2 weeks ago, I was helping Li Xiang to look for eneloop rechargeable batteries for her office but to my surprise, I could not find any at all at all major electronics stores in Funan and VivoCity. I was wondering did they leave the Singapore market or their batteries sell so well that all the stores are out of stock (I was hoping the later). Many of my friends and I love eneloop batteries!
But luckily, it was just temporarily out of stock (I hope) and when I went back to Funan’s Challenger last week, there was plenty of stocks!
The IonBank 5k has a battery capacity of 5,000mAh and has two integrated cables, one of them is either the Lightning or Micro USB cable and the other is a normal USB cable to charge the battery pack. It also has a spare USB port to charge another USB device.
In my blog post about Panasonic Mobile Booster QE-QL101 last year, I did mention about the large capacity portable battery from Panasonic which has a capacity of 10,260mAh. I did not manage to find that in Singapore. Instead, I saw it in Thailand and I bought it for TH฿3,990 (S$160.40), and after a 7% VAT refund, it cost about S$150.
Don’t let its massive physical appearance deceive you. It is pretty light weighing at 490g. It is slim as well, and the thickness is almost the same as a standard USB port.
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.
Last week on the 12th December 2012, eneloop announced two new limited-edition ‘eneloop tones’ rechargeable battery packs. The eneloop uomo for men in enigmatic shades of purple, grey, black and white; and eneloop rouge for women in scintillating hues of pink.
There are 8 glittering AA batteries in each Eneloop Glitter pack and each battery has a capacity of 1,900mAh (1.2V) and can approximately last through 1,800 recharge cycles. The batteries are capable of retaining 70% capacity even after five years of storage.
