How many times have you left your home or office just to notice that your smartphone is low on battery? Well i think it has happened pretty much to all of us at least one time and since this can be very annoying especially during the summer it's no surprise that most stores that deal in electronics have placed portable batteries (power banks) in the top 3 gadgets one needs to have when away from home. Just like most electronics however not all portable batteries are the made equal and so prior to making your choice out of a very large number of available models you need to do your research and find out what components each manufacturer uses. LUXA2 may not be the most recognizable name in the industry but they have a good range of quality products including portable batteries like the PL2 6000mAh Leather Power Bank which we have here with us today.

The very first thing you need to understand about portable rechargeable batteries (power banks) is that just like regular batteries their capacity and endurance through time (life) depends almost entirely on the quality of the cells used. LUXA2 is of course well aware of this and since they focus on quality quite a bit inside the PL2 they've placed two high capacity 3000mAh lithium-polymer rechargeable cells by Samsung. Interior quality however is only part of what makes a good portable battery and so in order to give it a more "elegant" feeling and look LUXA2 has dressed it with good quality PU (Poly) synthetic leather which makes it much easier to blend inside clothes. LUXA2 has equipped the PL2 both with a 2.1A USB charging port and two small LEDs (small but quite powerful so make sure you don't look straight at them) which can be used as a flashlight in cases of an emergency. Time however to take a closer look and see if it's everything we hope it to be.
