Review: Portable Wall Charger & Battery Pack for iPhone & Other Devices

Over two years ago, I reviewed the original ReCHARGE+ charger from Thinium. At CES, I met with the representatives from Thinium and had the opportunity to try the new model, the ReCHARGE+ 2.0 ($ 69.99). What sets the ReCHARGE+ apart from other chargers is the integrated A/C prongs that fold flat, along with the phone charging port that also folds flat. Thinium has improved on the original in several key ways.

Whereas the original model was just for Lightning devices, the ReCHARGE+ 2.0 accommodates Lighting, microUSB, and USB-C through add-on adapters—just make sure you don’t lose them. The new model also has a built-in kickstand and an optional magnetic plate to secure the connection.

  • Integrated A/C prongs
  • Built-in kickstand
  • Folds flat for travel
  • 3,000 mAh of power


  • Doesn’t use Qi wireless charging

Final Verdict

The new ReCHARGE+ 2.0 from Thinium improves on the original, making it a valuable part of your travel gear.
