Omaker Brilliant 10000mAh

This is a great portable battery, offering plenty of backup charge. There’s plenty of juice for all of your gadgets and the two USB ports really help this battery to stand out a little from the competition, offering the ability to charge multiple gadgets on the go.

I used this with my iPad and iPhone and had no issues at all charging either. The charge times were fantastic, offering a very speedy recharge time.

There’s a handy wave like LED battery indicator that shows off how much charge is left in the battery, helping to prevent you from getting caught out. The micro USB port for charging the battery is a welcome addition meaning that you won’t need to seek out different cables.

Now for a bit of an odd feature that I never expected to find on a portable battery is the torch. It’s not on the top of my ‘must have’ features, but I must admit it comes in handy for those odd occasions and it is a very bright torch.

The device itself is relatively light weight and feels nice to hold. It has a matte finish, helping to prevent finger prints and also stopping it from sliding out of your grip.

All in all this is a fantastic portable battery. The two USB ports and the torch help it to stand out and when combined with the large capacity you can’t really go wrong!

Please note I was sent this product to test and offer an unbiased review on.

iPhone 5S Battery Case Review

Normally battery cases like this are relatively large and bulky but to be honest this case doesn’t add a huge amount. Granted, it is thicker and longer, but compared to others I’ve used this is on the smaller size.

The build quality is good, sturdy and well put together. It comes with two plastic surrounds, a smokey brown and a clear plastic. These clip around the iphone, holding it in place and protecting the surround. It feels secure and the case hasn’t come apart once since using it, which is extremely positive. It’s a little fiddley taking the case apart, but you know that means it is nice and secure. One added little thing is that this case redirects your speakers so they are front facing, absolutely amazing for media and also for conference calls on loudspeaker!

The one thing that feels like a let down regarding the quality is the kickstand. It’s a great addition and comes in handy, but on the flip side it is very thin and I can imagine it will quite easily snap off after a knock.

The battery charging, probably the main reason you’re looking at this product, is fantastic. It offered me another two charges which was fantastic. One thing I tested was whether or not this case could charge my phone from flat and I’m happy to say that it could. Other cases I’ve used have failed to do this, so I’m more than happy with this feature. Also the added fact that I no longer need to carry a lightning cable around as this case acts as a Micro USB adapter is a massive win!

At first glance I was concerned that a lot of head phones would not be compatible with this case, but after looking through the box I found the supplied headphone adapter which will help resolve that issue. Everything you need comes provided which is a bonus.

So is it worth the cost? Yes, definitely. It’s well built, solid and offers the power user everything they could need. If you’re looking for a case with built in battery then look no further!

 

 

 

Aukey Portable Battery Review

This is a product that is not only extremely handy to own, but it also looks fantastic! The first thing that struck me after receiving my package was how nicely this device is presented. The packaging and box is like something you’d expect from Apple, sleek and well put together. You get to open it all up, slowly getting to the product itself.

It comes with a nice little case that is a good fit for the device itself, which also has a small pouch on the front to store the very flexible USB cable that comes included.

The device charges from Micro USB, so it’s universal with no need to carry around a spare charger for your device. Oddly with other portable chargers I’ve used in the past they have had chargers such as Mini USB or their own, which becomes a bit of a hindrance. This device however does not suffer from that issue.

The device has a standard USB port for charging your devices and charges your gadgets very quickly. I used it with my iPad Air and my android devices. For my phones I was able to get 3-4 charges and my iPad got a single charge. There was no slow down in charging which is fantastic and this comes in very handy for on the go charging,

The charger is sleek, its rubberised finish almost perfect as it doesn’t slide everywhere and also allows for you to put your phone on top without it sliding off. That might sound like an odd plus point but the charger is almost the perfect size to rest my phone on, so it was nice knowing that if I accidentally knocked my phone it would go sliding away.

The cable that is included is a nice touch as it is very flexible. It’s not like the ones you get included with your gadgets which makes storage easy but also using your device while it is on charge is exceptionally easy.

The small LED lights display how much juice is left in your charger, helping to prevent you getting caught unaware, avoiding times when you might run completely out. This is extremely handy.

Compared to other similar products this is the best I’ve used. It’s functional but absolutely premium. It looks and feels great and the additional case and USB cable really complete the package. For those who are running out of juice on the go, this is an absolute must have!
