    iCarrier Portable Charger Keeps Your iPhone Going, And Going, And Going [Review]



    Travelers, campers, heavy users, and those who spend a lot of time away from outlets know when you rely on your iPhone for work or play, itís not making it through the day without at least one partial recharge. Especially with all the hip Vining and Instagramming weíre all do these days.

    iCarrier Portable Dual USB Charger by New Trent

    Category: iOS Accessories

    Works With: iPhones, iPods, iPads, USB Devices

    Price: $68

    For those who need a lot of portable power to-go, New Trentís iCarrier, as the highest capacity portable charger they make, promises not just one smartphone recharge, but up to six. Six!

    I devoted my iPhone 5 to iCarrier-only charging to see how well the big boy performed.

    What It Does

    With a 12,000mAh battery in its belly, the iCarrier wonít just power your puny iOS devicesóit can jump start your Honda. Ok, I made that car part up, but iCarrier, with its giant internal battery, is built to handle your plethora of portable gadgetry.




    New Trent promises iCarrier charges most smartphones up to six times before it needs a charge of its own, but with its massive 12,000 milliamp capacity, I was also interested to see if it could fully charge my battery-packed Retina iPad.

    And as is common with packs this powerful, one measly USB port doesnít cut it, so iCarrier features two dual-amp USB ports, each able to charge either an iPhone or iPad. Taking it a step further, New Trent says charge times donít slow down when two devices are plugged in.




    In Use

    Six and a half chargesóthatís how many top-offs my iPhone 5 got from the iCarrier. Thatís impressive. Now, I usually start charging my phone once it gets down to about 10-15% battery life, but regardless, iCarrier delivers on its promise to charge your phone 6 times. Thatís power for days.

    How about my iPad? Well, with about 9% battery life left, iCarrier was able to take my iPad 3 way back up to 92%. Thatís more than any other battery pack Iíve tried, and another excellent performance.

    iCarrierís portable size makes it super easy to stow and carry, too. Iíve tested power bricks that have odd shapes which make them hard to stash. Though thick, iCarrierís smart shape allows it to easily fit into most pockets or pouches into which it was shoved.

    About those dual USB ports: I did notice a small slow down in charging speed with two devices plugged in at once, but nothing big, so thatís another win.

    I do wish iCarrier didnít require its own charger, though ó thatís another charger to add to the bag. I also would love a power indicator with more than 3 lights. Those donít do a great job communicating how much power is actually left.




    Product Name: iCarrier Portable Dual USB Charger
    The Good: Days of portable, totable, compact power.
    The Bad: Can only be recharged with its own AC adapter.
    The Verdict Tons of portable power in a compact size makes iCarrier easy to recommend.
    Buy from: New Trent
