Choiix Power Fort Portable Battery Pack Review

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.

Special thanks to Choiix for providing us with the Power Fort Portable Battery Pack to review.

Packaging
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.

    I own a power pack similar to this that I purchased from Circuit City during their huge liquidation sale. It's made by Kensington and I've honestly used it more times than I can count. So many times have I used this on LAN party trips or vacations. It doesn't have the flashlight but it's one of the best electronic purchases i've made in a long time.

    The reason for purchase is kind of funny. It was at a LAN party and I needed a way to charge my phone because I didn't have a charger and the USB output on my laptop was strong enough to turn the dead phone on to start the charge. So I purchased this device and charged it through my laptop. I then plugged it into my phone and the output was so much that my phone didn't know the difference from the battery to the wall.

    Every time I go on a long trip with my laptop I take the battery pack. It's come to the point that I only take the one “USB to USB-mini” cord with me. I charge the battery from my laptop with the cord and then reverse it in the battery pack and hook my phone to it. (my phone uses a mini-USB connection). Very Awesome Product

    I own exactly the product reviewed. I used it on me recent trip to Europe and it worked as expected. It kept my phone/gps alive on several occasions where I didn’t have access to car/power for a long time.No six months later I decided to take it with me on another trip and found that it’s dead. Wouldn’t take charge, wouldn’t turn on. Dead. Contacting CoolerMaster for warranty replacement proved to be a nightmare. It’s one of the worst customer service websites you can imagine. I assume it was designed in Chinese and then (badly) translated.
    So it took me several weeks to get them to send me a new one.
