Patriot FUEL+ 9000mAh Mobile Rechargeable Battery Review


Smartphones and Tablets have revolutionized the way we access data on the go and with current 4G networks and Wi-Fi we never have to miss the latest Miley Cyrus Twerking video or drunken “Yolo” Tweet. The Achilles heel of most mobile devices though is the weak battery life. Take my Motorola Razr Smartphone for example. After a full charge I can only get a few hours of battery life when doing standard tasks such as checking emails, texting, posting on Facebook and occasionally using GPS. Standby is better, but I can’t remember a time my phone lasted all day on a single charge.

This weak battery life can be annoying when I am out of town covering a convention, or going to multiple meeting. At CES last year it died at the most inconvenient time and I was late for a meeting with Sapphire Technology. Luckly there are multiple companies investing heavily in mobile charging devices and while we have tested others the Patriot Fuel+ 9000mAh power bank is the most powerful so far and the only one that can charge two devices at once.

Out of the chargers in the Patriot Fuel+ lineup the model we have can hold the largest charge; 9000mAh. This means it sports a large 9000mAh battery inside the enclosure that makes it perfect for charging both Smartphones and Tablets. Of course the 9000mAh increase the price compared to the other models, but at $79.99 it could still be a worthwhile investment for people that travel often.
