The Traveling Artists Best Friend
It can power your laptop for your multimedia presentation, power your dash cam, and even a small power tool for working on your car! Speaking of, not only does it replenish 2 mobile devices simultaneously and efficiently, it can jump-start a cold, dead battery on an SUV as seen in our video below! We truly use it daily. It charges mobile devices faster than from your PC.
So. What About It?!
Frustration. That feeling of helplessness especially after many months of preparation shows up. It somehow became best friends with your device. 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 device a different way? No extension cord from an AC wall outlet, at all? Just the AC adapter from the Halo Bolt to your device. This is what sold us on this product!
How we found this is kinda funny! We came upon this powerhouse portable charger when googling for, get this, "How To Clean Your Car Battery Terminals!" Yep. We were browsing to see if there were any "new" products or gizmo ways to clean car batteries and alas! A Halo Bolt came up in a search on Amazon. The husband and I looked at each other and decided to go down the rabbit trail to inquire more about this object.
After we tossed a coin for which color to choose, we made our purchase and waited like
children at Christmas time for its arrival! Once received, we quickly became friends with it.
Our rose patterned Halo came in a beautiful black box with mini-jumper cables, USB-to-micro USB cable, AC adapter, carrying pouch and quick starter guide. And, it was pretty much fully charged too!
To test its advertised limits, we did try running a hairdryer via the AC outlet and it failed! It would not even “wake up”. THAT is a great built-in SAFETY feature in case little hands get a hold of it! This proves that this Halo model will only allow devices to run at 65 watts or less!
They are permitted on airplanes per the FAA Website. This makes managing your cell phone, digital camera and other mobile devices much easier to maintain when traveling. 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.
To us, it is not too heavy weighing in at a mere 2lbs. A mic stand is much heavier, right? Its size is small enough to fit in your hand, slide easily into a backpack, car glove box, or large purse.
Besides jumping our friends SUV, we have found that 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! During an outdoor event, it effortlessly powered my 14" digital photo frame from Amazon for 4 1/2 hours without a hitch! Thanks to the Halo Bolt, my part in the event went very well!

When plugged into house current, it takes approximately 7 hours to fully charge a dead HALO Bolt. We have discovered that it takes about 2 hours per green bar. That is pretty impressive for the amount of Mwh this bank holds!
