When it comes to power outages or other emergency situations, you know what they say: Better safe than sorry. Portable power banks provide peace of mind. Not only do they shed light should things go dark, but they can power up life-sustaining equipment and your fridge for keeping food and medicines safe. Don’t wait until an emergency. The Jackery Portable Power Station 160 is on sale for $140 (was $150).
This is a hefty portable power bank that can handle multiple devices for long periods of time. It packs a punch with a 167 watt-hour lithium-ion battery. The bank is also designed to charge just about anything, from smartphones and laptops to mini-coolers and drones. It comes with two USB-A ports, one USB-C port, a 110-volt AC power outlet. It even boasts a 24-month warranty, just in case.
And no need to save it for an emergency: Take it camping, hunting or whenever you find yourself needing some juice.
“Today was my test day and I must say I am extremely happy with this product,” wrote a satisfied reviewer. “Besides camping, I live in a hurricane-prone area and two things I have learned: You can't take everything with you, and you don't know what you will be facing when you return after an evacuation.... I have charged my laptop, two phones, handheld radios, emergency lighting and tested it with my CPAP and all worked well. When I need to evacuate, this will go with me. I would also like to mention the sales/service department that answered all of my questions.”
Sing us a song, piano man: "Excellent value.... I got this because I am a musician and I’ve been gigging a lot at local farmers markets, which don’t always have a power source for my equipment. I used a surge protector and plugged it into this generator, and I plugged my amp and full piano keyboard into it. I performed for three straight hours with my keyboard at half volume and amp at near full volume, and it only went down to 64%."
"I love mine," said another empowered user. "Easy to use on the go when you need a power source, love the carrying case for all the cords. Excellent customer service dept. Responded quickly when I reached out after losing power cord. They sent a replacement right away. I plan to buy the solar panel attachment next. Recommend this product."
