If You Love Gadgets, You NEED a Good Portable Charger! {Review}

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

I received a PowerStick from Linkon in order to facilitate an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

Our family is made of gadget nuts. We each have a gadget for everything; They help our lives run smoother, help us out in a jam, and give us hours of entertainment. The downside? Power. If your gadget is dead, how helpful is that? I have run out of juice at just the wrong time more times that I can count. So, if you love your gadgets, you need a good portable charger. They're practical and small enough to carry in a pocket or purse without weighing you down. 

I've tried a few portable chargers, but there was always some feature that was missing to be truly useful. I just tried the PowerStick from Linkon and it hit all of the high notes for me. Read on to find out more about it.

From the Amazon Listing:
You know what's the problem with all the regular power banks out there? They never tell you exactly what power level is left - the LED shows two lights but is that 50% or 25% remaining? 
The LINKON Difference
The LINKON PowerStick is the solution you've always been looking for. With LED digital display, you will never have to guess again. Showing the power level of the power bank up to 1% accuracy, you will always be in control. But wait, there is more:
✔ Automatic Charging - Connect the cable and charging begins, it's that simple!
✔ Automatic Shut Down - The charger will automatically turn off after 30 seconds when not connected. Never have to worry about accidentally discharging the battery again.
✔ Aluminum Alloy Casing - Strong and durable shell to ensure the battery charger will accompany you for many years.
✔ Will Not Overheat - When charging or recharging the LINKON PowerStick, it will NOT overheat unlike many other external battery chargers.
✔ Portable for Absolute Convenience - Measuring only 3.5inch long, the LINKON PowerStick will fit comfortably in any pocket or bag.

Never get stranded with a dead battery again! Buy now and enjoy the freedom of staying connected wherever you go with the LINKON PowerStick!

I received my PowerStick quickly. It was well-packaged in a gift-able box. 

The top slides off to reveal the PowerStick (available in Pink, Silver, Black, Green, or Blue), securely nestled in a velveteen holder. 

Pull up the holder to reveal some great accessories: a USB to Micro USB cord, 2 extra adapters for Apple devices, an instruction book, and a carry bag for your charger and extra accessories.

The PowerStick itself is fairly small, but with a weight that says it's well-made. It's not a flimsy plastic housing, but an Aluminum alloy casing that resists corrosion.

This charger does what all other chargers do, which is hold a charge for your devices until needed, but with a difference. This charger has a digital display that tells you when it's full, and when it needs to be recharged. 

This is an amazing and much needed improvement in portable chargers! I have an older charger that I would throw in a bag, but half of the time it would be dead when I needed it; There was no way to tell if it was charged or not.

There are 2 ports in the charger, an "IN" and an "OUT". When the PowerStick needs to be charged, plug the Micro USB end of the cord into the IN port, and the USB end into a laptop or an USB wall charger. When you need to charge a device, use the same cord and plug the USB end into the OUT post, and use the Micro USB end in a phone or other device.

The charger comes with 2 extra adapters that will fit all of your Apple devices. Just fit the adapter onto the Micro USB end of the cord and push until you feel it pop into place.

And you can use your device while it's charging. There's no need to be tethered to a wall socket!
