  1. Come on Kristopher, there’s better, higher capacity, lower price options than this one. In fact I just picked up an I/O Magic 4400mAh pack at staples for $30. I would have ordered one of the bigger ones from Amazon, but needed it for tomorrow.

    • I know there are bigger and better and less expensive.. I’ve got 10,000mAh one myself and below, several of them in fact varying in sizes and prices and quality. I’ve reviewed a few here on Mobility Digest in fact.

      I just post about new mobile related products I come across, I’m not telling you to go buy them… I’m not recommending them, I don’t even know if it works as I’ve not gotten my hands on one yet.. Then again i can say that about any product at all.

      Just because the battery capacity is smaller doesn’t mean people don’t have a use for it. I’ve got one this size, and I believe the same capacity, tucked away with my iPod Touch so when the kids use it they can charge the battery. It works great and I don’t need anything bigger than that for that situation.

      Bigger isn’t always better.. my 10,000mAh battery is huge, about the size and weight of a 3.5″ hard drive and I wouldn’t want to carry that with me everywhere if I didn’t have to. Sometimes smaller is better, it just depends on the job it needs to do…
