Yes, another accessory in the Patriot Memory FUEL iON series; we'll be covering the magnetic 2100 mAh battery pack today. If you've read any of our other reviews, you will have noticed that I'm personally a huge fan of this series as a whole, offering you a brilliant alternative charging solution providing you have a supported phone model.
As with every other accessory we review, there's a few criteria and questions that this product will have to fulfil and answer - what does this product provide that the traditional products do not and is it set at a reasonable price point? We've touched on in all of these reviews that the Patriot Fuel iON series has some awesome ideas and implementation, but the price has been just a little too much.
Featuring a 2100 mAh internal battery and the ability to charge compatible devices through the power of magnetic charging, you can expect 99.5% efficiency when compared to regular cable charging. However, if you're looking to lend a hand to a friend, there is also a singular USB output port located on the side of the device.
Thanks to the magnetic connection, this cable will be able to charge your phone at any angle within a 360 degree spectrum, as long as a connection is continued, matching the service offered by every other accessory in this range. You charge this product through magnetic charging, meaning all other accessories that are compatible with your phone will suit this product just fine.
The discharge rate of this device is limited to 1.0A, meaning it's twice as fast as your general USB port, but falls short when compared with a wall-charger or many other portable battery packs.
Pricing & Availability
Setting you back $49.99 with free shipping from Amazon, this product is undeniably useful, but once again a bit pricey.
What's in the box?
The extremely simple package consists of a charging cable, quick-start manual, and the battery itself.
The included USB cable is of adequate length and not quite as thick as the rest of the offerings, meaning you can route it easily and bends in the architecture due to being folded up don't matter as much.
