Patriot offers a complete range of external battery packs, which are perfectly suitable for recharging smartphones or tablets when you're on the run and there is no power plug in sight. In the past we've been looking at other models from Patriot and this time we're having a go at their small, 20 Euro, Fuel+ 2200. In this quick review we're going to find out what this thing can do.

The Fuel+ 2200 and Fuel+ 3000 are about the most compact power banks you can get from Patriot. Unlike the 9000 mAh model we reviewed earlier, the version we tested here features an ultra compact and portable design with a single USB 2.0 connector. In order to make use of this connector you find a microUSB to USB cable in the delivery apart from a manual.
The design of the Fuel+ is clean and simple. Patriot actually has seven different models of the Fuel each one
of them comes in a solid box. Apart from that the dimensions vary, since there
are models with a smaller or larger battery pack. The Fuel+ 2200, which we've
tested here, weighs 63 grams and measures 9.9 x 2.3 x 2.2 cm. On the side, it features a power button with a small LED indicator that
shows four different states of battery charge: 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%. Regarding the connectors, there is a microUSB on a side for charging the Fuel+ and one USB2.0 port on the other side for charging your phone, tablet or any other device.
We give the Patriot Fuel+ 2200 good 4 out of 5 stars.
