First impressions are good. Power Pack features attractive, easy-to-open packaging that doesn’t require hacking with scissors. Inside is a power pack, a mini USB to micro USB cable and instructions. The USB cable is only 10 cm long and can be used to recharge the power pack and charge other devices. Some may debate the length of the cable, but I think it’s useful and prevents all tangles. Plus, I have very long cables when I need them.

The body of the unit is 7 cm wide and 11 cm deep. Scale tips with a depth of 1.7 cm and 175 grams. The top and bottom faces are covered with a soft-touch rubber coating, while the middle is a metallic-looking plastic. At the bottom, there are four small nodes for feet, and at the top are four blue LEDs and a small button. Pressing the button for two seconds will illuminate the LED to show the battery charge level.
Around the edge are three USB ports, 2x standard and 1x micro-USB. The latter is used to recharge the power pack and the former to charge other devices. As is common with similar products, one port is rated at 2.1 A (Port A) and the other at 1 A (Port B). However, unlike some of the Power Pack’s competitors, both USB ports can be used for charging while recharging the device.
The power pack is a 5,200 mAh unit, which Verbatim says in the packaging will recharge the smartphone 2.5 times. My experience with recharging the Nexus 4 (2,100 mAh internal battery) is that this isn’t too far from the truth. Also, the blue LED is a good guide to battery level – consider each LED 25%, so four is 100%, three is 75% and so on. Below is a mandatory screenshot of Battery+ showing the charging rate for the Nexus 4, which is almost identical to charging from the main charger.
In summary, the Verbatim Dual USB Power Pack is a compact unit. The soft-touch rubber coating provides a slightly softer feel and is a valuable feature when recharging. My only concern is that I think the Power Pack is a little expensive at £41.99 RRP, and there are other models that offer more capacity for less (but beware of non-chargeable and non-rechargeable batteries. Meanwhile). As this is a brand new product, no “street price” has been revealed, but at around £25 the Dual USB Power Pack offers value for money.
