GadJet Magic Cable and Portable Power Bank Preview

GadJet keeping you charged and connected on the go.

 

Do you have a smart phone? Do you have a Garmin (other GPS devices are available)? Of course you have. You’re always checking your social media status and your Strava kudos, with other powerful Apps running in the background or forgetting to pause the GPS, aren’t you? Of course you are. All of this use means that you constantly need to plug that phone in or recharge the Garmin – not really an option when you’re 30 miles from the nearest phone charger… enter stage left the GadJet Magic Cable and the Portable Power Bank.

 

The Magic Cable, on the face of it is just a standard USB connector for your iPhone, however the pin is compatible with devices that use both Apple Lightening connectors (iPhones from 5 onwards or new generation iPads) and mini USB devices. Quite handy when all your devices require a different cable or pin to recharge it or transfer your data.

 

One pin for both your Lightning and Micro USB devices

Highlights:

  • One cable for all your devices
  • Compatible with both Lightning and Micro USB devices
  • Fishnet design
  • Quickly sync and transfer your data
  • 1.2 metre cable length for convenience

 

The Portable Power Bank has a high-capacity powerful 5000mAh battery that let’s you charge your device on the go. The Power Pack capacity, like your phone battery, is measured in milliampere hours (mAh). An iPhone 6s, for example, has a battery capacity of 1,715 mAh, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 has a 3,000 mAh battery, in both these cases the Power Pack could charge up your device at least twice from a single charge or a top up charge for several devices.

 

The Gadjet Portable Power Bank is designed to be powerful yet compact enough to easily fit in your bag or pocket

Highlights:

  • Universal: charges USB powered devices
  • Superior quality with sleek design
  • Compact and portable
  • Charge your devices while you are on the go
  • High capacity let’s you charge your device more than once

 

Both the cable and the Portable Power Bank are light enough and small enough just to slip into a rear jersey pocket or in your saddle bag and present a great option if your rides are getting longer and you’re likely to need a reliable power source to keep your devices charged or the battery in your USB rechargeable lights topped up. The cable is especially handy if you have an Apple iPhone requiring a Lightening Connector pin and your other gadgets are mini-USB compatible.
