What's good

  • Huge battery capacity – enough to fully recharge smartphone 5 times and tablets 1 time
  • LCD display accurately shows battery levels
  • Passthrough charging
  • Charge two devices at the same time

What's bad

  • Weak torch
  • Takes a long time to recharge

Portable battery packs are a must-have for travelers, especially if they plan on going to more remote areas of the world. In the past, many of the options were expensive and only offered an additional charge or two. Intocircuit's Power Castle 11200 combats both problems as it is affordable and has a huge battery capacity. How huge? As the name suggests, the Power Castle boasts a battery size of 11,200mAh, enough for critics to get five full recharges into a smartphone and one for tablets. It also has two USB ports for simultaneous charging in case you have more than one device that needs power.

Despite housing such a large battery, it is still very portable measuring 3.9 x 7.1 inches and weighing only 250 grams. While slightly heavier than its competitors, critics didn't notice the additional weight when put in a handbag or rucksack. A brushed aluminum body protects the internal hardware and also gives it what experts call a "tough guy" aesthetic. It isn't just looks though as they add it feels sturdy overall.

The biggest selling point of the Power Castle 11200 isn't its battery though, it's the LED display. It is the first battery pack on the market to use this intelligent LCD display. This screen tells the exact percentage of battery left and which of the two ports are in use. It uses a blue backlight which automatically turns off after a couple seconds though it can be relit by a tap of a button. Experts found the digital display incredibly useful as they knew exactly when to recharge it. In terms of getting the battery back to full capacity, experts note it did take longer than its rivals. Luckily, it also supports passthrough charging, which means you can have your smartphones/tablets plugged into the Power Castle 11200 while it is being charged. Reviewers discovered that the devices plugged into the battery pack would actually charge faster than the pack itself but, as PC Advisor states, "…this is still easier than separately plugging in everything overnight."

Perhaps the one feature that disappointed experts was its torch. While a good idea, the LED light unfortunately was only a few lumens and was not bright enough for reviewers. Travgear adds that it is, "Handy round a tent at night, but it's an extra feature that's not high-grade enough."

Although it might take a long time to charge and falls short in the torch department, critics still highly recommend the Power Castle 11200. XDA-Developers state, "It's fast, reliable, filled with features and pretty good looking."

Small for the amount of power it packs

from BroGeek

I give the IntoCircuit Power Castle a solid buy. The IntoCircuit Power Castle is available in gray and silver and, as of this writing, costs $20.99 on Amazon. This guy is small enough to fit into your jacket pocket along with your smartphone while you’re running to catch your connecting flight. Having 2 outputs and an LCD panel to tell you the battery percentage gives it versatility and features that put this guy well above others I have tried.

Pretty impressive considering the low price

from XDA Developers

I would definitely recommend getting this gadget. It’s fast, reliable, filled with features, and pretty good looking. It does make some noise when charging, but this is certainly not a deal breaker. If you are looking for an affordable power bank that’s built with quality, the IntoCircuit Power Castle 11,200 mAh may be the right choice.

This meaty battery is an off-grid Godsend

from TravGear

If you depend on mobile devices a lot when you travel and, crucially, often end-up in off-grid areas, this meaty PowerBank battery is for you. Solidly built, easy to understand and versatile enough to handle smartphones and tablets simultaneously, its weight-to-power ratio is impressive enough for it to live in the side pocket of any traveller’s daysack. However, its torch is far too basic to add any serious value.

Amazing-value power bank with an LCD screen

from Tech Advisor

Intocircuit's Power Castle 11200 is extraordinary at this price for offering an LCD display, useful capacity, auto-on/-off and passthrough charging. It offers slightly more capacity than its closest rivals, but it will take longer to refill its own battery. Highly recommended.

All in all the IntoCircuit PC11200 is well designed and handles any charging task that you might need to do. At the time of writing this article, the IntoCircuit PC11200 is only $32.99 which is a steal for this size battery.

Droid Horizon

Plenty of juice to charge your devices

from Droid Horizon

Usually referred to as a “power brick,” the Intocircuit Power Castle offers a high capacity, 11200 mAh battery for an emergency scenario or even as a handy solution for charging all those expensive toys we own. I’m sure everyone that reads Android based sites have a few phones, a tablet or 2 and a Bluetooth speaker of some description. All these shiny things need lots of juice to run and if there was ever a technology that hasn’t really evolved that much, I’d say it was battery life. These charging solutions are vastly popular because they fit into our hectic schedules and life styles of always being on the go. You don’t have to fear about being far from a plug any more, throw the Intocircuit Power Castle in your work bag along with your lunch box or briefcase if you’re a businessman and you’ll be able to charge all your gadgets. as long as you have the correct cable/cord.
