myCharge Hub Turbo
Review by Angie Kibiloski
One of my favorite portable power companies is myCharge, who puts out cool new additions to their quality powerbank lines every year. This year, they’ve released the AdventureH20 series, the Razor Turbo, and the Hub Turbo. Today I’ll be discussing the Hub Turbo, which has a huge power storage capacity, multi-device charging, and super fast charging speed. If you want to learn about the other 2 models, the waterproof and rugged AdventureH2O series, and the super thin, super fast Razor Turbo, check them out on the myCharge site.
The Hub Turbo is an all-in-one powerhouse. It has 3 plug-in cable options, allowing you to charge 3 separate devices at the same time. There’s a built-in Apple Lightning cable, with Power Delivery, and a built-in USB-C cable, with Qualcomm Quick-Charge, which snap into the side of the device’s smooth, aluminum body for convenient storage. There’s also a USB-A port, though you’ll need to provide the cord to plug into it. To recharge the device itself, there’s fold-out wall prongs. With Pass Through Charging, you can have the Hub Turbo plugged into the wall socket, with your devices plugged into the powerbank, and charge them all up at the same time. There are 2 capacities available, a 10,050 mAh model ($109.99), and a 6,700 mAh model ($89.99). myCharge claims this powerbank will charge your devices up to 75% faster than other models, due to the Lightning cable’s Power Delivery, and the USB-C cable’s Quick Charge technology. These allow for a much higher energy output, transferring more power to your devices in a shorter time. It also recharges itself up to 50% faster than other models, and will hold a charge for up to a year. The Hub Turbo has Smart-sense to ensure complete device compatibility, and will work with any tablet or smartphone that has the appropriate cable connections, and Safe-cell to provide the highest level of battery safety for its powerful Lithium Ion heart.
The 2 models are mostly the same, except for the capacity, with the 6,700 mAh model providing you with up to 4 full device charges, and the 10,050 mAh model giving you up to 6 full charges. They have slightly different dimensions too, with the 6,700 mAh model measuring 4.1 in x 2.5 in x 0.9 in, and weighing 0.5 lbs., while the 10,050 mAh model is slightly larger, at 4.6 in x 2.8 in x 0.9 in, and 1.2 lbs. Both are pretty small and lightweight, compared to their competitors with the same power storage capacities. Whichever model you choose, you’re sure to be impressed. I love this company, and I’ve never been disappointed with any of their product models. I carry 2 of my favorite models from their previous releases in my car and work bag every day. If you’re in need of some portable power, from a very reliable company, check out the Hub Turbo, and all of their other powerbank models on the myCharge site.
