You are waiting for that all important phone call or, need to make one, and your phone starts blinking the "Battery Low" sign''; there''s no charger or plug point in sight. Sounds familiar? The biggest bane of today''s high compute power and large display smartphones is battery life. The solution, when presented, seems rather obvious: carry an external battery that can charge your phone. Such ''chargers'' have been available for a while now, mostly from no-name brands. Recently, the more recogonised companies started bringing out these emergency chargers. The latest is one from Portronics, the product is called Pico Power. It comes with a micro-USB tip that any can power up any mobile phone with a micro-USB charging port.
Packed with an inbuilt 900 mAh lithium-polymer battery, Portronics claims that the Pico Power can hold a charge for more than 15 months when unused. It can power your device for up to 3 hours (this number is dependent on various factors). It is compact and lightweight, and hence extremely portable.
Here are the key features of the Portronics Pico Power:
- Built-in 900 mAh lithium polymer battery
