You won’t find any unnecessary packaging when opening the Power Plus 3, as it comes with just the essentials: the power bank, a micro USB cable and a separately packaged Lightning / micro USB cable. We’ve tested many similar devices from other companies and have found the construction as well as the design, especially the matte white casing, of this unit to be top quality. The unit comes fully charged and works right out of the box. More information.
Even after a few tumbles onto the hard floor, the unit functioned like new. For those wondering, yes, the battery cells are made in Japan (Panasonic lithium-ion) and the best we’ve tested yet for charging. While other companies claim that their power banks can recharge smartphones 5-times or more, this one lived up to its promise with the iPhone 5S and Nexus 5. We also tried charging an iPad Mini (2.5-times) and iPhone 6 Plus (4.5-times).
Dual charging was a breeze, thanks to its 5V / 2.4A and 5V / 1A ports. Simply plug your devices in, press the power button, and you’ll be ready to charge. To juice up the unit itself, just use the micro USB “In” port on either a computer or a wall plug. There are 4 bright white LEDs on the front to indicate just how much power is left in the Power Plus 3.
For a quality, pocket-sized power bank that can go anywhere, and survive a few mishaps, look no further than cheero’s Power Plus 3. Everything from the sleek, minimalist design to the high quality battery cells, make this a must have gadget for mobile warriors who always find themselves on-the-go. This is definitely going in our everyday carry bags, as you never know when you’ll need some extra power.
