My portable charging unit arrived today from Clove Technology. With my impending Rising Sun weekend I knew that my HTC Touch battery really wouldn’t cut the mustard. It tends to last a couple of days if it’s barely used.. However, no doubt it will get some heavy webemail and camera usage over the weekend. So I knew I had to call for backup!!
I accessed the market, and the Power Monkey’s where suggested by many of my friends. However I didn’t want to relie on sunlight, with this being the UK and also having to leave my phone in sight of the sun, and other unwanted attention didn’t really float my boat..
So here it is, it’s basically a 3400 mAH battery packed into a Compact, slim and lightweight body (measures just 100 x 62 x 15mm or 3.9 x 2.4 x 0.6 inches and weighs 120g or 4.2 oz). It ships with a 12v adapter so you can charge it in your car. It also comes with a range of adapters to fit most devices.. Two ports on the body of device, one normal usb for plugging into your device, and one mini usb for charging for a wide range of sources, including PCLaptop etc.
I have not yet had the chance to charge my phone from it, as I am currently charging the device from my laptop, but judging by the spec’s and reviews on other sites it should be perfect for the job! Check back on Monday for a completed review of how I got on with it.
