Hub Plus by MyCharge – Review
The Hub Plus by MyCharge is a portable battery charger/powerbank designed with integrated cables including: Apple® Lightning™ cable, micro-USB and a plug so that if it dies you can easily plug it into the wall and recharge your devices. It will charge two devices at once – one using the Lightening cable and the other using micro-USB. This charger, unlike many others on the market came fully charged out of the box – that meant that if you had a dead device you could be charging it within moments rather than waiting for the charger to charge and then charging your device.
I loved that I didn’t need to worry about carrying cables along with my charger. It all folded up into a small power brick with the cords and plug storing nicely inside which meant I could put it in my diaper bag, purse, or backpack on the go. It also kept a charge well even when I wasn’t actively using it – I went three weeks without having to use it and it was perfectly charged and ready to use when I started to get the dreaded low battery on my iPhone. It also charged my dead iPhone to being able to turn it on within 10 minutes which is good for a powerbank – usually I have to plug it into my car charger or home charger in order to get it to turn on quickly. I loved how fast it charged my iPhone and got me up and running in a few minutes. It is small and light which meant it didn’t weigh down my bag when not in use. It also had a feature which turned off the charger when your device was fully charged so that it didn’t overcharge.
In terms of enhancements, I would like to see longer cords for the charger. Right now they are very short and if you are trying to charge your device in your bag and still use it, there simply isn’t enough length and you are left holding the charger along with your device. I’d also like to see a USB port which you could plug your own cables into.
Easy to use charger that includes integrated cables and wall plug that comes fully charged and ready to use. This charger is slim and fit into my bag easily while keeping a charge until I needed it.
