Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:
The packaging for the iJuice is a nice looking box with plenty of information on it about the product inside. Once you get it opened and unpacked you’ll find the battery, micro USB cable and user guide. The micro USB cable is used for charging the battery itself and can be used for charging your stuff too.
The battery seems well made, it has a metal casing and a clip on the side. The iJuice is about 3.75 inches long, it’s round and it’s almost an inch in diameter so it’s very portable and won’t take up much space at all.
On one end you’ll find the standard UBS port for charging your stuff and then the micro USB port for charging the battery itself.
The first thing you’ll need to do is charge the battery and there’s an LED on it to let you know it’s charging.
For testing I charged my Samsung Galaxy S6 Android phone and it seemed to work fine. It was a bit slower than normal but I didn’t expect fast charging either. There’s an LED that lights up when charging to let you know it’s working.
Summary and Comments
The Ombar iJuice is a simple product but it can come in handy to give you extra power when you need it most.
It’s not a bad little battery, and yes it’s small making it very portable so you can easily take it with you on the go.
It works fine but it is slow to charge your devices, then again I don’t think anybody expected it to be a fast charger either.
It is what it is and it’s fine really, it works.
DragonSteelMods gives the Ombar iJuice a 4.5 out of 5 score.
+Small and very portable
+Simple to use
