Powerocks Magicstick 2800mah Universal Extended Battery Review

​I was recently contacted by Powerocks asking me if i'd be interested in trying out their Magicstick power bank, I gladly accepted and been using it extensively  for past few weeks.

Opinions might vary on looks, but to me personally Magicstick looks great. It comes in a 4-inch cylindrical design with brushed aluminum finish and weighs about 2.6 ounces. I liked the fact that its small and light weight. After-all whats the point of having a portable charger you can't carry around with you.
There's a status indicator led ring on one end that shows you current charge left by flashing different colors, on another end there is a micro-USB port and a standard USB port.

Using the device is pretty straight forward, you connect your smartphone's cable  to the USB port (there's a micro-USB cable included) and that's it. Magicstick would then charge the connected device like any wall charger would.

There's one thing to remember though, since the output current is 1amps some beefier devices might take a little longer to charge. To give you an idea here are output current of some common chargers:
  • Computer's USB Port: 5V 0.5A
  • Amazon's Kindle Charger: 5V  0.85A
  • iPhone Wall Charger: 5V 1A
  • iPad Wall Charger: 5.1V 2A
The 2800mah battery is adequate to bring a modern smartphone like iPhone 5's dead battery to life more than once. Less power-hungry devices like wireless headphones, portable media players, e-readers can be charged several times before draining the battery.

Magicstick can be recharged using microusb port and included usb cable, it takes about 5 hours to charge it completely for next use.
