Pearl’s Revolt ZX-3000-675 portable car jump starter can not only start a car when your battery is dead, but also charge smartphones and other devices. Thanks to its compact design, the jump starter can be used as a power bank. The jump starter and power bank also comes with Power Delivery (PD) and a Quick Charge function in version 3.0. PD makes it possible to charge end devices quickly without damaging them.
The intelligent charging technology provides the devices with exactly the power they need. At the same time, the jump starter and power bank also support Quick Charge. This also allows devices that do not support PD to be charged quickly. Not all car jump starters and power banks offer these two technologies, so this is an important plus point for the ZX-3000-675. The power bank also supports pass-through technology. You can charge several devices in parallel and charge yourself at the same time. A flashlight is also integrated into the jump starter.
