TYLT 2.1A-Wall Travel Charger Review

Using the TYLT 2.1A-WALL


I used the TYLT 2.1A-WALL as my travel buddy, taking it with me interstate for a trip away with my wife. It was perfect, as I was able to charge my phone and GoPro up at the same time, without having to worry. Once I was finished and ready to head out for the day, I chucked my portable battery on charge, plugging it into the 2.1A-WALL, so that I had a battery for the late afternoon. It was the perfect combo.


I was able to charge up my Sony Xperia Z2 in a matter of two hours from next to 0% battery, and considering it has a 3000mAh battery, that is impressive. Plugging in my GoPro Hero4 Black Edition and having that juiced up for the day super quick is something I can't complain about either.


The TYLT 2.1A-WALL is also very compact, so it was able to be thrown into my backpack without thinking about making space for it. It's about the same size as a traditional wall plug that comes with your standard smartphone, except you get two USB ports - much better.



What's Hot




TYLT Design: TYLT is a company that makes design a very important part of their products, and it pays off. While design won't win awards for functionality, both go hand-in-hand if the other is done right, too. The 2.1A-WALL, for what it is (which is a simple product) looks great. The packaging is also second to none.




Charge Up Two Devices, Quick: This is one of the better things I liked about the 2.1A-WALL, is that I could charge up two devices at once. On the road, I could plug it in when I checked into my hotel room and have two devices charging. At home on my desk, I had it charging one of my portable batteries and my smartphone at the same time.


What's Not


Only 2.1A Total Output: I would've liked to have seen TYLT push the boundary here, providing two 2.1A output ports, versus the two ports providing a total of 2.1A.



Final Thoughts


TYLT are masters of their craft, and this is no different. Even a small device like the 2.1A-WALL can have TYLT's eye of design go over it, making the entire experience great. From the packaging to the 2.1A-WALL device itself, TYLT knows how to impress.




For those who travel a lot, the 2.1A-WALL is definitely a device you can take advantage of. Charging up multiple devices back in your hotel/motel room while you're out and about doing what you need to do is great. This means you can come back to your room with two portable batteries ready to go, take them off charge and then get your smartphone and camera charged up.


The next day, you've got two full batteries, and two full devices - with the 2.1A-WALL ready to take on another day of charging. Sure it's a small thing, but there are countless uses for it. TYLT, continue to kick ass, OK?

The Bottom Line: For the busy travellers, the TYLT 2.1A-WALL is a great device to take around with you. For those who have a bunch of devices that require charging constantly, this is also for you. TYLT's kick ass out-of-the-box experience is still second to none, even with a simple product like the 2.1A-WALL.
