Introduction, Specifications & Pricing
After enjoying most of what Patriot has sent me over the last year or so, I've come to notice just how many devices I use that are USB-powered. Smartphones, tablets, mobile batteries, Bluetooth speakers and so much more - with my PC running out of USB ports, I tend to use my bigger, more powerful mobile batteries to charge everything else. That was, however, until Patriot's FUEL Station Mini arrived.
The Patriot FUEL Station Mini has four USB ports, making it capable of juicing up four devices simultaneously, which is just insane. Two of the ports are 1A, while the other two are full 2.1A ports. The 1A ports are good for charging up tablets, while the 2.1A ports will get your smartphone charged up quicker than you can say 'whippity snap' - or whatever you want to say, really.
Input wise, it takes 100-240V power with its built-in power supply, weighs just 160g (or 0.35 pounds). It's nice and portable, fitting in your hand easily, and better yet - your luggage. You can pick up the Patriot FUEL Station Mini for just $24.99 on Amazon at the time of writing.
Taking a Look Around the Patriot FUEL Station Mini
Now we're going to take a look around the FUEL Station Mini, seeing what we have to work with.
As always, we'll start with the packaging. Patriot provides a nice looking package, that doesn't take up too much space. On the back, we find out the features, specifications, and what you get in the box.
Speaking of what comes in the box, we have the power cord and FUEL Station Mini, and there's also a warranty card and user manual - but I'm sure we can work out how to use it without them, right?
From this angle, we can see that there are four USB ports, the Patriot logo on top, and an activity light in the bottom right-hand corner.
Here we can see the four USB ports, with the first two being 1A ports for phones/tablets, while the last two are full 2.1A ports.
Here we have the back of the FUEL Station Mini, showing off the power port that it requires.
