Review: Tizi Makes an Elegant, Slim Charger with Integrated Lightning Cable

I'm always on the lookout for the ideal portable charger, as you can never have enough battery life. The Tizi Flachmann Ultra ($44.99) may be the best yet. I'm not surprised, because I've used other items from Tizi and they are always attractive and well designed.


The Flachmann Ultra has a beautiful, thin design (thinner than an iPhone) and uses quality materials. It is well built and has an integrated Lightning cable. You still need to bring a microUSB cable to charge the Flachmann Ultra's 3200mAh battery but at least the package includes one.


  • Beautiful design
  • Quality materials
  • Well built
  • Integrated Lightning cable
  • Remarkably thin


  • Still needs a microUSB cable (included)

Final Verdict

If you are looking for a battery pack that won't add much bulk, look at the Tizi Flachmann Ultra.
