Let’s consider this a sequel to the Flipstick Portable Power Pack that I reviewed yesterday. Yes, this is another review of another mobile battery back, but it is quite something.
I have to admit that I really like the Flipcard. While it may not be small and compact as a credit card, it is a little thick because it is made for 5,000 mAh. That’s good, because you can get 2 full charges on a regular smartphone.
Much of what is on the Flipcard is on the Flipstick, with the LED battery level indicator lights and made for micro-USB, Lightning, and Type-C connector. This is one of the issues with mobile batteries, is they tend to be all alike. Oh wait, there is something different as the Flipcard has a 2.4 Amp output.
Okay, it really is quite a product, and you need to get in on this if you want a great mobile battery. You can purchase it on the TYLT site for about $49.99.
So, most people now have one of these mobile batteries because most smartphones can’t go a few hours without needing a charge. I suppose that we are to blame for what we put our phones through. I have reviewed so many that I have lost count, and today it is the Flipstick from TYLT, another company whose products that I have reviewed.
There is brand known as PocketJuice that it very cheap and does its mobile battery job. I don’t know if this is by design, but TYLT’s Flipstick has a similar shape.
I can’t remember what the stats are for a typical PocketJuice, but the Flipstick has a 3,350 mAh battery, as well as an input/output for 1 Amp USB port. Most mobile batteries have a USB port, and the Flipstick has that, plus some connector for the Micro, Type C, or Lightning Connector.
So what else does it have? Well, it has the typical LED battery level indicator lights, and it has a 3 hour charge time for the internal battery. I’m told that it provides about 1 full charge to the smartphone.
The Flipstick will be available on the TYLT site soon in colors of blue, white, and black for the micro-USB, Lightning, on USB Type C Connector.
It hasn’t been long since I have reviewed a TYLT product, the last being the FLIP-DUO AND THE Y-CHARGE (QUIK). Now I had a chance to review the TYLT ENERGI, made for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
The purpose of this product is to plug it in to the S6/S6 Edge, and you can slide it in. Then if you need a charge, you just push the button, and this 3,400 mAh battery will give you some juice, cutting you off when you don’t need it.
The good thing is that the ENERGI case is Qi compatible, so you can use it on one of those cool wireless chargers like the Powermat and other related products.
So, you have protection and power, not to mention the easy of Qi as well. I could find a third that starts with a “p”, but I will recommend the TYLT ENERGI if you have the S6 or S6 Edge. It can be purchased on the TYLT site for about $99.99.
Yes, I’ve had the privilege of reviewing TYLT products before, and I was pleased to try out some new ones with the FLYP-DUO and the Y-CHARGE [QUIK].
I’ll start with the FLYP-DUO, that is named for lots of flipping and duo-able action. I’ll start by saying that it has both a micro-USB as well as a Lightning connector. This means that it is good for both Apple and Android devices, but it can’t do two at once.
The USB is also reversible, meaning you don’t have to fiddle with the USB plug anymore. It is also max speed charging, so it really is just plain handy to have one of these around. You can get the FLYP-DUO on the TYLT site for $24.99.
This leads to the next product, the Y-CHARGE [QUIK]. I believe that when I first saw a Y-shaped product at TYLT booth at CES years ago, it was the first TYLT product that I was interested in reviewing. It connects to the car’s charging port (what used to be a cigarette lighter until…I don’t know) and then branches into two USB ports.
I am not certain why it is called the QUIK, but perhaps it has the SmartDetect Technology senses the device’s power needs to provide maximum rapid charging. According to the box, it charges up to 75 percent faster, and charges Apple devices up to 2.4 x Faster.
So that is why it is QUIK, as my favorite comic critic states: “because poor literacy is…kewl”. I guess that the 4.8 Amp circuit rapidly charging factor charges so fast that it got the “C” out of there. You should be able to purchase the TYLT Y-CHARGE [QUIK] for about $39.99 on the TYLT site.
Ah, another day, another TYLT product! Yes, I have reviewed a lot of TYLT products before in the past, and the last one was the VU Wireless Charging Car Mount.
Today, we are looking at the RIBBN Car Charger. I’m assuming that it is pronounced ribbon, because this is what it looks like. The best thing about the RIBBN is that it is guaranteed to be free from tangles. That’s pretty good because it measures at three feet, and it is available in micro USB plus Lightning.
It is also available in many different colors like Blue, Red, Black, and Yellow. By the way, the part that you can plug into the car’s cigarette lighter or whatever that port is called has an additional USB port. So with this particular RIBBN, you can charge two mobile devices at the same time.
So, if you want the RIBBN, you can get it on the TYLT site in the colors listed above. The Lightning version is available for $49.99 and the Micro USB version for $39.99.
It would appear that our friends from TYLT, makers of the Alin, are up to their old wireless charging tricks with the VU SOLO.
Now I have covered wireless chargers before, and I might as well go into the whole schtick I do about how every family should have a wireless charger because we can just put the mobile device on the charger and forget about it…blah, blah, blah. So yeah, the VU SOLO plugs into a USB, the micro USB plugs into the pad, and then you put the mobile device that is Qi powered.
So what makes this different? Well, different phones have their charging coil in different places, and sometimes, if you don’t set the phone down in the right way then it won’t charge at all. Fortunately, the VU SOLO has an adjustable “fence” on its cord so you can place it right. Okay, that didn’t make much sense, so I’ll just let the video after the jump explain it.
In addition to that cord feature, the SOLO has some kind of sticky stuff on the surface so it will hold still on the table, or wherever it is.
Okay, if my press contact is correct, the VU SOLO should be out right now. It is available here, and this probably won’t be the last time that I write about it. I plan to do a hands-on review of it, right before the holidays.
I have reviewed several cases that doubled as mobile batteries, and yes, I have reviewed the Energi Sliding case for the iPhone. Now I’ve reviewed the Sliding Power Case for the Galaxy S 5.
I like the sliding case because you get the case, but you don’t have to lug around the weight that a battery/case gives you. Instead, you get the protection of a case, and just attach that battery on when you need it in a pinch. Of course, you will have to charge that baby up.
I suppose that the only thing left to talk about is the 2800 mAh, as well as the 1.3 A output with intelligent power routing. If you got a Galaxy S 5, you should get a hold of it. You can get it on the TYLT site in Blue or Gray for about $79.99.
I have said before that I like to review TYLT products, and I had a chance to try out the TYLT Alin just recently. In all honesty, I don’t understand why some other company hasn’t come up with a product like it.
TYLT’s Alin solves a problem that most people have with screen protectors, they are difficult to put on. Actually, they really aren’t, but you have to do it just right, or your mobile phone has a new defect. With Alin, you just clean your phone and then snap it into the alignment tool. Then all you need to do is use the alignment tool to install the screen protector.
The guide edge is completely reusable, and the Alin comes with a 4 pack of 3 HD Clear Screen Protectors and 1 HD Anti-Glare Screen protector. The package that you can find here is for the Galaxy S5, and costs about $24.99. You can also get the Alin for the iPhone, iPad, and other models of the Galaxy.
I have been wanting to review the TYLT ENERGI+ BACKPACK for quite a while, and I finally got the chance. Heck, I have been talking about TYLT products for years, and they live up to their “built to last” slogan.
The ENERGI+ BACKPACK is something that someone like me truly needs. I carry around a backpack in my laptop so I can work on the go from time to time, but without a stable base of operations, my mobile devices tend to lose battery life very quickly. Fortunately, the TYLT ENERGI+ BACKPACK has a removable 10,400 mAh rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, and this is good enough for 4 full smartphone charges or one full tablet charge.
This is perfect for when you want to take your phone with you on the go, but afraid of it running out of juice. It even has a pocket at the top devoted for a phone so it will charge while you are walking. You can fit your sunglasses in it as well, and there is a hole for the headphones in case you want to listen to tunes along the way.
I might as well talk about the pockets. There are 13 pockets total, with 5 external ones and 2 internal ones. In addition to this helpful feature, this backpack is designed for carrying on to the airplane. Just unzip it and the T.S.A. will know exactly what is inside.
If you want to get in on this action, head on over to the TYLT site and lay down $199.99 for it. I believe that is worth it if you are a world traveler with a laptop.
Sure, I have reviewed mobile batteries before, and I have also reviewed products from TYLT before. I am pleased to review more products with the TYLT ENERGI 5K + Battery pack.
Do I really need to say again that I have reviewed products like these before? This just shows you that it is really difficult to find something unique. Looks like CES 2014 is coming back to me again.
So let’s start with what is unique about the ENERGI 5K+. It has embedded Lightning and micro-USB cables. So if you have the two most popular phones, an Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy, you got it. You can charge two devices with its 3 Amp circuit, and there is also a USB port.
I almost forgot the most important thing, it is a 5200 mAh battery. When it comes to products like these, this is the most important thing. Also, the size is pretty good for something like this at only 9/16 of an inch thick.
You should be able to get the ENERGI 5K+ for about $89.99 on the TYLT site.
