A portable charger just makes sense when you’re traveling. My family and I just returned from an epic European vacation aboard Enchanted Princess (you can see our full review of the ship and our itinerary here) and we brought this portable charger along. We were so glad we had it because when you leave the ship (or your hotel) to spend the day out exploring, there’s a good chance your phone will die thanks to all the photos you’re taking and directions you’re looking up.
What I love most about the INIU portable chargers is that it shows you how much charge you have left on the digital screen because it’s really frustrating when you pack your charger only to discover that it’s got no juice to charge up your device. Thanks to the screen, you’ll always know if your charger needs charging before you leave for the day.
What I especially love about this INIU charger specifically is its compact size. Not much bigger than a credit card (though thicker, of course), it’s easy to throw in a bag or pocket when you’re traveling. And best of all, it can fast fuel three devices at the same time. According to the product description, it can charge your phone from 0 to 60% in 30 minutes.
Some of the top reviewers say:
Reliable and Simple
“Charges iPhone 12 Pro Max fast and consistently for years, never an issue. Has been around a lot of sand and heat and is still as good as new. It’s actually nice to hold, whatever the finish is feels nice in the hand along with the curved edges. This thing isn’t awkward and doesn’t feel like you’re carrying around a weight. It fast charges as well as my Anker 20000mAh charger, and I much prefer this one over the Anker as far as it’s build. Although both have worked seamlessly. I actually don’t charge my phone via outlet anymore, and just keep these two power banks on rotation so I’m not awkwardly attached to the wall. Good stuff.”
“Must have! Would definitely recommend. Charges my iPhone at a pretty decent rate for a portable charger. Perfect for emergencies or travel. I like that it displays the percentage so that you know how much you have left. Recharges itself pretty fast as well.”
