If you own an Android smartphone and/or tablet then you know there’s no such thing as too much battery power. No matter how efficient the processor or how fancy the display technology, we can always do with a bit more juice. As such, many users have taken to picking up extended batteries for their handsets. Myself? Well, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with myCharge’s Portable Power Bank 6000.
I received a review unit earlier this year at CES and it’s been my first-packed accessory ever since. Going out of town for the weekend? Stepping out of the office for a few hours? Whatever the case, it’s always with me. What makes it so special? Plenty.
For starters, the PPB6000 holds 6000mAh of battery life, or roughly 3-4 times what a typical smartphone offers. Add to it that the device features an integrated cable with microUSB and miniUSB connections and it’s already a winner. Yeah, there’s also an Apple connector in there as well but that’s irrelevant to me. However, there are a few times that I’ve been the most popular guy in the room and have come to the aid of iPhone users.
Other nifty features that I’ve come to appreciate include the LED indicator that keeps me informed as to how much juice I have left. What’s more, the microUSB charging is rather quick and the overall design is slim enough to toss in any pocket, bag, or glove compartment. At $99 I would recommend this to anyone with a smartphone, tablet, Apple product, or mobile accessories. At less than $60 each? Buy one for yourself and one for a friend!
