With mobile devices taking over our lives we need to have them charged at all times and it seems power banks are the solution. They allow you to charge your device from practically anywhere, as long as you have the battery charged of course.
ADATA’s PV100 4200mAh Power Bank is the perfect device to add to your mobile arsenal. It will provide 4200mAh of power, which in our testing will charge an iPhone 5s two times over. The charging port is 2.1A so it should charge your devices pretty quickly. The PV100 is actually very thin as well so you can easily fit it in your pocket if need be.
Using the PV100 is pretty much straight forward. Simply plug it into a USB port to charge it up, you will know its charged by the LEDs on the front. Once it is charged just plug in the device you want to charge and you are good to go. You can even stop the charging process by pressing the power button on the front.
The PV100 is currently selling for $39.99 at my favorite online retailer, which puts it at a premium over other power banks. You do have to keep in mind the PV100 is very thin and is universal which means it can charge any device that charges via USB. Overall ThinkComputers gives the ADATA PV100 4200mAh Power Bank a 9 out of 10 score.
- Thin design
- 2.1A USB output
