Gear Review: Ibattz Battstation Tough Pro Dual USB Battery Pack

IMG_0328

Today I’m reviewing another battery backup for most gadgets.

The Ibattz Battstation Tough Pro 8400 (Amazon, $48.95)

Weighing 7.4 oz/210g (9.7 oz/275g with attached sleeve), the Ibattz measures 4.33″ x 2.7″ x .89″/ 110mm x 69mm x 22.5mm.

It has two USB out ports. One port is 5v/0.5A and the other is 5V/1.0A . The company claims you can fully charge one IPad 2 and two iphones with this charger. (It’s offering 8400 maH in case you haven’t realized that.)

On top is a series of blue lights indicating the charge remaining on the battery pack.

On one end are the two USB out ports and one micro USB charging port. There is also an LED flashlight.

The Ibattz Battstation Tough Pro comes with a silicone formfitting sleeve to protect it should it get dropped or splashed with water. There is an opening in the sleeve to see the blue lights as well as a flanged end allowing access to the USB ports and flashlight. You don’t have to take the sleeve off to use the device.

A 12000maH version is also available. It’s bigger, heavier and costs $65. It doesn’t come with a flashlight but has an attached carabiner.

The Ibattz Battstations Tough Pro works very well. It charged up quickly and I’ve had no problem charging with it. I really like the fact that it comes with a protective sleeve and flashlight.  It has now replaced my other battery backup devices even though it is heavier. I feel the extra protection will prevent it from getting damaged. The others just felt flimsy.

Getting the sleeve on and off is a bit tricky but once it’s on there shouldn’t be a reason to remove it.  The flange end of the sleeve is a bit tricky to use and at first didn’t even realize it was there.

In the box are the Mojo Battstation Tough Dual Pro , micro-USB Charge Cable (80 cm / 2.6 ft) ,30-pin Apple Connector, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab Connector

Sorry I don’t h ave many photos but I just could get any good ones. You can see more about this device at their website: Ibattz Battstation.
