Gear Review: Scosche GoBat 12000

What is it?

Scosche GoBat 12000 USB Battery Pack

What sets it apart?

The USB battery pack is a rugged portable backup battery for charging your device in the outdoors. It's extremely rugged, with an IP68 waterproof/dustproof and Military Spec 810G Drop/Shock construction. The charger will put a charge on your phone for up to six times.

How do I use it?

Dropping, kicking, throwing, even running it over with Jeeps in Moab, Utah, the company has put this charger to the test. They have yet to find an everyday scenario that may damage the GoBat 12000. IP68 waterproof/dustproof is another notable feature for this charger. With the watertight flap, this battery is protected from dust ingress and long-time water immersion up to 3 meters.

How much?

Angler’s insight:

In today's rapidly advancing technological age, keeping your phones, tablets or whatever full of juice is important when spending extended periods of time on the water or in the woods. If the service is weak, your phone's battery will die quickly. Portable chargers are not a new thing, but ones that are durable and built for the outdoor enthusiast are not as readily available. The GoBat is badass, plain and simple. It'll handle the daily abuse anglers are known to dish out, and it'll continually keep a charge on your phone.
