If you have been to Pokemon ‘hotspots’ like Marina Bay Sands, Merlion Park and Sentosa in Singapore recently, troves of fans scuttling from Pokestops to Pokestops with wires sticking out of their back packs will be a common scene. Other than capturing that new Pokemon for their Pokedex, they are also constantly charging their fast depleting smartphone battery while on the move. I mean, who wants to run out of battery just when a Snorlax or a Pikachu appears on their screen.
Ye!! BPR88 Energy Pack, a high powered 11,200 mAh (a 8,800 mAh model is also available) external power bank might just be the backup you need. Compatible with most mobile devices, the power bank is able to supply power to tablets, smartphones and music devices. Even better, it can charge two devices simultaneously with its dual fast charge capability, one for your smartphone running PokemonGo and the other running your favourite Pokemon radar app.
The power bank also comes with built-in intelligent circuit which protects your mobile devices from the risks of overcharging and short circuiting. To check the remaining juice on the power bank, all you need is a simple shake or tap thanks to its patented Smart Power Detection technology. We like the slip-resistant rubber coating as it adds a nice grip to the power bank.
What’s not so good about it? The size. We can probably get similar capacity power banks that is slimmer and lighter. Only thing we will be giving up is the dual-charging capability.
￼The S$99 Ye!! BPR88 Energy Pack is available in Pink and Blue and you can get one at Anté@Vivo City and Anté@Suntec City, EpiCentre, Istudio, and telcos like M1 and Starhub.
