Digital Treasures ChargeIt! Jump Portable Power Pack and Jump Starter

Screen Shot 2015-02-09 at 3.33.36 PMI have been skeptical about this battery and its ability to jumpstart the car. However, after testing it for a few weeks I am now a believer: It really delivers on its premise. I have not tested it with the car, but with my John Deere lawn mower. It has a bad battery that needs replacing, but I haven’t had the time to do it so far. Instead I’ve been jump starting it using one of the large conventional jump starter batteries. It got the job done, but the setup was pretty unwieldy. Now with this much smaller and much more convenient battery I was able to do it really quickly and easily. I was amazed that a battery of this size can do such a thing, and do it repeatedly. That in and of itself makes it a really worthwhile investment. However, it also works as a conventional backup charger for all of your small electronic devices.

I’ve used and tested many external batteries, and a 7,500 mAh is a decent sized mid range portable battery. I’ve tested it with several small and medium electronic devices, which I had previously completely depleted. I was able to fully charge first generation iPad, iPhone 6 plus, iPhone 5S and iPad Mini – all from a single charged ChargIt! battery and with plenty of leftover charge. I have not tested it with the latest generation iPad Air, but my guess would be that Scorpion would be able to fully charge it as well.

The battery comes with a really nice carrying case and a host of accessories – wall outlet charger, jump start cables, car lighter charging adapter, and a multipurpose USB charging cable. I have tested all of these accessories and they all work as advertised. This battery feels like a Swiss Army Knife of portable batteries.

This is a beautifully made external battery. It is, as you would expect it, fairly large and heavy, but not as heavy as some other such batteries. This may be the ultimate emergency battery that you keep with you in your car, and it comes with a really nice and elegant case.
