As someone who hates carrying around my power cord and searching for the nearest outlet, I was excited to try out a portable power pack to easily charge my phone on the go. Motorola’s P793 Universal Dual-Charging Portable Power Pack is a slim, no-fuss device that makes keeping your mobile charged hassle free.
Though the power pack is Motorola, it’s compatible with most brands including Android, Blackberry, HTC and Samsung. The power pack claims to be able to juice up an iPhone, but it charger definitely wasn’t a fit. Perhaps there is some sort of adapter that needs to be included?
The power pack isn’t much to look at, but a power pack doesn’t need any bells and whistles. It’s lightweight and slim, which makes it easy to slip into a bag before you head out the door. The lights on the power pack indicate how much power is left to charge your phone and that’s about all you see. It’s great that device automatically shuts down after 30 seconds without a connection, ensuring that you aren’t wasting the power pack.
After charging my nearly dead phone with the power pack for several hours, I found that my battery had jumped from nothing to around 75-percent charged. It’s not perfect, but definitely enough to get me through the day. It may not look exciting but it gets the job done.
The Motorola P793 and other power packs are widely available at electronic stores. You can grab one like ours from AT&T for $40.
