In this review, we delve deeper into the various features of the SMARTECH Power Kit to help you determine whether or not it may be a good fit for you.
Features of the SMARTECH Power Kit
As highlighted above, this power kit is well equipped to do more than just charge your devices and inflate your cars. Here is a look at some of the features that makes it such a robust tool set-:
Multiple charging ports
For the SMARTECH Power Kit to charge the various digital devices and home appliances, it has a total of two USB ports as well as a 12-volt power source that is compatible with most of the devices you would use ordinarily. For small appliances, you will conveniently have them charged using the 12-volt port and for your digital devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets, the two USB ports will be sufficient to ensure all your gadgets don’t run out of battery.
As such, this is a handy tool for those who love camping and still want to stay connected. It can also make a great companion when you don’t want to get inconvenienced with regular power outages. You should, however, note that the charger can only be used for vehicles with engines capacity of 5.5 liters and below.
The SMARTECH Power Kit contains a lithium-ion battery with 12,000 milliamps of power. So powerful are the batteries that they can be used for up to one year without being charged. As such, you may be tempted to think that charging them to full capacity will also require a long time, but you will be pleased to know that you only need seven hours to charge to bring them from dead to fully charged. However, it is recommended that when you purchase this kit, you should charge the batteries once every three months for optimal performance.
If you have ever been stranded simply because your car’s battery died and you had to wait for hours for help, then you fully understand the importance of having a vehicle jump-starter with you all the time. The SMARTECH Power Kit comes with a vehicle jump-starter as well as two battery clamps that will come to your rescue each time your car refuses to start. In addition to jumpstarting cars, the power kit can also be used to jumpstart trucks, SUVs, boats, vans, RVs, and motorcycles.
And if you are afraid of using the jump starter with no experience or knowledge of its mechanical operations, just know that all you need to do is to put the battery cables on the right nodes and power it on. If you put the battery cables up-side-down, the jump starter will beep at you, notifying you that the cables are not placed correctly.
The kit comes with a powerful 150PSI air pump that you can use to inflate all manner of things that require inflating. Whether it is your bicycle, flat tires, bouncing castles, pool toys, and soccer balls, the handheld air pump is sufficient to get the work done. Another feature worth noting about the air pump is the three adaptor pins and a LED light to help you see what you are doing, especially if you are using the pump during an emergency at night.
Clear digital display
When using the power kit, you will see what you are doing on an LCD digital display, written with clear, large numbers. The handheld air pumps also have a similar display which will allow you to set the level of pressure you want for the object you are inflating. While the object inflates, you will see the number change on the digital display, and this will give you more control since you will know when to exert more pressure and when to slow down when your target is nearly reached.
Comes with a carrying case
The kit has several parts, and it would be a nightmare to not have somewhere safe to carry and keep all the components. But luckily for you, the kit comes with a nicely designed case, with adequate compartments to carry all the parts. As such, whenever you are not using any part of the charger, you can safely tuck them inside the case so that they are not damaged or get misplaced. Though the case is made of fabric, it is strong enough to protect the kit with all its content, from the many bangs, bumps, and scratches that might affect it in the course of using or traveling with it.
