Review of the DIGIPOWER ChargeCard
Mobile phones have become an essential part of our daily lives. Practically everyone keeps a mobile phone with them at all times. However, even in this age of top-notch technologies, all it takes is a dead battery to render your precious cell phone useless. Cell phones seem to run out of juice when you need them the most. The DIGIPOWER ChargeCard is a portable power solution for those emergency needs. It is the world’s first credit card size charger for your USB devices, including Smartphones and iPhones. Mizco International used this intuitive design for the DIGIPOWER ChargeCard because the one other thing most people never leave the house without is their wallet or purse. The DIGIPOWER is thin enough to slip inside your wallet or purse’s credit card slot. The dimensions of a Smartphone compatible* DIGIPOWER ChargeCard are 82.55mm x 50.8mm x 3.175mm (for comparison, the dimensions of a common credit card are 85.725mm x 53.98mm x 0.76mm).
The DIGIPOWER ChargeCard is slightly less long and less wide than a true credit card, and is four times thicker. Still, it is the thinnest portable power solution on the market. The ChargeCard weighs only 1.2 ounces. As far as portability is concerned, the DIGIPOWER ChargeCard would be hard to beat.
The DIGIPOWER ChargeCard comes with a mini USB cable that folds out to connect with Apple iPhones*, Smartphones, and other micro USB compatible devices. This design is especially convenient because it eliminates the hassle of carrying the connector cable separately. The faux leather finish on its body gives it an appealing touch. The DIGIPOWER ChargeCard is available in three different colors: black, white, and red.
The DIGIPOWER ChargeCard has three LED lights that indicate its charging status and has a power button to initiate charging. The LED light on the left remains lit when you connect it to a USB port on your laptop or a wall charger. You can press the LED indicator to see how much power the DIGIPOWER ChargeCard has remaining.
The DIGIPOWER ChargeCard can supply your iPhone or Smartphone with enough power for two hours of talk time. This may not seem like much, but in cases of emergency, two hours of backup is usually more than enough.
The DIGIPOWER ChargeCard is an innovative portable charger for Smartphones. It is attractive and has a clever design. As a source of emergency power, it does its job effectively and quickly. Be aware that there are two different versions of DIGIPOWER ChargeCard. The general Smartphone version is thinner than the iPhone version, which is a little too thick to fit in your wallet or purse’s card slot. You can also use the DIGIPOWER ChargeCard to charge other micro USB devices. HomeGear recommends the DIGIPOWER ChargeCard as an intuitive emergency portable power solution.
* Note: The iPhone compatible version is twice as thick (7.35mm) as the general Smartphone compatible version of the DIGIPOWER ChargeCard. This is because the Apple iPhone requires a 720mAh power pack, while other Smartphones use a 680mAh power pack.
• 680mAh Smartphone mini power pack (720mAh for iPhones)
