It is really frustrating when you notice that your Smart phone’s battery life are draining fast. I myself experienced it with my Android phone, so I looked for some solutions to make it last longer just to eliminate my frustration. :)

Recently, I saw an ad deal in Groupon on Genius’ latest product, the ECO-u200 Universal Portable Battery. A portable battery or portable charger that can charge your smart phone even when you use it.

I bought it because it’s around 44% off! The regular price of this product in the Philippines is 1700 Pesos and I just got it for only 949 Pesos. The device has a good LED indicator and has a compact size which is easy to carry.

The performance ECO-u200

This product includes 2600mA capacity which can extend the battery life of your smart phone up to eleven hours. I tried it with my Samsung Galaxy S2. With my android phone, the full charge of this portable battery can charge my device up to 80% in 3 hours (portable battery is fully drained).

The charging of this portable battery on the other hand using USB from my computer takes around 6 hours to 8 hours to make it full.

Nevertheless, I am satisfied with it. At least it somehow reduce my frustration with regards to battery status of my smart phone.
