There are many times when it's just nice to have a portable backup battery around. For fifty bucks, you can typically snag a pack with a capacity anywhere between 10,000mAh to 15,000mAh, enough to recharge a modern high-end smartphone four or five times. Yet if EC Technology's new external battery pack available on Amazon is genuine, it offers a whopping 22,400mAh of power. That much juice could recharge a phone up to ten times, all for the same $49.99.
Amazon shows this price point as a savings of $130. But there's an issue - all of the reviews refer to smaller versions of the battery, such as the capable but less mind-blowing 12,000mAh and 16,800mAh offerings. We haven't tested the device ourselves, so we can't verify if it packs as much power as it claims. However, it does seem more plausible than this even larger 50,000mAh battery from some unnamed Chinese company that we seriously doubt is legit. Best to avoid that one.
Overall, EC Technology's products appear to be pretty well-rated. If its new battery is the real deal, this isn't a bad deal at all. If it isn't, well, the worst you may walk away with is a solid 12,000mAh battery instead.
