Microsoft have released three new portable chargers, in three capacities; 5,200mAh, 9,000mAh and 12,000mAh and what’s more they are also offering a 5,200mAh version as a prize.
The Microsoft Portable Dual Chargers (to give them their full name) will start appearing in shops and online retailers worldwide over the next few weeks with prices expected to be $35, $45 and $55.
As the Lumia Conversations blog post points out:
If, after a long day at work or the beach, the battery on your Lumia looks like it might not take an hour-long Minecraft: Pocket Edition session while you’re riding the train, simply plug in your Lumia for a quick boost.
For the more power-needy who might have more than one device or plan to stay out for longer, either the 9000mAh or 12000mAh charger might be the preferred option.
While bigger in capacity and also physical size, these two are still portable and can easily be slipped into your bag, your glovebox, or in your tent while you prepare your smores.
All three portable chargers come equipped with not one, but two USB ports, which lets you charge more than one device at the same time…
When it comes to charging and holding their power, the Microsoft Portable Dual chargers can hold their charge for months at a time and still have up to 80% capacity after several months. They also charge your USB charging smartphone or tablet as fast as our AC-60 wall charger.
Checking the power levels on each pack is easy, thanks to the handy LED indicator.
If both your Lumia and portable charger need charging, make use of the ‘daisy-chain’ feature. Simply connect the power pack to the charger, then your mobile device to the power pack and both will charge simultaneously.
If you are interested in winning one of three 5,200mAh chargers you need to leave a comment on Lumia Conversation’s blog post HERE saying how you would make the most of the Dual Charger, they also suggest you make your comment stand out using “photos, record a video, use the Hyperlapse Mobile app, or build something on Minecraft: Pocket Edition“.
