Battery tech has improved so much that the latest crop of portable blenders can easily keep up with plugged-in personal designs. At its current discounted price of $49.95 / £49, the BlendJet 2 is extremely good value, offering on-the-go blitzing power for less than half the price of many designs. At that price you could buy ten of these for the price of our best blender, the Sage The Super Q.

BlendJet 2 features

It’s a compact, reassuringly solid unit for the price, with USB-C charging, a built-in chopping blade and small control button. It has a 16oz (454ml) capacity so is only really suited to single servings. There’s also a screw-top and handle attachment. A full charge of the 4000mAh rechargeable battery takes an hour, and for that you can expect to produce around 15 smoothies, although tougher ingredients will dent that figure.

It’s more than enough though, especially as the blade spins 275 times per second and does a good job with soft fruit smoothies and protein shakes. It’s not very happy with frozen fruits though, taking many cycles to break down a rolled oat, milk and frozen strawberry smoothie for instance.

From a design point of view, it’s basic, but you can choose from 38 different colour options, including prints, patterns and celebrity collaborations. It certainly sets the brand apart, and gives you a chance to be a bit zany, if that’s your thing.

What the BlendJet 2 does really well, however, is smash out a post-workout protein shake or meal replacement smoothie like a serving of Huel Black Editon. Compared to traditional shaking the results are smoother and significantly more enjoyable, but at only 16oz the thirstiest or hungriest amongst us may need a second helping.

Whatever you use the BlendJet 2 for, just remember to press the button for three seconds once your smoothie is blended as this turns the safety  lock on. That eliminates the potential disaster of accidentally pressing the button as you take your first sip.
