HALO ACDC BOLT 58830MwH REVIEW
If you are a puppeteer looking for a way to spin that Christmas tree, run a fan for your set drapes, or power your laptop for your multimedia presentation, then stop right here and let us tell you about the Halo Bolt power charger! It has been such a blessing to us!
Why Should I Buy It?
Frustration. That feeling of helplessness especially after many months of preparation shows up. It somehow became best friends with your camera. You know, the one staring motionless into space. Sitting there ignoring you and your plea to just, "Work!" Sure, you can make a last ditch effort and gallantly run to your car to use the cigarette lighter USB charger. With, "You are my only hope!" running through your mind your your gut tells you the chances for a full or even 20% charge is zero. Nill. Nada. It is just not going to happen! But you try anyway, right? We all do! But what if you could power your camera a different way? No extension cord from an AC wall outlet, at all? Just the AC adapter and the Halo Bolt.
Hello fellow puppeteer and prop maker/designer! We are delighted to share with you this amazing little powerhouse portable charger that we stumbled upon when googling for, "How To Clean Your Car Battery Terminals!" Yep. We were just browsing to see if there were any "new" products or gizmo ways to clean car batteries and alas! This! A Halo Bolt came up in a search. A "Never heard of it!" thought bubble appeared over our heads as we looked at each other and so we naturally we went down the rabbit trail and inquired more about this object.
After we tossed a coin for which color to choose, we made our purchase. Once received quickly became friends with it. Not only does it replenish 2 mobile devices simultaneously and efficiently, it can jump-start a cold, dead battery on an SUV, too! (see the video above) So, powering small props should not be a problem! Yay!
*** JUST REMEMBER - LARGE AC DEVICES / ITEMS NEED TO BE RATED AT 65 WATTS OR LESS. ***
Also, keep in mind the Halo Bolt battery longevity depends on the power draw from the devices you are using.
The two 5V/2.4A USB hubs, in fact, do allow you to charge multiple devices at once! As for the 120-volt sturdy AC wall outlet, you can amply charge larger devices like laptops or run a typical desk lamp, small fan, book light, and more! To test its advertised limits, we did try running a hair dryer and it failed. No! That is a good thing! It would not even “wake up”. THAT is a great built-in SAFETY feature in case little hands get hold of it!
They are permitted on airplanes per the FAA website which makes managing your cell phone, digital camera, and other mobile devices much easier on your traveling team.
Great for campers or those who live in rural areas and/or locations prone to power outages. The super bright LED flashlight powers up quickly at the push of a button.
