comparison

Here you can see the difference in size between the Bolt Cyclone battery pack and the Vagabond Mini pack. The Vagabond is not heavy (compared to its predecessor) but the Bolt is very light.

Just started testing the Bolt but so far I am impressed. It’s easy to use and charges very quickly. I drained the charge that came on it and now I will see how long a full charge lasts.

More later.
