I heard about this new Nitecore powerbank/charger a while back, and finally have one in my hands. Well not right now; I’m typing right now. Who can hold a powerbank and type at the same time?
Anyway, I wanted to give this one a test, and the nice people over at Illumn sent this one for me to play around with. Read on for some thoughts!
I was in gross need of a USB port with QC3 capabilities for a charger or two I was testing. I got super lucky that XTAR has this product just out, and they dropped one in the mail to me. This power brick has three USB ports, one of which has QC3 capabilities. The other two have output up to 2.4A, and there’s also a USB-C port! Read on for my testing and thoughts!
I finally got a message in to someone at Armytek, and they sent this Handy C1 Pro as a first review item. This is a single-bay, Li-Ion/NiMH (!!) charger, with a USB-out function! Read on for my first review of 2019, on an item I’ve had for almost 3 months!
I tend to like Rofis lights. They’re well made, very functional, and more often than not, just neat little lights. So I was excited when this MR30 showed up in the mail – the MR70 is still my go-to powerbank travel light. The MR30 is smaller with the same capacity, and loses the side light (which I never really used anyway). I’m excited to put it to the test!
There’s another entry in the …. let’s call it the “USB dongle charger” list. This is the Nitecore LC10, which is similar to other dongle chargers, but adds a few new features! There’s an in-line lantern, and the poles are reversible on this charger. Read on for more!
Vortex contacted me out of the blue one day, about these review lights. I wasn’t terribly interested except that 1) their lights have orange accents and 2) the lights have a charging base. Normally that might not be a big deal but as I understood it, the light would come on if there was a power disconnect to the base. That’s a pretty big deal. Read on to see if that’s how things went!
I reached out to Xtar regarding a couple of their chargers. Particularly the PB2, their newest charger/powerbank. Looks awesome on paper! They also sent over a Dragon, which I’ll have some thoughts on later. For now, the PB2.
