Jackery Bar 6000 Portable Charger Review

Jackery 6000 Review Summary

Jackery portable travel charger bar 6000 mAh is a decent portable charger but is heavier, has lower battery capacity, and charges/get-charged much slower than other competing compact portable chargers in the similar price range. We recommend Anker PowerCore II 6700 or RAVPower 6700 as they deliver better performance, lower weight/size, and offer better value for money.

Pros

  • Fast charges iPhones at twice the speed of Apple charger
  • Charges Android phones from zero to 50% in 50-60 minutes
  • Robust build with Aluminum outer shell
  • Available in two colors – black and an eye-catching orange

Cons

  • Heavier than similar compact power banks
  • Larger than similar capacity portable chargers
  • Battery capacity is not adequate for Android phones and latest iPhones
  • Anker PowerCore II 6700 or RAVPower 6700  offer more battery capacity at lower weight

Jackery 6000 has an input current of 2.1 amp which is lower than RAVPower 6700 ‘s input current of 2.4 amp. Both the power banks have the same maximum output current 2.0 amp. RAV Power comes with a battery capacity of 6700 mAh, quite higher than the Jackery portable charger’s 6000 mAh. The RAV Power power bank weights 4.2 oz (119 grams) which is much lower than the 5.3 oz (150 grams) of Jackery 6000.
