The Pebble Time and especially Pebble Time Steel have an insane battery life – a whopping 5 and 9 days for most users, respectively! Unfortunately, the Pebble Time Round sacrificed that wonderful battery life for a thinner form factor. Averaging about two days battery for most of its owners, the Pebble Time Round needs juice a bit more often than it’s older (and slightly thicker) siblings. We found a neat little accessory that Pebble Time Round owners might want to check out!
Until now, there really hasn’t been a great way to charge your Pebble Time Round on-the-go unless you don’t mind carrying around an extra meter of cable in your pocket or bag. For Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel users, this isn’t such an issue thanks to the up to 10 days battery life. Us Pebble Time Round users suffer a bit in the battery department, though.
In order to minimize the impact on your daily carry, we found this tiny little micro USB to Pebble Time Round charging adapter. It works great with standard micro USB cables if you need to juice up quickly. We also tested it pretty thoroughly with portable battery packs and it never failed us. For around $7 we definitely think this thing is great to keep tucked away in your bag or backpack.
Of course, the PTR will display time even after the majority of its battery is depleted so this thing isn’t absolutely necessary – we just think it is a nice thing to have in case you ignore the PTR’s low battery warnings and find yourself unable to get notifications on your wrist. We also like it for traveling – it’s one less cable to worry about taking up valuable space in your bag.
The product description says that it only works for the Pebble Time Round but we tested it on the regular Pebble Time and it worked just fine! If you think this thing is something you’d like to have on deck just in case – go grab one now!
