When the iPhone 5 came out, it took a good long while before 3rd party manufacturers came up with external power banks and other accessories that required the use of Apple’s new Lightning cable.
If I remember right, there were compatibility issues at first. There were instances wherein an iPhone 5 unit would simply refuse to charge using a non-Apple manufactured Lightning connector.
Unlike iPhone 5’s predecessors like the 4/4S wherein power bank cases would readily be available in the market as soon as the Apple phones are released, reputable power bank case manufacturers took a substantial amount of time before coming up with their very own offerings for this particular model.
The first few hybrid power bank cases designed for the iPhone 5 that started popping up were the ones found in Tutuban. Some of these devices didn’t even have a brand and some sported a name that seemed to be whipped up by some dumb dork (you know what I mean). These accessories had subpar workmanship and very poor quality. Personally, why risk an expensive piece of equipment on a power bank case that obviously looks suspect?
Finally, one of my trusted brands when it comes to power banks and power bank cases, MiLi, has released the much awaited Power Spring 5. Unlike MiLi’s previous model, the Power Spring 4 (for the iPhone 4/4S), the Power Spring 5 is significantly thinner and lighter.
With 2200mAh of power, the Power Spring 5 can fully charge your iPhone 5 from 0-100% and still have an extra 40-50% of juice.
Most, if not all of you, already use smartphones, right?
You probably know how power-hungry these gadgets are especially when you’re dabbling with ‘em all day long – they suck the life out of their own batteries like blood-thirsty vampires and before you know it, you’re left with a dead phone.
Sadly, a dead powerless phone is no more useful than a dumb paperweight.
How many times have you wished that your phone’s battery had extra juice?
Whether you’re a student preparing for the long haul in school… or thinking of what neat gift to get dad for Father’s Day on June 17, there’s no better time to than NOW to grab a MiLi Power Star. The perfect (and much needed) partner for your smartphone*.
The Power Star has a capacity of 2,000mAh, able to add another lifecycle to your device. It is compact and light, with no wire or adapter clutter. The micro-USB tip cleanly folds back into the Power Star.
Most definitely a back-to-school necessity and the perfect Father’s Day gift!
MiLi has come up with an awesome promo!
From June 15 to July 31, 2012, every purchase of a MiLi Power Star is packaged with a complimentary MiLi Pocketpal 1A USB Adapter that the customer can use to charge the power bank and other devices**!
Pretty cool, huh? The MiLi Pocketpal 1A USB Adapter is very handy – you can actually fit it in your pocket. Way smaller and more compact than the default chargers that come with your smartphones. Nice!
With the MiLi Power Star, never again will you be left with a dying phone especially during crucial times when you need it most.
