Combo devices rock because its always great when a single device can do more than one useful function. Enter the Fluxmob Bolt. It’s a 3000mAh powerbank AND a charger. The idea is so good that it begs the question, “Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before?”
The Fluxmob Bolt is no bigger than most wall chargers and measures in at 2.75 x 1.33 x 1.10 inches. It has a rectangular shape with clean angular lines and etched logos. The unit is coated with a matte finish that feels soft and rubbery when touched. On the hand, it is very solid, with excellent build quality.
On the front of the device is a small button which you can press to check how much juice the powerbank has remaining. With it are four blue LEDs to indicate the power level, and a green LED that lights up when the device is in use. Pressing the button for a few seconds also turns on/off the powerbank function. Finally, the device has a foldable plug which closes flushed on the back side, and a USB port at the bottom.
What makes the Fluxmob Bolt so interesting is that it is designed to replace your charger and at the same time act as a powerbank. The idea is so convenient that you have to wonder why this hasn’t been done before. The Bolt has a 3,000mAh lithium ion battery with 5v/1 amp output. Some may argue that the capacity is small, but it’s actually just right. Unless you’re a really heavy user, chances are you just need one additional charge to get you through the day.
While testing the Bolt, I was able to charge a Galaxy S6 from less than 40% to 100% in less than an hour. The Bolt was down to 2 LED lights (50% or less). It can charge most phones (or the S6 at least) for one and less than a half times.
The Fluxmob Bolt is one of those rare devices that is hard not to recommend. It’s small, has excellent build quality, and it’s very convenient. I mean, it’s a charger and a powerbank — what’s not to like, right?
The Fluxmob Bolt is now available and retails for Php2,800. It can be found in Lazada.
