    The RP-PB22 is a rechargeable 13,000mAh Li-Polymer battery unit that can then be used to charge a slave device connected to it via USB. Included in the package is the External Battery, two USB to micro USB cables, a user manual and travel pouch. Due to this having two full sized USB ports, you can use any USB cable suitable for your device.

    The RAVPower measures in at 127 x 81 x 22mm and weighs 309g. This has a stylish, two tone matt finish and feels very sturdy in the hand, in part due to the weight of the internal battery and also thanks to the good construction on offer. The unit does not have any rubber grips though, so be wary of placing this somewhere it may slide.
    It features a power button and four LEDs in a single strip on the top to indicate remaining power. On the end it has two full sized USB ports as well as a central micro USB port for recharging. It takes around 15 hours to fully recharge the unit from empty although this may vary depending on power source. There is no supplied charger but the included cable or indeed any other micro USB cable can be used in connection with any USB source. A single tap on the power button will illuminate the LEDs indicating remaining charge.

    From a full charge, 13,000 mAh of portable power is on offer. To put this in an IOS perspective, an iPhone 6 rated @ 1,810 mAh could be fully charged 7 times in a best case scenario although the figure will usually be less due to the inefficiencies of charging. An iPad Air 2 @ 7,340 mAh could be charged almost twice which is an impressive figure in its own right.
    This power bank features both 2.4A & 2.1A USB ports, the former of which is perfect for the more power hungry iPad and you can continue to work on the iPad while it is charging. Two devices can also be charged simultaneously for a combined output of 4.5A which makes this a flexible performer and means both ports will work at their full capacity. The ports are also classed as iSmart which means they will offer the optimal charge for the connected device. One thing I did note during my testing was that regardless of what device you are charging or even if you are recharging the RAVPower itself, it remained cool at all times with no sign of heating up. This is a welcome bonus when it comes to portable devices and batteries.

    The final addition to this power bank is the inclusion of an LED torch feature. Simply hold down on the power button for 1 second to activate this bright light which is a handy feature and more and more power banks seem to be including such a function.

    For me, travelling with my usual compliment of gadgets makes a product like a power bank a sensible purchase. All my portable gadgets from phones, tablets, music player, ebook reader and camera can be charged via USB and having the ability to do this when away from a fixed power source gives real peace of mind. The RAVPower RP-PB22 delivers a high power capacity and flexibility of dual charging in a portable and well priced package.

    I got this from http://www.amazon.co.uk/RAVPower®-1...qid=1435664526&sr=8-2&keywords=ravpower 13000
