Dark Energy is probably wondering when battery technology will keep up with everything else. Perhaps that’s why we have the Dark Energy Reservoir, an 8,000mAh battery pack barely bigger than an iPhone.
The Dark Energy Reservoir is a small brick of a battery. Two USB ports are used for charging your devices, and the microUSB port between them is used for charging the device itself.
Using the Reservoir is easy: when the battery pack is fully charged, you simply plug your USB cables into it and into your phone or tablet. It can charge two devices at once, but that’ll suck the power out of the Reservoir a little quicker.
The Dark Energy Reservoir is only slightly bigger than an iPhone, measuring 5.5 x 2.69 x 0.47 inches and weighing just under 6 ounces.
Once your devices are plugged in, you just press the power button on the Dark Energy Reservoir and they’ll start charging. If there aren’t any devices connected and you press the power button, the light indicators will glow to show you how much juice is left in the thing. There are three dot lights, each representing about 33% of battery life.
Having 8,000mAh in a slim, pocketable device is hugely convenient, especially at a time where our smartphones are getting greedier for more juice. Our only gripe is the price. At $129, it’s quite expensive. The Mophie Powerstation Duo, with 12,000mAh is the same price, but you get more capacity for your money.
The bottom line. It’s easy to use, looks the part, and gives you confidence that your phone or tablet won’t die on you.
