A couple of months ago, Chris and I upgraded our cell phones to the new Samsung Galaxy S5. (You can read about why we dropped Straight Talk here). I had the Galaxy S3 previously, and Chris had a Samsung Proclaim, I believe it was.
We LOVE our new phones. I’m very techy (at least I like to think I am!) and my phone is attached to my hip. I live with this phone. I even sleep with this phone on my night stand, and find myself waking in the middle of the night just to check emails, and the important stuff, like my social media accounts, lol.
I did find that I was draining my battery, and quickly. Every time I was in the car, I would plug it into the charger. But when I was working for the worst company in the history of ever, I would find that my battery was draining extremely quickly, and I had no way to charge it while I was at work. There were days when I was working my 16.5 hour days, that my battery would just completely die in the middle of my shift. And if you read my post about the dangers of where I worked, this was NOT a good thing. I was working for a company where I was robbed at knife point, we would find used syringes on the shelves, there were shootings and drug dealings going on right outside in the parking lot.
Needless to say, not having a cell phone made my very uneasy. So when my battery would go dead, I would be in panic mode. Sure, we had a cordless phone at the store, but it’s not always convenient to have to find it in the case of an emergency.
So when I had the opportunity to review this new product from Linkon, I was ecstatic. This is a power bank for all kinds of cell phones.
They carried an assortment of 5 different colors. They didn’t have orange, so I chose my second favorite color – pink!
It arrived in record time. The color was so vibrant, and it wasn’t much larger than a tube of lipstick, and even came with a little velour carrying case, it’s own cord, and adapters for iPhones.
I couldn’t wait to charge this thing up!
One thing I love about this power bank is that it has a digital reading, so you know how much charge is on it, and how much you have left. Once it reads 100, you know it’s fully charged. It didn’t take too long for it to get fully charged, and I charged it from my computer using the cord they provided.
The only issue I experienced was when I was trying to charge my phone using the cord they provided. When I would charge it, the power bank automatically shuts off after 30 seconds. It is supposed to continue charging, but it would stop charging. I emailed Linkon, and they said they had just becomej aware of this issue, and asked me if I could try using my phone’s original cord. I tried that and it worked flawlessly.
They emailed me back very quickly and with a solution that worked for me. So in my opinion, that said a lot about their customer service. I’m confident that if my cord did not work, they would have offered another solution. They definitely get an A+ for customer service.
Since then, I have used this power bank countless times with no problems at all. I absolutely love that I have a backup for when my cell phone is running out of juice. Also, this isn’t just for cell phones. I have a Kindle Fire which I have also used to charge with the Linkon Power Bank and it worked great for that too.
Right now you can purchase this product on Amazon for just $24.95 with FREE 2-day shipping if you have an Amazon Prime account. It is normally $39.95, and the peace of mind this product offers is worth every penny!
I highly recommend this product!
