By now most of you out there should have already made plans for the summer, some of you may have decided to visit relatives while others may go to a place at the beach, visit foreign countries, go on a mountain excursion and so on. Personally i obviously prefer going both to the beach and the mountain and although these two destinations are the best one can be at regardless of the time of the year there's but a single problem that applies for both and that's that there aren't any electrical sockets around when you are not at the house/resort so if your smartphone is running low on battery then there's not much you can do about it. Because of such emergencies i always carry two portable batteries with me, one placed in my car (charging smartphones from your lighter socket is not the best thing to do) and another in my backpack. Today we will be taking a look at one such portable battery and more specifically the latest PowerBar 4400mAh by our friends over at Sandberg.

Portable Batteries are amongst the very few gadgets that i consider as being something essential pretty much for everyone out there so whenever i see a new model get released in the market or a Bluetooth wireless headset with a charging case (like the Jabra STONE2/3 and the Plantronics Voyager Legend UC) i just have to take a closer look and since just what it has to offer especially since i recommend such products to friends and family all the time. So far I’ve used quite a few portable batteries but what really got my attention with the PowerBar is that it's housing is made out of aluminum whereas most portable batteries have hard plastic housings which don't feel very sturdy and would better be off in your car/bike and not with you at all times. Under the hood of the PowerBar Sandberg has placed a mid-capacity 4400mAh/5v battery which should be able to provide up to 3 full battery charges for most smartphones in the market something which falls upon us to find out.
