Bolt Power® K3 Mini Portable 400 Amp Car Jump StarterNow comes the Bolt Power® K3 Mini Portable 400 Amp Car Jump Starter and power pack.  In spite of our uncanny ability to keep one foot planted firmly in the past, time relentlessly marches on.  What in the world does that mean?  Products continue to evolve, shrink and improve whether we notice it or not.  This review of the Bolt K3 Mini is a perfect example of that.  We will try to give you our unbiased opinion of this incredibly powerful little powerpack as well as offer our verdict.

What Are The Features Of The Bolt K3 Emergency Auto Jump Starter?

  • 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
  • Built-in protection features: over current protection; short circuit protection; overload protection; over-voltage protection; over-charge protection
  • Portable compact design that will easily fit in your pocket, backpack, or glove box for convenience

Probably the first place to start is size.  What good is a super powerful charging device if it is too big to carry along?  The Bolt Power K3 Portable Jump Starter measures just 7.2 x 1.7 x 3.3 inches and weighs 13.8 ounces.  That is why it is called a mini car jump starter.  You can leave it in your glove compartment for an emergency or use it to charge a tablet and/ or phone while traveling.

You can also throw it in a backpack and be assured that your devices will have enough battery to last for a day or week hike.  You never know when you will have an emergency in back country and need to call or use the included flashlight to signal.  There is also an SOS signal light that lasts up to 120 hours.  This could be a life saver.

There are also several protection features built in.  You have over current, short circuit, overload, over charge and reverse polarity protection built in.  As far as we are concerned, the more built in features that are designed to protect us from ourselves is a bonus.

The device can fully charge your cell phone, tablet, or reader within an hour, and it actually comes with connector accessories for an iPhone 4, an iPhone 5, as well as a Micro USB cable, a Mini USB cable, and a PSP cable. The battery also comes with an AC to DC wall adapter charger (for charging through a wall outlet) and a DC charger (for charging through the car).
