The Powercell 6000+ is a fantastic product that allows users to get extended battery life to their favorite mobile devices. The 6000mAh battery charges through dual 1A and 2.1A USB ports that allow devices to charge to full strength as quickly as possible. The powerful charger can supply devices with enough energy to give a prolonged 25 hours of talk, 20 hours of video content, 18 hours of Internet browsing or 100 hours of audio playback. The device also features a flip out AC prong that easily fits in outlets and can be folded back inside the device to make transport easier for the charger. The great design also includes a prominent power button at the top of the charger to allow users to easily power the Powercell 6000+ on or off.
When testing the Powercell 6000+, we found that it does take a bit longer to fully power up the charger than it does to charge up other devices with the battery. Fully charging a phone and tablet took between 30 minutes and 1 hour, while preparing the battery to charge other devices took more than twice as long. These wait times are to be expected with this type of device, but some users may need to know that the charge isn't instantaneous. The ability to charge two devices at once via the Powercell 6000+'s two USB ports is a big selling point for the device that not all chargers currently offer. We would recommend the Powercell 6000+ from Ventev for any mobile gadget user that takes a lot of vacations or simply can't get enough time out of their devices while away from home.
Dashport r2240 Dual Output Universal Charger:
The Dashport Dual Output Universal Charger is a helpful device for users looking to charge their phone or other mobile device while out in their car. The product has a few features that makes it a product that stands out in a market full of car and battery chargers. The device is small, but stylish. It easily hooks into a cigarette lighter and is small enough to easily place in a car, purse or glove compartment. The device also features two LED lit USB ports. This is important not only for allowing owners to charge two devices at once, but the illuminated ports means devices can easily be hooked into the Dashport at night without the need to turn on other lights and blind the person who is driving. This feature is a definite lifesaver.
The charge times for the Dashport seemed to be a bit longer when compared with the Dashport Dual Output Universal Charger. The Dashport is a much cheaper alternative though, and the device is ready to plug-in and charge from the moment its box is opened. As previously mentioned, the light up USB ports also make a nice impression for gadget users that need a charge when out on the road at night.
The Powerdash r900 essentially offers a combination of features seen in the Dashport and Powercell 6000+. Owners will plug the device into the DC port of a vehicle to begin the charge. Users can then choose whether to allow the internal battery on the Powerdash r900 to charge or whether to go ahead and plug a device into the single 1A USB port located on the device. This gives users the flexibility of charging the device in the car before unplugging to use the charge it received later in the day or simply using the device to run a mobile device while in the car.
The Powerdash r900 does give flexibility typically seen from two different devices, but it does sacrifice some efficiency. The charger seems to take just a bit longer to charge devices if the internal battery on the Powerdash r900 is not already fully charged. Likewise, the 1A USB port simply is not as powerful as the 2.1A USB port seen on the Powercell 6000+. Still, the Powerdash r900 can be purchased for a lower price by sacrificing just a bit of performance, so it's an overall fantastic charger for mobile device users that need a charger for different purposes at different points during the day. It's also worth noting that none of the three devices come packed with any cords for connecting and charging devices.
While the previously mentioned products don't offer cords for charging mobile devices inside their original packaging, Ventev does offer the Chargesync USB Cable in a variety of sizes that makes a perfect purchase for users to make alongside any of the chargers mentioned above. There isn't anything that really stands out about the Chargesync; the cords do come in various sizes ranging from 3.3 feet to 6 feet, and the cables come in many different colors including orange, green, blue, gray, pink, dark purple, red and white, but the cords don't have any special features that make them stick out from similar cables.
The Chargesync cables from Ventev work well with the other chargers and devices the company sells and are compatible with all major phones, tablets and similar mobile devices. The cables do feature a design that resists tangles, but the cables will mostly likely sell due to users needing to add the item onto their purchases from Ventev rather than there being anything special about the products. The cables do their job fine, and the variety of colors means owners can match the cable to their smartphone or tablet case. Add one of these cables onto a purchase from the Ventev store, and you won't be disappointed with the purchase.
