[Princess Auto] Volcano 2000 Portable Jump Starter - 20800 mAh - $70
- Deal Link:
- Princess Auto
I left a one star review on the PA website so no one else gets duped. It is the 1st time I have seen PA make a mistake like this, they are going to get a ton of returns!
OK, this is a warm and potentially hot-ish deal for a large capacity Jump Starter/Power bank. You would have to search pretty hard for even a 10,000 mAh unit at this price point. I have ordered two, but have NOT actually looked one over yet to give it a full seal of approval. If anyone has one, please chime in on its quality. Searches indicate the Volcano 2000 has good reviews, but the pics from PA and Amazon.com look a bit different. It may be old stock, although that should not matter too much with lithium batteries. While a unit like this could have many uses, I plan to use it as a back up power source on my boat for powering a fish finder, phone and even a trolling motor in a pinch. I figure with 20800mAh I could run my trolling motor at half thrust for 20 to 30 minutes -- enough to get me out of a jam if my outboard fails.
Here are the specs:
Package (L x W x H) 10 x 8.2 x 3.3 in.
Weight 1.9 lbs
Wattage (W) 10
Number of Outlets USB Type-C and DC ports
Battery Type 20800 mAh Lithium
Type Volcano 2000
Amperage Rating (A) 2000 Peak
Voltage Rating (V DC) 12
The USB C is in and out, so you have some good charging options. If you have a solar panel and charge controller with a usb port, it should be easy to keep one of these topped up in many outdoor situations.
I get delivery on Monday and will have a better idea of just what kind of deal this really is. Keep that in mind before getting your claws out...
