When you’re playing with all your many tech gadgets, do you ever find yourself saying, “We need more power!”? Like a dramatic moment in film, the silly battery just gives out, leaving you hanging on level 32 of Candy Crush with nowhere to go. We’re here to help you increase your power by reviewing and giving away a RAVPower Luster Series external power bank.
And, it has a flashlight!
In the emerging portable charging device market, RAVPower is a newer mover and shaker, and with the Luster Series Power Bank, they’ve brought a less expensive option to users. The external battery is about the size of a roll of nickel coins and powers through a USB cable, which is included with your purchase.
With 3000mAh capacity, you can get as much as 6 hours on an iPhone 5, and 8 hours on other iPhones or Android smartphones. We found that you rarely get the full 6-8 hours, but 4-5 hours can be expected.
The distinguishing characteristic of the Luster Series is that it also has a 3 mode flashlight function: high/low beam and strobe). It also has an automatic power on/off function, so it really is just plug and play; no more forgetting to turn off your battery pack.
RAVPower has a variety of external battery chargers at a range of prices as well if you need to increase your power even more. These power banks are great for those who travel for business or use their mobiles devices for more than recreational use.
The Luster Series comes in gold, black, silver, pink and blue, and you can find it on sale at RAVPower website, Amazon, Newegg for $15 and up, depending on site.
