Believe it or not, there’s another amazing gadget being invented – a pocket-sized power pack that can recharge your phone or jump-start your car. This is the product of today’s march of technology beyond the arena of apple and Google. It’s dubbed as “Cobra JumPack” which is also called as jump-start, breakdown battery charger.
You’re probably aware of the bulky and brightly-coloured power pack you could get for the purpose of jump-starting your car when your battery goes flat. It’s not especially portable because of its size and weight, is it? But here’s the latest replacement for that bulky thing – a pocket sized “Cobra.”
The bulky one is sure for you to carry by its handle but it has a lot of weight to lug around. So, you can put it in your boot and unless you have a good luggage net, it will slide all over the place. It’s just a bit awkward for use anywhere.
So, here’s now a smaller, lighter and of course better power pack. Fortunately, the forward march of technology in the world is not only limited to Apple and Google. Because here’s another potential competitor – check out the Cobra JumPack.
It’s a battery pack with similar width and length to the average smartphone. Its slots could fit into a car door pocket, a cup holder or a glove box. But it’s not for comfort inside the jeans pockets, but it could happily be inserted to the pockets of any of your reasonably practical jacket.
It’s really impressive when it works as it can release enough electric current in short burst to jump-start a vehicle with a flat battery. This power pack is made by squeezing the battery cells into a small package in order to get enough power to be able also to recharge a high-end smartphone even three times over.
Inside the battery package, you’ll get an in-car charger, a mains charger with a couple of foreign adapters, instruction leaflets in around 50 languages and jump leads which you can directly attach to the JumPack. A burst of 200 Amps will course through these leads which is enough to start the engine of your car.
There’s no doubt that this battery pack would really work after it was tested upon by an old, slightly lame and tired Skoda Fabia. The Cobra JumPack had to be fully charged for the task which was in accordance to the instruction leaflets. It was able to jump-start the Fabia by simply plugging the jump leads into the battery pack. Before doing this, the deceased ignition of the car was temporarily turned off.
Then, the red lead was connected to the positive terminal on the battery of the car and the black one was connected to the negative. Then the power button was pressed and turned on the ignition key. Then the Fabia’s engine instantly sparked to life, just like a dying hospital patient who had been given an electric shock and made alive.
Then, just similar to the standard jump-start, it’s better to drive the car to any destination in order to charge back your car’s own battery.
