Gadget : Elgato smart power portable charger


There are plenty of mobile portable chargers on the market that range from one that can give just enough juice to make that last call, to one that provides enough power source to last them a week in an area without electricity.
The Elgato Smart Power sits somewhere in between, however what makes the Elgato Smart Power stand out is the inclusion of an app that connects a user’s phone to the battery via Bluetooth.
Once connected, the app lets one quickly check how much power the battery has, how much that equates to the phone and even how hot the battery is running. But where the app comes to even greater use is setting it up to send notification when the charger’s battery is running low, so the user can remember to recharge it.
As a straight portable charger, the Elgato Smart Power offers 6000mAh of charge, which is around three phone charges on the go.
The device comes with a built-in USB cable for recharging, but will require one to carry their own charging cable.
On the down side, the user has to remember to act on the notifications. The charger has also been noticed to take really long to charge, but at least the battery does hold the charge over time.
