Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Accessory of the Week

We’ve all been there. You leave the house in the morning, whip your smartphone out of your pocket to send a text and the dreaded red indicator is displaying on its battery level indicator. You won’t be near a computer or power socket for hours. What to do?

Belkin’s Power Pack 4000 may be the answer. It’s a portable battery charger which can supply enough juice to charge the average smartphone twice over. Keep one of these in your bag and you’ll never be out of power for long.

The Power Pack 4000 can also be used to charge a tablet, and for some will provide one complete charge, though for an iPad it will only take the battery level to 40 per cent.

The unit itself is around the size of a portable hard drive, though slimmer and lighter. It has two USB ports, so you could charge two devices at once, though I’d recommend reserving that particular function for emergencies. It comes with a wall plug and two 15cm USB cables, one with a micro USB plug and the other with mini USB.

You’ll have to charge the Power Pack 4000 for eight hours the first time you use it but after that it should only take 3-4 hours to fill it up. Status indicators on the top let you know how much charge it has left.

The Power Pack 4000 is a small, lightweight and, dare I say, good-looking portable charger that does the job well. ®
