Sometimes when you’re on the go, electric outlets are either impossible to find or rarely available. Moreover, it’s dreadfully inconvenient to have to plug in when you could be moving, all because your power-hungry smartphone has a battery that lasts what seems like minutes. Enter mobile power packs, such as the Choiix Power Fort battery pack. It’s a small black box which has two purposes: charge your small electronics and double as a flashlight. ThinkComputers has the review.

The Choiix Power Fort comes in a cheap plastic box which shows a ton of information about the unit, including its capacity and capabilities. Our review unit is the advanced package, which includes a wall adapter, car adapter, and international plugs for most countries’ power systems. Also included is a USB to mini-USB cable and a USB to micro-USB cable. Newer smartphones use micro-USB for charging, so if your phone doesn’t have it, you’ll need to use your own cable.
