External Battery for Camping

Good props for mobile (keyboards for computers and tablets, screen protectors …), Zagg will obviously not passed on the lucrative market for external batteries. Its Power-Amp series thus seeks to combine manufacturing quality, technology and autonomy. The Power Amp 18 biggest capacity of the manufacturer wants, he bluntly accessory for camping.

Presentation

Power-Amp 18 is in so much as an external battery for smartphones and tablets that as a flashlight for backpackers. A little in the way of the Choetech TC7 , a 000 mAh battery provides 18 energy needed to power the LEDs and can also charge up to 3 devices simultaneously thanks to the USB ports on the bottom of the unit.

The Zagg Power-Amp 18 retails at around € 100 on the manufacturer’s website and in most webmarchands.

Ergonomics

Let us say right away, because of its positioning a little hybrid, the Power-Amp is clearly not to be counted among the most compact mobile batteries or lighter (345g on the scales). An IEC Technology B30224 , for example, offers more capacity in a smaller body. However, as high capacity lamp torch, the product is very successful. Its round shape gives it a nice grip, especially as the gum that covers the upper half of the unit hangs efficiently and allows assured use.

A rubber strap also allows users to tighten the cables around the body of the lamp to store efficiently without tangling. It also allows to hang the entire vertical lamp by passing the strap through the ring present at the end of the device. Note that, unlike the Choetech TC7 where it was necessary to unscrew the top, the USB ports found their place here behind a rubber cover and can be used along with the lamp itself.

Simply pressing the power button lights the waterproof torch “classic” double lights the LED ribbon and support triple flash the LEDs. At three meters distance, the light intensity of the LED is approximately thirty lumens. Not enough to blind a camper, but plenty to find his way in the forest.

Autonom
To paste the product positioning, Zagg boarded his lamp battery announced 18 000 mAh, a story can easily recharge the phone 3 or 4 times during the stay. This capability is announced in 3.7 V. To paste the values corresponding to a smartphone charging, we must express it in 4.7 V, giving us 14,170 mAh of total capacity.

In fact, in our tests, we found an effective capacity of 12,553 mAh, a difference of just over 11% of the total announced.A delta still disappointing for a device of this size. Besides the battery will power the LEDs and potential mobile devices connected via USB. As for the issued intensity, it never exceeds 1.3 A; not enough for the load so fast.

Power-Amp 18 can thus reload a bit more than 7 times a iPhone 6 S, 5 times a Galaxy S6, 4 times a LG G4 , and 1.7 times a iPad Air 2. The accessory requires a good dozen hours to fully recharge.

Conclusion

In the end, the Power-Amp Zagg is clearly first thought as a flashlight before an external battery. The difference between the actual capacity and that announced a little disappointing, the output power too, but overall, the multifunction promise of the device is held and the serious and successful construction makes it a useful accessory for backpackers.
