Unboxing and handling :
This Power Pouch is an external battery hidden in a pouch. The battery as well as the pouch are really well made.
The pouch has one part closed by a zip. This part contains the battery. The other part is a simple pouch with a strap to keep the smartphone in place.
The zip’s quality is really good ; it’s cursor is strong and has a big “ring”. Unfortunately it is not a carabiner, it would have been very convenient and truly in the nomadic spirit.
The battery’s quality is really good as well. And if you want to take it out of the pouch you will not have to worry about it. It has a (short) USB cable used for charging it, an USB plug to charge any device that accept USB power and a micro USB cable (once again short) for charging your smartphone (Note: Power Pouch exist also with Apple Lightning connector). 5 small blue LEDs are next to a Power button.
This overall quality is really impressive.
The battery capacity is 6000 mAh. This allows me to do 2 full charges of a Galaxy S4. The remaining power allowed me have a 50% charge. The battery automatically starts when you plug a device: a really helpful behavior which makes the Power button almost useless.
Actually, it is only useful for forcing the shutdown of the battery of for checking the remaining power (for saving energy, the LEDs are not always on).
The micro USB cable is a little bit too short and it makes laborious connecting the device.
The same goes for the USB cable : its 5cm force you to let the battery “flying”, attached to the plug. After a certain period this may damage the cable and make the battery unusable.
A really powerful battery with an amazing quality. A high-end product… Unfortunately there is few design flaws.
