Hue Stik Ultra Sleek 2600 mAh Power Bank Review

What's Hot

 

Sleek styling: The aluminum exterior and awesome red battery indicator LED's make for a great looking and feeling product.

Strong flash light: The flash light is certainly bright and doesn't use much power.

 

The button: Better than any other I've tried, the function button is big, easy to press and well placed.

 

What's Not

 

The shape: It's an awkward and odd shape, meaning you should count this out if you're looking to use it as a pocket device.

The capacity: With only 2600 mAh in the bank, there are many other offerings out there with similar sizing that offer a greater capacity.

 

Input and output limitations: This product is limited to 1A input and 1A output, meaning you can't charge it extremely fast nor discharge it quickly. Many battery packs of today offer up to 2.5A output modes, meaning you can quickly charge your products on the go.

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

The first impressions were great, however, I was let down upon further investigation. The 1A output mixed with an awkward structure means that the striking nature and sleek design are negated completely.

If they could cram a 2.1A output and 4000 mAh capacity into a similar package, I would have no issue recommending this product wholeheartedly for a handbag, backpack or car-stored product, however, the lack of features ensures it comes up short. A slight saving grace is the tiny price point of $16.99, however, it still doesn't help me push past the limited specifications.

The Bottom Line: Looking sleek, sexy and streamline, the Hue Stick Ultra Slim H260 mobile portable charger falls short due to a small capacity and slow charging speed.
