Review: Moshi IonGo 5K Duo
The Moshi IonGo 5K Duo Proves To Be A Capable Everyday Mobile Charger. In this fast-paced, tech-dependent modern day, a small but powerful mobile charger is one of the most important things to have. If you leave your house for more than a few hours and your phone dies, you lose access to chauffeur driving services, maps, food location/delivery, calling, texting, and basically all methods of communication unless you happen to stumble upon one of the few remaining pay phones. So in short, everybody needs a mobile external charger if they want to go out and have fun without worrying about being stranded. Of course, these chargers are known to come with issues of both aesthetic and efficiency, it must be powerful enough to last the day without being a bulky mess of wires. Enter the Moshi IonGo 5K Duo, a sleek little charger that claims an immense power. But does it hold up to the claims it makes? Charge it up and see.
In terms of appearance, the Moshi IonGo 5K Duo is already appealing with its extremely portable and cute design. It’s small enough to even fit in the pockets of most women’s jeans without the fear of tumbling out onto the ground when walking. It’s made of vegan leather and other premium materials that are pleasant to the touch and don’t run the risk of scratching your devices in close quarters. This is a device made to be carried around anywhere and all day without getting in your way. It comes with both Lightning and USB-C cables built in, so you can charge devices whether you prefer Apple or Android. The actual design is unique in that both short cables are tucked under a flap unless in use, so you avoid the issues of having a tangled mess of wires in your bag or pocket just to charge your phone. It’s clean, simple, compact, and nice to look at, and that’s only the outside.
Inside of the Moshi IonGo 5K Duo, you could find the same battery technology used in the electric cars of today. The cells have been professionally optimized for charging, discharging, and low internal resistance. The 5000 mAh battery is not here to play around, holding a significantly large charge within it. The speed is no joke either, with an output of up to 15 W of power at once and Fast Charge support that can charge your phone extremely fast and still have plenty of juice left. The device also supports pass-through charging, so that you can be charging the charger as well as your phone at the exact same time. It also has a helpful LED indicator so that you can know how much energy the battery is working with at any given time. All of these features combine into a mobile charger that can be both a lifesaver in a pinch, and a surefire yet simple way to always keep a high battery level when on the go.
Since we all carry smartphones everywhere nowadays, a great mobile charger has become a necessity in our day-to-day lives. Both inside and out, the Moshi IonGo 5K Duo has proven to be high-quality in every sense of the word. Its power is to be applauded, as it contains cell tech that is on the cutting edge of battery science at the moment. And it’s even more amazing how such a little device can pack such a powerful punch. I could see plenty of people using these for outdoor hiking, all-day theme park visits, or days at the beach since it’s such a no-hassle device with built-in, neatly tucked away cords. It is a bit expensive at $74.95 for dual cords and $69.95 if you’d prefer the same model without the USB-C cord, but you really do get what you pay for with this charger. It’s a beautiful-looking device that holds a huge charge and brings your phone battery up at astronomical speeds with very few issues to speak of at all. If this sounds like something that would come in handy next time you need to call a car ride to meet your friends and find your phone battery at 5%, give the Moshi IonGo 5K Duo a shot!
