Gear Scout: Antigravity Batteries XP-1 PPS

The concept of a pocket-sized jump starter sounded too good to be true, but that’s exactly what I was introduced to on a recent trip when our LR3’s battery died from too much accessory charging. Powered by a lithium polymer battery, the little 6 x 2.8 x 1 inch Personal Power Supply weighs in at a mere 14 ounces, provides power for charging devices, and can handle the power needed for multiple jump starts. Built into the main unit is a 200-amp (400-amp surge) jump start port, standard 12-volt port for charging accessories, 19-volt port for charging most laptops, and a 5-volt USB port capable of charging a hungry iPad. For convenience, a flashlight is also built-in, as well as a lighted battery capacity indicator. Included with the PPS is a multitude of adapters for various devices, a 120VAC home charger, a 12-volt car charger, and a carry case to keep everything organized.

The XP-1 PPS retails for $160. Find this and other fine adventure accessories at Dirty Parts.
