myCharge Hub 6000 Portable Power Bank hands-on1
First let’s talk design. To tell you the truth, it’s nice to find that the myCharge Hub 6000 is pretty discrete in what it’s packing along for the ride. In fact, we really appreciate the clean and portable design of the myCharge Hub 6000. Yes, it’s body is constructed out of plastic, which is warranted honestly, seeing that it contributes to giving it a lightweight feel in the hand.
Showing off its worth, it’s wonderful that it incorporates both microUSB and Lightning cable connectors – so we don’t have to carry along any extra baggage with us. Adding yet more depth to its functionality, a full-sized USB port is hidden behind another plastic flap to enable a broad range of devices to tap into its battery charge. And finally, the wall socket prongs rotate for easy and quick charging – though, we would’ve preferred an additional connection so it can connect to any USB port to charge.
Overall, it’s beneficial for those who desperately need to keep their devices juiced, especially with its 6,000 mAh battery. At $99.99 for it, which matches the original cost of last year’s myCharge Peak 6000, it’s not bad of an investment, though, we've seen other higher capacity battery packs selling for the same price. Then again, its rivals lack the sleek and clean design of this – plus, the integrated cables too.
