In today’s connected world, power is everything. With electronics getting smaller and faster, this means battery run time is shorter and shorter. I’ve personally been through at least a dozen different power banks of different configurations and sizes. What I’ve settled on is a simple solution that is not only cost effective but extremely flexible for offering the most power while traveling.
Battery Charger / Power Bank
This item is unique in one very importance facet; It has removable batteries. This may not sound like a big thing, but there have been plenty of times when I’ve run down the batteries in other power banks and had to sit and wait while it recharges, slowly. Purchasing and charging an 8 pack of batteries gives you two full cycles of use, something that is really needed when you’re away from power for an extended time.
The power bank has a LCD screen that gives you a real-time view of the volts currently being drawn and a battery charge indicator – both extremely useful. It charges off a standard USB micro cable and can charge off standard USB phone chargers (1A and 2.1A).
They are the standing 18650 batteries that are quite common in the vaping world. These Li-ion batteries have a charge of 9800mAh and are easily obtained at local vape shops and online.
