RAVPower 10000mAh Power Bank – Review

WOoo!!! Another power bank for me to review. I LIVE TO REVIEW POWER BANKS!!! Guess what this one does. Go on, guess! Yes, this will power up from a wall charger or another USB input via the microUSB central “Input port”. You get two microUSB-to-USB cables in the …

Exclusive discount off the ROMOSS Power Bank we reviewed earlier

The lovely people at ROMOSS were so happy with our earlier review of their all-in-one power bank that they’ve sent us ale and a free man shed. Not only that, but there’s also an exclusive 20% voucher code if you want to buy one from Amazon. The portable …

ROMOSS 10000mAh Aluminum power bank – Review

Portable chargers. Yes, there’s lots of them on the market. This one is from ROMOSS and they’ve designed it so that it’s got plenty of capacity whilst still fitting in your trouser pocket. That’s a good thing. There’s 2 output ports and a 10,000mAh capacity. You can charge …

Romoss Sense 6 LED 20,000mAh Portable Charger – Review

Despite clever power-saving features in smartphones, there’s still one fairly standard rule when it comes to a battery. If you want it to last for ages, you’ll need a higher capacity. A higher capacity usually means a fatter, bigger, heavier battery.. and people don’t like that. So people …

Gaming with Android and Windows, Mobile? PGS has an update.

Yes people, I’m learning the Daily Mail-style of click-bait again, in the vein hope that we’ll have enough advertising revenue to pay for the servers this month (sadly, ad-blocking is killing our revenue). OK, long story short. Imagine you want to create a Portable Gaming System. Something running …

Moshi IonSlim 5K Portable Charger – Review

At just 8.5mm, this is as thin as some smartphones. It sits in your pocket and is easy to carry around in your jeans without any unsightly bulges, measuring in at just 13 x 7 x 0.85 cm. Inside the aluminium casing there’s a 5,150mAh battery and it’ll …

Want to charge your phone? Just look in the mirror

Usual introduction to this. You know the story. Smartphone batteries aren’t great. We don’t want fat batteries, but at the same time we don’t want to be running back to a power point to juice the thing up every few minutes. So what are you going to do? …

ThruNite C2 Mini 3400 mAh Portable Charger – Review

For £19.95 on Amazon UK or $19.95 on Amazon US, this isn’t a great deal bigger than the battery inside. Plus, with this particular portable charger, you can actually unscrew the bottom and get at the battery – like an old-school torch / flashlight. Not only that, but …

Askborg ChargeCube 10400mAh Powerbank – Review

We’ve become all too familiar with the terrible battery life of our smartphones. As your phone gets older that battery gets even worse, so that’s where gadgets like this come in. This is the Askborg ChargeCube 10400mAh Powerbank. You can get it for £17.99 from Amazon UK or …

aLLreLi 4-port Travel Wall Adapter – Review

You’re about to go on holiday, you’ve got everything – the sun lotion, the wet wipes (is that just me?) and your gadgets. Wait though, what about those travel adapters you bought? You put them in that “special place” didn’t you? Are they in the bottom of the …

Archeer Solar Charger – Review

Doing a review of a solar charging system at this time of year isn’t perhaps my wisest decision, especially not here in the UK on a cold and wet November day. It’s going to be dark by 4PM, but I’ve got a solar charging device from Archeer. This …

Smartphone + Music Festival = Festival Fuel

It seems that the days of picking up a cheap phone for a festival are long gone. It is a regular site to see folk using portable phone chargers now, to prolong the smartphone goodness and for the selfies with your mates when the headliners are on. You …

Lumsing 13400mAh Portable Charger – Review

I’ve got another portable battery for review. This time it’s the Lumsig Grand Series A1 Plus charger. This costs £18.99 from Amazon or $23.99 on Amazon US. It’s available in this silver shade along with black and gold. Inside is a rather chunky 13,400mAh battery. I say chunky …

Puridea Bluetooth Speaker, Power Bank and Bike light – Review

Yes, I agree with you. That is a weird combination of features. This is indeed a bike light which is also a Bluetooth speaker and … a portable charger for your phone. All those things in one unit isn’t normally something you’ll see wrapped up in one unit, …

Lumsing Glory P1 Mini Portable Charger – Review

Glory, glory. Hallelujah. I had to spell check that last word. Anyhow. We’ve got another battery pack here. This one is a chunky monkey too. Not chunky as in physical size (it’s 123mm long by 69mm wide and 16mm thick. Basically it’s about as thick as a standard …

NatualRays Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Well, this is small. I’ll give it that. You can bag one on eBay for $28.99 in the US or £21.99 in the UK. There’s a blue one or this green one. In the box you’ll get a USB-to-microUSB cable for charging and a 3.5mm-to-microUSB cable should you …

Parkman H1 4000mAh Portable Charger – Review

I get a lot of these portable battery packs sent in. Reviewing them isn’t a big deal, but I do find it hard to write more than a couple sentences about it. What can you say really? It’s a device which is about as slim as your smartphone …
