Introduction, Specifications, & Pricing
I received a package from GOTTA around a month ago, but with my busy home life schedule (having two kids under four chews up some serious time), and travelling to the U.S., I only got around to reviewing these chargers recently. GOTTA is a new to me, and most likely new to you as well, so let's introduce the company before we dive into the review.
GOTTA sells a few products, including the mobile batteries in their "Boost" lineup, with a "WYSIWYG" tag stating that you are guaranteed to get the advertised mAh out of their batteries. GOTTA also sells portable storage, and storage cards, but we will focus on the batteries today.
What we have today, are the three Boost chargers: Boost 2600, Boost 4500, and Boost 5500. Each of these chargers has a different style, so they're not all the same look and feel, which is a great touch from GOTTA.
When it comes to pricing, GOTTA is pricing the batteries at a little above average, but we'll find out later in the review if we think they're worth that slight premium. The Boost 2600, Boost 4500, and Boost 5500 have MSRPs of $29.99, $39.99, and $49.99, respectively.
Taking a Look Around the GOTTA Boost Batteries
Let's start with the Boost 2600, which I think is the best looking of all of the GOTTA chargers we have here today. The Boost 2600 features a beautiful black, gloss front, with a touch control for on/off abilities, and a battery indicator to the left. It's also super slim, coming in at just 9mm thick.
The GOTTA Boost 2600 only outputs at 5V/1A, with input set at 5V/1A also. It takes around five hours to charge, which is slow; I think GOTTA could've provided 2A here, which would've been much better. The 1A output is a real downer, as it'll charge your phone up much slower than the slew of 2A or 2.5A chargers out there.
The GOTTA Boost 4500 cranks things up a notch, offering a 4500mAh internal li-polymer battery, two USB outputs (1A and 2A), and an LED flashlight function. The look of the Boost 4500 is unique with the checkerboard style design on the front, which is really unique for a portable battery.
The Boost 4500 features two outputs (5V/1A and 5V/2A), which means you can charge two devices at once. The 2A output allows you to charge your tablet, or capable smartphone much quicker than the 1A port on the Boost 2600 would charge it. Charging time for the Boost 4500's 4500mAh internal li-polymer battery is around eight hours or so.
Finally, we have the Boost 5500, which looks like its sibling, the Boost 2600. I'm loving the black gloss look, and even though it has a much-increased li-polymer battery, it is only 13mm thick. The touch control makes an appearance again, and two USB outputs are available for charging two devices at once.
The two USB outputs offer the same charging capabilities of the Boost 4500, with 5V/1A and 5V/2A, giving you the ability to charge two devices at once. With the Boost 5500, you can charge your smartphone or tablet up with 2A, which is much, much faster than 1A. The charging time for this device is around eight hours, which is similar to that of the Boost 4500.
