Batterie Externe X-Moove Powergo Rugged

Today, I propose a slightly different test of what I used to you: an external battery.

When I test a jacket, pants, or shoes, I really didn’t need to explain what it does. But I’ll do it here, because everyone doesn’t necessarily know what is an external battery and how it works. How it you don’t know either for pants?;

A battery outside allows to recharge electric or electronic devices. X-Moove Powergo Rugged battery I tested here can charge a majority of rechargeable devices by USB. She has been designed to withstand shocks, the run-off of liquids, dust, extreme temperatures, in short, to conditions encountered on the trail.

For those who wonder what is the use for a hike, it maybe useful to recharge a mobile phone, a smartphone, a GPS, a camera, a camera, an e-reader, tablet or even a headlamp example. I’ll be back a little later on uses, because if you know me through the blog, you probably know that I am fan of light hiking and I do not carry unnecessary things.

I didn’t know at all X-Moove before the test, but I had the opportunity to meet some of the team a little by chance. Clement, the communication of the team X-Moove Manager contacted me to ask me if I was interested to try this new rugged external battery.

I accepted telling me it might be of interest to you and at the moment where I gave him my address so he sent it to me, he realized that I lived 5 minutes walk from their office. I have done them so visit and in addition to this coincidence, it turns out that we even have friends in common. Amazing all these coincidences sometimes.

Immediately see a bit more in detail how this external battery works.

How the X-Moove Powergo Rugged external battery?

We’ll especially distinguish two main functions: charge a device and charge the external battery. Unsurprisingly, it cannot load a device without being itself recharged!

Charge a device

To charge a device, simply to connect it to the external battery and press the left button with a power logo. It is possible to use one of these two cables:

  • The cable usually used for the device into a USB port, or
  • The (micro-USB) cable supplied with the external battery and one of the adapters provided if necessary.

As a waterproof flashlight, the indicator light then flashes to confirm the load and indicate the remaining charge in the external battery. Once the camera is loaded, simply switch off the battery by pressing the power button and unplug the cable.

The external battery

The X-Moove Powergo Rugged battery recharges on a USB port. E.g. just hook it up to a computer. You can follow recharging with a light indicator. Once the battery has been recharged, just turn it off.

The cable being used is the one provided with battery (micro-USB cable). It also allows to charge devices (but used in the other direction).

It is also possible to recharge the battery sector, but this requires a USB/AC adapter, which is not provided with the battery.

Other functions

Laser

A laser is built into the battery. Simply press the start/stop button for 3 seconds to turn it on. To turn it off, same thing, simply press the start/stop button for 3 seconds.

Pocket/signal SOS flashlight

Simply press the button on the right (with a logo lamp) to turn on an LED. By pressing it again, it turns off the lamp.

Hold this button pressed 3 seconds, a light signal SOS in Morse code turns on. To stop the signal simply press the button again for 3 seconds.

Accessories

Now that you know the various functions of the X-Moove Powergo Rugged, see some of the accessories that go with.

  • A micro-USB cableto charge the battery and dealing with a micro-USB port devices.
  • Adapter micro-USB/mini-USB to charge devices using a mini-USB port with the supplied cable.
  • An adapter micro-USB/connector 30 pins(compatible Iphone 4, 4s, Ipod classic and other) to charge with the supplied cable devices using this port.
  • “Ears”to hang the battery if needed.
  • A cacheto protect USB and micro USB ports.

Test conditions

Now that the presentations are made, see quickly how I tested it. I started with me taking a few times ;-), and then I took her on a trip to the Morocco and then on several weekends.

So to be clear, I don’t not stick it under water, thrown out the window or shaken in a packet of flour to test its robustness and resistance to water but I tried to use it in “normal conditions”.

She had a few shocks while traveling in various bags. She has tasted the cold of some nights in a tent and the hot behind the windows of a car in full sun. She has not faced more than that to the water but she has tasted the joys of condensation – that you probably know if you’re used to bivouac.

Nothing extremely violent, but the conditions that would surely not please to a ‘standard’ battery designed for use rather urban.

These are the technical characteristics as they are given by the manufacturer.

  • Capacity: 5600 mAh.
  • Weight: 140 g without cable (verified with my scale).
  • Dimensions: 102 x 56 x 28 mm (verified by my rule).

  • Thermo-moulees hullsfor warm and cold resistance.
  • Technologies: HiSpeed charging™, ShockProof™, ThinPower™, Powershield™, Smartadapter™, SmartLed™.

Performance

I imagine that, like me, This battery performance you are interested in: number of reloads possible, load speed, etc. I have divided this section into two: my test results and the results of the tests of X-Moove.

Note : Attention, because performance is different depending on the devices you use, but these results should give you a good overview.

My test results

I’ve done tests with my smartphone (which incidentally is not so smart than that).

  • My smartphone on sector charge time: 2 h 25.
  • My smartphone with the external battery charge time: 2 h 20.
  • Capacity: a little less of 3 full charges from my smartphone.
  • The external USB battery charge time(laptop): 5 h 30
  • The external mains battery charge time(with a sector/USB adapter): 5 h 30
Results given by X-Moove
  • Charge time: 0% to 80% in 1 hour with Iphone 5 S. It’s the best use, the remaining 20% require more energy.
  • Autonomy: spend 8 h without external battery at 25: with the X – Moove Powergo Rugged for an iPhone 5 S.
  • Capacity: 3 full recharges an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy.
  • Life expectancy: the X-Moove Powergo battery is designed to hold 500 full cycles – a cycle being a load of 0% to 100%.

The most

Here is a small list of what I enjoyed testing this external battery:

  • Good finishing and impression of strength.This is the first point that I made in leaving the battery from its box.
  • Easy to use.Also, you can see if my description of his operation was clear enough.
  • Quick.Almost as fast as on sector with regard to me.
  • Saves in autonomy.When we don’t have access to electricity, we gain in autonomy, because we know that we can easily recharge its electric and electronic devices. It avoids to “power supplies” and it’s very nice when travelling or when you spend time outside without access to electricity.
  • Reliability.No problem running up to now, no sign of fatigue or degradation. The battery is guaranteed one year.
  • Allows to gain freedom and save some money.It avoids for example pay for electricity in a campsite to simply charge his phone or even sleep in a place especially because it needs access to electricity.
  • Compatibility with many devices.The X-Moove team has tested a lot of devices and I have personally tested the battery on a phone, a smartphone, GPS, an mp3 player and a reader with no problems.
  • Resistance to shocks, dust, water and temperatures ‘extremes-though, as I mentioned, I have not tested to its limits. It allows not to be afraid to damage by living outside.
  • So convenient that it I sometimes even use it at home instead of using a conventional charger. The remaining charge indicator is a big plus point.
  • Relatively compact and lightweight for the ability- even if it is difficult to compare its weight and footprint with other similar batteries because most of the existing batteries are not robust.
  • The adapters are very significantto avoid having too many cables.

The less

As always, I did the tour of the little things I liked less by testing the battery:

  • Buttons that light up alonewhen the battery is in a bag. It of annoying because when the lamp or laser lights, this drain on the battery (even if it’s quite slow).Therefore, pay attention to the place where you put the battery.
  • Cache that comes off a little too easily.It opens itself when the battery is in a bag, and the battery is less well protected when that happens.
  • Not really useful secondary functions.Regarding me, I find that the lamp, laser and the SOS signal are not really useful functions, but rather of the gadgets.

Uses for which I would recommend this battery

I said a few words on this subject in the introduction, I like light hiking, and this is why I don’t currently use not this battery for my rambling. I have not really the use because I use daily electric or electronic equipment.

I’ll be might need to use it, if I make a long hike or a hike that requires frequent use of electronic or electric equipment (and thus their reloading).

What pushed me to do this test in the first place, is that I know that some people need to recharge devices on a hike. For these people, the battery can be a good solution. I am thinking of those who do a lot of photos, videos or intensely use their GPS or even their smartphone to move.

If you are in this case, you can see if this battery’s worth compared to one or more additional batteries for your devices. Remember to take into account the weight, size, autonomy, cost, versatility, etc. Also be careful, some devices are not rechargeable by USB.

Even if I do not use it on a hike, I found it very convenient traveling (where the weight is less a problem) or on weekends when I had no access to electricity. It allowed me to be more self-sufficient and less dependent on electricity. It’s really a use for which I would recommend this battery. I am thinking of people who sleep in a car or a recreational vehicle or who are camping without electricity.

Although I have not tested for that, I think that the battery X – Moove Powergo Rugged can be also very practice when hiking long term, in order to gain autonomy.

Conclusion

You can imagine if you had the courage to read so far, I am very satisfied with the X-Moove Powergo Rugged external battery, and I use it quite regularly. It’s something that I recommend if you ever useful.
