Portable Car Jump Starters are one of the best portable chargers that you can own.
That’s because they’re still like any other power bank on the market but these ones are actually able to jump-start your car just in case your battery dies while you’re at your destination.
However, since the demand for these types of chargers is actually quite high, it has led to many brands hastily joining this segment of portable chargers. As a result, the quality of portable car jumpers isn’t as good as you might think.
That’s why we’re reviewing this RAVPower 8,000mAh Element Series Portable car jump starter.
It’s from a brand that is quite well-known on the market and therefore we think this is a good option for those looking for a reliable and well-built portable charger that they can use to jump-start their vehicle and at the same time, this power bank has a little extra for those that own Quick Charge compatible devices.
This portable car jumper has a good amount of power, but it’s definitely not the highest that you can get with a portable charger that can jump-start your car. However, the capacity of this charger is what contributes to the smaller and more portable side of it as it has the 8,000mAh power capacity.
When it comes to the conversion rate of this power bank, it’s going to depend on how you use it. The charger has only a single USB port and it features Quick Charge, therefore, it can charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones at their max charging speed.
Firstly though, we’re going to calculate how much regular output capacity you’re going to get with this charger.
3.7 x 8,000 = 29,600 / 5 = 5,920
Most of the time when you’re charging just regular devices (smartphones that are not compatible with Quick Charge), you’re going to have about 5,900mAh of power capacity available to charge your phone.
However, if you’re charging a smartphone that uses Quick Charge then the conversion of energy will actually be worse and that’s because faster charging is happening. As a result, you’re likely going to get an output capacity of 4,000mAh for Quick Charge compatible devices.
To sum it up, you’re likely going to get about two full charges for regular charging devices, and Quick Charge devices are likely only going to be able to get about a single charge or 1.5 full charges.
