When I posted about the lithium battery card and how excited I was to pre-order one the company got in touch with me to ask if I was interested in reviewing a prototype. Of Course, I said yes so they sent one over and the first thing I noticed was the high-end packaging and the polished finishing.
The card itself fits pretty well in my relatively small wallet fortunately, though now the wallet is thicker. Its size is even smaller than my credit card (comparison photo in gallery). The finishing is solid, the product is polished and refined and looks exactly like the one they advertised on their artwork.
With every purchase you get a stick pad that you sticky to your phone and then stick the battery card on. It leaves no residue but gets dirty pretty quick, it worked fine on my LG G2, the battery card would charge the phone while its stuck on the phones back.
There are two ports, one USB to charge the battery card and a micro-USB to charge your phone or headset etc. You have the option to opt for a lightning cable if you own an iPhone device, keeping in mind it would cost you an additional $5.
If you plug the card in a charger and let it charge your phone at the same time, the charger will charge both itself and your phone simultaneously; something that came in handy. Just having your phone’s wire charger in your wallet is a great tool, having a wire charger and a battery is even better.
My phone has a 3000 mAh battery and the battery card has 1200 mAh battery juice, so the battery should boost my phone by 40% (iPhone users should get around an 80% boost, which is almost filling up the entire battery). I never got 40% additional charge, nor 30% though I always charged when the phone already had battery, so there’s some room for improvement here (Update: Scott on the comment explains how the battery consumption works). Note that I’m testing a prototype and not the final product.
Overall I’m really happy with the build and size of the card. I often find myself sitting next to my laptop, reaching for my wallet, getting the card out and charging my phone. It feels good knowing you have a cable to charge your phone wherever you are. I’m looking forward more now to getting the golden early bird battery card I purchased from them. I will keep everyone updated on when the lithium battery card will be available in retail stores in Kuwait.
