Portable batteries used to recharge your portable devices, tablets and smartphones have been around for quite some time now but even so i don't really see that many people using them when I’m on the road. Personally i use 3 portable batteries daily not only because i don't like having to remember to bring the same one along with me every time i go out (eventually i will forget) but also because one would need to be recharged three times as much so i have one placed behind the seat of my car, another in my backpack and a third one (the smallest of the three) in my shoulder wallet/bag. On the other hand out of all the people i know just 3 own portable batteries and only 1 of them actually carries it around with him in case of an emergency. Today’s review is about one such portable battery and more specifically the latest PowerBank released by Patriot the FUEL+ 7800mAh.

Both the FUEL+ 7800mAh PowerBank which we have here today and its larger brother the 9000mAh model feature Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery packs which can be used to charge small and large devices from MP3/4 players, Bluetooth earsets and smartphones and up to tablets via their dual USB outputs (5V1A/5V2.5A). Of course with most tablets featuring batteries well over 8000mAh in capacity the 7800mAh version which we have here is hardly enough even to charge one of those once (the 9000MAH model is far more suitable) so personally I’d recommend this particular model for use with smaller devices like smartphones since it should be able to give an Samsung Galaxy S4 (2600mAh battery) up to 3 full charges. However capacity is not the only thing that matters when choosing the right portable battery so let's get close and personal with the FUEL+ 7800mAh PowerBank.
