iLuv myPower 50L Power Bank Review

The iLuv myPower line of portable batteries come in different sizes and capacities. The myPower 50L comes in similar size as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s and it offers 5000mAh of power on the go. It also has built-in Lightning cable for your iPhone or iPad, as well as a full USB charging port for your other devices. The battery is slim and light and it takes less time to recharge than many power banks on the market. The iLuv myPower 50L Power Bank comes in white or black.



Design

The iLuv myPower 50L portable battery has a clean design. The shiny white or black plastic covers protect the battery internals, while the blue matte plastic frame offers better grip and seats for ports and the Lightning cable. The 3" blue Lightning cable is attached to the battery and the connector hides in a protected slot. All ports live on one end of the myPower 50L, including a full size USB charging port, a micro USB recharging port and a small power button. Four small LED lights live on the top, indicating levels of power, and you can turn on these LED lights by pressing the power button. The battery measures 2.8 x 6.7 x 0.9 inches and weighs 5.2 ounces.



Features

The iLuv myPower 50L offers two charging ports, one with the built-in Lightning for Apple devices and another full USB for Android devices and other gadgets. The Lightning cable has 2.1A output power and it supports Apple's fast charging technology. It can charge iPhone, iPod and iPad with the 8-pin connector. The USB charging port outputs 1A power, and it can charge most smartphones and tablets. The battery can charge two devices simultaneously as it has max output capability of 3.1A.



The myPower 50L's 5000mAh capacity can fill up the battery on most of the smartphones on the market including phablets. In our tests, the battery offered two nearly full charges on the iPhone 6s, each charge filled the phone's battery from 15% to 100%. The battery topped up the iPad Air 2 for about 40% and charged the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 1.5 times. It did charge the iPhone 6s a lot faster than it charged the Samsung devices.

The iLuv myPower 50L has built-in advanced circuitry that provided protection against overheating, overcharging and damaging a connected device. Its input power level is 1A and it can recharge in 3.5 hours.



Conclusion

The iLuv myPower 50L Power Bank is a great portable battery for iPhone users who need power on the go. The built-in Lightning cable on the battery eliminates the need to take your phone's charger and cable for an overnight trip or even a weekend getaway. The battery is slim and light, and it's very easy to carry it in your purse, backpack or gear bag. It can charge two devices at the same time and it's also fast to recharge. We like the modern, clean look of the battery and the fast charging speed for the iPhone 6s.
