If you like to be outdoors, be it spending lazy days on the lake, at the beach, or camping with family and friends, we all need a way to keep our gadgets charged up and working. MyCharge has a slick new charger that is extremely portable yet packs in a large 13400 mAh battery called the AdventureUltra. It’s sized to take with you and can power all manner of devices. In fact, it can charge multiple devices at one time.
The AdventureUltra is small enough that you can drop it in a backpack for camping or a beach bag for topping off your gadgets and hardly know it’s in there. The caveat is for backpackers who count every ounce, it may seem heavy at 1.05 pounds.
There is plenty of connectivity for your devices with a 3.0A USB-C port, and dual USB-A ports with 2.4A each. That means you could juice up three gadgets at the same time. Then you have a 110V AC port with 45W of power. This means you can run all sorts of devices like a small TV, or more likely use it to charge your laptop if it’s not a big power glutton. My laptop slurps more than 45W of power, so I didn’t get to try that.
What I did do was charge this thing up and take it with me on a trip to Florida during the summer. This was the perfect device for keeping everyone’s smartphone charged up while on the road no matter how much we used them. Our data plan ran dry before the AdventureUltra battery did. Once at the beach, I carried the AdventureUltra directly onto the sand and used it to keep smartphones topped off while we listened to music.
To charge the internal battery I plugged it in at night and left it charging overnight, it was ready to roll again each morning. It has a small LCD screen that shows you how much power is left in the big battery. The USB ports on the device also have a pass-through so you can charge your gadgets as you charge the battery. That means at night all you need is your smartphone USB cable, no need to carry multiple USB wall adapters. The AdventureUltra comes with the charger for its internal battery and a recharge adapter. It sells for $129.99(USD), and is one of the handiest things you can possibly take on road trips or camping.
