I bought a Mophie charger before a weekend trip to London… I didn’t want to bring all kinds of adapters because plugs in the UK are different from basically, the rest of the world.
I saw the YouTuber iJustine using that brand, and she seemed satisfied with it. Since she’s really into tech stuff I trusted her judgement & went to an Apple store on my last afternoon before leaving, and just asked a guy there which one would fit my needs the best.
Went with the “powerstation 8x” which pretty much means that it’s supposed to provide up to eight times battery life to my iPhone 6s nonetheless… big deal 🙂 During my trip I used it to charge both my iPhone 6s & 4s, plus my iPad mini and I still had some juice left when I came back home. I am totally happy about it, definitively the most practical thing to me since I’m always on the go and can’t charge my devices everywhere.
This external battery also looks great, it’s thin and has a plain design which I like. It comes with a micro USB cable too, so you can recharge it either on your computer or using an AC plug. The Mophie app is very helpful to monitor the battery life of your device & the powerstation, sending notifications to inform when it’s full or near empty.
I am addicted to it, I never leave home anymore without my Mophie charger. It feels great to be able to use your devices without freaking out about the battery life, since you can charge it up whenever. It can fit in your purse no problem, and the charging ratio is 15W which is fast enough, you’d be surprised.
Supposedly though, you can charge other devices to it… like your camera or portable console, or even headphones. I haven’t really tried that, so I don’t know, but I love the fact that this powerstation can charge up two devices at once.
9/10 AMAZING This is a must-have product, especially if you’re the type of person who travels often and uses a lot your electronics… like me. The only annoying thing is that you need to carry all the cables, for each device you want to plug it to. That’s many for me. Still better than an adapter, and way more convenient since you don’t need to be near a plug, you can do anything you want while the powerstation does its thing discreetly.
