Choiix Power Fort Review

More and more people are becoming reliant on many different technological devices in everyday life. Some people may be businessmen, who run around with their Blackberries and HTCs all day. Others may be cell phone enthusiasts with their Nokias, Samsungs, Motorolas, or LGs, with over 200 applications on their phones (Okay maybe not THAT many, but you get the idea). And of course, those Apple fanboys have their iPhones, iPads, and iPods, boasting over 225,000 available applications at the App Store at press time. But imagine this: What would you do if you were one of the many that came across a battery-dead cell phone in the middle of the road? Well, Choiix, by Cooler Master, has a trick up its sleeves to bring your electronics back to life just about anywhere. Under the name of Power Fort (No, it's not Power Fart, I know what the 8-year-old inside of you is thinking haha), it arrives to the delight and joy of many electronics users. This portable device is not only useful to many people, but is also the consumer's best partner in the battlefield of technological devices. Its 2700 mAh Li-Po battery is sufficiently large to change many devices over. It also has an auxiliary flashlight just in case. Its slim and stylish design won't make it a chore to carry out the door in the morning. Simply put, this little bugger proves to be surprisingly useful, from somewhere as close as a walk to your friend's house, to somewhere as far as going to camp with no power outlets. Read on to find out more about this life saver!
