iFrogz GoLite 2600 Battery Is Small, Light, and Bright

Every now and then a small, relatively simple accessory comes along that impresses in a surprising and unexpected way. The iFrogz GoLite 2600 Battery is one such accessory. At under $30 the device is both an external charger and a flashlight. It works well as both and is a great combination worthy of a spot in your gear bag.The battery even comes in four different colors. I would normally go with black but was sent one of the red units for review. I love it! Check out all the colors here.

What most surprised me was just how solid the iFrogz GoLite 2600 Battery is. It feels like a slab of metal… In a good way.

Video Review of the iFrogz GoLite 2600 Battery

As I point out in the video, my only complaint about the battery is the three position switch. More than once I turned the charging functionality on when I meant to turn it completely off. That’s not a good thing and I will definitely have to be careful lest I inadvertently find myself without the external charge I was depending upon.


  • Rechargeable: The GoLite features a rechargeable 2600mAh or 7800mAh lithium-ion battery.
  • Bright: A built-in LED flashlight is ideal for low-light situations.
  • Convenient: Its USB charging is perfect for most devices.
  • Compact: Its slim design is easy to pack and store.

This is a fantastic little accessory  that makes a great gift and should be a popular stocking stuffer for the tech-loving person in your life this season.

What I Like: Small; Solid; Bright color; Works well as both a flashlight and an external battery

What Needs Improvement: The three position switch is not ideal and can easily be turned to “charge” rather than “off”
