Summary:
TYLT Keeps its reputation going with the Energi 5K+. This  Power Bank achieves overall high performance testing scores while still being a useful and portable all-in-one charger. The Energi 5K+ comes with 2 built in cables giving you both Micro USB and Lightning connections at all times, this is the main difference and advantage over the TYLT Energi 5K, which only has a single built in Micro USB cable.

As with most premium portable batteries you are going to drop a bit more money into it, but you are getting a high quality product and with its built in cables, its truly a flexible well rounded device. While i think the retail price is a bit steep, if you are able to get this on sale, I’m sure this device will serve your short term charging needs for years to come.

The device itself is nice if you want a decent stand up dock for your iDevice. It woks fine with the smart cover since but thicker cases may prevent it from seating properly. Some nice features are that is has “auto-on” so the iPad starts charging as soon as its docked, no need to press a button. It also has pass-thru charging allowing you to always keep the dock plugged in. it will charge the device and or the internal battery as needed. The main complaint is the battery itself. Being advertised for the iPad the 5200mAh battery is already pretty small. The iPad has an internal battery of over 11,500 mAh (3rd Gen).
The internal battery is proving to be about 60% efficient in my numerous controlled tests, showing that you get an effective output of about 3100mAh. This would get you roughly a 25% charge to a dead iPad
