For the price, this external battery is one of the best out there, it does the job, it recharged by sister's VM kyocera (the one that looks like a crappy blackberry) to 100% in ~1:30 hours and it still had a little bit of juice to charge ~10% my epic 4g. Before that, it only charged my epic 4g around 50%. Please note that my epic's battery is a 1500mAh and according to back of the external battery it contains a 1200mAh battery, so I was thinking that it was supposed to charge at least to 75% or so, but whatever. What I really like about this external battery is that includes and you can hide the usb cables to charge the phone and the battery, so you dont have to be carrying extra cables.

Conclusion, if you have a non-smartphone, this battery will work great for you!! if you have a more power hungry smarthphone, you might want to get a 2000+ mAh external battery instead.

Bought a pair for my wife and I to use when we are out and about (we travel often). These worked perfectly with our Thunderbolts. Recharged from 20% to 100%. Small and compact. Nice.

4 stars because the usb cable to charge is so short. It is really awkward to plug the usb in. Other than that, this is a lifesaver at an excellent price. I have an extended battery for my HTC incredible, but sometimes I do not have access to a "plug in charger." This charges my phone completely and you are still able to talk/text/surf the net while it is charging.

This product works as advertised. If you're a road warrior and aren't always close to a plug-in or your car charger, this little baby can recharge your smartphone tout suite!

Someone wrote that it charged the T.B. from 20 to 100%? I don't know it charges mine from 20 to 50% then starts to drain the battery like its charging itself from the phone, go figure. It is small thin and light, but hasn't charged my phone to more than 58%. I'll use it on my next trip in case of emergency, just give me a little bit more talk time.

Works as advertised. Unfortunately, Android (moreso Froyo and older) has terrible battery life, and we're lucky to make it through 1 day with infrequent use. This gets me through 18 or so hours (instead of the usual 12). It only charges the battery ~50% before the charging stops. The indicator light is useful, but not very accurate.

The Kensington Pocket Battery for Smartphones is a little battery pack that you can use to charge up your smartphone while on the go. Modern smartphones, with their larger screens and 4G connections, suck up battery life like there's no tomorrow. Until battery technology catches up with the power demands of portable devices, I see battery packs like the Kensington Pocket Battery being very popular.

PROS:

- Very slim and compact
- Supports most smartphones
- Easy to use

CONS:

- Could use a little more power

When I recently went on a week-long business trip, I knew that my HTC Incredible 2 Android smartphone would not last me all day. I ended up carrying my charger around with me, to top off wherever and whenever I could. It was hugely inconvenient for me to ration the use of my phone throughout the day. If I'd had a better charging solution, it would've greatly reduced my stress.

The Kensington Pocket Battery is a very simple gadget accessory. It weighs less than 2 ounces, is about 3.5-inches long, less than 2.5-inches wide, and is only 0.39-inches thick. The bottom of the unit contains a short USB cable for charging the battery itself.

On one side of the Pocket Battery is a short micro-USB cable and on the other side is a short mini-USB cable. Between the two connectors, you'll be able to charge a wide variety of non-Apple smartphones.

The top of the Pocket Battery has green and red lights and a battery status button. A green light means that the Pocket Battery has over 30% life remaining while a red light means it has less than 30% life remaining.

Not a whole lot of capacity, but priced right. Don't think that you can go hiking for a week away from power and this will keep your blackberry charged. I stream pandora at work aprox 10 hrs a day and this makes sure that there is enough juice to call the wife on my way home. Size is pretty small, works well for what I use it for. Would be a great gift for a gadget nerd :)
