The iPower Xtra is marketed as an energy drink for your device, and the description suits this nifty gadget well.
This power bank is a handy back-up for when your mobile devices are running low on power and is compatible with most smartphones, tablets, and digital devices. I tested it with a Samsung Galaxy S4 and the results were good.
It comes with a USB cable, instruction manual, and a Momax marketing brochure should you be in the market for another external battery pack.
In keeping with the energy drink theme, you pop the lid on your power bank can to attach the USB cable. You have a power button, LED indicators (to show remaining battery life), and input and output ports.
The only small gripe I had was that the 20cm USB cable was a little short, I could have done with few more centimetres.
It comes in black, white, and blue, with the casing of a high quality – making this external battery durable. The price – R499.
When you pick up the iPower Xtra you can feel where your money went – it is solid and well designed. It also has a capacity of 6600mAh, which is useful.
