The Right Juice for your Tech. Choose LUXA2.

OUR STORY

Right from the onset, LUXA2 has constantly strived to push the boundaries of new portable battery technology, and to meet the constantly changing power demands of the modern day lifestyle. In doing so, our core ethos has always been that of Quality, Performance and Reliability.

Quality,
Performance,
Reliability

LUXA2 achieves this by utilizing high-quality components, with aesthetic appeal and maintaining competitive pricing without compromising any aspect of quality, performance or reliability.

Quality

Achieved by use of LG, Samsung and hi-grade battery cells, world-class circuit boards (figure 1), hand craftsmanship and undertaking of all relevant quality certifications.

Performance

Achieved by use of LG, Samsung and hi-grade battery cells, world-class circuit boards (figure 1), hand craftsmanship and undertaking of all relevant quality certifications.

Reliability

Achieved through vigorous testing for reliability that includes: battery burning, environmental, durability, reliability and regulatory conformity tests.

In fact, we are so confident about reliability that LUXA2 offer a standard two-year warranty on all our portable battery banks.

4. Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) Certification

All LUXA2 battery packs are fully compliant with the RoHS directive (figure 5) to ensure certain substances of high concern such as lead and mercury have not been used in any of our components.

Figure 5: RoHS certifications are labeled on all LUXA2 battery pack products.
PERFORMANCE

1. Power Transfer Efficiency

Our battery packs are designed to provide high power conversion rates which is achieved by the use of high-class board circuitry and chipsets (figure 6) that enable them to optimize efficiency and durability.

Figure 6: LUXA2 power banks provide up to 90% energy efficiency compared to the average 75% offered by standard power banks

2. Input/Output Performance

LUXA2's power bank circuit boards goes through rigorous input/output testing (figure 6.1) to ensure that devices are charged at the optimized state, meaning that whatever the stated input/output performance (figure 6.2), you're guaranteed to know that the performance is constant to ensure fastest possible charging times.

RELIABILITY

1. Battery Burn Test

LUXA2's lithium-ion and lithium-polymer batteries go through vigorous testing procedures to ensure safe and reliable performance.

 

Each and every battery is tested and conditioned for three full cycles (figure 8) to ensure utmost reliability.

2. Environmental Test

All battery banks are tested at high and low temperature ranges (figure 9) to ensure they are capable of handling the majority of environmental conditions that a conventional user may encounter- from the lightest to the most extreme (figure 9.1).


Table 1 highlights the various temperature conditions that all our portable battery banks are tested. These ranges are based on their specific material characteristics and their testing range limits.

Test Details
High Temperature 70 degrees
Low Temperature -20 degrees
Temperature Cycle 70 ~ -20 degrees

3. Durability Test

LUXA2 power banks also go through a variety of durability tests to ensure they are able to withstand the occasional knocks, bumps, drops and any other mishap that might befall it during its life cycle.

Drop Test

All LUXA2 power banks go through intense micro USB and USB insertion and removal tests to ensure reliability of connections and connectors for long lasting longevity. Table 2 below highlights the frequency of these tests that have been undertaken.
