There are many third-party products to choose from while charging your Apple Watch, but not many include internal charging. Over the past few weeks, I have been testing unique offers from UGreen, the new 4400mAh portable power bank for Apple Watch, which also includes a built-in Lightning cable.
My colleague Jeff reviewed UGreen's previous model, which features an internal magnetic charging pad for Apple Watch, but does not have a built-in Lightning cable. Overall, Jeff was impressed with Apple's Charger Apple Charger UGreen 2200mAh charger, but felt the price was a bit high.
UGreen's latest offer adds more value to its larger battery capacity, built-in Lightning cable and price tags for just $ 5 more than its brother at $ 55 (with Amazon instant coupon today).
- Battery Capcity: 4400mAh (16.28Wh)
- Rated Capacity: 2860mAh 5.1V
- Charging Voltage: 5.25V
- Micro USB input: 5V / 2A
- Lightning output: 5V / 1A
- Magnetic Charger Output: 5V / 1A
- Dimensions: 143 x 39 x 21 mm (slightly larger than Snicker)
- MFi certified (for Apple Watch charger and Lightning cable)
UGreen says that Power Bank 4400mAh with Magnetic Charger will give 8 bills for Apple Watch or 1.5 charge for iPhone 8. I have used it to fill both iPhone X and Apple Watch overnight, much more below.
Materials & Wake Up
UGreen's 4400mAh Power Bank with Magnetic Charger has a simple and clean design with satin finish on the plastic exterior. Although do not highlight the shape of metal, still feels solid.
On top of the magnetic loading loader for Apple Watch, and Lightning cable is mounted on the bottom of the charger. On one side you will find a micro-USB port to charge the internal battery, and on the opposite side is the aluminum power button that also operates the LED battery indicator.
Included is a short manual, Power Bank with Magnetic Charger, and micro USB cable for charging (you must use your own power bricks).
UGreen offers a one-year warranty and lifetime service support for all its products. It's also worth noting that UGreen has a 4.3 / 5 star in Amazon for Apple Watch / iPhone portable charger (at a price higher than Belkin's Valet Charger).
I am very happy with this portable charger after using it for the past few weeks, including weekend trips to Chicago. As I mentioned, I have used it very much to simultaneously charge iPhone X and Apple Watch overnight.
Easily consolidate accessories and chargers on the go. I already have several devices (mouse, baby monitor, Bluetooth speakers) that use micro USB for charging, so UGreen portable bank allows me to leave Apple Watch and my iPhone and bricks at home.
After a night full charging of iPhone X and Apple Watch, I've been left with a little juice left in the electric bank, but it usually needs to be refilled.
Another option is to use it primarily to charge your Apple Watch on the go, which should last longer in about a week. With flexibility and comfort, it feels great to me when compared to buying a separate energy bank, Apple Watch collects puck, and additional Lightning cable.
Another good detail is that you can put a power bank on its side to take advantage of Night Stand Mode while charging your Apple Watch. When charging only the iPhone, you can turn on the Lighting cable to rest your iPhone on top of the charger.
In my use, portable bank power costs rise by about 2.5 hours, slightly faster than UGreen says. Be sure to use a 10W power brick if the charging speed is very important to you. As far as charging speeds for Apple Watch and iPhone, the output is 5V / 1A which is the same as the brick power standard that comes with both devices.
Two things that I think will make this device even better is the use of USB C rather than micro USB and models with a larger battery capacity. However, this is a great tool as it ships now.
After doing hands-on, Powerbank 4400mAh UGreen with Magnetic Charger feels like a good accessory to be picked up. With convenience, flexibility, good build quality, and reasonable price, it is easy to recommend.
Usually priced at $ 60, UGreen offers instant coupon $ 5 on Amazon that brings this Power Bank 4400mAh with Magnetic Charger up to $ 55 shipped.
