8,000 mAh Dual-USB Ultra-Thin Organizer-Sized Specialty Powerbank, Designed As An Organizer/Binder Insert, 5.2mm Thin, by EMIE
This is a very specialized powerbank design, intended to be attached to a 3-ring binder, activities planner or similar. It arrived fully charged from the factory, and in one of the nicest presentation cases I have seen, including a very plush felt envelope/sleeve for protection.
The entire package is very suitable for gift wrapping, and would make a very appropriate corporate gift or corporate rewards-program choice.
Obvious thought and effort have been put into creating an attractive outer case. It's offered in assorted colors, I have the Charcoal Grey. Weight is 10 ounces. This is a Red Dot award winning design.
There are dual USB ports, each positioned at the end of the extremely flat and thin (5.2 mm) case. Both ports can be used simultaneously, and can be used with your larger planner/binder book in its closed position. The 2.1A output will power an iPad.
There's a four-light LED panel which indicates the unit is charging, and its approximate power level. This charges with the usual micro-USB cable (cable included, but you'll need your own AC wall charger module to plug that USB cable into).
The USB ports have small sliding covers which offer protection, but aren't difficult to use.
8,000 mAh is a respectable amount of charge, especially in a 5.2mm width. This obviously replaces having to carry a separate pocket or purse charger for meetings, etc. The built-in binder slots should fit a wide range of popular binders and organizers (most, if not all).
Summary: This is a unique design and a handy, useful addition to any binder/organizer. Very attractive case, and this does draw comments and compliments. It's worked fine with all the USB cables I've tried.
The Seller also offers a smaller version designed for smaller planners and organizers, you can see that item by clicking the Seller link at the top of the page.
Sample sent for testing and impartial review. A very interesting product. I hope this review is helpful as you comparison shop online.
