If there’s one thing that’s becoming more and more important it’s more power for your smartphone.  Even as the latest smartphones give you more life in the battery we seem to find new ways to drain them faster so how do you go about ensuing you’ve always got power?  A portable battery

I’ve seen a lot of battery packs, they are the new popular accessory – we’ve all got our fancy phone cases – now we all need a bit of extra power.

Having travelled a bit lately, both for work and with family I’ve had just one thing with me on every trip.  The Kinkoo Infinite One.

Now this thing isn’t available at your local retailer, you’ll find it online at $69 (US Dollars) including shipping to your door.

Why would you go to that much trouble when you can buy these battery chargers at service-stations these days?

Two reasons.

Firstly – It’s a good size.  Thin, reasonably light – and the perfect size to actually slip into your back pocket or jacket pocket so you can charge on the go, and most certainly it’s not taking up a lot of space in your baggage.

Secondly, 8000mAh of power inside.  Now some power purists will tell me that you can’t just divide your phone’s battery life into that number to determine the number of charges you’ll get, but let me tell you – if you are searching for emergency extra power at around 20% then you’re going to get likely four or five full charges back to 100%.

That’s a whole lot better than just one extra charge at best.

It’s simple – power in via MicroUSB power out by your phone’s USB cable.  A singe button to turn the power flow on once you’re connected.  Simple and easy.
