Two Full Battery Charges (at the very least)
It's no secret that Lithium based batteries don't age well. Your smartphone's battery life just gets worse and worse as the days go by.
So how much power do you need to keep your devices going through the day?
I experimented with power banks that only gave me a half of a single charge, and I experimented with power banks that have so much juice they could practically jumpstart your car.
If you're a moderate to heavy phone user, then you're like me.
Several text message conversations, a phone call or two, casual internet browsing and weather checking. And also some coffee break game playing.
My phone is almost two years old, so my battery won't last more than four hours with that kind of use.
An extra two charges is perfect for getting me through the day without worrying about a power source. You can read your ebook on the train ride home without any low battery warnings. Use your smartphone's GPS navigation and still have extra battery life for the way home. You really shouldn't need more than that in a single day.
I even use it to watch Netflix movies in bed. It's much more enjoyable when my iPad isn't tethered to the wall.
That's why it's called the Goldilocks Power Bank:
Not too much power, not too little, but just the right amount for daily use.
The Rugged, Outdoorsy Type
Our Goldilocks Power Bank is built to handle some rough and tumble play.
Toss it into the car or your backpack. Its ridged plastic shell won't scratch as easily as other aluminum type finishes.
Just don't drop it off a cliff. Someone could get hurt that way.
Charge Two Devices Simulatenously
You get two USB output ports on your Goldilocks Power Bank, so you can recharge 2 devices at the same time.
One output sends a 2 Amp charge and the other sends a 1 Amp charge.
You'll use the 2A output for devices with higher energy consumption, like your tablet or smartphone, because it'll charge it up quicker than the 1A. The 1A output is great for lower consumption devices, like your DAK Cam or your Bluetooth to Stereo Upgrade.
The only downside of charging two devices at once is that it'll take longer to completely charge your devices. They'll both charge fine, it just isn't as fast.
