I received the Sunjack Lightstick mini just in time for Shot Show 2017. I knew I’d be traveling across the country and I knew Shot Show would have me walking an absolute ton. During both those events, it was critical for my phone to remain charged and I always like having a light on hand.

Sunjack Lightstick Mini to the rescue

The Sunjack Lightstick mini pulls double duty as a lamp and a battery charger. This 2600MAH battery kept my phone charged all day long at Shot. We’d leave for Shot Show at 0700 and be working by 0730 in the media room. Running my phone as a Wifi hotspot to submit work was rough on it, and the Shot Show wifi was simply too stressed to use. Keeping my phone charged was a big priority.

By the time the Show started at 0830 I’d be down to 70 percent, and by noon I was looking at a dead battery. So from 1130 to 1630, I kept my phone(s) charged with the Sunjack Lightstick. Right after Shot I returned back to the world and day job and was pretty much immediately sent to training classes that lasted the day. The same situation arose I needed to keep my phone charged and the SunJack Lightstick mini was there to help.

So as a battery it works pretty damn well. Charging it is also very simple and it blinks to let you know how charged it is by the sequence of blinking blue lights.

As a light

As a lantern, it’s also pretty cool. It has a total of five settings and two different colored lights. The first two settings are white light, one normal, and one incredibly bright. The next setting is a red light, and then two strobing red lights. The first strobe is rapid and the second strobe is slower.
