First look at Onaji Pawa Card, A Portable 3-in-1 Emergency Battery

Onaji is a London based company that started off selling phone cases and cables, but their latest project — the Pawa card — aims to solve arguably the biggest problem smartphones have: battery life.

Onaji is a London based company that started off selling phone cases and cables, but their latest project — the Pawa card — aims to solve arguably the biggest problem smartphones have: battery life.

Its 500 mAh battery isn’t going to completely top up the battery of an average smartphone — the iPhone 5 for instance has a tiny 1440 mAh battery compared to the Samsung S5’s 2800 mAh — but Onaji’s Pawa card certainly has enough to pull you through an emergency. And on the subject of emergencies, Onaji have cleverly built in a LED flash light, too.

Of course portability is always an issue with power sources like this, but weighing a mere 32 grams and sizing up at 92mm tall, 58mm wide and 4.9mm thick, the Pawa card is hardly going to be an inconvenience if you decide to carry it in your pocket.

One of the big appeals of this useful little gadget — beyond its internal battery source that is — is it’s multi-device compatibility. Unlike other solutions like the Nomad range of ChargeCards and ChargeKeys, the Pawa card is compatible with micro-USB, Apple 30-pin and Apple Lightning devices. It’s fully capable of charging & syncing functionality, and the ‘pull out’ cables seem to offer a nice amount of range.

I’ll be using this little device over the next few weeks, so stay tuned for a full review soon!
