Recharge your mobile devices with the Survivor power bank.

One of my biggest frustrations with mobile devices is not having enough power. On any given day, I will find myself having to plug my phone into a power source just to get through the day. Now, I am a heavy mobile phone user. I constantly get emails, texts, and I browse the internet in between times. Some people may not have the same issue I do, but I know that for most, their cell phone is a lifeline. With that in mind, I think most users probably have a backup method for power. I myself use a power bank and my most recent acquisition in that category is the Survivor Power Bank Rugged Battery from Griffin.

Griffin Survivor Power Bank Rugged Battery REVIEW

The battery has a capacity of 10,050 mAh, which is enough to fully charge an iPhone 7 a little over 5 times (the iPhone 7 has a battery that is 1,960 mAh). It has a standard USB (5V/2.1A) power outlet and it charges with a Micro USB port. There is an LED ‘fuel’ gauge with 4 lights in it that indicates how much power is left on the power bank. There is a small LED emergency flashlight located near the power outlets. To use it, you press and hold the power button on the side of the power bank. It’s a nice touch, but it doesn’t put out quite as much light as some other emergency LEDs do. I would have loved to see it be a little bit larger bulb.

The Survivor power bank a lot of power packed into compact package. Because it’s a ‘rugged’ battery it’s perfect for camping or any type of travel. It’s been tested to Military Standard 810G and provides up to a 6.6 foot drop protection. The battery is a little on the heavy side weighing in at 238 grams, which is 100 grams more than an iPhone 7. In addition to being drop-tested, the Survivor power bank is also water and dust resistant. The power ports are covered with a self-sealing flap to keep the insides of the battery clean and dry at all times.

Strangely enough, I did not do any extreme testing of the battery. I did, however, recharge my phone multiple times as I had drained the battery on my phone throughout the day. I was very surprised and delighted to find that the Surivovr power bank not only charged my phone quickly (a lot faster than usual it seems) and there was no overheating of the battery or the phone while it was charging.

It’s a very nice battery and one that I recommend to anyone who needs a tough, efficient battery pack.
