4 Reasons why you need to find your VIS
The 6,000 mAh macromolecule polymer, soft pack engineered battery pack is capable of charging your iphone 6 or similar powered smartphones between 3 and 4 times on a single charge. VIS was also built to be used as a 12V appliance charger. [VIS comes with USB splitter able to charge up to 3 devices simultaneously.]
VIS comes with jumper cable attachment and is capable of jump starting your 12V car battery up to 20 times on a single a charge. Attach jumper cables to dead car battery, plug into your VIS and voila you are back on the road!
The high powered 3W, three mode (beam, strobe, sos) flashlight will gladly take care of any unwanted darkness.
The LED strip light operates in red and white light, the red light operates in three modes (beam, strobe, sos) the white light operated in three settings (high, medium, low) use as a mobile lantern or a magnetically fixable stationary light. Plus Emergency Hammer!

VIS - the Multi-Function, Utility Power Bank
Jumper Power Banks was born out of the rapid, revolutionary development in new battery pack technology, catalyzing two brothers to dream up a product that satisfied their ideas for the perfect power bank.
Our inaugural product VIS was named in honour of the Latin word for 'useful power'. We thought it was fitting considering the tremendous utility that has been engineered into this product. VIS was designed to take as much as possible from the 6,000 mAh high output Cobalt B Lithium-Ion battery pack that is fitted inside. The VIS is a powerfully engineered instrument able to solve multiple problems as they may arise on life's long road of adventure.
Our strategic battery and tooling partner in Taiwan Kuan Yu Lu has worked tirelessly over two years in order to develop what we have today: a truly portable multi-function power solution we are proud to call VIS.
Small portable power banks, offer great portability with no utility. Large jump starter's offer jump starters without any portability (or other utility). Where is the balance between portability and utility? Why isn't there a product that continuously finds new ways to reward those who have it? Why not a $60 power bank, a $140 jump starter, $40 flashlight, $30 LED strip light, $20 emergency hammer all in one?

Words from the Founder, Albert Shoihet
My expertise are not in the hard sciences, I have a BA in Sociology but ask any of my friends I majored in adventure.
I believe autonomy and confidence are vital to making people feel good and safe. VIS was designed and built to provide this feeling. Whether you want VIS to put in your son's or daughter's car to keep them out of trouble or keep VIS at house in case of power outages/natural disasters, VIS will be there.
If you are like me and live an active, adventurous lifestyle and want to stretch your technical capabilities on the road, trail, or wherever, VIS will be there; at precisely the moment you need it.
Kickstarter has revolutionized the process entrepreneurs, idea people, and creative people alike go through in order to turn an idea into reality. This community has given us the opportunity to create a multi-function, utility power bank that I know will add tremendous value to everyone who pledges, it has been a companion of mine for a few months now :) I thank you for taking the time to read through our campaign and for being a part of such a great community!

Risks and challenges
We work directly with the manufacturer which gives us confidence in producing the VIS on schedule. However, issues within the manufacturing process do occasionally happen that are unexpected; this would delay our delivery. We believe we will be able to deliver in a timely and efficient manner, and do not foresee any risks and challenges that would cause major delays. Regular communication with our backers will make sure there are no surprises.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
