Great combination of looks, weight, capacity, and features...

I think I've tried out just about every level of external battery pack from 2200mAh to 15000mAh as part of a series of reviews. The latest (and probably not the last) is the Bolse M3 6600mAh Dual Port External Battery Pack. Like every other Bolse external battery I've used, the M3 is an excellent combination of looks, weight, capacity, and features.
The 6600mAh capacity puts it in the mid-range of battery packs you'd normally find. The M3 has two ports for output, with one powered for a normal smartphone charge and the other powered for charging an iPad. Or, if you want to be popular with your friends, you can charge two smartphones at once. Charging the battery pack is done with a normal micro-USB cord (included), and the cord is also used for the included plug adapters (Apple 30-pin, mini-USB, and normal Blackberry/Samsung/Nokia/other smartphones). There's a velvet pouch included that will hold the cord and adapter plugs so you can keep things in one place (the plugs could easily become scattered).
Like the Bolse M2, the M3 has a digital readout on the front to indicate how much power you have remaining. I find this feature incredibly useful, as it takes the guesswork out of interpreting whether one LED bar means 2% or 22% power left. This feature has spoiled me, and it's one of the reasons why these Bolse units are among my go-to choices in battery packs.
The Bolse M3 6600mAh Dual Port External Battery Pack is definitely in my usage rotation if I need a battery pack that will get me through the day with my iPad (or through two or three days with my iPhone). It's a great choice for the price and features.
