What are the Features of the PowerAll 12000R?

  • Portable battery charger with charging adapters for all major electronic devices
  • Compact car jump starter that can jump start your car 20 times on a full charge
  • Ultra-bright LED flash light, strobe light, and SOS signal light that lasts 120 hours

This charger/jump starter is different than any other product we have reviewed.  Normally your battery jump starter is exclusively for use on passenger and/or commercial vehicles.  What sets this unit apart is the ability to charge almost all of your electronic devices.  It is an ingenious little device.

Although it is quite small and weighs only 3 pounds, it has the ability to jump start a smaller passenger vehicle up to 20 times.  I don’t know about you, but I would get the hint that I need a new battery a little sooner than that but it is nice to know the power is there.

It also comes with flashlight and a strobe light in case disco comes back.  Really though, the SOS light with a life of up to 120 hours makes this a great tagalong for hiking and camping trips.

The built-in protection features are an added comfort as well.  You don’t need to worry about over charging or ruining any of your batteries.

What Does The PowerAll Do?

The PowerAll 12000R Car Jump Starter is kind of a do-it-all product.  You can just leave it in your glove compartment in case of emergency.  It will hold a charge almost forever and can charge just about everything you own.  You can also use it to charge your car’s battery.  This is a nice feature if you have a vehicle that sits for long stretches.  There are a couple of minor nits for us to pick.  The battery clamps are the smaller types that can be more difficult to attach and can fall off.  They also give the PowerAll a bit of a low budget look.

The other nit is that the jump start feature is only recommended for 4.0 liter engines and smaller.  As long as all of your vehicles meet this limitation then obviously this is not a problem.

What is the Verdict?

The PowerAll 12000R has some great features and sets new standards for weight and size.  It is also extremely flexible as far as what you can charge with it.  Throw it in your glove compartment and it will be ready when you need it either in the car or off in the wilds.  You want to be aware of it’s minor limitations but outside of that, this is a great little charger.

This is by far the best portable power device I have ever seen!

By MarkMelkins

I was just given the “POWERALL” as a fathers day gift. I have to admit that when I read that this little device could jump-start a car I shook my head in disbelief. I did not hesitate to start plugging in as many random rechargeable devices I could find. Straight out of the box (and before plugging it in to ensure a fully charged unit)I started charging a couple mobile phones and then my old “flip” video camera. The indicator on the “Powerall” still showed I had two bars of charge left on it. I decided to try and jump-start a late 70’s SL360 that had been sitting in the garage since October with a dead battery. I was blown away when it REALLY WORKED! The flash light on this thing is super bright and very low profile. This thing is defiantly going to be used a lot this summer! I am impressed!!! Read more…

I Can’t Believe It Works!


Looking at the pictures is misleading… this thing is even smaller than it seems. It’s tiny. It really does fit easily in a glove box.

It charges USB devices very well, each port can output 2A. This is faster than most external battery packs, especially considering both ports can provide the full 2A each.

But what REALLY amazes me is that this thing really can jump start my car! I disconnected the battery from my 2001 Audi A4 1.8T and hooked up the PowerAll using the included clamps. Lo and behold, the engine started right up! This is absolutely phenomenal! I repeated the experiment 6 times. On the 7th try, the PowerAll no longer had enough juice to get the engine going.

After I recharged the PowerAll, I tried using it on something a little more demanding… my 1998 GMC diesel pickup with a 6.5 litre V8. I *almost* got it going using just the PowerAll, but the glow plug cycle before cranking draws a lot of power so there wasn’t quite enough left to get it turning fast enough. However if the PowerAll was supplementing a weak battery, it would probably have worked just fine.

This is a great item to keep in your car for emergencies, especially in winter. Just remember to keep it charged… the charge only lasts about 3 months, and it won’t do anyone any good if it has no power. Fortunately, it includes a 12 volt cigarette lighter adapter to charge it up right there in the car. But don’t leave it plugged in there unless Read More…
