Most of my trips are hardcore—I would go out early into the morning and return late at night. Before each day, I would charge all my gadgets fully, but given my heavy data usage, I deplete my phone’s battery by midday. My lifesaver nowadays is the long-lasting MOMAX iPower GO External Battery Pack that has since found a place in my bag. Read more…
The MOMAX iPower GO External Battery Pack comes in a palette of six vibrant colors—aqua, magenta, dyke blue, yellow, white, and black. What I have is the one in bright, fun yellow.
According to its official website, it measures 106mm x 78mm x 25mm, but in more practical terms, it’s sized similarly to an external hard drive, maybe only thicker. Sure, it packs in some weight, yet its power capacity explains its heftiness at about 200 grams.
Its key feature is of course its power capacity, which is an impressive 8800mAh. For those who are stumped with that figure, it’s like a battery of a laptop that could power up an efficient notebook for about 6-8 hours or fully charge a smartphone for about 6-7 times.
Given the power it stores, I am able to rapid charge my smartphones and my tablet while I am out. Unlike the power banks I already own though, my MOMAX iPower GO External Battery Pack charges two gadgets at one time with its two USB ports, and it doesn’t deplete even after charging two gadgets—I am able to charge my phone a number of times more. What’s even better is that it smartly shuts itself off when it is not charging anything to conserve power, even when a cable is attached to it.
Charging it is pretty easy. I would easily plug it in using one of the two included microUSB to USB cables to a power block before I sleep and let it be until the following morning. Just like that, it would be fully charged, and I would be able to use it for a number of days again.
In sum, the MOMAX iPower GO External Battery Pack is definitely an essential for travelers who are incessantly on-the-go or just about anyone who is tech-savvy like me. I mean, who would want to miss that opportunity to post a Facebook status, Twitter update, Foursquare check-in, or Instagram selfie simply because of an empty battery?
The MOMAX iPower GO External Battery Pack is available at branches of Digital Walker, Beyond the Box, and Digital Hub in the Philippines for only 2950 PHP.
