It seems that each new power bank brings some new and useful feature or larger power capacity for charging your smartphone and other devices. The Juice Box S2 from OXA USA does both.
While not the largest capacity power bank that I’ve come across, the Juice Box is still impressive with 10000mAh of power.

The Juice Box S2 is equipped with 2 Type A USB output ports. One is a 1.0A standard charger and the other is a fast charging 2.1A. The dual USB ports allow 2 devices to charge simultaneously. So far, that sounds like a fairly typical power bank but there are a couple of new features that I found to be particularly useful.
Most power banks use a series of led lights to show the charging status and power levels available. That’s certainly not a bad system but it does leave some guesswork as to the exact power level at any given time. The Juice Box has a bright blue led screen that clearly shows the Power In, Power Out, and the Total % of power available at any given time. So instead of looking at a typical led power gauge showing 3 led lights (which means power is between 51% and 75%), The Juice Box will display the power level as 73%. It gives you a real number instead of guesswork. The led screen is large enough to easily read the displayed numbers shown in black on the bright blue backlight. The blue light will come on automatically when you plug in a device for charging and will go out again after a few seconds, leaving the status number still visible on the grayed out screen. Just press the power button once to briefly light the screen again to check the charging status.
The Juice Box S2 is 3.8″x 2.5″x 0.7″ and weighs about 10 ounces which makes it a comfortable fit in your hand when using the other nice feature which is a flashlight. Pressing the power button on the side of the Juice Box twice will activate the bright flashlight which is on the opposite side of the device. While the light lacks the distance of some other flashlights, it sheds plenty of light for several feet to light your way in an emergency. Pressing the power button twice will turn the light off again.
The OXA Juice Box S2 is constructed with Samsung Grade A power cells and premium microchips to ensure high quality and the best performance. The advanced Power Lock technology provides standby time up to 6 months after the Juice Box is fully charged. This technology also ensures battery safety with automatic shutdown to prevent damage from short circuit or over charging. They estimate more than 500 recharge cycles over the life of the battery and potentially 10 years of recharging usage.
The compact size of the Juice Box S2 fits easily in briefcase, backpack, or purse and is one of the most versatile and innovative power banks available. It would be a useful and thoughtful gift for the safety of someone you care about. It is available on Amazon for the very reasonable price of $18.99. It’s also available on Newegg for $25 with free shipping. Visit OXA USA online to find out more about this power bank and their other great products.
