Recently, a consumer sent in a picture of one of our very own Powerpack 600 products being used. As you can see for yourself, he is making use of all three AC outlets at the same time! And while not currently being used, the jumper cables are definitely present in the photo as well.
Many customers have been asking: how long does the powerpack last? The answer varies, depending on the amount of accessories you're using and how much power they consume. For example, if one were to plug in a television that takes 100 watts to run, the portable power supply would likely last shorter than if you were only charging your cell phone or laptop. Also factor in that this powerpack battery can be drained from its own devices as well, such as the built-in flashlight and radio.
For more information on how long this backup power supply will last, consult your accessories' user manuals to calculate the wattage consumed, and compare it to the power ratings of the Powerpack 600.
And if you, just like our consumer pictured above, are in need of a powerpack battery and charger, then be sure to view our wide range of portable power accessories to handle your emergency power needs. You can also view our video tutorial on the Powerpack 600 below.

If you're from the Tampa Bay area, you may be familiar with the popular news source St. Petersburg Times. Their "Gadget Guy", Jack Rowland, has more than 25 years of experience covering handheld gadgetry, specializing in those that help survival in dangerous hurricane areas (such as Florida, where Hurricane Irene is expected to hit by the end of the week).
Featured among Rowland's list of gizmos is our very own Duracell Powerpack 600. As one article states, "If you're going to stay connected during the storm, you'll need power for your smartphone, tablet computer and other items. The Duracell Powerpack 600 can provide portable power for AC and DC-powered electronics."
The Duracell Powerpack 600 is useful in other dangerous situations as well, such as the earthquake that hit the Eastern United States today. As Rowland states, "...the essential things you typically need are power, light, information, water and food." With the right gadgets in hand, the Duracell Powerpack 600 can help provide the first three of those, especially in today's society when smartphones and computers are prevalent in families.

New backup battery powerpack video tutorials and reviews are available on eBatts.com for their top selling portable power products.
