Powerbank Battery Pack Voice Recorder
This fully functional Powerbank Battery Pack will recharge USB external devices in a normal manner. It is also one of the longest digital surveillance voice recorders, switchable between 14 days of continuous and 150 days of voice-activated recording. The Powerbank has a superb 25-foot microphone range and is a solid-quality product that is very easy to use. Three brand-new features include time and date-stamped recordings, adjustable sound quality and super voice activation (SVOS) level setting. The Powerbank represents excellent value for such a cracking product.
Powerbank Battery Pack; with 14 Continuous Days and 150 Days of Voice Activation Recording
This product is an absolute belter of a digital voice recorder; with its great surveillance design, exceptional build quality, and MASSIVE standby and recording times - it is sure to impress our most demanding clients. By appearance and functionality, the Battery Pack gives the illusion of a standard working Powerbank; however, audio recording can be enabled under natural movement. If you already use a Powerbank product, this device will blend perfectly with your accessories. Powerbanks are becoming vital for many people; therefore, this device can be introduced into the environment without drawing concern from the most observant person/s.
EXCEPTIONAL BATTERY PERFORMANCE
The Powerbank has an internal fully rechargeable 3'000 mAh battery capable of recording continuously for 14 days or 150 days in voice activation mode. This is an exceptional battery performance, even for the professional user. With 16 GB of storage capacity, the Powerbank can hold 288 hours of XHQ (extra high quality) or 576 hours of HQ (high quality) audio recordings.
A built-in AGC (automatic gain control) adjusts the sound level to accommodate close-up recording and distance recording without causing audio distortion, and in our tests with a software program called 'Boom 2' installed from the Apple Store further enhanced the audio clarity, picking up audio some 30 feet away from where the Powerbank had been placed.
For convenient deployment, the Powerbank has a removable magnet which sits flush on the underside of the device so it can be attached to metal areas if required.
VOICE ACTIVATION AND CONTINUOUS RECORDING
Under natural body movement of rotating a switch on the device, you can choose between two recording modes:
- Voice Activated Recording - place the Powerbank within a room or vehicle environment; recordings will trigger only when sound is detected for up to 150 days!
- Continuous Recording - ideal if you do not want any breaks in the recorded files. Place the Powerbank in the area of concern and record for 14 days non-stop. Audio files will be split into 5-hour lengths.
The Powerbank Battery Pack can withstand close visual examination, and for peace of mind, there are no LEDs, beeps, or sounds during recording.
SOUND AND SVOS LEVEL SETTINGS
These new features allow you to adjust the audio quality between XHQ (extra high quality) and HQ (high quality) and the microphone sensitivity. The lower setting (HQ) will draw less power consumption when recording and is best suited for smaller, confined areas like vehicles. The higher XHQ setting is best suited for room environments.
TIME AND DATE STAMP
The supplied software is a very easy-to-use program that allows you to sync the time and date from your computer to the Powerbank. Referencing audio files with a time and date can help resolve disputes by providing an accurate timeframe or just for memory recap when playing audio files.]
Note: The Powerbank is compatible with Mac computers for recharging the device and playing audio files. Mac computers cannot use the supplied Windows software to set the time, date, and SVOS level adjustments.
POWERFUL AUDIO MICROPHONE
The Powerbank has a very sensitive microphone and captures audio in high-quality MP3 format @ 64 KBPS to provide a clear audio recording sound.
BATTERY LEVEL INDICATOR
While charging the device, a battery level indicator will illuminate, showing the remaining time to a sufficient full charge. A small button can enable the same battery level indicator to show the remaining battery level; for example, if you have stored the device away for several weeks and then wish to use it, the battery level may indicate a recharge is not required.
MASS STORAGE DEVICE
The Powerbank can be operated as a Mass Storage Device to drop pictures, documents, spreadsheets etc, into the device's internal memory for safekeeping. Please note that the number of documents and other media stored in the device's memory will reduce the total number of audio files (9999).
Note: A USB mains plug (not supplied) will be required to recharge the Powerbank from a mains power supply, or you may optionally purchase a genuine Apple USB mains plug from the menu above. This product does not require a USB mains plug, although charging times will take substantially longer through a computer.
DOES THE POWERBANK LOOK NORMAL WITHOUT GIVING AWAY THE VOICE RECORDING ASPECT?
Yes. The Powerbank looks and functions to charge external devices in a normal manner.
HOW EASY IS IT TO COMMENCE VOICE RECORDING?
Super easy - and no technical skill is required. One end of the Powerbank has a little recording switch to enable continuous or voice-activated recording (depending on the switch's direction).
HOW LONG CAN THE POWERBANK RECORD FOR?
A fully charged Powerbank can record continuously for 336 hours (14 days), or the Powerbank can remain powered in voice activation for 3'600 hours (150 days). This is a HUGE amount of battery performance.
WHAT IF I CONNECT THE POWERBANK TO MY COMPUTER AND RECORD?
If you connect the Powerbank to a computer and then activate recording, the Powerbank obtains its power through the computer for the full duration of its 16 GB storage capacity. This means a total recording time (continuous or voice-activated) of 576 hours in HQ (high quality) is achievable.
CAN THE POWERBANK PROVIDE A TIME/DATE STAMP FOR EACH RECORDING?
Yes. The Powerbank supports a time and date function, so you will know exactly when events occurred. The supplied software for Windows computers allows the Powerbank to sync the correct time and date.
ARE THERE ADDITIONAL AUDIO SETTINGS THAT I CAN ADJUST?
Yes. The supplied software for Windows computers has a simple interface with selectable options allowing you to sync the time and date and tweak the microphone's sensitivity and SVOS level setting.
HOW GOOD IS THE QUALITY OF THE AUDIO RECORDING?
Exceptionally clear and easily one the longest and best audio recorders on the market today. The Powerbank is an exceptional piece of quality manufacturing.
WHAT AUDIO FORMAT ARE THE FILES CREATED IN?
Recordings are stored in MP3 format @ 64 KBPS, which is outstanding clarity and supported by many audio players.
VOICE ACTIVATION AND MANUAL RECORDING - WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
If you need to capture audio 'on the fly' or record for long periods without any break in recording (14 days), then rotate the recording switch to continuous mode. If you must capture audio when absent from a room or vehicle or over an extremely long time (150 days), rotate the recording switch to voice activation mode.
WILL THERE BE ANY AUDIBLE BEEPS OR VISIBLE LEDS DURING RECORDING?
There are no signs during recording; however, it should be noted a very suble status LED will briefly flash on the Powerbank for each triggered voice activation recording; therefore, if this is a concern, you may wish to apply a small piece of tape over the indicator.
ARE THE AUDIO FILES PASSWORD-PROTECTED?
No. Although it is highly unlikely anybody would want to connect the Powerbank to a computer.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE THE POWERBANK TO HOLD FILES AND DOCUMENTS AS A MASS STORAGE DEVICE?
Yes. It's a portable Powerbank, a digital voice recorder, and mass storage to drag and drop files and folders into the Powerbanks's memory for safekeeping.
HOW DO I ACCESS AND PLAYBACK THE VOICE RECORDINGS?
Connect the Powerbank to a Windows or Mac computer via the supplied USB cable to access the 'Record' folder containing the recorded files. No special software is required to play the audio files.
