Innergie PocketCell Duo
The Innergie PocketCell Duo was showcased at CES 2013 back in January 2013. It is the successor to the Innergie PocketCell which is retailing in Singapore for S$79.
The Innergie PocketCell Duo is a very light portable battery charger weighing 132.5g and has a capacity of 6,800mAh. It is capable of outputting 2.1A for each USB port. This makes charging high capacity devices like the iPad, iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 faster than most portable battery chargers. You can even charge 2 iPad at that same time without compromising the charging speed.
A single charge of the Innergie PocketCell Duo will be able to charge your iPhone 5 (1,440 mAh) 4.5 times, Galaxy Note 2 (3,100 mAh) 2 times and Galaxy S3 (2,100 mAh) 3 times.
I am currently using the Sanyo eneloop Mobile Booster which has a capacity of 5,000mAh but unfortunately it can only output 1A and this makes charging the Galaxy Note 2 very slow (I experience this when I am in Hong Kong).
The Innergie PocketCell Duo will be available by end April 2013 for S$139 and if things goes according to plan, it will come included with the Magic Cable with Apple Lightning tip.
In my Innergie Magic Cable Trio – Charge & Sync 3-in-1 USB Cable post which I blogged about last February, I did mention that the magic cable is extremely short. During the media event of the Innergie PocketCell Duo, Daniel Lee, Marketing Director of Innergie did explain to me that it is done on purpose. Shorter cable ensure lesser energy is lost between the charging process also it is designed to be used in conjunction with the PocketCell / PocketCell Duo while charging and using the mobile device at the same time.
