POCK­ET­POWER

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

There is no deny­ing that smart­phones have sim­pli­fied our lives. The ad­di­tion of push email no­ti­fi­ca­tions, big­ger and bet­ter touch dis­plays and higher megapixel cam­era have paved way for a big­ger bat­tery. But even with a 1700 mah ca­pac­ity, their bat­ter­ies of­ten don’t last more than a day. For vic­tims of cough­ing bat­ter­ies, Belkin has come up with a sim­ple so­lu­tion that can in­stantly en­er­gise their smart­phone.

The Power Pack 2000 is a com­pact de­vice to re­fuel bat­ter­ies. It has a USB port for con­nect­ing smart­phones us­ing data cable. It also has a mi­crousb port that can be plugged to a lap­top us­ing a Usb-to-mi­crousb cable. There are two LED in­di­ca­tors that dis­play how much charge is left in the pack. Once charged fully, it stores the bat­tery for fu­ture use. Ap­par­ently, it can re­tain charge for over a month. While test­ing, we tried charg­ing a few smart­phones with over 1500 mah bat­tery and it did man­age to put new life in them. Avail­able in dif­fer­ent ca­pac­i­ties, the Power Pack 2000 is a smart de­vice to have when you are on the move.
