Power Bank that can Take a Beating

There are a lot of mobile chargers and power banks already out in the market. They come in different sizes, form factors, and battery ratings but they essentially do the same thing — they charge your mobile devices. If there’s one common problem that they have though it’s DURABILITY. A lot of power banks die out after a few months mostly due to wear and tear. They get tossed around in bags or they get accidentally get wet which leads to them getting broke. This is what the Momax iPower Tough 2 tries to address! The Momax iPower Tough 2 is actually IP65 certified which means not only is it water resistant, it can also stand up against dust and shocks! It also doesn’t hurt that it has a huge battery rating of 9,000mAh.

So what makes this so sturdy? It’s all in the build! The Momax iPower Tough 2 has two major components that protect it from external forces. First we have the metallic top and back plates. They come in different colors so just pick the one that matches your personality, lol. Next we have the rubber padding that runs along the sides of the power bank. This obviously is meant to spread the force from drops and also keeps it ware and dust resistant. There are flaps to access the USB and micro USB ports.

The 9,000mAh rating is good enough for 3-4 full charges for your iPhone 5 and around 2-3 charges for your Galaxy S4 or HTC One. It does take a while to charge back up though so if ever this is empty expect at least 4-5 hours of charging before you get it back up to 100%. What we usually do is we just leave it charging overnight.

Over-all the Momax iPower Tough 2 is the perfect power bank for two kinds of people: those who have a lot of outdoor activities and those who are total klutzes, hehe. It’s a bit pricey for Php3,750 but at least you’re guaranteed that you’re getting a high quality product with good battery cells that won’t damage your mobile devices. The Momax iPower Tough 2 is now available in Beyond the Box branches nationwide.

Hi, just want to ask, i bought the same powerbank yesterday, and i noticed that once my iphone is fully charged, if i dont remove my phone from the cable, the powerbank lights stay on, is it really like this? i asked because in my mipow powerbank, the unit (powerbank) auto shuts off (lights off) when the iPhone is fully charged. Thanks in advance 🙂
