I suppose this is the time where I say that it has been a while since I have reviewed a Phonesuit product, and I’m realizing that I say a lot of the same things in my reviews. Needless to say, this is an upgrade of my first review of the Journey All-in-One Charger with the Journey Travel Charger Ultra for the iPhone, Samsung, and More! (Sorry, but that and more really makes it sound exciting.)
So what is it? Well, it is a mobile battery, which we have seen before, so nothing new there. However, see how it spreads its arms like that? It’s quite amazing, and one of those arms is a Lightning for Apple products, and the other is Micro-USB for pretty much everything else.
Yeah, I have been noticing that some mobile batteries have these two charging cables, but if you are like me, and you have something like an HTC 10, with a USB C port, you are out of luck, at least with the two cables attached. By the way, there is a blurb on the Phonesuit website that says it can do a HTC, with the micro-USB. Yeah, it is wrong.
As it so happens, you got yourself an extra USB port. You heard that right, you can charge three devices at once with this. Three seems to be the magic number for this guy because it can provide up to 3 times (300 percent) additional power for a smartphone. So pretty much anything that is chargeable via USB (which is about everything) is chargeable, but maybe not three times.
The battery is good for 5000 Mah, so that is pretty good. There is also an advanced smart power management thing going on, so it knows how to prioritize charging. Yeah, I’m going to have to take their word for it.
So is it durable? It sure feels that way. It is designed for travel, which means it will take the bumps along the way. I’m not going to hurl it against the wall, because hey, I’m not that angry.
Anyway, you can get the Journey Travel Charger Ultra on the Phonesuit site for about $59.99.
