REVIEW – I have portable power banks everywhere in my life… in every car, my office, multiple rooms in my house, and I give them as gifts to friends and family so that I know I’ll always have access to one when I am with other people! Ha! Anyway, I love these things and have reviewed a bunch here on the Gadgeteer, and just when I thought that there couldn’t be any new features that I haven’t seen, someone goes and proves me wrong.  That was the case with the Jiga Portable Charger, so let’s dig into the new feature I found.

What is it?

A 30,000 mAh portable power bank with 3 inputs and 3 outputs.

What’s in the box?

  • Jiga power bank
  • Micro USB cable
  • User manual

And here are the specifications:

  • Ultra High 30000mAh Capacity (lithium polymer battery)
  • 3 USB Outputs (5V/2A charging speed)
  • Lightning, USB-C, Micro USB Inputs (5V/2A charging speed)
  • Universal Compatibility for devices
  • LED Indicator
  • Built-in LED flashlight
  • Size: 1.38 x 6.10 x 2.99 inches
  • Weight: 1.12 lbs

Features and performance

The Jiga is about the size of a typical power bank that can easily fit into a backpack, purse, or even your pants pocket in a pinch.  It is rounded on all sides and weighs a little over a pound, so it feels really good and solid in the hand.  The outside shell is made of PVC plastic so it appears to me that it will last a long while. There is a button on top that turns the battery on and upon holding it down will turn on the LED flashlight.  I myself have never really had a need for an LED flashlight on a power bank, but more and more of them are coming with this feature, and it works just fine on the Jiga.  I imagine if I were a spelunker I might really like that feature, but I digress.

The Jiga will protect you from overcharging, over-voltage, and short-circuiting.  You can even use the Jiga to charge your devices while it is being recharged, so it has pass-through charging capabilities, which I love.  It also has a huge capacity at 30,000 mAh, so it lasts for literally days before needing to be recharged.  It has 3 output USB-A ports, so you can charge 3 devices at the same time, which is nice.  It also has 3 different input ports to recharge the power bank: USB-C, Lightening, and Micro USB.  That means regardless of what kind of power adapter you have right now, you’ll be able to use it to recharge the Jiga. And because of the 30,000 mAh size, you can even charge tablets and some laptops.

In fact, that now brings me to the feature that seals the deal for me on the Jiga.  Having a large 30,000 mAh battery is great, but recharging it can be a long process to fill that thing back up.  Not so on the Jiga. You can actually use all 3 input ports at the same time to recharge the Jiga much faster!  I have power adapters in all 3 of those formats, so I used all 3 of them to recharge the Jiga and I didn’t have to wait overnight for it to be done, just a few hours.  Nice.

Finally, I should mention what you don’t get with this product.  You won’t get wireless charging.  And you won’t get Quick Charge, or Power Delivery charging speeds.  But for this price point and number of ports, I can live without those features.

What I like

  • 3 power inputs (can be used simultaneously)
  • 3 USB outputs
  • Nice form factor and size
  • Great price

What I would change

  • No wireless charging
  • No Quick Charge or Power Delivery

Final thoughts

To put a nice bow on the whole thing, the Jiga has a price tag of around $33 on Amazon.  I mean, for the capacity you get, the multitude of ports, and the form factor, the Jiga is a no-brainer, as they say.  Heck, grab a few of them at that price and put them under the Christmas tree.  As long as you don’t need wireless charging or QC/PD, you’ll love it!

Price: $32.95
Where to buy: Buy here on Amazon or their website here.

  2. After a power outage here in San Diego, I learned that cable Wi-Fi will continue working if you have an electricity source for the modem and router. Any ideas on a long lasting power source for things that normally plug into the wall?

    1. CM,

      There are lots of products now out there that do what I am getting ready to show you. I did a review a couple of years ago on the Chargetech PLUG Pro portable power supply. It has 2 regular power outlets on it, as well as USB connections, so that you can charge just about anything, including computers, coffee pots, projectors, TVs, etc. I use this device constantly and love it. Maybe it will help you: https://the-gadgeteer.com/2018/01/01/chargetech-plug-pro-portable-power-supply-review/

      1. Mine arrived without power cords or instruction booklet. Amazon kindly sent me cords but I have no clue how to charge etc without directions. At 83 I’m just not tech knowledgeable. Is there online help of what to plug in where? Thank you

        1. Sharon, that is disappointing for sure. I subscribe to the manufacturers email newsletter and there is an email address listed at the bottom that you could try reaching out to. [email protected]. See if that person can send you the instruction booklet by email.

    2. Hi Steve,

      Would you know of any other makes with similar specs, but does include the ‘quick charge’ option.

      Happy to lose the torch and one of the USB imports.


      1. Mark, I did a quick search on Amazon to see if anything new has popped up, and I see one from Aukey that is similar in price and close to the same features, but not exactly. There is another from a company called Romoss that has almost the same specs and price and has QC, but I am not familiar with that company. So I can’t find anything yet in the price range with as many varied ports as the Jiga. And it seems you can’t escape the flashlight anymore. Even the cheap ones hanging up in the gas stations have them!

        1. Thanks for the info Steve, I did find another which looks to have all the features I’m after…
          Charmast 26800mAh Ultra Slim Quick Charge PD Power Bank.
          Priced at £35.93 on their website, but looks to be selling elsewhere (When in stock!) at around £29.99
          I don’t know the make but it has some good reviews?

  3. bought jigs says leds supposed stay on during charging but mine do not ,

    auto shutoff takes effect

    Question does it still charge leds off just got it


    1. I have numerous portable batteries like the Jiga and some of my devices have LED charging indicator lights that will turn off after a couple of minutes and some that stay on. So some of them I have to press the button on the device to see the status of the charging lights. I no longer have this gadget (gave it to one of my kids) so I can’t confirm this with the Jiga, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case.

  4. Hi, looking for help. I have a Jiga 30000 power bank I bought last May. I charged and traveled from UK to USA to go to sea for 2 months. I turned on the flashlight to show someone how it worked and the pack stopped working. It wont charge and it wont take a charge. It appears completely dead. It only lasted 10 months!
    Any ideas if it can be repaired etc.

    1. Karen, unfortunately I don’t know of anything that can help you. That is disappointing that it has only lasted that long. If there is any consolation, it’s that the price is so low you would be better off anyway just buying another one. Kinda like those crappy ink jet printers that they almost give away. Sorry I can’t help more.
