Qmadix BoostPac - Review

While Windows Phones have noticeably improved power management to get the most of your battery, every now and again you might need a boost of power. You could use a car charger or carry around an extra wall charger/USB cord but what about the times you don't have a charging source? Enter the Qmadix BoostPac.

This little one inch square cube is a 1000mah Lithium Ion battery that will give your Windows Phone enough power to get you to that electrical outlet or car charger. The battery has a built in shutoff to protect your phone from over-charging and LED indicators to show you how much power is left and when re-charging is complete.

Continued after the break.

On the back side of the cube you will find two swing out USB connectors; one mini-USB and one micro-USB. When not in use, these two connectors fold flush with the body of the Boostpac, maintaining its compact size.

To the front is a micro-USB and mini-USB ports that are used to recharge the Boostpac via computer USB ports. When attached to a Windows Phone, it doesn't add much bulk and will replenish a large portion of your batteries life.

I could see the Boostpac come in handy for camping trips, emergency power during weather events that knock out your home's power, or any other situation where a power outlet isn't available and your Windows Phone's battery is on its last leg.

The Qmadix BoostPac is running $36.95 and you can find it here at the WPCentral Accessory Store.

  • Too expensive. Can get three times the juice for the same price. If you actually try to use your device while charging with a 1000mAh, you won't get very far.
