Gadgets: The cordless blender you didn't know you needed


Published in Science & Technology News

Be Anywhere, Blend Everywhere is how Blendjet 2 describes itself and it couldn't be any more accurate. With great success, Blendjet 2 cuts the cord in the blender world.

The single-serving Blendjet 2 lets you blend on the go with shakes, smoothies, or a mixed adult beverage in about 20 seconds, more or less depending on what you are making. This is one of those gadgets you think you don't need but once have it, you're hooked.

It's about the size of a large water bottle (9-by-3-inches, 1.34 pounds), holds 16-ounces, and has a built-in carrying strap that helps with portability. Don't expect it to be as powerful as a full-sized AC powered kitchen blender but the 4000mAh internal battery does a great job powering it for about 15 blends after a one-hour charge. BlendJet 2 is water-resistant, including the USB-C charging port.

The jar has measurement markings and on the bottom is a 6-point stainless steel blade. A surprisingly powerful 5 V motor spins 275 times per second. Once it's loaded, operating consists of pressing a button to start and pressing it to stop. The button illuminates when it's on or charging.

My wife took control first for smoothies and was instantly hooked. I wanted to test the portability and it was beyond perfect on a boat (I wasn't the driver) for a frozen margarita.

It's just as easy to clean the Blendjet2 as it is to operate. The self-cleaning system requires water and soap. After a quick blending just rinse it out and it's ready for the next mixture.


Creamy frozen lattes, milkshakes, slushies, baby food, dips, dressings and sauces are other Blendjet recommendations.

Blendjet also has JetPack Ready-to-Blend single-serving smoothies ($2.99), with no refrigeration required. All you need is the cold mixing liquid or ice. Flavor options include banana blueberry, mocha chia, green peach ginger, raspberry dragon fruit, mango matcha, and tropical blue. $49.95, available in 16 vibrant colors

Charging smartphones is a daily chore, often multiple times a day. And for some reason we are all in a rush and even a panic to getting the boost of power.
