4 fully at least once!!  There is a lot of power in this!

Tips:  You can’t think of this as a powerbank with the typical mAH ratings we see all over Amazon.. You need to know how Watt Hours work and know that this is nearly a 100WH device!!  (Meaning it can power 100 watts for about 1 hour)

Tips 2: If you are trying to power a coffee pot, this WONT WORK.. Go for a Goal Zero Yeti 400 or higher.. You need more power for those!!

Tips 3: If you just plan on charging your cell phone while waiting on a bus, grab a cheap power bank and not this.. Save money.. THIS IS FOR OUTDOOR USE or people who need more power than your cheapo battery brick will offer.. 

Pros
1.) Can be carried on a plane
2.) Lithium (meaning it holds its charge for months)
3.) Includes laptop cables and more are available from Goal Zero
4.) Buy the inverter and this thing can produce 100 WATTS of power!!
5.) Small, easy to carry
6.) Uses are ENDLESS – Laptops, Drone Batteries, Cell Phones, Lights, pretty much anything
7.) Quality is outstanding
8.) Can be chained (linked) with other Sherpas for even more power
9.) Easy to charge VIA Goal Zero solar panels (Remember solar panels can convert energy but you need a way to store it.. This works VERY WELL)
10.) 98WH (Basically this means that this device can provide about 100 watts of power for 1 hour!)

Overall: This thing rocks!  It works well and is very high quality!

Solar Charger RAVPower 24W Solar Panel with Triple USB Ports Waterproof Foldable for Smartphones Tablets and Camping Travel

Short Review: Wonderful Solar CHARGER that will quickly charge 3 devices at once.. I quickly charged 3 battery banks with this charger today and within a few hours all where 100% charged.. One of the battery banks is a Goal Zero Venture 30 which is a 7800mAH battery bank. Another is the Griffin Outdoor 10,000mAH battery bank and the smaller one is just an inexpensive 2500mAH bank.. On a sunny day in TN, this charger had no issues fully charging all the banks AT THE SAME TIME in under 5 hours.

Tips: Before I get into the rest of the review, let me share a few “Solar” “Tips” with you
1.) While you can charge your devices such as phones and tablets from the solar panel itself, I recommend charging power storage devices like I did in the photos.. Two reasons for this.. Depending on external factors, this charger might not always offer enough power to charge your high usage device.. And second, its not good for your phones to stay in the sun all day

2.) Remember, weather (Even on sunny days), time of day, location, and other factors will affect output wattage.. I always recommend that a buyer only expect a charger to charge with ON AVERAGE half its capacity.. So with this charger, I expect it to average 12 watts on good days. I have received as much as 18 watts from this charger but it does only average 12 watts but that is standard!

Pros:
1.) Very HIGH output! – I average at least 12 watts out of this charger but have hit as many as 18 watts.. This is fine and is actually EXCELLENT from a charger of this size! Don’t expect 24Ws all the time, it will never happen even with $1,000 chargers

2.) Wonderful BUILD Quality

3.) 3 USB ports – Most of these chargers on the market only have 2 ports

4.) RACPower offers excellent support

5.) The pouch that houses the USB ports seems to be waterproof – It has a DWP coating on the inside!! Excellent

6.) Simple to use

Overall: Great charger!! I love it and highly recommend it!

Skullcandy Barricade Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker

Amazon Review

Short Review: Excellent, Rugged, and AMAZING speaker that doubles as a power bank! 100% waterproof. Amazing Sound! Great price! I purchased this after owning the mini which is also awesome, but what are the differences?

1.) This one is waterproof, the mini barricade isn’t. It’s only water resistant
2.) This one has a 10watt speaker meaning louder and deeper bass and better sound quality overall
3.) The mini does NOT double as a power bank, this one does
4.) The mini does not have a microphone, but this one does

Both are very well built and durable. My mini goes backpacking with me and places when I don’t have as much space

Pros
1.) Waterproof: IPX7 meaning it can be dropped in water less than 3 FT deep for a Max of 30 minutes. So this is 100% waterproof!
2.) Battery Bank: Doubles as a battery bank so if your hiking or camping this can charge your GoPro or phone! A phone might drain most of the speakers battery but it’s a good feature
3.) Easy to Pair
4.) Best sounding speaker for this price! This puts to Shane even $100+ speakers
5.) 10 Watts meaning plenty of sound and bass
6.) Skullcandy Quality and Support which is awesome! Anytime I have had issues, I just send them the speaker or headphones (whatever failed) and they just give me a full value gift card for their site! You can opt for an exchange but I just opt for the gift card.. I have only needed this option twice and both times where on headphones older than 4 years old so yeah their warranty rocks (keep in mind, Bluetooth devices do have a shorter warranty)

Overall! Simply awesome speaker!

MixMart 24000mAh Power Bank with 3-USB Ports & 1-AC Outlet for All Laptops, Tablets, Smartphones

Use: I grabbed this to use with my Microsoft Surface on the go! USB powerbanks don’t offer enough power to really charge the surface!!

Short Review: Excellent CHARGER and it last for a very very long time if just charging from the USB ports. When you turn on the AC outlet, it does drain the external battery VERY quickly but did offer enough power to charge my surface fully over 1 time WHILE I was using it!! To me, this is excellent performance! Final note, you can use the AC outlet and USB ports at the same time and provide powerful charging to multiple devices!!

Pros
1.) Very Durable – This is a large device so I have accidently dropped it a few times but no issues!
2.) AC Outlet – This is the best part of this power bank! The AC Outlet can be used on several devices (See list of my test below).. Depending on the device, it might drain this power bank fairly quickly however.. My surface can drain it from 100% to empty in right over one full charge (while the surface is being used).. To help you visualize this a little better. the Surface batter is UNDER 5500mAH and this battery bank offers 24000mAH in power
3.) TRUE 24000mAH battery – when using the USB ports, this battery does seem to be a full 24000mAH.. It charged my phone over 6 times with no issues on a single charge.. My phone has a 3500mAH battery .. 3500mAH X 6 Charges = 21,000mAH and after 6 charges I have power left so it will probably charge it fully one more time if I needed it to
4.) Rubber Finish – Being a larger device and semi heavy, this grip is very welcome
5.) 3 USB ports
6.) Emergency Light
7.) Can charge my Surface and Mobile phone at the same time
8.) Can charge multiple devices QUICKLY at the same time

Tested AC Outlet with
1.) Microsoft Surface – 1 full charge while being used
2.) Desk Lap – Powered for 5 hours and still had power left! The lamp was however using an LED bulb
3.) Cell Phone Charger – Tested just for the heck of it.. The battery drains much quicker using the Cell Phone Charger vs a USB port but it does work.. Id recommend USB port for charging tablets and phones
4.) Paper Shredder – Using it for business I tested with a paper shredder and it worked wonderfully all day!!
5.) Computer (With power strip) – I tested with the computer and monitor only (Didn’t want to overload it) and received about 25 minutes!! This is about average for smaller APC units.. I would say this is very impressive!

Tested USB ports with
1.) Nexus 6P – 6 full charges and power left
2.) IPhone 6 – 6 full charges and power left
3.) Kindle Fire HDX – 4 full charges but plenty of power for MORE full charges
4.) Generic Android Phone (With small battery) – 8 full charges and plenty of power left
5.) Nintendo 3DS – Plenty of power left after several charges
6.) GoPro, Yi Action Cams, and YI M1 Cameras – Charged all with no issues

Cons
1.) Size – This isn’t huge but it is much larger than a standard 24000mAH power bank! I really hope over the years, companies can make these smaller because they work wonderfully well!!

Basically, it should work fine with ANY USB device that allows charging over USB.. It should work with MOST AC Outlet devices as well!!

Overall: Simply impressive device!! One I would recommend to anyone! For my use, it works GREAT..
