Swiss Mobility Power Pack Review – 10000mAh

The Swiss Mobility Power pack is a fantastic powerpack for giving you extra minutes of talking on your cell phone or time on your iPad or tablet.

This is going to be a short review because this device has two major benefits, and one major drawback.  Just that information should be enough for you to make your decision easily.

Swiss mobility power pack Conclusion

The Swiss mobility power pack is a near perfect device with one major flaw.  When you’re actually using it to charge your devices it’s excellent and I can’t fault it.  However, at the end of the day when you’ve been using it and it comes to recharge it – it takes hours and hours.  The reason is simple, the output ports support 2.1 amps, but the input port only supports 1 amp.  The result for me, is that when I plugged it in to charge it needed more than overnight often to completely charge from flat to full.

If you use several different power packs the flaw may not be an issue, you can just use another one of our devices while it charges.  However, if you only have one powerpack – then you might be better off picking a different one.

The form factor is quite nice, but if you want something for your pocket you’ll probably want to go for one of their smaller models and not the 10,000mah version.  Swiss has several different sizes for this, but the 10,000mah version is a good compromise lots of capacity while not too large.

I would still recommend it, but just be aware of how long you have to leave it to charge.

 

 

Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard Review

The Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard

The Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard is starting to get a bit old, but it certainly doesn’t look dated.  I have an enormous collection of Bluetooth keyboards, this is one of the keyboards that I keep reaching for.

It is one of the most efficiently designed keyboards I have ever seen.  It’s very small and has no wasted space because of the small bezel.

Before you purchase this keyboard I think you need to decide which devices you will use it with.  If you need something for your phone, tablet, Ipad or other mobile device, then you will not find a better product.  If you want something to use with a larger device – then save your money and look for a different keyboard.

It fits really well with a small mobile device, it’s super portable and you can make use of the cover that doubles as a stand.  This keyboard will take up almost no space in your bag.

One of the things I like best about this keyboard is the feel when typing.  As someone that’s been able to touch type at a 100 words a minute since I was a young child, the feedback from the keyboard is important to me.  On this front the keyboard doesn’t disappoint.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a full-sized keyboard, so you can’t expect too much – but for a portable keyboard it’s truly outstanding.

 PROS

  • Quite a small keyboard (really portable)
  • No space wasted, small bezel
  • Bluetooth so it’ll work with everything
  • Great feel for touch typing
  • Comes with a stand for your tablet or phone

CONS

  • Quite a small keyboard (smaller than most laptop keyboards)
  • Soft on and off switch (not a physical switch)

 

Conclusion on the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard

Not big enough to use with your laptop, but If you need a keyboard for your Ipad, Tablet or Mobile device then buy this as fast as you can before they stop selling it, you won’t be disappointed!
