GoBat gives you power on the go for all of your portable devices
I have written many reviews touting the benefits and necessities of portable power. We all know by now that no device has a big enough battery for today’s lifestyles and Apple is actually one of the biggest offenders in this category.
So, I’ll skip the why you need it and get straight to the point; the Scosche GoBat 4400 Portable Battery Charger is awesome! First of all, it comes completely charged (regular readers know that I consider this a great feature). Second, it does what it says it will do and does it well. You plug in your device and push the power button. The battery begins charging your device and the blue LED indicators on the front let you know how much power is left in the battery.
The material has a rubber like feel, but it’s nice and allows you to keep a better grip on your device if you’re moving around. With a capacity of 4400mAh, the Scosche GoBat has enough power to fully charge an iPhone 6 two full times. The main output is 1A and will charge your device pretty quickly. In my testing, I was able to gain about 1% every three minutes while I was charging.
As cool as the battery functionality is, GoBat has another great feature – an emergency flashlight. GoBat has an ultra-bright LED light that is housed directly between the standard USB port and the Micro USB port on the battery. This light is great for any use and since it’s on a compact battery pack, you can always have it with you.
The bottom line is that the Scosche GoBat 4400 Portable Battery Charger is a portable battery in a sea of other portable batteries. However, this device looks and feels stylish, while also performing well. It charged my iPhone from roughly 5% every 15 minutes, which is awesome.
