There’s been a huge growth in the demand for pocket rechargeable batteries this year due to the growing smartphone market. The folks at aMagic in Hong Kong sent us one of their own rechargeable batteries to test out.
This particular model looks like a large AA battery with a curved mid-section. That makes the battery easier to hold. It also comes with a variety of colors, a total of 12 for every zodiac sign of the calendar (how Feng Shui, right?) as shown in their website.
The ports are found at one end of the battery — a micro-USB port for charging the battery itself and a regular USB port for charging any other device from the battery. The initial charge requires at least 8 hours to full capacity. Succeeding charges only takes about 2 to 3 hours.
The aMagic battery has a maximum charge capacity of 2600mAh which is pretty decent for its size and weight. I am able to extend the operating time of my Huawei MyFi device from around 4 hours to a maximum of 10 hours.
Not sure if this is available locally since the unit I have with me came from Hong Kong. No pricing information too but you can check the aMagic website here.
