Warcraft Power BanksAug. 9, 2018
Depending on how often you use your mobile throughout the day (I'm looking at you Pokemon Go fans), these things can be a god send.
I myself am not a heavy mobile user, however, there are times that I do forget to charge my phone. So when I do go to use my phone it is normally for a pretty good reason... though the number of reasons have dropped since the WoW Armory app lost its auction house capabilities. To resolve this problem, I ended up purchasing a power bank with just over 10,400mAh, which gives me quite a few charges for my Nexus 5X. Now I just keep it in the glove box of the car, so when ever I am running low on battery I can just plug it in or take it with me.
Each of these power banks comes with x2 USB 2.0 slots, letting you charge multiple devices at the same time. This feature is quite common on power banks, but what's great about these is that both ports are capable of a high charge rate. One at 5V/2.4A and the second at 5V/2A. Normally when I see multiple charge points on these things the first port is great, normally 5V/2.4A, but the second is normally quite poor, usually around 5V/1A. I know my power banks second charge port is the latter so it may aswell not be there if you are intending to use it on a mobile or a tablet.
Not sure how these numbers affect your purchase? Generally speaking when you purchase a brand new mobile, the charger that comes with it is quite decent and should be at or around the 5V/2.4A mark. I find the cheaper chargers that you can buy online or from a convenience store tend to have a lower charge throughput, around 5V/1A. Try and stay away from these lower specced chargers unless your device actually calls for it.
Like most power banks these themselves are charged through a micro-usb slot, it does not state that it comes with one, though I would assume it does. If it doesn't you'll more than likely have one lying around somewhere, micro-usb is quite a common charger cable.
Just to give you an idea on the battery specs, the latest Samsung Note 9 has a 4000mAh battery. This is huge, especially when you consider one of its competitor's the iPhone 8 plus with a 2691 mAh battery.
ThinkGeek currently has them on sale with up to 56% off. There are 3 different options to choose from, unfortunately there are no dazzling red Horde options left in stock, although they do still have the Doomhammer.
The smallest option, the Stormwind Shield should get at least 1 full charge for most mobiles out there today.
Doomhammer - 13400 mAh - $39.99 - True to it's self in game this thing packs some power.
Full specs are available on ThinkGeek
