Tylt has been around for quite sometime, but this time I think they’re trying to break the mold, even just a little. With this new Flip-stick with both Micro-USB, Lighting, and USB-C variants; there’s a flip-stick for everyone. When I was granted access to check this, I just had to jump at the chance at all costs.
The rubberized coating makes the portable charger easy to grip, the slipping is almost unnoticeable at times. The power indicator is right in the middle of the charger in the form of 4 lights i.e. 25%, 50% and so forth. I think this is better than having some fancy led numerical indicator that would ultimately just take up valuable space on the charger. With the ability to directly plug into a charger (faster charger as well) the real charging time is greatly reduced. On the other end of the flip-stick as you can see the real charger, which as before mentioned, comes in all three charging ports for each choices and access.
Weighing in at a little less than a pound, this thing almost disappears in your pocket. Trust me, I know what you’re thinking, “that’s terrible, I could easily lose it!”. Yes and no, let me explain. The size makes the portable charger easier to use but, with its coating as well as its shape it makes it easier (at least for me) to easily keep track of it at all times, even when preoccupied with other tasks. This is the best feature of the device, the grab and go. Consumers have portable chargers just for this purpose. Lets be honest, no one wants to wait around forever. Everyone wants to be on the go, go, go, and with it being to lightweight, fast charging and with a 3550 mAh capacity, it can fully charge almost any phone the market fully one time before needing to be recharged, what’s left to talk about?
The price is what’s left to talk about. Coming in at 39.99, this little charge demon isn’t just affordable, but has the quality to back it up. I know what you might be thinking “Yeah but I can get cheaper chargers with higher capacity else”. Once again, yes and no; You can get cheap products everywhere but the quality is lacking and thus might alter the result. I don’t know about you but personally I rather pay for quality than for potential damages later down the line. You know the old saying, you get what you pay for! Also, Tylt has built a trust base with customer base so that faith is built in the customers and the company itself, and speaks volumes.
I’ve had a lot of portable chargers in my day and this one kind of takes the cake. I think the point that trumps all is the weight. It isn’t cumbersome, it’s tangle free, and had a “feel good” appearance. Everyone is always on the go, with their cell phones in one hand and their coffee in the other, their coffee can get refilled, and now with the flip-stick, so can their cell phones. *This review isn’t influenced by the company in any way, it is our own honest opinion about the product listed.*
