Where does the SCUD 2800 mAh Power Bank Magic Stick exceed?

When they reached out to me to have this reviewed I was a little iffy on it since I have reviewed a great amount of portable batteries already. I did a little research on it and found it to be packing more than juice for my devices. No, not literally juice, but features that made it stand out from the competition.

I want to point out the ones that are expected and different. For example, there’s a built-in LED flashlight to give you a little more light in small and hard to reach places. I have seen this feature a great amount of time in RAVPower’s products. SCUD is a new company to me and the fact that they have caught on to this little feature has caught my interest in it.

One of my concerns was how much it would charge my devices when I do and don’t use the built-in LED flashlight. The answer is that the LED flashlight didn’t affect the performance of charging my devices. In this case, I used the Nokia Lumia 810, and charged it from 50% to 100% – no issues.

Matter of fact, this brings me to my next feature that is unique and not found in many portable batteries. I’m talking about the built-in Micro USB cable. This has made charging my devices a lot better than usual since I didn’t have to carry an extra USB cable and a portable battery.

The last, but not least admired, feature of the 2800 mAh Power Bank Magic Stick is the built-in TFT Memory Card Reader (aka Micro SD Card Reader). This means you can carry a Micro SD card with you and use it on our computer (via the built-in USB) to transfer files to/from it. Rather than carrying a multi-card reader that is bigger and don’t provide you with these type of features. This is by far my favorite feature of the entire product.

Where does the SCUD 2800 mAh Power Bank Magic Stick lack?

The 2800 mAh Power Bank Magic Stick isn’t perfect and has it share of flaws. Sadly, iOS users won’t be able to take full advantage of this portable battery since it doesn’t offer an extra USB port or compatible cable. The upside to it; is that there’s a Micro SD card slot to carry around a little more storage since iOS devices currently don’t support external storage.

How does the SCUD 2800 mAh Power Bank Magic Stick fit in my life?

Personally, I use it to keep my devices charged since it’s crucial for me to be up-to-date on information. I don’t see myself using the built-in Micro SD Card Slot a great amount, but it’s always good to have it since it could be used as a backup storage unit.

Why should you purchase this for yourself?

The 2800 mAh Power Bank Magic Stick has every feature the average consumer want and need without charging a price that seems unreasonable. SCUD understands you and reads your body language. You carry a smartphone all the time, so here it’s best friend.
