The SMARTECH Power Kit is a compact power bank that has been designed to serve as a charger for digital devices and small appliances, a vehicle jump-starter and a powerful air pump in one. Each one is also equipped with a flashlight that can emit either a steady beam, a flashing beam or an SOS pattern of illumination if you're in trouble. This kit is smaller than a standard backpack, even while it's in its carrying case, so you'll be able to store it almost anywhere in your home or car.
The cost of SMARTECH Power Kit is $119.97 and the shipping is FREE!

Each of these power banks contains a lithium-ion battery with 12, 000 milliamps of power. These batteries will last for up to a year without being recharged. However, they can be recharged up to 1, 000 times and can go from being dead to fully charged in seven hours. You should keep in mind that for optimum performance, it's best if you charge your battery every three months.
Every SMARTECH Power Kit has two USB ports and a 12-volt power source to be used for charging purposes. You may want to use the 12-volt source in order to charge small appliances while you're camping, in order to give yourself some of the comforts of home. On the other hand, the USB ports are ideal for charging digital devices such as smartphones and tablets.
A vehicle jump-starter, along with two battery clamps, is also included in each one of these kits. These will help prevent you from finding yourself stranded if your car's battery dies. Aside from cars, these accessories will start up motorcycles, SUVs, trucks, vans, boats, and RVs as long as the engine of each vehicle is less than 5.5 liters in size. As a guide, the jump-starter will beep at you if you put a battery cable on upside-down. With a fully charged battery, you'll be able to use it up to 60 times without it losing its effectiveness.
After you plug the powerful, hand-held 150 PSI air pump that comes in each kit into a 12-volt power source, you'll be able to use it to inflate things like pool toys and soccer balls. It'll also come in handy if you need to inflate a flat tire on your motorized vehicle or bicycle. This pump comes with three adapter pins for inflatables and is fitted with an LED light to help you see what you're doing.
This kit has a component known as circuitry protection that'll stop any part of the kit from sparking or shocking you as you use it.
While you use your SMARTECH Power Kit, you'll be able to read its LCD digital display with clear, large numbers (black on a light blue background) so you'll always know what the machine's up to. Each hand-held air pump also has a similar digital display that will enable you to set the level of pressure you want the object you're filling with air to be inflated to. As the object inflates, you'll be able to see the number increase on this digital display.
When you're not using any part of this power kit, you'll be able to put everything in the included black carrying case and store it in your home or vehicle. While the zip-open case is made of fabric, as opposed to a more durable material like metal, it will still protect the kit from many bumps, bangs, and scratches as you drive along. Furthermore, keeping all components of this kit in the case will reduce the chances that you'll lose any small parts, like the battery clamps.
This power kit has a variety of functions that will assist you if you find yourself in an emergency. It'll inflate a tire if it goes flat, start your car if your battery dies while you're driving, and enable you to charge a dead phone to call for more help you need it. If you ever need to alert the attention of passing motorists, you'll also be able to turn on the flashlight and set it to SOS mode in order to indicate potential danger.
The SMARTECH Power Kit will make a good gift for virtually anyone who drives, especially new drivers or people who live in rural areas who may be more concerned than others about being stranded. Even if someone doesn't drive, they'll likely appreciate getting one of these kits anyway, if they commonly inflate small objects or charge digital devices. One kit can also be moved from vehicle to vehicle if you decide to give one to an entire family or household.
One of these power kits will start all engines that are up to 5.5 liters in capacity, but some engines these days are larger than that. If you've got a super-powerful engine, such as a diesel engine, you'll have to deal with the fact that one of these kits may not be able to restart your car if it dies. The same goes if you've got a vehicle that has more than one battery—your kit may only be able to charge one.
Like it or not, to charge the lithium-ion battery in each of these power kits, you'll have to use your own electricity source. Depending on how often you charge the battery, you may exchange the safety that comes with having one of these kits for a larger electricity bill.
It's best not to let the level of charge in your kit's battery sink too low since the functions of the kit will be more effective if the battery's fully charged. More specifically, you'll be able to inflate up to five vehicle tires with a fully charged battery, but you probably won't be able to do five with a partially charged battery. With a fully charged battery, you can also start a stalled vehicle up to 60 times, but likely won't be able to start it that many times with a battery that's not fully charged. Making sure that you charge the battery every three months is a good idea, but charging it more often than that is completely acceptable, especially if you use your kit a lot.
To optimize the life of your battery, you must avoid storing your SMARTECH Power Kit somewhere where the temperature may fall below the freezing point. Without being stored at a freezing temperature, your battery may maintain a single charge for a year, but if you do store it at a freezing temperature, it may not. As a result, if it's going to be a cold night, you should bring your kit into your warm home instead of leaving it in a vehicle.

I was wondering if it could run a coffee pot every day for 6 days of camping without charging.

It's not possible for 100% of buyers to rate it 5 stars.
This makes me skeptical.
