Very compact & extends you device's battery life with absolute ease...,
This review is from: Vinsic Tulip 3200mAh Power Bank, External Mobile Battery Charger Pack 1A for iPhone, iPad, iPod, Samsung Devices, Cell Phones (Silver) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The Vinsic Tulip 3200mAh Power Bank is an incredibly small and compact Power Bank for extending the battery life on your portable electronic devices when you're not able to get to a mains socket etc.
Unlike other, much larger Power Banks available on the market, the Vinsic Tulip 3200mAh does not actually recharge your device's battery - but rather, when plugged in, it will simply act almost like an additional battery; giving your device a much needed boost of power when its internal battery is running low.
Measuring 9.5cm x 2cm x 2cm - the Power Bank really is incredibly compact. We're talking not much bigger than an average-sized finger. As such, the Power Bank really is an incredibly easy thing to carry around with you - perhaps in a pocket, in a handbag, a reasonably spacious purse, a bag, briefcase or simply stashed away in your car's glovebox.
The Power Bank has four small white LEDs on its face that tell the user how much power it has left in it. When all four LEDs are illuminated the Power Bank is fully charged. You can check the power level by pressing the small white button on the front of the Power Bank and it will illuminate the LEDs accordingly.
In practice, the Power Bank takes around two hours to charge from completely dead. How long this additional charge will last for your device will depend entirely on what device it is. However, for an iPod it seems to have pretty much doubled the batter life and it gave around 45 additional minutes on our iPad. It substantially prolonged the battery life on my old-school style Kindle (but I have no idea by how much as we're talking hours and hours worth!).
All in all I've been very happy with the product. It's small enough to be very easy to carry around with you, and gives enough of a boost to your device to hopefully last you until you have a chance to fully recharge your device from a mains socket.
