Chapter in this post:
A package from Equinux arrived today that contained a small adapter cable with the cute name "tizi tank trunk" stuck. In detail, this is a charging cable with a USB connection, which has a plug on the other side that fits Braun electric shavers and epilators. This means that these devices can be charged with any USB power supply unit and any power bank.
The charging cable is compatible with the following devices:
I still have to smile about the tizi product names: rascal, lateral thinker, petrol station, petrol station and tank trunk. It's easier to remember than "MF-833G charging cable", isn't it? In any case, I will not forget the fuel pipe - not even if I go on vacation soon. So far, for reasons of space, I've always taken a wet razor with me because I was too lazy to fumble off the original Braun power pack from the station and pack it up. My wife already laughs enough when I tie up my bag with all the power supplies, distribution sockets and cables. ;-)
From now on I pack the tizi tank trunk in my toiletry bag and can use it to use my razor (I have the Braun Series 9 - a recommended device) to a USB power supply that I always have in my luggage anyway - namely the tizi filling stationwhich not only offers 3 USB-A ports, but also a USB-C port with 60 W power (test report will follow soon!).
With the adapter cable, you can now charge your Braun shaver via power banks. To see how much charging current is required from the power bank, I have a USB multimeter between the power bank (here the Zendura A2) and tizi tank trunk (and razor) inserted. The measured values are approx. 5 volts and 0,2 amps, which corresponds to 1,0 watts of power. Every power bank should be able to cope with this for a few hours to charge the shaver. I assume the battery in the razor is smaller than that in most smartphones.
For me it is Adapter cable "tizi tank nozzle" a recommendation - provided, of course, you have one of the compatible razors or epilators from Braun. You don't really have to say much about the processing of tizi products: the cable is solidly built, the spiral winding is practical when you want to stow it away and the plugs sit firmly in the sockets. I'm not worried about the shelf life either, since Equinux has a good reputation to lose with its brand "tizi" - there is certainly no slouch here, as with some Chinese stalls.
I admit that some of my articles may sound very exuberant. In fact, that always happens when products really convince me. And that's exactly how I feel with the tizi tank nozzle. I received the fuel nozzle free of charge, but otherwise received no money from Equinux. The idea and implementation of the fuel pipe are simply successful and I wanted to introduce it here to give it a good start.
And about the many positive words about the "tizi" brand: In fact, most of the tizi products that I use at home have actually been bought myself because I find the quality of the manufacturer convincing.
