FUEL+ 6000mAh Rechargable Battery

This is an idiot-proof battery. Patriot has made the process from initial opening to charging an easy one. There are so few ways for things to go awry that the FUEL+ line should be purchase for anyone that requires additional charge for the day. There are two ports a 1 and 2.1 A port to allow for a more nuanced method of charging. The 1A plug provides the proper amount of charge for smartphones and small MP3 devices, while the 2.5A option is the go-to for larger tablets and electronic devices with a larger power requirement, or for those devices that can take a quicker-than-normal charge. The beauty of the FUEL+ 6000mAh Rechargable Battery is that it can be charging (plugged in to a USB or outlet) while providing the proper amount of juice for all of your devices.

Two devices were drained to their 0% charge (off) state, including a popular 7 inch tablet and representative Apple and Android phones. A half-hour on the 1A port brought the phones back to life with a considerable charge (30-40%), while the tablet was brought up over the 40% marking. The pass-through feature provided a similar amount of charge for both phone and tablet. The battery is small enough to be able to fit in most pockets and all purses and bags while attached to a device, allowing for passive charging as one walks through a festival, goes on rides at an amusement park, or waits for concessions at a fair or sporting event.

The power button does double duty in that it provides an indicator for the level of charge that the battery possesses as well as being the on/off switch. The only drawback that we can see in regards to this device is that the micro-USB to USB cable that is provided is pretty short. The FUEL+ line comes in a range of mAh classifications from 2200mAh to 8700mAh; the Patriot Memory website contains exhaustive amounts of information about the company’s batteries, RAM, solid state drives, and other additional products. We wholly recommend the FUEL+ 6000mAh Rechargable Battery for anyone that has a difficult time finding or utilizing a charger while away from the domicile. Expect to spend around $30 for the 6000mAh FUEL+ battery from online and physical retailers.
