I have bought this about a month ago and had plenty of time to try it out. The torch comes nicely packaged in the usual brown Suaoki cardboard box.
Inside you’ll find the following:
– the torch
– a usb cable
– a quick guide
I’ve charged the torch for about 4 hours the first time I used it and this charge lasted me for about 1 week (used every night while walking the dog). I have to admit I have only used it a s a torch, and WOW what a torch this is… it lights up like a lighthouse… to power it on you have to press the button for about 3 seconds and then pushing the button again, the light seems to increase in intensity and power, and after 3 clicks goes into what I think is a SOS mode.
I haven’t used the USB charging yet, but it should work without any issues.
The torch also has a survival hammer at one end, which as far as I can tell is similar to what firemen and rescue personnel use to break glass in case of emergencies. Didn’t get to try it yet, but it’s good to know I have one.
The torch now stays fully charged in my car ready for any sort of emergency.

I won this as part of a Facebook competition that Suaoki had on their page. I have to say I was very surprised and didn’t quite believe it at first. But a day later the item was swiftly delivered by Amazon.
The charger comes neatly packed in a storage box that contains the following items:
1x Battery pack/Jump Starter
1 Pair Battery clamps
1x Car charger
1x AC Power Charger adapter
1x User manual
All these fit nicely in a box as big as a 10″ tablet (thicker of course) 🙂
The battery pack is a bit on the large side for my taste, I have seen bigger capacity battery packs in smaller cases, but I think the fact that you can use it to jump start a car accounts for the bulky size.
I have charged the battery fully with the AC adapter, I think it took about 2 hours to fully charge, but I have to say it wasn’t completely empty out of the box. I have used it all this week, charged my wife’s phone (a Nexus 4) once from 1%; and charged my Xiaomi Mi 4c twice from about 40 to 60%-70%. The battery pack still shows as full 🙂
I haven’t tried the jump starting function and to be honest hope to never have to… but it should work as per the instructions in the manual.
The front of the battery has a pretty strong light (LED I think) which can come in handy.
So, to finalize, this seems to be a sturdy and handy battery pack with the added advantage of a jump starter built – in.
