What experts liked
Has a 6,000 mah battery that is capable of charging most devices within 2 hours.

The Jackery Bar features one USB output that can supply 2.1 amp of power. This allows both smartphones and tablets to charge at full speed.
- Technically Well
The USB charging port is capable of charging at 5V/2.1A speeds. It’s a great charging speed for a power bank of its stature because whatever device is connected to the power will be charging at or near its max speed.

One design flaw of the Jackery Bar however is that the input port and output port are lined up very close together. This can make it a bit harder to have both cables in the powerbank at the same time, especially when you have a slightly bulkier USB cable.
- Portable Wise
It a great compact power bank and arguably the best slim power bank on the market. It’s nice and light and will easily fit into your pocket or purse when you’re out and about.
- Universal Traveller
What experts didn't like
On/off is sensitive and easy to turn on by accident, causing battery drain.
- BestReviews
However, those oddly placed USB ports that we talked about before might cause you even more problems. Structurally speaking, the only issue we found was the classic “USB port falls into the case” issue.

There are no Quick Charge capabilities included in the Jackery Bar.
- Technically Well
It would be better to have the side panels depressed into the power bank so that way, the side panels are less susceptible to be damaged because then there aren’t really side panels.

Another cool extra by jackery is that they have a specialized app you can download on your phone. This app monitors your battery usage, estimates at what times your battery will drain, and reminds you when to charge the device
