I have long been a big fan of cheero mobile batteries. I found out about it first when I was visiting Tohoku region of Japan three years ago. The first one I saw was their Palette series – compact batteries in gold or pink, made for women.
Since then, cheero kept pushing out innovative products in the mobile battery scene. They are best known for Danboard series, based on a Japanese comic Yotsubato! where a character creates a robot made out of cardboard boxes.
Danboard has been a huge hit, and now they come in different sizes and capacities like Power Plus, Plate, Block, also in Flavour version with various colors. We have Pumpkin and Mint (actually, color wise the mint is in fact light blue).
My every day go-to battery is Energy Plus and Ingress Power Cube (1200 mAh). I switch them depending on which battery is fully charged. They both come with nice pouches. Ingress one lights up and it’s really cool.
My iPhone 6 Plus is pretty good with the battery like (fingers crossed), but when I am out all day for event etc, it’s so nice to have this kind of external batteries. They will charge iPhone 6 for 4.5 times. I love Energy Plus because they come with AC power adaptor. Also? They come with small built-in flashlight. Press the power button for three second or so and it will light up. External batteries are always awesome during the power outages. (which we are prone to in Canada during the winter. Brrr)
Energy Plus was the most powerful battery cheero had at the time (perhaps about an year ago), please note their latest is cheero Power Plus 3 with 13400mAh. This one is half a pound.
My other favourite things from cheero are their cables. I hate Apple Lightening Cable and I know I’m not the only one. cheero has braided Danboard cable Length varies from 10cm(3.6inch) to 180cm(6ft), but I recommend you get at least 25cm(9.6inch).
I’ve been watching cheero’s success from over here and I can vouch for their commitment for their products and great customer service. (They are from Japan, after all.) So now you can imagine my delight that cheero products are available in Amazon.ca! Yay! This would make your holiday shopping a little easier, no?
cheero will be at CES in January 2016. Their booth number is 6138. Say hi if you’re going to be there.
(Disclaimer: I have received most of the cheero products to test them out, but no, I was not paid to write this post. I really like their products.)
