If I’m honest, that’s about all you need to know. Portable chargers aren’t something you can write about a great deal, but somehow I’ve got to pad this out.
The charger weighs in at 272 g and, although it’s slightly heavier than lesser-capacity batteries on the market, this is still reasonably unnoticeable in your coat pocket. It’s 14.4 x 7.8 x 1.5 cm. The 12000mAh capacity means that, when this is fully charged, it’ll charge a regular smartphone or an iPhone 6s from flat four times.
The charger is a nice silver finish and it’s curved, feeling comfortable in the hand and free of any sharp edges. What you don’t get in the box is a Lightning cable. This isn’t too much of a problem if you’ve got an Android device and lots of cables, but if you’ve got an iPhone or iPad you’ll perhaps be a little disappointed that there’s no cable in the box.
But wait! We have a deal!

The good thing about this particular power bank is that you, as an iPhone user, can top it up using your iPhone charger. Not only that, but because there’s two outputs you can easily charge up your iPhone and iPad at the same time when you’re out and about. Of course, you’ll need to have a couple of cables on hand to do that.
Inside is an LG battery cell and some very clever technology from Lumsing called “Smart Charging Technology”. This opens a line of communication between the charger and the device, meaning that your gadget receives the most suitable current – up to 3.0 amps.
The small button on the top is used to activate the four LEDs you can see in these images. This shows, in 25% blocks, how much charge remains in the power bank.
Overall, it’s a real quality piece. It’s put together well, it has a huge amount of capacity and it’s pretty sleek too. All in all, very good.
