How annoying is it when you are out for the day or night and your mobile phone dies!
In this generation we seem to be constantly glued to our phones meaning our phone batteries take quite a hammering and as a result often die within 4-5 hours meaning you are stuck, well not any more…
The thumbsUp! Xtra Power Charger really is a blessing in disguise and will save you from any future dead phone batteries (as long as you charge the Xtra Power Charger of course).
The charger came in a very compact and smart looking box and had the funky looking thumbsUp! logo on it so I knew that the item inside would be good as I have previously reviewed items from this company and it’s a real favourite of mine!
Upon opening I found the following:
- 1 Xtra Power Charger (in black)
- 6 various adapters (micros USB, mini USB, iPhone and iPod, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and Nokia)
- 1 charging lead
- 1 instruction booklet
- 1 free gift coupon
I started by reading the instructions which were easy to understand and were in a pocket size booklet so ideal to take with you on your travels should you need to. The instructions were printed in a variety of languages which is excellent!
I have recently upgraded to an iPhone 5 and was a little annoyed to discover that my previous charger no longer fitted so I was delighted to see the iPhone 5 adapter included! I have an adapter for my iPhone 5 to go over the iPhone 4 charger/adapter.
The adapters cover a wide range of mobile phone makes and really is suitable for all the family, my husband for example has a Nokia, myself an iPhone and my stepdaughter a Samsung so the different adapters mean none of us will be without power!
The charger charged up very quickly using lead and my phone charger head and the heart shaped butting is a fantastic way to indicate how much power is in the Xtra Power Charger. The torch on the side of the charger is absolutely genius and I have never seen this before on a portable charger, what a great idea thumbsUp!
I found the charger really did charge my phone up brilliantly even when it was completely dead and I cheat slightly by switching my phone to flight mode when charging as it doesn’t take as long to charge fully.
Overall I am highly impressed with this smart and sleek charger and will be taking it along with me whenever I go out as it fits into your pocket or your bag.
Excellent value for money.
