TYLT Energi 2K Travel Charger Review
TYLT is a company known for its elegant versions of smartphone accessories, including cases, chargers, and cables. The TYLT Energi 2K Travel Charger is a portable battery pack which can help get your iOS or Android device through a long day of heavy use.
The travel charger packs a 2200mAh battery which will easily recharge your iPhone from 0% to 100%, effectively doubling the battery life of your device. Like a few other devices, the Energi 2K Travel Charger combines a wall charger and a battery pack all in one easy to carry device.
The enclosure measures in at 3″ x 3.35″ x 1.06″ and has a single USB port at the bottom, fold out wall prongs on its back, and a power/battery indicator button on the front. The USB port at the bottom of the device outputs 1-amp of power at about 5-watts. Energi 2K’s 2200mAH battery is ideal for charging an iPhone or iPod, however, it can be used to charge almost any smartphone or tablet.
The travel charger is ideal for those who are always on-the-go, allowing smartphone users to give their devices a quick power boost. On the plus side, Energi 2K’s built-in wall prongs allow you to use the device as a wall charger when you are at home or at work. When the device is unplugged it acts as your very own personal battery pack for your device. The travel charger’s output of 1-amp allows you to charge your iPhone’s (or other smartphone’s) battery quickly.
For the size of the device the internal battery should be slightly larger, allowing users to fully charge smartphones and tablets that contain a battery with a larger capacity. The travel charger does not include a lightning/30-pin/microUSB connector to USB cable in the box. TYLT sells a one-foot sync cable on their website for $29.99, or you can purchase an additional lightning/30-pin cable from Apple for $21.
All in all, the TYLT Energi 2K Travel Charger is a great buy for anyone who travels a lot. The device is also useful if you find that your smartphone’s battery does not get you through a full day of use.
TYLT Energi 2K Travel Charger is available for $39.99 from TYLT’s online store. The device is available in four different colours, including red, yellow, blue, and black.
