Smart phones and tablets are now integral parts of modern life and you only just have to walk down the street or visit an airport to see how much of an influence these devices have. The problem with most smart devices (e.g. smart phones and tablets) is that their battery life is an issue, especially if you use it religiously like myself and also use Bluetooth with puts additional strain on the battery. Hence, you need to continuously charge these devices via the mains.

Features

  • Massive 11000mAh Capacity – enough power to charge your smartphone up to 7 times
  • Dual USB Ports – charge 2 devices at once, featuring both 1Amp and 2.1Amp outputs
  • High Speed Charging – High speed 2.1Amp output suitable for charging tablets
  • Pre-Charged – ready to charge your device straight out of the box
  • Micro USB Included – short, pocket and bag-friendly USB to Micro USB cable included
  • Finished in a soft-touch rubber coating

Unfortuantely in some places you cannot easily connect your smart device to the mains which is where the excellent ChargeUp Pro Powerbank comes into play. The ChargeUp Pro Powerbank from Cygnett is basically a 11000mAh capacity battery which easily allows you to connect a variety of devices such as a phone, tablet or digital camera into the product via its two USB ports. That’s right, you can actually charge two devices simultaneously on the ChargeUp Pro Powerbank which is brilliant!

The ChargeUp Pro Powerbank also comes in three different colour combinations which includes black/grey, blue/grey or grey/green which is great for the fashion savvy.  With that said, the design of this item is quite minimalistic and streamlined and measures at 138x62x22mm and is also quite light for a battery. In order to charge the Powerbank, you simply connect the product via the included USB cable.

The Powerbank also has four LED’s on the side of the unit which informs the user of how much battery life is left. This is broken down to 4 lights 70-100%, 3 lights 50-75%, 2 lights 25-50% and 1 light 0-25% charge. However in order to charge your device, you need to ensure that you have a compatible USB cable and for most people, this should prove no issues. All in all, it’s a great little device!

Final Thoughts?

The ChargeUp Pro Powerbank is a great portable battery to assist users in need of a smartphone or digital camera power boost in places where accessing the mains would be difficult. It is a little heavy but given the 11000mAh battery size and the ability to charge 2 items at once, it’s really a moot point in our opinion!
