Jackery Titan S 20100 review: An affordable battery that packs a punch

Throw in an attractive price point and the ability to charge your Nintendo Switch, and you're set.

Note: The following is part of our roundup of USB-C battery packs. Go there for details on how we tested this device.

The Jackery Titan S 20100 mAh (72.4 Wh) battery pack is listed on Amazon at a respectable $40.

Our test found the efficiency of the Jackery Titan S to be just shy of the 80 percent mark, at 79.54 percent.

On the front of the housing, you’ll find a power button, two USB-A ports, and a USB-C port. There are also two USB-A-out ports, one with Smart Fit tech; the other for QC 2.0 devices. The USB-C port is used to charge devices or the battery pack itself.

Total time to recharge the pack from empty to full was just over five hours using a standard 5V/2A USB wall adapter (not included with the pack).

One benefit of the Jackery Titan S I wasn’t expecting is its ability to charge the Nintendo Switch or a MacBook.

Included in the box is a microUSB cable and a USB-C cable. Both cables are standard USB-A cables, so if you were hoping for a USB-C-to-USB-C cable, you’ll need to find one elsewhere.

On top of the pack you’ll find four indicator lights, signalling how much battery is left in the pack, and giving you a quick reference when the pack itself is charging and how much it has left to go.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
