Recently Gooloo Technologies launched a powerful but tiny portable jump starter which also doubles as a power bank for your mobile devices. It’s a practical solution to a common problem that most of us face with our gadgets.
Whether it’s your car, boat, laptop, smartphone, camera, or any other device, running out of battery power is never a great thing, especially in 2018.
Designed with versatility and affordability in mind, the Gooloo G2000 is aiming for the title of the world’s lightest and most powerful universal power pack.
In a nutshell, this unit is essentially a sealed jump box that packs a ton of power, with more uses than you may realize.
Weighing in at a mere 1.8 pounds the G2000 features a very respectable 2,000 peak amps, with a starting current of 800 amps, which is more than the average 900 or so amps that you find in basic jump starters.
We’ve all been there at some point, stranded in a parking lot or in a driveway with a dead car battery because someone left the interior lights on, throughout the night in the middle of January.
Being stranded in an unfamiliar place can get a little intimidating even for the toughest of souls.
Some people might not feel at ease asking strangers for a boost in that hour of need. Portable battery power is certainly an answer for such situations, and it’s hard to argue against having one in emergency circumstances.
Delivering 1.5x more power than the competition, the G2000 is capable of jump-starting 12V car batteries without the need to be plugged in.
Better yet, it can do so through a vehicle’s cigarette lighter with the included 12 V socket adapter which is a bonus when trying to avoid opening up a car hood to find the battery terminals.
The built-in LED light acts as a flashlight when needed in those hard to see moments. The unit will also support portable tire inflators and an entire list of powered automotive accessories.
Always keep in mind that it makes for a tougher job for a vehicle’s alternator to have to completely charge a dead battery constantly.
To avoid overworking your alternator, and paying for a costly replacement job in the future, it’s always recommended to change a dead battery as quickly as possible.
These portable jump starters are meant for temporary relief in particular circumstances to help you get on your way quickly.
They are very useful if you don’t have access to a plugin unit which can take a few hours to charge a dead battery at a lower amperage setting.
Gooloo G2000 Powerbank
Gooloo is putting their years of experience in battery technology with this class-leading unit, which is yet another addition to their product portfolio.
Company founder, Xerro Chou:
The all-new GOOLOO G2000 jump starter is the result of thousands of hours of research, as well as overwhelming customer demand for our popular Amazon range. So many satisfied customers asked for an upgrade to their chargers we just had to create the incredible G2000
With the use of its lithium-ion battery, the G2000 also has a maximum capacity of 28,800mAh.
It suppots USB Type-C output up to 60W, and Quick Charging for powering nearly every portable mobile device from your laptop to your vacuum cleaner.
Which such a high-capacity charger, Gooloo needed to introduce a few safety measures to prevent accidents from occurring:
- Short circuit protection
- Reverse connection protection
- Overcharge protection
- Overcurrent protection
- High-temperature protection
- Over-discharge protection
- Surve voltage protection
- Reverse polarity protection
Perfect for that camping trip way up in the mountains far from civilization, having a portable power supply unit can potentially save you in emergency situations.
There’s also a little piece-of-mind with the 12-month warranty to go along with the list of safety features.
Rated for more than 1000 cycles, on paper the G2000 should last for a long time, making this a wise investment.
With its newly launched crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, you can take advantage of the early bird pricing of $119 USD which is %50 off the retail price. The estimated time for delivery is sometime in May of 2018.
