A Closer Look

The box arrived in pristine shape, and was very well constructed to ensure the power bank was well protected from the potential battle scars of shipping. The contents included the power bank with built in lightning cable, a standard USB to mini USB cable as well as a product insert. The initial charge was around 80-100%, which was indicated by the blue charge indicator. Just less than an hour and it was fully charged. Most power banks I have used usually have a 60% to 80% charge on arrival.
The OLALA S100i 13000mAh Power Bank is a robust piece of technology. The ports are easily found and accessed. The built in Lightning cable is Apple MFI Certified to ensure 100% sync and charge compatibility, while eliminating the need to carry that extra charging cable we often lose. The cable extends 2 ¼ inches or 5.7cm from the device, which is slightly longer that it’s smaller brother. Upon pressing the charge level button, up to four blue LEDs light up and define the current charge level. When charging, the LEDs blink one at a time until all four are illuminated indicating a full charge. The OLALA S100i power Bank can also charge two devices simultaneously, using the built in connector and the included USB cable. To charge a device, press the power button on the Power Bank, then plug in your device until it is fully charged.
The power Bank is very close in size to an IPhone 6, however it is much thicker.
