Product Review: The Athena Portable Electric Charger from Uncharted Supply Co.
In the ever changing world we live in, it’s good to be prepared. Whether that’s paddling downriver, skiing in the backcountry, or taking a road trip. The Athena from Uncharted Supply Co. is a compact battery pack which is a must have for any vehicle.
The Athena is compact and portable, perfect for storing in any vehicle, large or small. The case dimensions are 9" x 5" x 3.5". It comes in a simple black carrying case which fits all the accessories which come with it.

The Athena is easy to use. It has a four dot indicator light to note the power status of the system. The Athena has two USB output plugs, flashlight, Micro USB input. It can fully charge an iphone from 0% to 100% four-five times.
PaddleXaminer tested The Athena this summer.
The user manual is short, I recommend reviewing it before using the Athena to ensure you complete the steps in the correct sequence. I really like the compact size of the battery pack. The carrying case is great to store all the parts. It has fewer accessories than it’s bigger brother the Zeus, which makes it easier to store all the parts. The Athena is slightly less powerful than the Zeus, but still packs enough punch to charge your cell phone four times, jump-start your car, or a new acquaintance’s car to earn karma points.
I was coming out of the grocery store in Silverthorne, Colorado and noticed someone with their vehicle hoodup. I asked if everything was ok, they said they think their car battery is dead. “I can help with that, give me a minute.” I dropped off my groceries in my car, and grabbed the Athena. The person looked at me skeptically as I put on the clamps. “Go ahead and start it up.” I said. They turned the key, and after a couple cranks, their vehicle started up!
The Athena is a key piece of equipment for any vehicle because you never know when you’ll need it.
