Jackery Fit Review: Portable Rechargeable Battery Pack

A fast and powerful backup battery for all your devices.

Jackery Fit Review

Price and Where to Buy Jackery Fit: At the time of writing, the Fit was on sale on Amazon for $24.99.

Pros:

  • Powerful: can fully charge an iPhone 6s up to 4 times
  • Charges quickly
  • Works with any USB device (phones, tablets, etc.)
  • Durable aluminum case
  • Power lock can put the device on standby for up to six months

Cons:

  • Big power means a big size: the Fit is larger than other chargers we’ve seen (3.9×2.5×0.8″)

How Jackery Fit Rates:

      • Usefulness: 10/10. Heading on a long flight or into the woods for an extended camping trip? Pack the Fit and you’re bringing along over 200 extra hours of power
      • Value: 10/10. The sale price is a great deal for this much power
      • Portability: 7/10. The Fit is still pocket-sized, but it’s bigger than other (less powerful) chargers
      • Cool Factor: 10/10. This charger comes in fun colors

Final Verdict: If you’re more concerned about power than size, the Jackery Fit is a great, inexpensive choice to keep all your gadgets going.
