The PNY Outdoor Charger – travel accessory review

PNY chargerA charger seems a simple thing, but a charger is an indispensable part of any traveller’s kit. In fact, even an office worker with only a short commute will be glad of a power pack, and in particular the PNY Outdoor Charger. This is actually the most robust and practical charger I have found so far, but I do need to use my own cable for charging my iPhone.

The PNY Outdoor Charger is specifically made for rugged conditions, although its features will be welcomed by anyone needing a sturdy and reliable booster, particularly in a trying environment. It is designed to official IP65 standards. It is resistant to dust as well as light water contact such as rain or gentle spray. Its rubberized shell is resistant to shocks, so it won’t break when dropped from a moderate height!

Works with Apple, Android, Windows Mobile and Blackberry phones

The most important feature of any charger is, well, its charge. The PNY Outdoor Charger provides 7800mAh capacity, 2A input for a quick recharge of the device on the go, as well as a 2.1A output. It comes with a carabiner, and a micro-USB and mini-USB cable, too. It works with Apple, Android, Windows Mobile and Blackberry phones. There is enough power here to charge 4 devices – or one device 4 times!
