My mobile phone is my source of entertainment; specifically for its wide array of social apps and mobile games. Personally, I feel that a fully charged battery is like a shield to withstand any mobile phone mishaps. For a battery sucker like me, the difference between victory and defeat when playing Minion Rush on my phone is calculated in mere seconds and a smashed phone!
The PowerSkin Pop’n battery charger is godsend to all mankind – to the mobile phone devotees who gets paranoid upon seeing the red battery signal, at least. It adds a few more lives to your phone – allowing you to live like any normal human being. I am pleased to be given the chance to review this.
The PowerSkin battery charger, which supports most mainstream Android devices such as Samsung, LG, HTC, Asus or Google Nexus, is one of the world’s first and widely anticipated external battery charger for Android devices.
Taking an interesting approach, the PowerSkin battery charger’s tough plastic exterior, is cladded with rubber suction cups on the interior as well as a flexible connector tip at the bottom that could flex up to 90 degrees. The suction cups on the inside of the charger is a brilliant idea as it gives users the flexibility of externally attaching the charger to their phones or over existing phone cases and one can be assured that it will not fall off easily.
Packing along a 2000 mAh charger, it is able to charge a dead Samsung Galaxy S II back to its 100% battery capacity in just over an hour. If you are into preserving battery power, the charger has LED indicator lights which will display the amount of charge left. These battery indicators as well as the on/off button are brilliant as it allows users to do a quick battery check and can stop the charger at any time.
The PowerSkin Hybrid is all about convenience. It is constructed to a size so convenient and perfect for users to carry it around. Retailing at $69.90, it might be a bit too costly for some, but its slim, lightweight feature which allows you to fit discreetly in any bag and even the fun ‘POP’ sound from the suction as you pull off your phone, serves as fair redemption for its price.
Just like the lyrics of Battery by Metallica prophesised, “Hypnotising power, crushing all that cower, battery is here to stay”. The power of battery is undeniably potent, and for PowerSkin’s case, it is definitely here to stay.
