4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, solid product, 18 Nov. 2013

This review is from: EC Technology 13000mAh External Charger for Apple and Android smartphones and tablets - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
This is a hefty external battery in more ways than one. Firstly, it is quite large (about the size of an iPhone but considerably thicker) and reasonably heavy. This gives the feeling of being a robust and substantial product. It has a pleasant feel to it and can be held in one hand.

The second way in which it is hefty is in the amount of charge it holds. I was given a free product in exchange for a review and so I spent a week using the battery as the sole way in which to charge my electronic devices just to see how long it lasted. A week later, I had used it to charge my phone, Kindle, iPod and a bluetooth speaker on more than one occasion and had still only used 25% of the charge. This is very impressive, especially as it can charge two items at the same time (one slot is specifically for items such as tablets but you can recharge smaller devices in it as well) - larger items use more power but you should still get quite a few recharges from this product. The battery also doubles as a very effective small torch which will last a very long time but which is probably a bit unwieldy to hold for considerable periods because of the weight and the size of the battery (people with strong, large hands will be fine).

I can see that this would be a very useful product if you were travelling a lot or camping for a period. It could also be used where you have a number of people who might need to recharge devices over a day or so and who could share it. It is not light enough really to carry around in a bag just in case you needed it but it would fit easily into the glove compartment of a car or a suitcase.

The amount of charge remaining in the battery is shown by four blue lights which reduce in number as it empties. The battery is charged up itself using mini-USB cable which is included but you will need a plug if you want to recharge from the mains suppy. A cable with a number of different attachments is provided for you to charge your devices, or you could use your own cables. The battery could have done with a travelling case or container of some sort to store these as they are easy to lose. In fact, a case might have been nice to hold the battery and whatever cables you needed when out and about.

All in all, a useful, substantial and robust product.
