I am certainly no stranger to MyCharge products. In fact, I have reviewed three of them in the past two months. Now, I had a chance to review the HubPlus-C, and all I can say is: it’s about time.
You see, I happen to have a phone with a USB C port, the HTC 10. I honestly believe that this gives me the power to charge my phone very fast.
I’m not certain if I am getting ahead of myself, as I am describing something that I may or may not have properly introduced. Generally, I reviewed a lot of mobile batteries, and it is usually the standard shtick of charging them (generally via USB) just so you can charge a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device later.
The HubPlus-C is the first of its type that I have encountered with a built-in USB-C cord, and it also comes with a micro USB cable as well. There is also a USB port, in case you want to charge some other third thing. Also, this is a battery with prongs that flip out so you can charge the myCharge HubPlus-C with a typical wall outlet.
So yes, the MyCharge HubPlus-C is a very convenient product to have. About the only thing left is to give the stats. It is good for 6700 mAh and an output of 18 W Max. About the only thing that I don’t have is the price. So far, I don’t see the product on the site, but I’ll see about getting a price and updating this blog with the proper link.
So, now we that we are in the process of reviewing a whole bunch of myCharge products, I’m going to review the HubMax.
I don’t know if the HubMax is a sequel to the HubPlus, but that was a mobile battery that I took to CES and really was able to make full use of it. The HubMax is almost double the power at 10500 mAh (that’s up to 6x extra battery), and it has both the micro-USB and Lightning cables so you can charge two devices at once.
This way, you don’t have to carry your charging cables around with you when you go places with both your iPhone and your Samsung…okay, maybe you have some other kind of micro-USB device that you need to charge. Oh, there is also an extra USB port, so I suppose that you could charge 3 devices at once. By the way, it recharges up to 50 percent faster than competitors.
This is one of those great mobile batteries that plugs into the wall to charge, with a 3.4 A output. If you want to check this out for yourself, it can be purchased on the myCharge site for $99.99.
Yes, it is time to do another review of three products in a row, and this time it is from myCharge, a product that I have reviewed in the past. I’m going to start with the with the AmpProng+.
The AmpProng+ is one of those mobile batteries, and I have reviewed so many of these that I am not even going describe what they do. However, I’ll go ahead and describe what special features this has.
AmpProng+ is a 6700 mAh portable charger, which means it is good for up to a 4X charge on a typical smartphone. You can charge it by plugging it into the wall, and then you have two 2.4A output on double USB ports.
Yes, you can charge two devices with this thing if you like, and why shouldn’t you? You probably have at least two mobile devices that could use a little juice as you are on the road. It can power tablets and smartphones up to 65 percent faster, which is very, very nice.
I will have to say that the AmpProng+ is very light, and it is good for holding power for about a year. It is recommended, and you can get it on the myCharge site for about $49.99.
Once again, I find myself reviewing another fine myCharge product with the PowerGear Sound. It is very similar to the PowerGear Sport, as it is a mobile battery made to charge certain products.
In the case of the PowerGear Sound, it is not made for wearables, but wireless earbuds. Yes, there are a lot of wireless earbuds that are going to be hitting the market this year, and I have heard that some are out now. I am not talking about wireless earbuds that fit in the ears and wired together in the back. I am talking about two individual earbuds, which will soon be the standard, I believe.
The PowerGear Sound could be used to power just about anything, provided it is powered by a micro-USB cord. For example, if you have a Bluetooth headset or one of those wired pair of wireless earbuds (see previous paragraph), the PowerGear Sound should be good to power it. It is also a case to keep your device in while it is charging.
The battery on the myCharge PowerGear Sound is a 1,000 mAh one, which makes it good for charging a powered device made for the ear several times. Since it is a mobile battery, it has those four indicator lights and the button to begin the charging process.
It is a pretty great device, and it can be purchased on the myCharge site for $39.99.
It seems like I do a lot of MyCharge reviews, and they are very good at doing mobile battery products such as the Razor Platinum for the MacBook and the All-Terrain Portable Charger. What is interesting is how the company is making all kinds of products, and I had a chance to review the PowerGear Sport, a protective case made for wearables.
The PowerGear Sport is this thing that looks like a pouch or a holster. It opens up, and it has a place your wearable. I am told that it is good for products like the Apple Watch and the Fitbit. If you look at the picture, you might thing that it comes with some kind of inductive charger for fitness bands and smartwatches. It actually does not, but it has a USB port so it could essentially charge anything that is USB chargeable, really.
I guess this makes the PowerGear Sport a fancy battery, and that is a good thing. It has the four indicator lights as well as the button to start the charging process. It has a capacity of 2,000 mAh, which is supposedly good enough for charging a Fitbit 50 times. Seriously, that is quite a bit, so I don’t know how that compares to smartphones and other USB powered devices.
You should be able to purchase the PowerGear Sport on the myCharge site for about $29.99 in either pink or gray.
So, I have tried myCharge products in the past, such as the HubPlus and the 2000 mAh charger. Today, I got the All Terrain to try out, and I’m not certain how to describe it.
Okay, I do, it is portable charger, which is what you use when you need some power. I just can’t describe this shape but like a handle of a gun, maybe?
This thing is IP68 military grade, so it is waterproof, temperature proof, dirt proof, and shock-proof. Yes, it has the big four there.
So, it can flip up with a built-in USB port for the 2.1 A output and then have the micro-USB for charging. It can hold battery power for up to 1 year, and charge up to 65 percent faster.
If you are wanting this extra power, you can find it on the myCharge site for $39.99.
After New Year’s Day, I will be heading to Las Vegas, and I could be using something like the myCharge HubPlus. I had a chance to try it out as a little bonus Christmas present.
This is the Rechargeable 6000mAh portable charger from myCharge, and it is something that I have reviewed before with the mobile battery. In this case, the HubPlus has retractable prongs to it can charge up for 45 hours.
Here’s the reason why it is called the HubPlus. It actually has two charging cables, one of them is a Lightning cable and the other is a micro-USB cable. It can charge up to 65 percent faster than competitors.
If this something that you want, head on over to the myCharge site and lay down about $99.99.
Of course, I am reviewing another mobile battery, because these things are just that popular. This one my myCharge is the PowerStyle, and it does give the mobile battery some style.
It looks like it is made to fit in your pocket, but has a great style. It has a 2000 mAh worth of power, which allows it to be used for about 500 times. That might not be a lot, but if the power saves your butt, it is worth it.
The PowerStyle is made to fit in a USB port, and then it has a female USB port that you can connect your charging cord to it. From there, you have the power.
All right, there really isn’t much more that I can say about this. You can get it for a low price on the $19.99 on the myCharge site.
It isn’t often that I put the product’s packaging with the product, but when it came time to review this product, I was very surprised at what I saw. Yeah, you see that bottle of the MyChrage Energy Shot Backup Battery? It looks like a bottle of 5-hour Energy Drink, doesn’t it?
I suppose that this is the idea, that the MyCharge Energy Shot is supposed to be what 5-hour Energy Drink is to humans. That is, some sort of quick energy boost to beat one’s 2:30 lull. In this case, this 2000mAh battery gives you up to 9 hours of extra talk time.
Just to let you know, the USB port only gives 1.0 A of input. What is really interesting is how you can check the battery level, by shaking it. If you see the green glow, it means that you have some juice.
Now here is the part in my mobile battery review where I say that I have reviewed products like these before. Here’s something that I have never said before. I see no shortage in mobile devices with tablets and smartphones, so I cannot help but wonder if maybe I am in the wrong business. Yeah, perhaps I should be selling mobile batteries for a living.
This one is about $24.99 on the Frys.com site, so I wonder how much this costs to make. How much of a profit can I turn?
