Review: Schumacher XP2260 1200 Peak Amp Instant Portable Power Source

Schumacher XP2260 with fan

The Schumacher XP2260 is a portable battery with several builtin capabilities. I have being using it for a few years, it’s portable enough to bring when camping or to have it inside my car for emergencies. It weights 10.84 kg/23.9 lbs. It has a light, 2 12V outlets, 2 120V AC outlets, 1 usb 5V outlet, and built-in air compressor inflator/deflator with pressure gauge, and jump starter cables.

It’s powerful enough to power small appliances up to 200 Watts (it can hold peaks of 1200 Watts) and 1.7 Amps. I have used it for powering laptops, mobile phones, small fans, inflatable beds, etc.

The built-in compressor also comes very handy to inflate tires when needed. I also have used it to inflate and deflate a boat few times.

It takes a little long to fill this battery, around a day, but it lasts really long, months, to go from 100% to 0% capacity with regular usage. I had never used the jump starting capabilities of this device but it’s there in case I ever need it.

Overall, I recommend this product if you are looking for a portable battery that can power regular devices and have air compressor always near you. It takes some space in the trunk but it pays off in functionality, and one day can be a life saver jump start for the car.
