There are a lot of different portable power packs out there on the market, some of which are very good, and others not so good. It’s all down to the quality of the components of course, and some of the cheaper models definitely cut corners, which can end up creating problems.
Which is why this RCE External Battery is interesting. It’s designed to be a high quality product, which you can probably tell by the carbon fiber casing. The unit uses quality Panasonic battery cells, and features a useful LCD readout which displays things like battery temperature, capacity and output.
The product can output both 5V x 1 amp and 2.1 amp from the twin USB outlets, which should be enough to feed the hungriest tablet computer, phone or other USB charged device. It also features overcharge, overheat and short circuit protection, which is good to know when you’re connecting up your precious gear. Priced at $162.00 in shiny or matt finishes.
