  • Specializes in providing outdoor green power solutions for explorers, Jackery launched the world's first Lithium Portable Power Station in 2015. Jackery Portable Power Station, Power Outdoors.

Jackery makes charging-on-the-go convenient with the Bolt power bank that features two built-in charging cables.

The design of the Bolt has been updated and addresses the issue with using it with a phone case. Check out my updated Jackery Bolt review for 2017.

PROs

  • Built-in charging cords: Probably the biggest advantage of the Jackery Bolt is that it has both a built-in MFi-certified Lightning cable and a built-in Micro USB charging cable.  Both cables tuck nicely into the sides of the power bank, making it an ideal “grab and go” power bank.
  • 6000mAh capacity: This provides enough juice for about 2 full recharges to most smartphones, or a partial charge to an iPad.
  • 2.4 amp output: If you want to (partially) charge an iPad or tablet quickly, the 2.4 amp output on this unit allows your device to charge a full speed.  1 amp gadgets (such as smartphones) charge fine with this power bank as well.
  • 2 amp input: You don’t need to wait around all day for this power bank to recharge.  If you use a 2 amp charging brick (such as the one that came with your iPad, or this AmazonBasics unit) to recharge this unit, it can typically be done in about 4 hours.
  • Sleek design: The brush aluminum, black finish gives this power bank a very nice overall appearance (although, I am missing Jackery’s signature orange power banks).
  • Built-in flashlight: A small LED can be turned on to light your path in the dark with two taps of the power button.

CONs

  • Not case friendly: This was close to being a perfect power bank, but the Lightning connector does not protrude enough to fit most iPhone cases.  So you’ll likely need to remove your phone’s case to use the built-in charging cables.  Or use your own charging cable with the full-sized USB port on the power bank.
  • No built-in cable for recharging the power bank: To recharge the power bank itself, you’ll still need to remember to bring the included Micro USB cable (and a USB wall charger, which is not included).

Overall, I like the convenience of this power bank as you don’t need to remember to bring your own charging cable.  I just wish the Lightning connector would stick out more so it would fit my case.  If you don’t use a case (or have a case that’s very open on the bottom), then this would not be an issue for you.

Great

Built-in Lightning (iPhone) and Micro USB (Android) cables make this power bank ultra-convenient for grab-and-go charging. However, the connectors may not reach your charging port if you have a case on your phone.
