Multiple charges for iPhone 6s

The Samsung Battery Pack EB-PG935 has a 10,200mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can charge an Apple iPhone 6s at least three times.

Available in silver or black (version reviewed), this power bank has a smooth aluminium housing. On its top, there is a power button, a four-LED battery indicator, a micro-USB charging port and the 2.0A outport port.

I like its symmetrical, curved sides that is reminiscent of Samsung's latest Note7 smartphone.

While it is sturdy, it is rather thick at 22mm. Gripping it for a long time with my iPhone 6s Plus caused my palm to ache.

It is supposed to charge Samsung mobile devices with Fast Charge support, such as Galaxy S6 and Note 4 or later, from zero to 50 per cent in around 30min.

But it took 1hr 40min for the Samsung Battery Pack to charge my iPhone 6s Plus from 50 per cent battery life to full.

•Verdict: If you own the latest Samsung Galaxy smartphones, the Samsung Battery Pack EB-PG935 should be ideal for you.
