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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

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.
