I love that this charger. It is easy to use and has 4 lights to indicate how much power is left on your battery pack. When it has a full charge, all 4 mini blue lights will light up and will reduce as you use the device to charge your phone. While testing out the device, I wanted to make sure that you could still use the phone while it was charging. In fact, I was able to play on my phone while the RAVpower was doing its job. I also drained my battery on my phone so that I could test out the RAVpower battery pack and it fully charged my phone fairly quickly. I also like that you don’t have to attach a huge bulky battery pack to the side of your phone or end of the end of an iPhone, like one of my previous battery packs that I had. Instead, you simply attach the battery pack using the cable provided or a longer USB to micro USB cable for your convenience. I could easily leave the power pack in my pocket or purse while I was talking on my phone (with a my longer cable).
I love that this device also includes a flashlight. This will come in handy if I am looking for something or the power goes out in my house. In order to activate the flashlight you have to hold down the power button for a few seconds until it turns on. The flashlight is very bright, in fact, my youngest son loves playing with the flashlight. The flashlight has three modes: low, high, and strobe.
The RAVPower Mini Lipstick Charger comes in the following colors: Black, Silver, Gold, and Pink. This device is only $17.99 plus shipping. The package comes with: 1 RAVPower Luster Mini 3000mAh Lipstick Charger, 1 USB Power Wire, and Instruction Manual. You can use any standard USB wall device to charge the power bank.
I absolutely love this little gadget. It would make a great white elephant gift, stocking stuffer, or even a gift for yourself. I love having the ability to change my cell phone while I am out running errands or if the power goes out in my house. In fact, I made sure that it was fully charged yesterday because the power kept flickering in my house.
Do you have an external battery pack for your cell phone?
