   If you happen to enjoy taking long road trips or if you just like to take a break from civilization every once in a while then you probably own at least one powerbank (portable battery) in order to provide all your mobile devices with sufficient power until you get back (cutting all contact with civilization and its perks is not really easy). As I’ve mentioned before in previous reviews not only do i always carry around with me a tiny card sized powerbank in my wallet for emergencies but i also have a regular sized model in my car for when I’m in a hurry to leave and may end up forgetting to pack one with the rest of my stuff. Xtorm is among a handful of manufacturers that focus in releasing high quality models with top of the line battery cells and many interesting features and today we'll be taking a look at one of their latest powerbank the XB202 DISCOVER 17.000mAh.


   Xtorm was founded in 2008 and is part of the Dutch company Telco Accessories B.V., which has its head office in Houten (NL). Xtorm designs, manufactures and markets innovative universal mobile charging solutions. Xtorm Business products complement the range. Xtorm products are contemporary, user friendly and high quality. Xtorm products are currently available in 57 countries worldwide.


   Although inside the XB202 DISCOVER Xtorm has placed 17.000mAh worth of high quality (A-class) lithium-ion battery cells it's most important feature is the ability to charge multiple mobile devices simultenously via its 3 USB ports (two USB 5V/2.4A and one USB-C 5V//3A). On top of that one of the two "regular" USB ports fully supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology (can charge devices up to four times faster compared to conventional charging - as long as it's also supported by your mobile device that is) which according to the manufacturer essentially allows your mobile device to determine what power level to request at any point in time thus enabling optimum power transfer while maximizing efficiency. The Discover 17.000mAh also features a partially rubberized exterior, storage area for a bundled removable micro USB charging cable, 360 degrees power level LED indicator and protections against overload overcharge and overheating.
