TYLT Energi 10K review

With battery packs, there are plenty of options available. Though the normal size of the external charger is around 5,000 mAh, some prefer a larger pack. With the TYLT Energi 10K, you’ll get 10,400 mAh of battery in a stylish, sleek package. Slick styling doesn’t tell the whole story, though. We put the 10K to the test to see if it holds up to another TYLT pack we highly recommend, the Energi+.

TYLT Energi+ review

When it comes to your smartphone battery, having it run short while out and about is an underlying fear for all of us. We dread being in a place where we can’t plug in, and being out of touch when our phone or tablet dies out. With the slow death of removable batteries, a backup plan is in order. A battery pack is the easiest and most straightforward approach, here.

Battery life often becomes an issue. For many though, you can find time throughout the day to plug in for a bit.

Battery Life: keeping charged while on the go

There is plenty to talk about when it comes to battery life and keeping your devices charged while on the go. At risk of stating the obvious, but this is one of those times when there never seems to be enough and where bigger seems to be better. The exception to that rule comes when the battery is large enough that it adds serious weight and size to the device. Anyway, the topic of batteries came up when we saw that Woot offering from last week, the one where they were offering the messenger and sling-style bags for $39. Basically, while trying to decide whether I needed to purchase the Powerbag, it got me to wondering -- how are most users keeping their device charged while out and about.

I have my own and love it for trips to CES, but today Woot.com has these impressive accessories nearly $100 off for just $39.99.

Many of us struggle with making sure our smartphones can last throughout our busy day until we can finally plug them back into the charger. And with new 4G LTE smartphones, battery drain is probably your worst enemy.
