Power Your Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and Car with Cyntur’s JumperPack Mini

They say you can never have too much money. I don't know if that's true. Shakespeare had King Richard shouting "A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!" I don't ride a horse, but I do have a couple of old convertibles that have had the battery die on occassion, so I can relate. All the money in the world won't help you if your car and phone batteries are dead and nobody is around to help. That's why I was very excited to see the JumperPack mini from Cyntur.

I liked that the JumperPack offers a huge 12,000 mAh of power and still fits in a glove box. This battery pack charges USB devices at 2.1 Amps, suitable for an iPad, in addition to 12V DC. I also liked that it offers safe charging for cars, motorcycles, and boats, so you don't need to worry about plugging it in the wrong way. Also, it has a flashlight and at $99.99, it's reasonably priced. This is one of the few products I've reviewed where I've struggled to find a "con" to write about  Perhaps it could have more than one USB port? My only real complaint is that I didn't have one earlier, on one of the several occasions when my roadster's battery died!
