In this article, we take a look at the Einova Ultra Fast Power Bank. We took this power bank on some cold weather camping trips, used it while working remote, and car camping to really put it to the test.

Our Testing Scenario
We have spent an entire spring weekend camping in the Colorado Wilderness. This charger has been rained on, hiked up to over 14,000 feet several times, run through dirt and snow, sat in a very hot car, been in below freezing conditions, and charged several different phones, smartwatches and laptops. We think that if this charge worked for our situations, it will probably work quite well for yours.

Here are the specifications for this charge. Of course, these are important for understanding how many devices, and how much charge your devices.

It charges iphones fast, smartwatches fast, and most laptops fast. The estimates hold true to be able to charge a phone several times, and a laptop just a touch over 1 time depending upon the laptop size. We were happy with how fast it charge phones and small devices. In addition, the device itself takes some time to charge plugged into the wall. We leave it charging overnight, and it is ready to go in the morning.
Ease of Use
This product is extremely easy to use. The power button allows you to turn it on and charge devices while also conveniently showing you how much battery is left with a gorgeous digital readout. Charging devices and the actual charger is as simple as plugging the item in.
This isn’t a heavily durable or waterproof device. While you probably can get away with dropping in, we don’t recommend taking this on backcountry trips. This is an awesome device for car camping or travel, but maybe not for stuffing in your pack for a backpacking trip in the backcountry.
The sleek design makes this fit nicely in many backpack compartments or a laptop case without issue.
Cost / Value
We think this is a great value. You will be able to find cheaper chargers with the same output, but this seems to be a really well built charger. The sleek design makes it really good looking as well. We’d recommend this middle price range as opposed to going for a cheaper device, or a more expensive device. This is right in the great value range.
We highly recommend this charger for traveling or car camping. It is hugely helpful to have the larger battery storage size and easily lasts you a whole weekend. While this isn’t a waterproof or shock proof design, it is perfect for the car camping trip or longer travel trip.
As remote workers often working in places where electricity may not be readily available, this is an awesome device.
