The battles of the mobile phone and tablet war’s have been going on for quite some time now and it won’t ever stop. Yes, we all want more features added to our devices but in order to continuously operate these features, we have to worry about power life. We have all experienced power cycle issues due to adding additional features using hardware and software which will drain the living juices out of the battery. During heavy usage such as playing games and/or watching videos, we can’t avoid the limited power issues when using them. Choiix has provided us with an answer where it’s applicable to any portable device we carry on a daily basis, mainly cell phones and tablets now a days.
Choiix has come up with many different alternatives in providing easy to use mobile phone and tablet accessories, even though they seem new to the market we do not have to worry since they are Cooler Masters subsidiary companies. Today UMLan would like to introduce the Choiix Power Fort C-2021-K1S0 5600 mAh, which will charge up any of the following devices:
Mobile Phones – up to 28 hrs.
Tablets – up to 6 hrs.
Portable Gaming Consoles – up to 20 hrs.
PDA’s or GPS – up to 24 hrs.
MP3 Players – up to 172 hrs.
Bluetooth Devices – up to 133 hrs.
A power bank is a very broad market which comes in many different designs and capacities, most importantly keep in mind the battery material. In honest words, we really wish batteries lasted a lifetime and maintains fully operational but it doesn’t due to wear and tear with multiple charging periods based on the Nickel-Cadmium, Alkaline, or Lithium-ion charge. The best choice “Choiix” is to use Lithium-ion batteries because it doesn’t need to fully drain before recharging, it definitely will last longer than any other Nickel-Cadium batteries in the market, and will not damage or limit the memory of these charging batteries.
Next we worry about pricing, pricing batteries or power banks are very difficult to understand due to the commodity cost of products and longevity. The pricing is affected by mAh (milliamp hours) which energy can be stored into one full charge. A simple breakdown is higher the mAh, the more power and longer amount of energy stored before fully depleting the battery. So smaller the mAh, the more lack in energy it contains and it is very cheap. But always remember to make sure that it is made with a Lithium-ion battery for longevity, which will really cost you just a few bucks more.

Front of the Package
Rearof the Package
The product packaging is perfectly in a white and orange gift box with a plastic hanger above. The actual product photo dead center and the Choiix Logo to the top left of the box. The text below is product specification and short details of product lifespan.
Turning the box to the rear, we see heck of a lot of detailed features, specifications, and packaging contents are listed for the product. A simple product guide shows you exactly what is on the device which includes a powered USB hub and a LED indicator/Power Button to check the product status.

Rightof the Package
The left side of the package is important since it contains the product certifications to pass requirements from different countries. It also contains the company headquarter information.
To the right side of the box, a simple product logo and name with compatible devices.
Bottom of the Package
Overall View of the Package
On the bottom of the package, I see spelling in multiple languages but i’m not clear on why they may have added that information to the bottom.
Opening the front cover of the gift box package, I see the actual product itself through a window. Printed on the left side of the cover is a multilingual product description for the basic knowledge and facts of the product.
Opening the Box
Out of the Package
Opening the package was easy, pop off the top and slide out the package enclosed in a plastic holder.
What's in the Package
Choiix Power Fort C-2021-K1S0
So after opening and laying out the package, I found:
Choiix Power Fort
Choiix Black Bag
2 x USB Cables
Front of the Product
Back of the Product
From the front view, we can see the input power which can take in a slow stable charge using a mini-USB cable with a 1.0A energy flow.
The back of the product, we can see an output of 2.1A which means much faster output energy to the device.
Left of the Product
Right of the Product
Both left and right side just has the power fort wall, nothing important to see.
Bottom of the Product
Overall look at the Product
On the bottom of the product we can see the Choiix Logo, Country Origin, Certifications, and Power Details which is important to ensure user safety.
There was quite a few tests so we went ahead and charged an iPhone 3GS, iPad2, 6th Gen Nano, also the HP Touchpad. Since the power fort is factory charged at 50%, first charge time for the power bank was approximately 4-5 hours to juice up and took a while to drain out. Here are the initial test times:
iPhone 3GS (1219mAh)
4.5 X 100% Charges
iPad 2 (6930mAh)
1 X 80% Charge
6th Gen Nano (105mAh)
53.25 X 100% Charges
HP Touchpad (6300mAh)
1 X 88% Charge
For any small portable gadgets like mobile phones, we can charge anywhere from 4 full charge cycles to the phone and roughly 53 full charges to the 6th Gen Nano which should include most MP3 devices. I’m not quite certain on whether other tablets are the same mAh but the Choiix Power Fort C-2021-K1S0 can get about 80%+ charge to get any work done if needed, I am pretty sure that Choiix will pack a punch and come out with a monstrous Power Fort catered to business people with notebooks.
My overall product review for the Choiix Power Fort C-2021-K1S0 is that I can understand and feel what Choiix is providing to consumers and it’s all worth the buy for the product. Since I personally work in the manufacturing business, the top reason Choiix is best because of brand and product guarantee. The next important reason will be the product hardware quality because Choiix used a 1.0A input for slow stable charge and 2.1A Output for quick charge to other devices where no other manufacturers have taken acknowledgement to understand the simple concept. Lastly price and its full 500 recharge battery lifecycle which is definitely bang for the bucks, I found the Choiix Power Fort C-2021-K1S0 for sale on Amazon.com priced at $69.99 with free shipping and tax free for me.
Realistically, I never thought such a tiny portable battery can provide such capacity and energy boost. When I first charged the device, I was only expecting about 2 hours to fully charge but I really under estimated the capacity of this bank because of size until I realized I needed to wait about 4-5 hours till full charge. I am quite impressed and pleased with my first Choiix power bank. Choiix is a very faithful company developing such creative assorted mobile and tablet accessories, I would like to say “Thank you again Choiix for such a great product”. UMLan would like to provide Choiix Power Fort C-2021-K1S0 a score of 9/10 for the following pros and cons listed below.
Some pros we found:
