How many times are you out traveling with your phone and all of a sudden you notice that you get the dreaded ‘low battery’ indicator? If you use an iPhone or Android smartphone, I am sure the answer to this is pretty frequent. Of course if you are in your vehicle or in a hotel, you can hook up your charger but what about when you are exploring ‘off the beaten path’ and have no access to a car charger or AC power.

iPhone Low Battery Indicator

Well, we have found a device that solves all of these problems. The Revv Battery Power Pack by Lenmar is an extremely portable, aesthetically pleasing device that is perfect to throw in your pocket, backpack or purse. Just connect your smartphone charger to the device via USB, and watch your phones battery gain much needed life.

Lenmar Revv Battery Pack

The Revv provides up to one full iPhone or Android smartphone charge without needing to recharge the device. A handy LED indicator and capacity level gives a quick glance guide as to how much charge is on the external battery as follows:

  • One LED indicates 20-40%
  • Two LEDs indicate 40-60%
  • Three LEDs indicate 60-80%
  • Four LEDs indicate 80-100%

How do you charge your Revv Battery Power Pack? Simple, just connect the micro USB cable that is included to the device and to a USB computer, wall adapter or USB car charger.

There are many products similar to the Revv in today’s technology market. I know that Lenmar doesn’t have a monopoly in this domain because we have several other products that are comparable, but a couple of aspects that this product does have that may provide a competitive advantage are the portability and sleek look.

When you bundle this with your iPhone or other smartphone, you have a really good-looking combination that I am convinced is a great selling point. The ultra-slim design of the Revv is undoubtedly going to encourage folks to purchase this product. With Apple and other leading smartphone manufacturers struggling to offset technological advancements with longer battery life in phones, these types of products are a necessity rather than a desire.

The Pros

  • Lightweight and Ultra Portable
  • Stylish and Aesthetically Pleasing
  • Provides Full Charge to Smartphone
  • Ease of Use

The Cons

  • Could provide longer battery life on just one full charge
  • Saturated market of battery packs and external chargers make it difficult to differentiate

Conclusion

The Lenmar Revv Battery Power Pack is a product you have to carry around with you! It’s so good that you don’t even know that you have it because of it’s lightweight design and usability. I have been very impressed by this product and look forward to gaining the benefits of this in the future. I would also highly recommend checking out the various other travel related products by Lenmar, I am convinced there will be something out there that meets your needs!

  1. This is a good find indeed! I always have a spare battery for my work blackberry but haven’t seen an alternative for an iPhone, always useful and actually good for safety and piece of mind too, especially if travelling alone or remotely. Good gadget, one for Mr P for Christmas perhaps – I hate it when his phone dies midday!!

    • Thanks Anna! It always makes me think that there is something wrong with my phone whenever it dies around Noon, maybe I have a faulty battery or something but the reality is that everyone experiences this so there is a real market need for these types of products. Lenmar have really designed a portable option here which is huge in today’s society because long gone are the days where we want to carry around bricks or heavy external battery chargers especially when you want something to throw in your pocket or bag.

    • Would definitely encourage you to check out this product! Plus its pretty reasonably priced also if you check out Lenmar’s website. I think smartphone manufacturers really need to start looking at improving battery life because nowadays we are all using them pretty much 24/7.

  2. I’ve just upgraded to an iPhone and know I’ll be doing a lot of instagramming (@travelwithkat) over the next few months and was thinking of purchasing a charger like this. It does indeed look very sleek and easy to carry around. I’ll have a look around but I wouldn’t be surprised if I come back to this one. Thanks for the timely review.

    • As I mentioned in the review, it really is a saturated market out there so there are plenty of options to choose from. Of course, if you don’t mind added weight there are other options out there that will likely charge your phone for longer but this slim design is so aesthetically pleasing and makes life so much easier as you can throw it in your pocket and not even notice you have it!

      Plus, we have just been given a coupon code of TRAVEL10 for any of our readers to receive a 10% discount if they order directly from Lenmar’s website. Plus this code is good for any other of their products so browse around if you wish 🙂

  3. I find these battery packs invaluable as the battery always seems to drain so quickly on my iPhone. I have a mophie charger which I like for its lightweightnses, and a couple from Patriot Memory (one that can charge two devices at once and another that is ideal for camping – well encased and complete with a powerful light/torch as well!). I also have a USB adaptor that fits the cigarette lighter in my car which I find useful, too… you can never have too much charge! 🙂

    • We actually purchased a Mophie and didn’t like it so returned it but maybe we just didn’t give it a chance! I definitely see the benefit of that but I personally prefer to keep the phone as lightweight as possible with just a slimline case and then hook it up directly to a battery charger such as the Revv whenever needed. The USB car chargers are great if you have quick access to your vehicle but I think the portable, dual chargers that you referred to are another great idea especially if you have an iPad or other USB chargeable device.

    • It’s definitely worth it especially because of the slim design! Use the coupon code TRAVEL10 to get 10% discount if you order directly from Lenmar’s website.

  4. This is interesting info Chris. My husband and daughter both have packs which fit around their iPhone and give them probably 3X’s the life I get, but I don’t want to add the bulk of carrying it around all the time. This might be the perfect solution.

    • I guess you have to make compromises with the size of the product. I would much rather have a light option such as this rather than carrying a brick around. Of course I am sure as technology improves we will see companies like Lenmar releasing more products that are lighter but provider longer charges.
