Mogix portable battery charger scores huge applause in Craving Tech review

The external power bank has received yet another rave review as tech experts love its dual USB ports.

The Mogix portable battery charger is making tech news once again as it has received another fantastic review, this time from Craving Tech (cravingtech.com), which was taken by the dual USB ports that allow for 2.5A and 2.1A simultaneous device charging.

Craving Tech underscored the fact that many of us depend on multiple gadgets on any given day.

As a result, the review showed that running out of battery has become a problem that is faced from multiple directions instead of only one. It’s not just a matter of running out of juice in a smartphone anymore. Now people are watching the batteries drain in their smartphones (sometimes more than one of them), tablets and even wearables. Therefore, while many people have started carrying a portable battery charger to help to keep their tech gadgets up and running, the Mogix 10,400mAh power bank provides an added advantage by allowing two devices to charge at once.

With the Mogix portable battery charger, two phones or a smartphone and a tablet can charge at the same time.

It was also careful to point out that the typical charger output is usually around 2.1A or even 1A, which means that the Mogix external battery charger is faster than most comparable devices when using its main USB port and it will at least match them when using its secondary port.

The Craving Tech reviewer, Michael Aulia, was able to charge his iPhone 6S and iPad Air at the same time. He was also able to recharge his Huawei Smart Band and his Huawei P8 Lite simultaneously.

Aulia pointed out that the portable battery charger has an automatic shut-off feature, which is handy in saving power when the device is not in use but when it has been accidentally left on. Moreover, it also has LED lights that were found to be useful in knowing just how much charge was actually left within the power bank. That said, with 10,400mAh available, “When I tested the portable charger to charge my devices, I realised that this charger could go on and on without emptying its juice out,” said Aulia.

Will a smartphone battery charge itself one day?

A growing number of reports are indicating that companies – including Motorola Solutions – are working on it.

Because of the broad scale dependence that much of the population has on their mobile devices, when a smartphone battery dies, it can cause people to experience anything from a slight frustration to a large amount of panic.

Companies are now starting to come up with new strategies to make sure mobile device batteries stay charged.

While a considerable amount of this effort is being focused on developing a slimmer, lighter and more powerful smartphone battery, others are working on the challenge of creating devices that don’t need as much power in order to run all the features a user wants for his or her everyday life. Consumers, themselves, have been doing what they can to get the most battery life from their devices, including dumping power draining apps and bloat-ware, when they can, and reducing certain activities – such as streaming video – when they’re on their last bar of battery.

However, some efforts are now focusing on unique strategies such as a self-charging smartphone battery.

Smartphone Battery - Self-ChargeWhile there may be more than one company working on such an effort, Motorola Solutions has found itself in the spotlight for just this reason. At the time of the writing of this article, the claims have only been as official as a rumor, but they are starting to appear in a growing number of places and are pointing to the company’s efforts with increasing detail. It is important to note that it is Motorola Solutions and not Motorola Mobility that has been identified as a part of this development.

Motorola Solutions is the result of a 2011 division of Motorola (the other half being Motorola Mobility). The Mobility side is the Moto and Droid side of the business and is also behind the Moto 360 wearable technology. On the other hand, the Solutions side of the company provides public safety equipment (such as police scanners and radios) and network solutions. Essentially, Mobility is the consumer electronics side, while Solutions is the public side. Solutions, unlike Mobility, was not sold to Google and then Lenovo as was the case with Mobility.

While this type of automatically recharging smartphone battery may seem to have appeal, it is still in a rumor phase and is far from the market. Until then, we will need to continue with careful power saving strategies and good quality external battery charger products.
