Add Power and Style with the Add PowerBank from Lepow

There is always need for more battery life, and power banks are a must-have in my gadget bag. I often carry several in fact. So it was cool to see the Add series of Power Banks from Lepow. There are several features that set this product apart.

First, the materials, colors, and design are like a cross between Ikea and Greenpeace. The cork cases and felt materials mean nothing is left over and everything can be reused or repurposed. But what really sets the Add apart from the competition is the piggyback feature.  A second 4500mAh Power Bank attaches magnetically to the primary 4500mAh Power Bank, and a flip down switch connects the two units electronically. The two units become one and power is doubled!

It's nice to see that, after all of the products I've reviewed, vendors can come up with novel, functional, and beautiful devices that still surprise me!
