The portable external battery pack face off: Neptor vs. Lepow

It is time for another product showdown and this time it is a battle of the juice boxes, with the Lepow Moonstone going up against Neptor's Dual Port Portable Battery Charger. Lepow's Moonstone is an external battery pack that is elegant and powerful with 9000 mAh of juice and two ports to charge from. Neptor's entry is a smaller juice box with less power, 5600 mAh, which also includes two charging ports but adds an LED flashlight. Ready for the mash up, it is time to see which pack will come out victorious.

I got the Moonstone first so I will start with that and I have got to say it is an elegant accessory. The battery pack is palm sized and a bit thick so it is not very pocket friendly, but with a charger that looks like this why would I want to hide it? On the bottom is a button to check the battery life with four LED lights to indicate when an overnight charge is necessary as the recharge time is approximately nine hours to recharge. The mobile lifeline also comes in a nice wool case to keep shiny, but that wasn't all that was in the box, in the bottom was a bag containing eight fun and useful accessories so make sure you check all content of the package as they almost got missed.
Next up is the dual port charger from Neptor and this small pack packs a punch for its size with a whopping 5600 mAh and a flashlight to boot. The small size allow this to fit easier in a pocket and the light was actually useful in a dark room or vehicle looking for something like vehicle registration or finding an item in the bottom of a purse. Neptor did not use a glossy coat but went with soft touch coating instead, which felt nice and stayed cleaner. There is also a single button to press once and check the remaining battery life, double tap it to turn the light on and off.

In the end, am siding with the Moonstone with its power. However, if you are someone that does not need massive amount of power, Neptor took the very close second for its and size and added light. Lepow's Moonstone is available now from Amazon in Sapphire Blue for the price of $39.99 dollars. At less than half the size and more than half with juice with and added light, Neptor's dual port charger with flashlight is available in five different colors for $49.99.
