(Review) Folomov A1 Magnetic Charger

Supplied via folomov for product review

This is a short review of the single battery charger from folomov, this charger acts as a power bank as well with the male/female USB connector. The A1 is a simple and fuss-free Lithium Ion charger with a useful power bank feature. the charger itself is very small, small enough to fit in a pocket and be there when you need to use it as a power bank in an emergency.

You can purchase this charger on amazon for $8.87

Final Thoughts

The Folomov A1 magnetic charger is a great charger if you don’t want to pull out a big charger for just 1 battery, it charges fairly quick and does the job well if you need a quick charge. The discharge feature is great if you want to charge a USB device such as a phone and your on the go, you can just pull out your flashlight and use some of the battery to charge up your mobile device. Overall I recommend this product for its usefulness and simplicity and size.

Nice, concise review. Looks good and inexpensive.

I have the Olight version, (without the power bank function), and they’re also great little chargers. The Olight has the advantage of not having to think about the + – connections. You can hook up the magnets to any end and it automatically detects positive and negative.

This is just an amazing product at a great price.
Definitely something for the li-ion light users and so small it can pack anywhere.
I keep mine in my car.

Great review!
These look like good stocking stuffers.
Now we need a volume deal buy or code or something.

Great value at the listed price though and what I need for bug out bag.
Thanks for the heads up.
Later,

Keith

I notice he has used some tables from my review, without giving any credit.
