External battery for iPhone has long ceased to be just an accessory for many it is an indispensable device for every day, because thanks to it is impossible to stay connected if you find yourself far from an outlet. I was even a few of these batteries, and during that time noticed that cheap Chinese batteries there are at least two disadvantages: the stated capacity at times different from the real, and they are made in haste. But the main inconvenience was to carry two cables: Lightning to charge iPhone and micro-USB (or Type-C), in order to charge the battery.

So I decided to get rid of a few old external battery packs — some have sold on “Avito”, others to somewhere else, gathering dust. In the end I opted for a device that is charged via the Lightning cable, and this wire I can use to charge your iPhone or iPad (I have a tablet of the 7th generation Type-C). The name of this battery Rombica NEO Voyager: it has two outputs for charging (standard USB Type-C), which allows you to simultaneously charge two devices, plus there are Protocol support fast charging, including the QC3.0 and PD3.0.

Design Rombica NEO Voyager

Externally, NEO Voyager very stylish. On both sides of the case has a texture under the skin and a metal frame with perforation to let go of do not want, and fingerprints of such coverage does not collect. Quietly located on top of the manufacturer’s logo, the back technical information. But the main advantage of this external battery before the other is able to charge from any cable, whether it’s Lightning or USB Type-C. the Latter, incidentally, comes in the box with the device.

Ports USB Type-C and Lightning is located next to the usual USB connector on the bottom. On the sides symmetrically placed led indicator that tells the charge level of the external battery, and the power button.

Why you need an external battery?

With this battery you can charge both smartphones and tablets, iPods, digital cameras, even portable game consoles. Increased capacity allows you to take it on a long journey, and with the built-in protection for safe charging of devices I’m not worried that during the process with the same iPhone that something will happen. By the way, the bag unit can be conveniently locked with the small leather carabiner clip to the metal frame.

For me the main advantage of this decision is that with no need to carry two cables. It is enough to take one Lightning and use it for charging iPhone and to replenish the charge level of the battery. With such capacity it will have to do infrequently, but still nice, when the bag leaves more free space.

Where to buy external battery

Is Rombica NEO Voyager about 2 500 rubles — in my opinion, quite a reasonable price for a quality device with such capabilities. Now many manufacturers have gone mad and sell supposedly “premium” battery for 5-6 thousand rubles, frankly do not understand. Your instance is found in M. Video, leave the link below.
