If working from home is feeling constricting, we’ve got just the thing to free you up. It’s the HALO Bolt 58830 battery bank, and it’ll juice up your laptop so you’re not always tethered to a wall outlet. Oh, and it can also jumpstart your car!

The genius gadget is on sale for just $100, or $20 off at Amazon.


Thanks to two USB-A ports and a standard Type-B power outlet, the HALO Bolt 58830 portable battery bank will charge your laptop so you can freely move from room to room. This really comes in handy—especially if your laptop battery tends to run out quickly.

The battery bank can power up phones and tablets, too. And since it’s just under 3 pounds, it’s not only great for the home—it makes a perfect road trip companion.

“Charged it for a three-day camping trip,” explained a five-star Amazon reviewer. “Four hours of light use, six phone charges, a 10-minute charge for a Chromebook and a jumpstart later, and it remains at 50 percent battery. I was so glad I brought it camping. If I didn’t, my family and I would’ve been stranded in the wilderness with no cellular connection, or car to drive home. SAVED MY FAMILY.”

Raw power

The portable charger can also jumpstart boats, motorcycles and lawnmowers — thanks to its 57,720 mWh (megawatt-hour) of power. This means you can juice up a car up to 217 times before the battery needs a re-charge. Impressive.

“I used this for a conference to ensure I had power on my electronics,” says a fan. “I powered a laptop, my Samsung Galaxy S8 and my Samsung Galaxy Tablet all day on one charge. I would recommend this for anyone traveling, in a lot of meetings or just outside enjoying the weather. Great power; long-lasting.”

Bottom line

This HALO Bolt 58830 battery bank is sure to make working from home a lot less stressful. It’s so small (about the size of a book) that you can carry it around and also keep it in your car for an emergency. It even comes with a built-in LED flood light.

“Wow! Thank you for saving me so much trouble! I have used this for recent power outages — powers a laptop great, as well as a phone,” added another five-star reviewer. “But most of all, it works perfectly to jumpstart a car. I will always keep one of these in my car from now on. It’s small enough to hide under the seat, and it is about a 1,000 times easier than finding a friend with a car to jump you and figuring out both batteries and keeping a long cord.”

The gizmo comes in various colors: gold, grey, rose gold and wood grain — all 100 bucks each!
