Our take on the PowerAll PBJS12000-R

by Jon Paulette

One device to charge them all  

Ah, the joy of travel. Seeing new places, trying new things, realizing you forgot to pack the charger for the device you need to use right this very second…. What you need is a powerful, portable power pack that can charge your smartphone, your tablet, your camera, your gaming system – and even start your car. What you need is a PowerAll.

All adapters included

This compact device comes with an assortment of adapter plugs, so you can charge a variety of electronic gear without having to stuff a multitude of chargers into your suitcase. Instead, you can rely on the PowerAll's collection of iPhone, Sony/Ericsson, Samsung, LG, Nokia, PSP, micro USB and mini USB adapters. It also comes with a USB adapter cable, along with the AC/DC and 12-volt cables you'll need to keep the PowerAll fully charged at home or on the road.

Start your car, too

The PowerAll also has the juice to start the most important device for travelling – your car. A dead battery can ruin your whole day, but a fully charged PowerAll can safely jump start your car and get you back on the road. Just plug the jumper cables into the dedicated outlet, put the clamps on your battery, and crank the engine. The PowerAll delivers more starting power than some purpose-built jump starters, plus it's not as bulky, heavy, and hard to use. It also includes reverse polarity protection, so you're still safe if you accidentally mix up the red and black cables.

Built-in LED light

As if charging electronic devices and jump starting cars weren't enough, the PowerAll also sports an integrated flash light. If you forget to change the batteries in your "car" flashlight (Which we all do from time to time...), it's good to know you have a backup that can be used as either a continuous torch light or as an emergency “SOS” flashing signal light. And with 3-6 months standby time, the PowerAll will be there when you need it.

Features

All-in-One PowerBank, Jump Start, and LED Flashlight: The PowerAll is a powerful compact and convenient "charge-everything" device that fits inside your pocket or glove compartment of your vehicle. Never worry about your smartphone or tablet running low on battery ever again. If your car won't start, you don't have to call a tow truck service for assistance. If you enjoy the outdoors you don't need to bring an additional flashlight. The PowerAll is the only thing you need to solve all of these problems. The PowerAll has a battery life of 500 cycles.

Dual USB Charging Ports: A great travel companion that you can take with you on the go to charge all of your portable electronic devices, such as smartphones, tablets, cameras, camcorders, GPS unit, MP3 players, wireless headphones, and portable gaming systems. It's high-capacity 12,000 mAh Lithium battery is equipped with two 5V/2.1A USB (type-A) ports that can charge two separate devices fast and simultaneously. There is one main USB adapter cable with eight different adapter plugs that will fit most major portable electronic devices. On a full-charge, it can easily charge your smartphone up to 6-8x before ever needing to be recharged. Once devices are fully charged it will go into sleep mode to preserve the battery.

Car Jump Starter: The PowerAll is also a powerful 400A Peak Amp battery jump starter and comes with a pair of heavy-duty jump start cables that easily plug into the socket on the device to allow you to jump start your vehicle. Use the PowerAll with the included jumper cables to start your car battery in a matter of seconds. Keep it in the glove box at all times and you can use it multiple times. And thanks to its 3 month standby time, you'll have peace of mind knowing that when you need it most it'll be ready. When fully charged at 100% battery capacity, it can be used to jump start your car battery up to 20x before needing to recharge again. Recommended vehicle engine displacements for jump starting:

Fuel Type Displacement
Gasoline 4.0
Petrol
Diesel 3.0
Note: Disconnect the jumper cables from the battery or the PowerAll device immediately within 10 seconds after the vehicle engine has started to avoid accidental overheating and any possible damage to the PowerAll.

LED Flashlight: Whether you're working under the hood, or outdoors camping you'll be glad to have this ultra-bright LED flashlight handy. It has two illumination modes; Constant On and SOS Signal Light for emergency help. If you're outdoors camping and find yourself in an emergency situation you can use the SOS signal light flash to attract attention. Once activated the SOS signal flash will stay on continuously for up to 120 hours on a full charge. It can put out 86 lumens of light power up to 300'. The LED flashlight has a lifespan of 100,000 hours.

AC/DC Charging:  The PowerAll comes with AC and DC chargers for when you need to recharge the PowerAll at home or on the road. There is an AC power adapter which plugs into a standard household AC wall outlet for charging in the home or office. There is also a 12-volt/cigarette lighter adapter for charging the PowerAll inside your vehicle. It takes 2-3 hours to fully charge the PowerAll.

Safety & Protection: It has  over current protection, short circuit protection, overload protection, over voltage protection, and over charge protection all built-in to ensure the safety of all your valuable devices and vehicles.

Battery Capacity LED Indicator: The PowerAll provides five LED indictors which lets you check the remaining battery capacity.

Indicator Lights 5 Off 5 Flashing 1 Solid On 2 Solid On 3 Solid On 4 Solid ON 5 Solid On
Battery Capacity 0% 10% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100%
Note: While the PowerAll is being charged, the indicator lights will flash one by one until it's at maximum charge. All five indicator lights will stay on when the PowerAll is fully charged.

I had to use this product sooner than I expected. The day after recieving the product I had to jump start my truck. 2011 Chevy Avalanche started on first turn when using the Powerall right out of the box. I have also used the flashlight while on an ATV trail campsite. Superb!!! The light is super bright!!!!
Pros:
Great Product. Performs as advertised. Nice compact storage box. I will have to see if it withstands the test of time.
Cons:
None thus far

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used this on the first day I took it to work. Started up a 2014/2015 Dodge Charger R/T off the bat...vehicle came to us with battery issues and sat in the back lot for over a couple weeks. I clipped this bad boy on the battery in the trunk and it lit up everything inside the vehicle like a christmas tree lol. I can't say enough about this product...I'm planning on buying 1 more of these just to keep in my car in case of emergencies. After the recent earthquakes here in socal, this is a big part of my emergency kit now.

Unit also charged up my iphone 4 from 3% to 100% in under 4 hours....simply amazing.

Great item to have!

Written By Joni, New Jersey on Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I think everyone should own this product. Did not want to leave a review until I was able to test out the car battery charger. Used it yesterday on my sister's Subaru Forrester & it WORKED GREAT! So simple to use, and the car immediately turned over. Also used it to charge my Iphone. Figure it will be great to have in case the power goes out (would have come in handy during Superstorm Sandy!). I keep it in my car in the carrying case it came in. As far as customer service from Crutchfield-- could not ask for better. Received it in 1 day! No shipping and no tax.
Pros:
Everything about this item is great. Small compact carrying case -- perfect to keep in car. Extremely easy to use to charge car battery. Can charge Iphone and Ipad at same time. Great Product!!
Cons:
Nothing! I originally thought I would not be able to charge my Ipad Mini since it does not come with an adapter for that-- then I realized all I had to do was use the cord that came with the Ipad!!

Well made, very convenient, decent power.

Written By Planetcat, California on Friday, February 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The PowerAll PBJS12000 is a pretty good unit. It's not cheap, but extremely well made. It comes with just about every type of charger adapter ever made, is very compact, and sits in a nice case. When the PowerAll is fully charged, it will charge my iPad 3 about 50% or my Samsung Droid phone about 3 times. It takes about 6 hours to fully recharge the unit. I even tried jump starting a small 4-cylinder car, and it worked! Won't do larger engines though. Flashlight is bright, too. Very easy to use and the blue status lights accurately tell you how much juice is left in it. The two USB ports make it handy for charging two things at once.
Pros:
Decent charging capabilities, very solid and well-made, fits many different devices, two USB ports allow for charging an extra device, bright flashlight, recharges itself quickly.
Cons:
Maybe price. Not much else.

It really works

Written By WillD, Camarillo, CA on Friday, February 07, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was skeptical at first, but I purchased this after hearing nothing but good reviews on it. I tested it by disconnecting the battery in my Honda CRX, and the PowerAll easily started my car. It was well worth the money to have peace of mind while driving on long road trips through remote areas. It is compact enough to easily fit in the tank bag of my motorcycle.
Pros:
Compact size
