You may have read recently about comparing of battery sizes, capacities and the like when I was looking for a rechargeable battery pack for my phone, I took the advice of @ZuuMediaSwindon and bought the PINES Rechargeable Backup Battery Pack
I’ve now had a chance to use it in anger and at least five people have asked what it is and where I got it from, so here it is!
It comes with an array of manuals and handy, carry case (about the size of an old style Nintendo DS):
Opening it up, for charging the battery you have:
- A mains charger
- A car charger
- A USB charger
And charging “tips” for such a variety of things I can’t even imagine what some of them are for!
And finally here it is charging my Motorola Milestone/DROID (which I get a days charge out of at the most!)
So, it’s had quite a few outings now and it’s been great for a top up charge whenever I’ve needed one (I just carry the USB tip that fits both of our phones and the iPod tip). It did drain itself quite heavily overnight the other night as I left it plugged into my phone. I’m not sure that my phone wasn’t charging, running down a little bit on the data network and then charging again throughout the night though!
All that said it’s a fantastic purchase for anyone who has a couple of USB devices, it’s Â£34.90 on Amazon at the moment:
