Zendure SuperMini Lightning power bank review

REVIEW – One day a few years ago my campus went into lockdown for seven hours.  Nothing happened other than a bit of panic, the local police getting some practice and some very ruined trashcans, but there was a lot of turn taking at the power outlets in the room.  After that experience, I try …

Goal Zero Venture 75 Power Bank review

REVIEW – Since long-distance travel has been off the table for a while now, I’ve been making plans for shorter, closer-to-home trips.

Puleida Portable Power Station review – Definitely portable and powers most things

REVIEW – We’ve been getting quite a few power stations sent to us for review here at The Gadgeteer lately. The Puleida Portable Power Station caught my eye because it was the antithesis of the last power station I reviewed (the massive Bluetti AC200P power station – which is most definitely not very portable).

Jackery Explorer 1500 Portable Power Station review – Absolute power

REVIEW – When the Britisher Lord Acton famously said in the 1800s, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” he obviously wasn’t referring to portable power stations—electricity wasn’t even in homes yet. However, today the opposite is true. Getting absolute power from portable power sources like the Jackery Explorer 1500 Portable Power Station corrupts nothing. …
