Check Price on Amazon

You would expect a rechargeable power source that has a proven name in the industry like Duracell attached to it to be a good one. Most user reviews say that is the very case with the Duracell Powerpack Pro 1300. It can come in very handy when you are in a remote place far from any AC outlets or you need to jumpstart your car and you don’t feel like waiting for AAA to come rescue you.

Here are some of the highlights and potential concerns that you get with this rechargeable power pack:

PROS:
  • 1300 peak amps of jumpstarting power (w/attached jumper cables)
  • Built-in 160 PSI air compressor
  • Molded carrying handle
  • Includes an adjustable LED light
  • Features 12V socket, 2-110v AC plugs and 2 USB ports
  • Reverse polarity alarm
CONS:
  • Slightly heavy to carry at 23 pounds
  • Needs to be recharged every few months or the battery life diminishes quickly

Built right into its solid plastic housing is a 12V DC plugin, 2 – 110V AC standard outlets and 2 USB ports. That is a lot of choices when it comes to powering up devices remotely.

Not only can this device be used to charge up a laptop, several smartphones or power a light all night long at your campsite but it can also be used to jumpstart your vehicle (jumper cables built right into it), refill your tires after driving on the beach and it can even be used as a backup power source for an important piece of medical equipment.

CONCLUSION:
Despite the fact this unit is a little on the heavy side to carry around by its molded handle, it can still be conveniently stored in your garage, car or recreational vehicle so it’s ready when you need it. It features an easy to read LED battery level meter and it takes just a few minutes to learn to operate it.
