What is so special about Eveready Ultima Mobile Power?

It is one of the best product that always keep you connect to your loved ones even after you battery dies. You might ask, what is it and how does it help?

Smartphones has been getting powerful hardware but the battery life gets consumed entirely. One simply cannot keep hunting for wall power socket all the time and hence there has been rise of the mobile charger packs or juice packs. Eveready has introduced three such mobile charger packs as the Ultima Mobile 


The Ultima Mobile Power UM52 is top of the line product offering high output current of 2.1 amp which makes it usable to charge even the tablets. Offering two USB out ports, the UM52 supports charging two devices at the same time. The UM52 takes about 6-6.5 hours to get recharged completely. Bearing capacity of 5200 mAh, the UM 52 retains charge for a month and come with variety of charging tips to make it compatible with popular smartphones and tablets. Eveready has priced the Ultima Mobile Power UM52 at Rs 3200. Ultima Mobile Power UM52 offers similar features with high output current of 1 amp and has 2200 mAh capacity. This mobile charging pack recharges in 3.5-4 hours and bundles several charging tips to be compatible with variety of smartphones.

Eveready Ultima Mobile Power UM52 costs Rs 1600. The Eveready Ultima Mobile Power UM08 Multipack is a duo of the mobile charger pack and a USB powered wall charger. The mobile charger pack carries 800 mAh capacity and has dual colour LED indicators for the charging strength and status. It can be easily charged in 3.5 hours using a wall power socket or USB port from a computer.

The bundle costs Rs 1,200

Well, the Eveready Power Bank UM 22 is a smart charger for smart phones that has a rechargeable 2200mAh in-built battery which can be used to charge smartphones at anytime, anywhere. Launched by Eveready, the UM 22 has a micro USB, mini USB and Apple compatible port with which you can connect your smartphone to recharge its battery.

The Eveready Power Bank UM 22 is light weight and is easy to carry in-fact; you can carry it in your pocket. It comes with Overload, Overcharge and short-circuit protection that makes sure your precious smartphone isn’t damaged while charging through it. It has nice little LED indicators that tell you the status of the charge. The UM 22 Power Bank itself takes around 6 hours to charge and can recharge your mobile very fast. It protects itself from self-discharging using a novel shut down kind of mode and has around 30 days of standby time. It is a very useful gadget for all of those who like to have a spare battery for their smartphones as this gadget allows you to charge the battery of your smartphone and there’s no need to replace the spare battery plus, it can be easily carried.

Eveready has announced three new mobile charging power packs and one rapid USB charger - all priced and ranges from Rs 400 to Rs 3200.

Eveready has formally announced four new mobile charging products. Three new mobile charging packs, dubbed as Ultima Mobile Power and rapid charging USB charger, were part of the product announcement. New Eveready Ultima Mobile Power UM52, UM 22 and UM 08 Multipack are the mobile charging packs while the UC 05 is the USB powered mobile charger. These new products will be available from both online based retailers as well as offline vendors - electronics retailers.

Eveready Ultima Mobile Power UM 22 is constructed with thick white plastic material that packs the battery and other circuits inside. UM 22 is about an inch thick and three inches long. This mobile charger is easily pocketable and can be placed at any corner of your backpack or hip-pouch.

The button to start or switch off is located on one of the sides with a micro USB port with IN written under it. This basically means that the UM 22 needs to be connected to a power source for recharging using that micro USB port. Under the start button are four blue colored LED indicators that show the charge remaining in Mobile Power.

Eveready has packed three different adapter ports - micro USB, mini USB and Apple's custom pin adapter. The design of this mobile charging pack is quite pocketable and good enough if you wish to charge your phone at the end of the day. Our only concern is that the sharp edges at the sides of the charger could hurt a bit.

Performance and usage

Eveready has packed 2200 mAh of battery juice in the Mobile Power UM 22. This Mobile Power Bank takes about four hours or a bit more to recharge. With 1 Amp power output, it took about 2 hours and 20 minutes to completely charge the Nexus S's 1500 mAh battery. We completely drained the battery of the Nexus S and recharged it using the UM 22.

The LED indicators showing the charge remaining in the UM 22 were really useful. To top it off, the ability to sustain power for a month is an added advantage.

Another nifty feature we enjoyed is the automatic shut off mode, which basically puts the charger into sleep mode when no smartphone is attached for charging. Eveready promises safe charging and protection from overload.
