As long as manufacturers are making devices with batteries, we’ll need extended batteries; and as long as manufacturers are making extended battery packs, we’ll be covering them. It takes a little something extra to pique my interest in a battery anymore (yes, I’m slightly jaded), but the Nomad PowerPlant in American walnut 12,000mAh battery did just that.
I spend a lot of time in the woods chasing white tail deer this time of year. My phone is an important tool while hunting. Be it entertainment, photos, video and hunting apps; it’s always in use. Scosche has released a Realtree collection perfect for my hunts. The goBAT 6000 ($69.99) and flatOUT LED ($19.99) iPhone cable keep me charged.
I’ve got a thing for slim batteries that have built-in cables, and while I generally prefer a battery with at least 5000mAh built-in, the PhoneSuit Journey 3500mAh All-in-One Charger has something going for it that none of the others I’ve tried do: Not only does it have built-in Lightning and microUSB charging cables, it also has a built-in AC plug!
InCharge is a successfully funded IndieGoGo project that solves a lot of first-world problems us gadgets users have: Not having a cable to charge our devices at all times.
It seems like there’s a new battery pack released every week, and as a reviewer it is easy for me to become jaded — thinking I’ve seen it all. You really need to bring something special to the table if you want to wow me, and that’s exactly what the Techlink Recharge 5000 has done.
Every once in awhile I find myself in a dilemma when reviewing product. Take the new offGRID battery case from Incipio, for example. We recently received a unit for review for the Samsung Galaxy S6 device. I have no problem with the product whatsoever and found it to work just fine – my issue is with the product name.
This is going to sound like a total #firstworldproblem (because it is), but one of the issues I run into when I switch between my iPhone 6+ and Huawei Mate S is that without bringing along a spare microUSB cable, many of the smaller battery packs that I own won’t work.
BlueLounge has done it again with the Aaden USB powered charger for charging rechargeable batteries from your laptop or other USB power source. It’s one of those simple accessories you don’t need but, once you have it, you’ll be happy you do. In other words, it’s typical Bluelounge. 🙂 And at just $19.95 it will make a great stocking stuffer.
I like the freedom a battery case can provide–no need to carry a separate power pack, and no need for connecting cables–but using one does add some extra weight and bulk to the already large-ish iPhone 6 Plus. Can 4300mAh and a lovely metallic blue cover make up for it? The PhoneSuit Elite Pro sure tries!
As you already know, I really enjoy Satechi’s products. They all are very well made, and there is nothing different when it comes to their Aluminum Power Strip.
Do you have the ever constant issue of your battery draining on your iPhone? Do you wish there was a better solution than always carrying around that Lightning cable everywhere you go? You might be in luck.
I’ve been on the quest for the perfect backup battery, and now I feel like I’m one step closer to finding what I’ve been looking for: a slim battery with enough power to charge my phone at least twice with no need for extra cables. As I learned on my recent trip to IFA, the CODi PowerBank fits the bill!
Picture a charger that plugs into your car’s DC connector; like any other charger you can plug a USB cable into it to top off your mobile device’s battery. Now picture that same charger out of your car, tucked into a pocket until you need to top off again. That’s what the Nomad Roadtrip can do.
If I’m not careful, the number of cables and chargers by my bedside table can quickly spin out of control. My power strip gets overstuffed, and the various charging cables start to twine together like some kind of electronic rat king. I’ve been working hard to keep things streamlined, and the aLLreLi Dual USB charger is a huge help!
I’ve been on the hunt for a small yet powerful backup battery, one that could fit in my smallest bag, one that had a built-in Lightning cable so that I didn’t have to carry anything extra. I’ve found that and much more in the Just Mobile TopGum Backup Battery.
Greg recently reviewed the Fuse Chicken TITAN, which he called the “toughest Lightning cable on the market”; based on what I’ve experienced with the BOBINE AUTO, I’d say that he’s correct.
A goal of nothing – zip, zilch…zero. Quite ambitious, don’t you think? That is mantra over at GoalZero – getting the world off the grid and relying on absolutely no fossil fuels or infrastructure for electrical sustainability. Recently I got to test a small part of their mission in the form of the Venture 30 Recharger complete with Nomad 7…
I feel like I have an addiction: Battery Chargers. I hadn’t found one that will charge all of my devices collectively at night when I go to bed, or whenever I’m traveling, hold up enough juice to last throughout the day. It’s safe to say that has changed.
Let me just get right to it, I was absolutely skeptical about this product when I first read the press release – a power bank that will jump start your car. Really. I can charge my cellphone OR jump my car if the battery dies. Really. The Gooloo GF01 Jump Starter Power Bank works, folks. Really.
