Ever been out on the road, hiking, or anywhere where you can’t plug your phone in and had your battery go out on ya? Well I have many times! Especially when Im out for a day at swap meets and garage sales and use my phone constantly for scanning goodies to buy. This puts a drain on my iPhones battery and Im not always able to plug into the car charger. Thats where a portable charger or battery backup really comes in handy.
When I got the chance to review the +LIFEGUARD MINI 1 External Power Bank I jumped at the chance!
One thing I love is that it can get your device 100% charged in Under 2 hours. It was doing about 1% every minute or so. I also love that it has a tough aluminum shell which makes it impact resistant. When the device arrived I was happy to find that it included 2 cables. One for charging the device itself and another lighting cable for charging newer Apple products. It has two ports as well, of course one for charging and one for connecting your phone to. It has a single LED on the side that will be red when the battery is charging or blue when you are charging your phone. No buttons to press just plug your device into the batter and it starts to charge.
Here are some of their own specs:
● Smart plug & play Samsung grade A cell battery.
● Real 3000mAh capacity – full charge your phone and still have juice.
● Quick charge – get your device 100% charged in 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
● 5.9in Apple compatible lightning cable INCLUDED.
● Tough aluminum shell makes it impact resistant.
● Can be recharged more than 800 times.
● CE, ROHS and FCC certified.
