Bottom Line

Mobile battery charging hasn't been so important in years and Belkin's Power Pack is a great choice

Would you buy this?

In the age of Pokemon Go, the person with the most-charged phone is king. There’s much to love about the cute critters, but as players are all too aware, the one special power that they all share is Phone Battery Vampire.

Most current phones have batteries that are around 3,000mAh in size (that’s milliamp hours). With all that GPS location data processing, mobile data sending and receiving, always on phone screen and graphics processing, even the best phones can die from fully charged in just a couple of hours.

So now there's finally a universal need for mobile power packs and Belkin’s Power Pack 6000 is potentially a great choice.

It provides an extra 6,000mAh – enough to fully charge most phones twice. It has two full-sized USB ports so it can charge two phones at once. Output is 5 Volts (the same as a standard phone charger) so be aware it won’t fast charge anything and tablet-charging will be slow (output is 3.4A shared across the two ports). It can be recharged via a microUSB input in the same way as most phones.

Belkin sensibly sells it mostly charged so you can use it straight out of the box. It’s very solid and looks classy with its aluminium shell. There’s even a button which lights up to four LEDs to show how charged it is. A short microUSB cable is also included.

It’s small but quite chunky and not light at 215g, but it will be a salvation to most hardcore phone users and Pokemon Go players. At $63 it’s reasonable value too.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
