It doesn’t pack enough juice to fully recharge your smartphone from flat to full at just 480 mAh. But the Thino Charger functions as a charge cable as well as a backup battery — and a fast one at that thanks to the option of cutting off data transmission at the flip of a switch for three fold increases in charging speed. Other handy features include a dual-sided USB plug, a three LED power indicator, and a short flat cable that locks securely into its body for looping around a keychain. The fact that its 7000-series sandblasted aluminum enclosure matches the device’s aesthetic to that of high end smartphones is a plus.
