The first thing I did when I opened the outer flap on the box to see the Jade J Powerboost was say ooooh. Outloud. Like a little kid.
I repeated that oooh when I took it out of the box. The photos on the Jade J website do not do the sleek elegance of this portable charger justice.
It's so pretty, I had a preteen on either side of me trying to snag it. Teeth may have been involved in keeping it for myself. *No children were hurt during product testing.
But don't be fooled by the pretty exterior, this charger packs a punch.
The 3,000 mAh, 5V output charges a battery fully in about an hour, which is great for someone like me who runs a virtual office and has two kids to transport to after school activities while keeping in touch with my staff.
What was just as amazing as the boost it gave my phone was how light this unit is. Other portable chargers with this much juice weigh down your already laden bag. The Jade J weighs about as much as the protein bar I keep stashed for when I forget breakfast.
But Jade J isn't just about power - it's about accessories! They offer a 2-in-1 charge & sync cable that features both a micro USB tip for Android and a Made For iPhone (MFi) certified lightning tip for Apple, which make charging a variety of devices so much easier. They also have matching earbuds (pre-order now for April delivery!) with quality sound and controls to change a song or make a call without having to take out your phone.
The gemstone colors suit everybody, and the sleek style can be dressed up or be casual, tucked in a backpack or evening bag.
