Taking a trip? Doesn't matter if it's a weekend camping getaway or a cross-country flight; you need a power bank (aka mobile charger).

These things come in all shapes and sizes, but I'm partial to those that have a built-in AC adapter, meaning you can recharge the charger just by plugging it directly into a wall socket.

I've rarely seen that feature on a charger this cheap: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon seller DaYuan-us has the Jiga Pro 15,000-mAh power bank for $16 when you clip the 20%-off coupon and then apply promo code 8QCT8B42 at checkout. It normally sells for $40.

As noted, the standout feature here is the plug. The vast majority of mobile chargers require a separate (and often not included) AC adapter and cord, which just adds clutter to your carry-on.

Speaking of cords, this one has a built-in USB-C cable, another great convenience. If your phone, wireless earbuds or the like has a USB-C charging port, now there's one less cord to bring along.

The Jiga Pro also incorporates a QuickCharge 3.0-compatible Type-A USB port (that's a mouthful, I know, but it's code for "works with everything") and a PowerDelivery (PD) USB-C port. All told, you can charge up to three devices at once.

Icing on the cake: a digital display that shows exactly how much power is remaining.

Although I haven't tested this myself, I've used a lot of similar chargers and have no qualms about recommending it. That said, there are two things to note. First, the Jiga Pro has only a few user reviews (all five stars, for what it's worth). That's because it's relatively new to Amazon, arriving only about a month ago.

Second, the warranty is just 180 days, which is a bit unusual. One year is the standard. But given that any other similarly well-equipped power bank would likely cost you at least double, something's gotta give. In this case, it's the warranty.

What do you think? Are you willing to roll the dice on this? I consider the risk extremely minimal, but I could understand some hesitation.
