I bought my teenagers cell phones so that I’d always be able to get in contact with them. My 13-year-old son, Dustin, especially wants to assert his independence, but I worry. Knowing that he has his cell phone on him (and he never goes anywhere without it) helps – but not if the battery is dead!
Adfilic sent me their Ultra Mini External Battery to try out, and I immediately gave it to Dustin to keep in his backpack. No more “my phone was dead” excuses!
This power bank (2600mAh) is about the size, shape, and weight of a mini-flashlight – there’s a little heft to it (it is a battery, after all), but it’s small enough and light enough to easily fit in my son’s backpack (or even in his pocket if he’s just taking a walk down to the library). When you recharge the power bank, there’s a little red light that turns blue when it’s fully charged. Fully charged, it can pass along a full charge to my son’s phone (a Droid Razr M smartphone) and still have a bit of recharging power available.
The Adfilic Power Bank has a Samsung cell, which the Amazon listing states will allow your phone to charge more quickly than with other power banks. Since I don’t have another power bank to compare it to, I’m passing along this information but have not verified it personally. I can, however, vouch for the fact that it’s sturdy enough that I’m not (very) worried that Dustin might break it – it’s designed to not break or malfunction even if it’s dropped, and it’s compatible with more devices than I have room to list here (check out the Amazon listing for full details). And right now it comes with a 3-in-1 USB cable (micro USB cable, Apple iPhone 5/5s lightning cable, and Apple iPhone 3+4th Gen Dock Connector).
You can purchase the Adfilic Power Bank on Amazon for $19.97 (at time of posting) (Prime eligible). It comes with a 12 month, no-questions asked money back guarantee.
