As a blogger, having a portable phone charger is crucial. And when you’re traveling, it becomes even more vital. When I go on business trips these days, I always carry a few backup chargers with me. So when I received a Lumsing 10400mAh Portable Power Bank right before heading on a trip to California, it was perfect timing to put it to the test.
The Lumsing Power Bank is compatible with iPhone, iPad, as well as Android and Samsung Galaxy phones. It has a slim design that fit easily in my purse along with my other gear; it was one of two phone chargers that I brought along for the trip, as I was on my way to The Marine Mammal Center and knew it would be a photo-heavy day. Sure enough, my old charger ran out of juice while I was on a shuttle heading to a rescued sea lion release at Chimney Rock, a very important and beautiful photo op. I pulled out my Lumsing Portable Power Bank for the first time, plugged it into my phone, and it charged it up like a champ – no worries about missing anything important, I was on my iPhone 4S Instagramming photos all day without problems!
According to the product page, the Power Bank is meant to charge an iPhone four to five times before running out of juice; I think that’s a fair assessment, as I’ve noticed that it seems to last and last – I think I’ve only run it down maybe once. It’s harder for me to say the exact number since I’m very careful to recharge every single device I have in my hotel room at the end of each day during a work trip. 😉 To recharge the Power Bank, you simply use the cable included to hook it into a USB port. Because of this, you can’t recharge the charger without also pulling out your laptop, but I think the amount of power I get out of it makes up for that, especially since I carry at least two phone chargers with me at any given time now.
Since receiving the Power Bank, it has traveled with me in and out of four states, powering my phone on press trips and blogger conferences. I don’t put anything into my luggage that I don’t absolutely need, so I feel the Lumsing Portable Power Bank makes the grade as a powerful charger that makes a great addition to my collection of gear. Since this is like my “Backup battery”, the number of times it can charge up my phone is a definite plus.
