Jackery Mini Review

Every taken a long flight and use your smartphone and tablet to the point where it dies and find yourself bemoaning the fact that you didn’t charge it all the way, or don’t have an outlet to plug your device into? Enter what has to be one of the best value products that Gaming Illustrated has reviewed in the last year – the Jackery Mini. It’s an ultra-compact external battery pack charger that is the size of a large stick of lipstick. It holds 2600mAh and offers a USB connection so users can plug in their iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad, Nexus… you name it. Any USB-chargeable device can be saved by the Jackery Mini, which offers up to a whopping fifty (50) hours of extra operation time.

What Does the Jackery Mini Do?

Quite frankly, the Jackery Mini saves your ass whenever a device runs out of power. This is a problem that every single device owner has experienced at one point or another and this little gadget is a pure lifesaver. This most especially happens while travelling, but really, keeping the Jackery Mini in your laptop bag or even on your person is a wise idea. The unit plugs into your computer, sucks in juice for about 5-6 hours and then is all ready to have a device plug into it and provide the power.

Performance

The Jackery Mini is a revelation for gadget geeks. Our first test saw a completely dead iPhone 5 charge up to 100% in less than an hour. While it doesn’t boast it, the recharge times seemed to be quicker than the standard plug into the wall. In additional, using a smartphone (iPhone 5) or a tablet (fourth-generation iPad) worked wonderfully. With the press of the single button on the Jackery Mini, the device flows power from its reserves into the plugged in device. It really is that simple and the amount of extra operation time the Jackery Mini provides is really impressive.

Price Value

The Jackery Mini is offered up at Amazon for only $29.95 which is well below what we believe to be the opportunity value of the product. It’d be more than reasonable to pay 25-35% more and still think that it was priced appropriately. For gadget geeks that travel a ton, this device is an immediate must-buy and overall, it also has a nice wow-factor if you like to brag about having the latest and greatest.

Overall Impression

It’s rare that a new gadget comes out that fills a hole in life that the industry has ignored, but the Jackery Mini has done just that. Most similar rechargeable batteries for smartphones and tables are double or even triple the size and weight of the Jackery Mini, and cost more too. For under $30, this little handy friend will be there when a smartphone or tablet needs it most and comes highly recommended for purchase.

For under $30 you get a lightweight and small rechargeable battery that gives you up to 50 hours of additional operational time. It also seems to rapidly charge devices too. A no-brainer purchase.

The unit works as advertised and offered up 30+ hours of additional working time on an iPhone 5, plus charged it from 0-100% in about an hour. Very impressive.
