Product Review: Bolse® AON6 Dual USB Output 5200mAh External Battery Pack High Capacity Power Bank
This Bolse AON6 External Battery is rated at 5200mAh. It comes with 2 USB output ports and one microUSB to charge it. In the box is included a nice and soft brown bag, the 5200mAh battery pack, USB-microUSB cable, USB to multi cable, 4 connectors and a small manual. The device is rated at an Max Output of 2A, but from testing it seems like it splits 1A for each output port.
– Look and Feel
The device itself feels comfy in my hand. It has like a water drop shape that makes it feel good. The battery has 5 blue LEDs that show the actual charge level. They also serve as an indicator of the current level while charging. Below the LEDs there’s a button that works as an “On” switch to start charging your device once connected.
The device took around 3.5 hours to charge using a 2.1A charger. It may take around 6 hours to charge completely using a 1A charger (that’s what’s rated on the box). Once the device replenished I connected the battery pack with my Nexus 4 which has a battery rated at 2100mAh. It took 3 hours and 43 minutes to charge my Nexus 4. This is 20 minutes faster than the stock charger from LG. Once my Nexus was empty I connected it again to the AON6 and it had energy to charge back my Nexus 4 at a 50%. So looks like from the 5200mAh it is rated, 3150mAh were effectively transferred to my smartphone (actually the manual says that the device wastes 30%, so that’s why).
This is the kind of device I will carry to work or college. It will handle situations where I already know I will need just 1 charge and a bit more. Not recommended if you are going on a 7 day trip or something like that. But definitely it will do the job for that unexpected days. It has 4 connectors for microUSB, miniUSB, iDevices and a 3.5mm.
I was provided a device from the manufacturer in exchange of an unbiased review.
