In this era of cell phone dependability, we never want to get caught with a drained battery. Mogix makes it easy to avoid the dreaded dead phone experience with their ultra thin 5000mAh portable cell phone chargers that easily fit in your purse, baby bag, glove compartment or even your pocket.
Mogix sent me their Portable Power Bank in both black and white to try out for the blog, and I was immediately impressed by how slim and lightweight they were. The sleek design and 3.8 oz. weight make it easy to stash these in my “mom bag” without adding to its ever-growing bulk. Smaller than an iPhone, but powerful enough to charge any cell phone or small USB-friendly device in a matter of hours, this is definitely a handy little gadget.
The first thing I did was plug it in to make sure it had a full charge. It comes with a charging cable for the power bank, but you use your own regular phone charging cable to connect your phone. They recommend charging it about four hours or just leaving it plugged in overnight. Once the four little lights on the front are all lit, you are fully charged. You can check the amount of charge by pressing the little button on the front. For this particular charger, you can get one to three phone charges out of one battery charge and about 500 charges overall.
Once it was fully charged, I let my phone get down to around 8% left on my battery before I tested it. I used my usual phone cord and plugged it into the USB port on the Mogix charger. I checked it after about 30 minutes and I was already up to 45%. After that, it took about two hours to get a full charge. The good thing is you can use the phone while it’s charging, so no need to wait around for it to finish. After it charged, the battery lights on the Mogix only went down to three, so it appears I could probably get a few charges out of it before needing to recharge.
The battery will shut off on its own and not keep charging, so your device is protected by an auto shut-off and temperature control system. The Mogix also comes with a 90 Day Satisfaction Guarantee and 18 Month Warranty.
It was easy to use, fast to charge and didn’t take up much space. I’ll definitely be keeping one of these stashed in our “go bag” that we take on our bike and park adventures!
