30 Caliber Power Can
Lately I have been picking up various accessories for my recently completed power can, and one was a dedicated USB charging cable as seen in this photo, and here you see it plugged in to the power can, and the other end is plugged in to the keyfob for my truck charging the lithium-ion battery built-in to it.
This USB cable came with a selection of extra tips that may be switched out depending on the device that you wish to charge.
Also plugged in to the power can through the powerpole outlet up top, is my 3 amp USB charger that is being used to charge the battery of my Blackberry smartphone.
The other device plugged in to the USB port on the right side of my power can, is the LED strip light that is illuminating my 30 Caliber Power Can.
I should add that this 12AH power pack was designed around all the requirements of my ham radio devices, and it will power my Yaesu 817 for several days in a back-country setting.
Still, it is more than capable of providing 12 volt power no-matter the need as seen in this photo, including all-night-reading in your tent of that new antenna book you cannot put down.
