Review: Red-E Powerbank – The Ultra-thin Portable Charger
Recently we received some Red-E Powerbanks for the office and we were pleasantly impressed with how nifty and cool these little devices are. The 2500mAh Powerbank and portable charger stores enough power for a full charge of your smartphone and allows you to charge your device anywhere and at any time. This makes the Red-E powerbank a fantastic addition to the list of things that you need to make sure to keep on hand at all times, especially now that load shedding seems to be a recurring theme that impacts day to day life. So no more need to stress about those dreaded red lights and battery warnings that seem to appear far too quickly.
This highly compact and ultra-thin (6.6mm) device comes standard with a built in-cable compatible with Micro USB (Samsung, Blackberry, Go Pro) and 8 pin adapter that will fit devices such as the new iPhone. The charging cable conveniently tucks into the device to keep it safe, so no need to worry that the cable gets lost or left behind.
The device requires a Micro USB in order to be recharged, although this should not be a problem for android owners, which can then be plugged into any wall or car charger as well as a laptop or computer. This portable battery takes between 4 and 5 hours to fully charge, once fully charged it is capable of fully charging your device at least once, this will depend on the battery size of your device. It comes standard with a lifetime guarantee thus making the device even more appealing.
The Red-E Powerbank RC25 is currently on sale at iWarehouse for R169 or it can be purchased at Outdoor Warehouse for R195. The 6000mAh Power Bank, which is capable of charging up to 3 devices simultaneously, will cost you roughly R500 and can be purchased from Cape Union Mart, Sportsmans warehouse and iWarehouse.
