The Lumsing Harmonica 10400mAh Portable Power Bank Review & Giveaway

Welcome to exotic1, If you have followed my blog you know that translates to "Unique One". I love finding unique products to try and share with my family and friends. Today I'm excited to introduce you to Lumsing's Harmonica 10400mAh Portable Power Bank. 




For those that have never heard of a portable power bank battery it is a power source to charge electronics devices such as android phones, tablets, iPods, iPads and more during power outages or on the go. Living in the country when we lose power it can be days before our power is restored. It's important to have a nice power bank to keep our cell phones charged for emergencies. The Lumsing Harmonica 10400mAh Portable Power Bank came nicely packaged and included a USB cable and a protective carrying case with instructions. I immediately thought what a great gift this would make someone on my holiday list.



We do a lot of geocaching and nine times out of ten there is no power where we set up camp. That's when the power banks come in real handy. I like to have not just one but several power banks to take camping. This way I don't have to worry about my handheld GPS going dead. I can keep it charged so we don't get lost and we can continue to have fun geocaching. I can keep my android phone charged to keep in touch on Facebook and Twitter while sitting around the camp fire at night too. At bedtime I like to read on my kindle app on my iPad 2 to help me fall asleep and the power bank keeps it charged so although I'm enjoying nature by day I can also enjoy the tech life by night. 




The Lumsing Harmonica 10400mAh Portable Power Bank features two outputs. One output is 1.A the second is 2.1A that's a total of 3.1A which means it can charge two electronic devices at the same time too. That is fantastic because I was able to charge my iPad 2 and my cell phone at the same time. It also has an on/off switch. When you turn it on it shows 4 led lights. Each light indicates 25% of power available. If one light is on that means you have 25% , two lights on mean 50%, three lights on means 75%  and four lights mean fully charge at 100%. The lights blinks when charging so you know the unit is working. 





I wanted to make sure this power bank could fully charge both my devices so I put the Lumsing Harmonica 10400mAh Portable Power Bank to the test. I plugged in both devices. I checked it 4 hours later and my Motorola Moto G Phone was fully charged and the iPad 2 was at 58% charged (keep in mind an iPad 2 requires a lot of power). I checked it again 3 hours later and the iPad was fully charged. The battery life indicator light on the Lumsing Harmonica showed only 1 light lite which means it had less than 25% left. I knew at this point it would also charge my android phone several times   



One of the features I liked is the size and weight of this device. It was approximately the same width as my cell phone just longer which made it easy to hold onto. It also has a slight curve to it that also makes it easier to hold. It's called a Harmonica and it's shape actually reminds me of a Harmonica instrument.  To give you a better idea of the size I took a picture of it with a regular size playing card. The actual device measures 5.4" long by 2.3" wide by 0.8" thick. 





When I discovered Lumsing offered a "Portable Battery Combo 3 Haromonica 10400mAh Power Bank Series Package" I was thrilled because if your like me and need to take your tech gadgets with you no matter where you are and have family members that do to this combo pack is great for you. Buying the Combo 3 can save you money. It comes with 3 colors Black, White and the Champagne Gold. You can purchase the Combo 3 pk on Amazon right now for $45.99 with FREE SHIPPNG~!  Now that's a deal. If you only need one you can order just one on their web site here at Lumsing.
This also comes with a worry free 18 month warranty. I found working with Lumsing representatives to be prompt, courteous and such a pleasure to work with. 
The only thing that I can think of that would of made this product any better is if it had included a wall charger. I have one that is compatible that I can use but not everyone does. I like being able to recharge the power bank using my home outlet plug-in. Not many companies include them but in my opinion it would be nice and convenient if they did. 
I feel fortunate to have received one to review for my honest opinion and the good news is Lumsing is also going to give one away. You can enter using the Gleam widget below.
