Recently Dutch company Xtorm got in touch to offer some mobile power accessories for us to review. We accepted, and they sent out the subject of today’s review: the XB202 Power Bank Discovery 17,000.

This tiny portable charger is designed to fit in your wallet, providing that emergency power you might need at the end of a long day. It’s called the Dubleup, and it’s available on Kickstarter right now. We were sent an early unit to review, so let’s take a closer look!Design

Smartphones and tablets are brilliant, but they’re always limited by one thing: power. No matter how shiny your device is, after a day or two you’ll be reaching for the charger. Today, we’re looking at two gadgets to help you on that point: the Intocircuit 15000mAh Power Bank and the iClever 6-Port Fast USB Desktop Charger. These come courtesy of top Amazon seller Hisgadget.inc. Let’s get started.
Today I’m looking at a power bank and portable charger for mobile phones and tablets called the EnerPlex Jumpr. EnerPlex promise that it’s portable, capacious and convenient – and it even matches the orange theme of the site. Let’s put it to the test!
Running out of battery sucks. That low battery warning is like a shambolic friend, always stumbling in at the worst possible moment to make things all about him. Trying to find your hotel? He’s there. Want to finish that movie? He’s there. On an important call? Oh yeah, he’s there too. Just dealing with him is bad enough, but you even start changing your plans to work around him, turning down stuff you’d enjoy because it’d upset him. Thankfully, there’s a way to pacify him – the Innergie PocketCell. This portable power pack steps in on your behalf, charging your devices and showing your inconsiderate friend the door.
