There isn’t much to the unboxing experience, as once opened there isn’t much in there except the cable and instructions. I am a massive fan of the braided design, not only does it protect the cable for longer, but it also means that it will look good in the process.

The 1.5m long cable is a great length for me, as it gives me a little bit of slack when syncing or charging my phone. The included rubber cable tidy also means I can wrap up and store the cable when not in use.

Once I have plugged the phone in, the battery instantly starts charging the device. I found this out first hand when the power went out halfway through charging my device, as the battery kicked in and allowed me to keep charging my device.

The braided design means that it hasn’t frayed at all in use. It has held up to a lot of tugging and rubbing when in my bag or pocket. Though it does restrict the movement a bit and I found it difficult to move the cable around when I wanted to use my device.

At 2800 mAh the capacity is big enough to fully charge an iPhone 8. When I charge my device, the battery on the cable is charging at the same time, genius! Please, check out our other charging reviews.
