Travel Essentials: Coosh Powerbank Review

Product received at no charge to facilitate my review.
It's no secret that I like to travel but I also love to read. I can go through two or three books on vacation and it's burdensome to carry multiple books in my backpack. I would rather travel with my iPad so I can download plenty of books and have internet access at the airports to check email. It's always a bummer if I forget to charge my iPad before a trip or if my battery dies while on an airplane.

I have portable chargers that work great for my phone but they usually don't have enough power to charge my iPad. I don't like carrying more than one charger so I was thrilled to try the Coosh® High Capacity Powerbank with 13,000 mAh capacity.

This is the perfect travel companion. Not only does it charge my iPad to 100% but it also gives my phone two charges even after using it for my iPad. The first time I used the Coosh® power bank, it charged my iPad from 22% battery to 100% in about four hours. It charged my phone from 16% to 100% in two hours and after charging both, I still had enough power left to fully charge my cell phone again. With dual USB outport, I can even charge both at the same time. It's also compatible with other tablets, MP3/MP4, and games.

I'm excited to finally find my perfect traveling companion. While it is a little heavier than a cell phone portable charger, the fact I don't have to take multiple chargers easily makes up for the extra weight. I haven't used it long enough to comment on the durability but I would definitely recommend the Coosh® power bank for anybody who is on the go a lot.
