A Closer Look




The retail packaging is nice and simple, showing off that beautiful yellow color both on the battery, and the packaging. The front even teases you that the FUEL+ inside is "pre-charged & ready to go" which is a nice touch.




Outside of the box, we have the FUEL+ charger and its micro USB to USB cable.




Another shot of the FUEL+ from the top.




Here we have the two USB output ports, the first 2.5A for fast-charging, the second 1A.




On the opposite side, the micro USB port to get it charged up.




On the right side of the FUEL+, we have the power button and four LEDs that show you the charge left in the device. First light is 25%, second is 50%, third is 75% and the final LED you guessed it - 100%.




And again, with the lights off, showing off the beautiful green LED inside of the yellow FUEL+ charger.



Using the Patriot FUEL+ - Yellow is my New Favorite Color


While using the Patriot FUEL+, I had two of my Sony devices on hand: the Xperia Z2 smartphone, and Xperia Z2 tablet. Both devices have pretty large batteries, but last all day. What I like to do with my devices is use them down to around 20-30%, and then charge them up to full again: something I did on the FUEL+.


I was able to get my Xperia Z2 smartphone right down to 15%, and charge it back up to full just on three times with the FUEL+. The FUEL+ has 9000mAh of battery inside, while my Xperia Z2 has a 3000mAh battery inside it, perfect for around, but not quite three full charges. The LEDs on the side are quite handy, with a quick press you know where you stand with how much battery you have left inside of the FUEL+.


The yellow color really stands out, with a few people actually asking me about the "yellow thing on my table" when I was out at dinner, or waiting in the airport for my next flight out.
