Nutribullet GO is the latest addition to the Nutribullet blender stable and it also marks two firsts. 1) it is the first cordless, portable blender from Nutribullet and 2) it is the first portable blender to come from a brand I've ever heard of before. Don't believe me? Check out the portable blender section on Amazon. Or, come to that, read our guide to the best portable blenders. I am sure Sboly, Lahoku and Topesct, for instance, are all fine brands, but they sound like they could be Real Madrid's current midfield. 

A portable blender is a great way to make a smoothie or protein shake on the go.  Primarily you would do this at the  gym (protein) or office (smoothie), although Nutribullet, perhaps optimistically, suggests it might also be 'perfect for hiking in the hills.' Mm-hmm. 

Some cynics might say, 'Why not just make a smoothie at home, then take it with you, perhaps in a handy Thermos?' However, pulped fruit and veg starts to turn pretty rapidly. A smoothie taken a few hours after blending, having spent time locked in a bottle at  room temperature, is going to have lost nutritional content and may even start to taste a bit nasty.

Nutribullet Go: features and spec

Nutribullet says: 'The portable and durable blender means a fresh, delicious smoothie or protein shake can be enjoyed anywhere, any time, as an afternoon pick me up, a boost of energy before a work out or a late breakfast on the move.' 

The 70W motor spins the blades at up to 18,000RPM to 'whip up protein shakes and smoothies in a flash'. I don't think you need to be a power-obsessed gear head to realise that 70 Watts is not an awful lot of power, but Nutribullet's blades are usually excellent so it should be enough for soft fruit and protein powder. Just don't expect to make nut butters with this thing.

The 2200mAh battery can be fully charged via USB-C in under 3 hours, and that's sufficient juice for 'up to 20 blending cycles'. So that's a smoothie a day for nearly three weeks, before charging is required! 

Nutribullet GO comes with a Durable 730ml Tritan cup, 'perfectly sized for an individual portion'. The cup is lightweight, hardwearing and BPA-free.

If you're worried about accidentally mincing the contents of your gym bag, or your fingers, worry no longer. NutriBullet assures us that GO won’t switch on unless it’s fully assembled – ie: the lid is securely on – and therefore your digits are safe. There's also a blade protector for the base to keep everything safe on the move.

Blend it like Beckham

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
