Cobra Electronics JumPack Review

The Cobra JumPack joins the growing range of portable power banks that can charge your gadgets and jump start your car in an emergency.

As well as the Cobra JumPack you get a USB cable to charge phones/tablets or for charging the JumPack itself, jump leads and in car charger so you can charge the JumPack.

Disappointingly there isn’t a case included, a strange decision given this is meant to be stored in car with all the various cables.  This is the first car jump starter I’ve tested that didn’t include some sort of case for easy storage of all the components.

Cobra JumPack

The JumPack contains a 6,000 mAh battery and a small LED torch, a handy feature if you need to jump start a car in the dark.  At this price the LED torch is standard, the 6,000 mAh battery seems a little low in comparison to competitors.

Fortunately for me the car jump starting element has not been needed, so that hasn’t been tested, but as you’ll see in the review video it does a good job of topping up a mobile so at least you’ll be sure to be able to call for help if it’s something other than a flat battery.  It’s only able to charge USB devices, other units I’ve reviewed come with a range of options, for example the ability to charge laptops.

While it’s a nice looking bit of kit, the Cobra JumPack seems very expensive compared to other units on the market, especially with the small battery size and lack of case or charging versatility.
