Road warriors like us have a big gripe when it comes to travelling with too many gadgets *that of battery life. But don't let that get your goat, just get a portable battery pack.
The Cooler Master Power Fort is what we kept in our haversack, just so we didn't have to queue up at charging booths. It's small. fits comfortably in the palm of the hand, weighs 132g and could pass off as a businessman's shiny little laptop mouse.
Two cables (mini- and micro-USB) and a pouch for convenience are also included. It charges via a micro-USB port and delivers the same 5V out a standard USB port. But the output current is stepped up from 1 Amp to 2.1 Amps. This allows the 5600mAh battery pack to charge media players. smartphones and tablets faster
Rated to support iDevices. including the iPad, it's easy to use too. Just press the button to start charging and know battery status from the blue LED indicators. The Power Fort is extremely useful for smarties that drain fast while on a data connection and excellent for bluetooth devices that last a little longer than a mayfly. Depending on a smartie's battery rating, you can replenish it twice and still have enough to spare for other thirsty accessories. Over current protection and the ability to hold charge for months at a stretch are other plus points to this capable travel accessory.
