Final Verdict Reviews:Slappa Portable Power Bank Unit

POWERBANK

Slappa’s Portable Power Bank dual charging unitpower  is a must have for anybody with electronic devices… so EVERYBODY! What can you really say about a power charging unit. It does its job perfect. Majority of the time i’m on my phone either texting,tweeting, or just playing music. Phones get drained pretty quickly so having this power bank really prevents me from having to look for an outlet.  The power bank unit comes equipped with 2 high efficiency USB 1A and 2.1A power outputs, so you can charge 2 devices at once. It’s compatible with Samsung Galaxy , iPods, iPhones, iPads, MP3 players, Blackberry’s, portable GPS devices and other electronic devices. The size of an iPhone and very simple to use. Plug in the usb end into the charging unit, plug the other end to your electronic device and press the button. Usually takes about 10-20 minutes to get my phone fully charged. Final Verdict: 10 out of 10. 5 stars. 2 thumbs up. ummm… umm… yeah… i’m out of things to rate this product.

  • My K/D ratio is flawless, but I’d die a million deaths if it meant I could be with you.
  •  I usually press “X” to pick up weapons. Does that work for picking YOU up as well?

pr_xsolla

For many older game designers, one of the more unusual changes that have impacted the Game Industry is having content to motivate someone to play your game separate from the game itself.

Achievements, trading cards, items and more don’t seem all that important. Yet these seemingly unusual sales tactics can mean big bucks for developers if used properly.

Achievements:

When it comes to most of the tools that we’re going to talk about today, they are commonly associated to being a part of a digital client like Steam, Origin etc. The reason has to do with having a unified profile that the person can showcase their accolades from.
