iPhone 5

portable battery power

These days, many devices use the the USB cable for power charging, including the popular iPod, iPhone, iPad (with connectors). While queuing 15 hours outside Apple Store for iPad 2 on its Australian launch date, I noticed that a number of people were charging their iPhone, iPad in the afternoon. Obviously, many of them queued longer than me, and it gets bored there, so getting the iPod, iPhone out was nothing special.

Of course, you can bring your i-devices to the Apple Store, and they will happily charge them for you, but that's besides the point of this entry. Since we had quite a few hours there, we chatted, and one of the topics was the portable power supply.

i.Sound Portable Power Max

During the queue, I met David Rawsthorne from LithgowLights.com who does beautiful Christmas lighting in Lithgow, he works in an electrical company. He had a USB portable power charger for his iPad (1). It is standard AA battery based, not brilliant, but it works for situation like the queuing outside of Apple Store.

i.Sound Portable Power Max

Initially, I was sold for ZAGGsparq 2.0, which has 6,000 mAh power, one of the highest power I've seen as most others are ranging from 3,000 mAh to 4,000 mAh. A few days later, I did my online homework and found something that has even more power, i.Sound Portable Power Max - 16000 mAh. I recommend David, and like me, he ordered one immediately. He then quickly gave me some test results (since he knows much more than I do), and by the sound of it, he's pretty happy with the portable power charger.

Don's 5.2 kg batteryNow, this 16,000 mAh battery weights 403 gram. Nowhere matching Don's self-made external laptop power supply which provides a massive 180 watt-hours at a cost of weighing a massive 5.2 kg. Well, I still find 403 g a bit too heavy for me, but well, it can charge iPhone 4 (from complete flat to full) 11 times, ad a handy LED torch (flashlight) built-in. I think I shall be happy with it.

Considering a portable USB power supply? I recommend i.Sound Portable Power Max - 16000 mAh.
