Chargerito Keychain Wall Charger REVIEW

When you carry a mobile phone, you are constantly worried about it running out of juice. I use my phone constantly throughout the day and almost always have it resting on a wireless charging dock. But, my fiance has an iPhone 7 and its battery drains a lot throughout the day so she has to plug it in at least once for a full charge during the day or she will have a dead battery by 5pm. What do you do if you need to make sure you have a power source ready to charge your phone at a moment’s notice? You get a tiny charging device like the Chargerito.

DETAILS

USER EXPERIENCE

I’ve had pocket chargers before and I really admire the design of the Chargerito. The folding aspect of it is something new to me but it works pretty well. I do think the plastic is a little flimsy. It’s so lightweight that I could see it easily breaking with too much use. I charged an iPhone (with and without a case) using the Chargerito and found that the phone tends to lean on the Chargerito. It’s designed to be sort of a charging stand but doesn’t seem strong enough to hold the weight and stay plugged into a wall out. One of the times I charged a phone using the device, the phone was able to rest on it instead of relying on the ‘stand’ function of the Chargerito.

In addition to the strength of the Chargerito’s structure, I had a couple of consistency problems when using it to charge an iPhone. During one charging session, the Chargerito got very warm (112 degrees — measured with an Infrared Thermometer) and other times it remained cool to the touch (only around 73 degrees — as shown with the image below). I would feel more secure with the Chargerito if I didn’t have instanced of it overheating. The charger works. I was able to gain about 49% battery power within 52 minutes (0.94% per minute) which is pretty quick for a 5V/1A charger. And, with it being so small, it’s a huge convenience to keep a charging option with you at all times. I would just use caution while charging devices to watch for heating issues.
