[Amazon.ca] Belkin Travel Rock Star $17.99

If you haven't heard of the Travel Rock Star before, it's a pretty neat accessory. Not the best in each category, but combined can be pretty handy!

Belkin Travel Rockstar
Power up and stay charged wherever you go with the Belkin Travel Rockstar. With a battery charger for USB devices, a dual AC outlet, and surge protection, the Rockstar offers three tools in one.

Whether you're overseas, on a plane, or even camping, the Travel RockStar allows you to charge your smartphones, tablets, and other USB devices with its mobile battery pack. The dual outlet lets you plug in two devices from a single AC source, and its built-in surge protection means your devices are safe while powering up.

Travel Rockstar
At a Glance:
  • Charge two devices from a single AC outlet.
  • Universal USB Port
  • 3000 mAh battery pack for USB charging.
  • Surge protection rated at 615 joules safeguards your devices.
  • Compact design with collapsible AC prongs.
  • $75,000 Connected Equipment Warranty.

Good find, it's nice that it has the battery pack right on it! Thanks, OP! :)

I bought one, it's awesome.

The negative reviews seem to be from people who think the 120v pronged plugs would be powered by the onboard battery. That's not what this does.

Think of it as a USB charger and a portable surge protector all in one. Super handy for hotels or anywhere the circuitry might be suspect

Thanks OP

Didn't really need another potable battery pack ... but at least there is more of a chance we'll actually have this one charged when we need it.
I'd rather be outdoors camping, kayaking, and mountain biking ...

Is it 220/240V compatible? Doesn't seem to state that anywhere on the page.

I wouldn't use this as a daily driver as it's 3000mAh with a footprint closer to 20000mAh. Unless I absolutely need a surge protector at all times, a dedicated power bank makes more sense, with perhaps a small wall charger.

While I don't have this particular unit, I do have the 3 port power bar that this is based off. It's rated for 120V only. Makes sense since it's only using NA style plugs.

With that said, I've used it in the UK (with plug adapter) with devices that support 220-240V and didn't have any problems. I'm not electrician though so I don't know what the repercussions are of doing this.

not really a "Travel RockStar" if it only takes 120v and NA plug standard

The Anker Powercore Fusion is a much better product if you don't need the surge protection.

+ 5000mAH vs 3000mAH, 3000mAH for the Belkin is not very useful.
+ 110V-240V internationa capability for the Anker vs Belkin.
+ 2 USB port for the Anker vs Belkin.

Same, I also took the original 3 port power bar to Japan, Thailand and Indonesia.
