Overview of batteries Rombica TR88 NEO and NEO TR136 with powerful lights

Finally warmed up and you spend more time on the street, and with the rapid discharge rate of modern phones – no external battery is often not enough. But if you are going to the nature with an overnight stay – with high probability you will also need a flashlight. The company Rombica offers to do it all with one device.

Today we are talking about new products from the company Rombica: two batteries with powerful flashlights TR88 NEO and NEO TR136. Lanterns in the external batteries used to it, but usually they are small and carry only a small additional function. For example, to Shine under the sofa, if something had rolled over it, find where I hid the cat ☺ or to illuminate the keyhole. In other words, a task for which flash in the phone will fit. Rombica also installed powerful LED light emitting diodes, making a "light" one of the main functions of the device and part of the design.

Package contents

The Devices are sold in the cutest boxes with Windows through which you can make sure that the inside is exactly what is painted on a box – practical.

Appearance

Batteries have the same size and almost the same weight, just different colors and capacity of the installed cells. TR88 – gray color with a yellow rifle, and TR136 – green color with a brown rifle

Plastic Housing coated with soft touch paint. The case the paint has the features of – on one hand it is pleasant to the touch, on the other hand collects dirt and fingerprints. But while turning the handle, neither one of the batteries, the fingerprints were not noticeable. However, if you are going to use the battery in extreme conditions, it is best to pay attention to dark green model – it will be on the dirt is less noticeable.

That the device is aimed at use in not the most favorable conditions they also say the plugs protecting the connector for charging of the battery at one end and an outlet for charging from the battery at the other end. Sit tight, it just will not open. Water resistant manufacturer not stated, but judging from the casing, the batteries just will not give up.

Lantern

The Manufacturer claims the power of the LEDs 200 LM. In practice, it is difficult to assess, as the flashlight has a wide beam angle of 180 degrees. For a full understanding enough to wait until night and turn on the flashlight at home when you turn off room light. LED-LEDs Shine a soft, diffused, slightly yellowish light, perfectly illuminating your whole room. For camping fits perfectly! If the battery is to hang the carbine, will be lit the whole tent or what is around her. The light is activated by double pressing the power button. Given the rather tight the power button accidental activation of the flashlight in the bag is practically impossible.

The flashlight has 4 modes of light: low, medium or high brightness and a strobe mode. Strobe mode for me has always been shrouded in mystery. Why is it needed? On the other hand, the worse of it will not. As the light is soft and diffused, turning on the strobe mode Rombica NEO TR not blind, unlike focused flashlights.

After several days of use begin to have thoughts about the unusual ways of using batteries that did not come. For example, if on the terrace of the Villa is not carried out normal light, so you can hang and will be more than enough. And no hassle with the wires. Leaving before dawn on a fishing trip, he always took a flashlight. But it is narrowly focused and they are not very convenient to use, TR88 or TR136 – much easier. And during the banal interruptions of the house with a flashlight will be more pleasant to wait out the darkness, than without it or with little wax candles. Despite the apparent focus of camping, this battery can be useful not only in the campaign.

Testing

According to the manufacturer, the flashlight can Shine up to 50 hours.

Tested the flashlight in NEO TR88. At maximum brightness it worked 18 hours on average 49 hours, and at the minimum more than 120 hours! Based on the difference capacity, the battery TR136 NEO is able to work 27 hours on maximum brightness, 75 hours on average brightness and about 185 hours on minimum brightness. Impressive work.

For comparison, I used the bike light 700 Lumens, battery powered at 3000 mAh. When live compared to the average brightness it is roughly equivalent to the TR-am. Measurements using the sensor in the phone, confirm the visual comparison. However, the bike light to medium rage works just 3.2 hours. Ie if it had a battery like TR88, that worked would be 9.4 hours. I.e. almost two times less! While TR-ing for maximum brightness heat up slightly. Bike light after an hour of work significantly hot, and TR-ing slightly warm.

As for the number of charges, Rombica NEO TR88 charge iPhone 6 4 times, and TR136 – 7 times. Given the enormous running time of flashlight, and the phone to charge all night to Shine and still have a charge.

Conclusion

During the meeting with NEO and NEO TR88 TR136 the device has shown itself good points: solidly assembled, with interesting design, high uptime and nice soft light. Rombica proved that the flashlight batteries may be a small additional function, and one of the main with an impressive time of work. Given the small difference in cost compared to batteries without such a strong flashlight, these models are suitable not only for lovers of outings with an overnight stay.
