****This review is mainly for those who has iPhone 3G or similar gadgets that have a battery capacity of 1,200mAh or more. If you have a device with less, this review may still be suitable for you but you can also consider other external battery chargers.****

I did tons of research trying to find the best external battery charger for my new iPhone 3G. I got say this, I love the Macally JBox. Seriously! I believe it is the best external battery charger on the market right now for it's size, weight, design, output, capacity and ability to check battery status.

I'm a power user because I spend most of my day browsing safari, listening to music and watching movies but 75~85% of the time making phone calls. Since voice call drains the most amount of juice, extra battery(ies) is a must for a business person like me. I had a Samsung Blackjack i607 before the iPhone 3G and I had 4 extra batteries in order to keep the phone running by the end of the day. Now the battery in the iPhone cannot be replaced easily so that's where external battery charger comes in handy.

Now which battery should I buy? I was wondering. Definitely not big or heavy ones that might give me a burden. I need something small and light so I can carry it in my pocket and charge my iPhone 3G at the same time on the go. Anything 2.5"x4"x0.6" and 10 oz or less would be perfect. How about let's try eBay since most stuff are cheap? *BUZZ* That's a big NO NO!! Most of eBay external battery chargers that have 9,600~20,000mAh are fake due to their small size and light weight. I did a little research by contacting at least 25+ people who purchased those products on eBay and most of their answers are the same. Those batteries are fake and have at most 1,200mAh. Cheap quality for cheap product.

This is a great product. I used it on my trip to Germany with my kids and our new iPod touch. They were using it for a lot of video and I used it for web browsing in wi fi hotspots along the way. Unlike some of the less expensive options this actually charges your device. I did recharge the backup battery when I could, but I think I could have gone all week just using this to recharge. It has 3 lights that tell you the status of the battery life just by pushing a button which is really nice. It comes with a cord to plug into a USB port or USB wall charger to recharge the battery, even a simple case to hold the battery and cord. Very light and does not get hot when you use it. Simple to use, but powerful where it counts, battery life. Well worth it.

I bought this to use with my iPod touch. And it works great. It completely recharges the Touch from a single charge. I can charge the device by using the standard USB brick from Apple or the USB port of my computer. I just took a long flight - 6 hours of flight time plus two hours between flights. I watched a two hour plus movie and two TV shows in addition to an hour or so of music and an hour or so of Internet browsing. Plugged into the charger when the touch got to 20% warning. Now it's fully charged again. Never had to fumble with the power cords or computer. Its small too, not much bigger than the Touch itself. Definately worth it and no batteries to throw away like those other chargers. Now we just need to see how long it lasts.

Love it! So nice to throw it in my brief case before a trip and not have to worry about how long my iPhone or iPod Nano is going to last. Easy to use, nice construction....I wouldn't hesitate to suggest it to others.

I bought this to have on hand in case my iPhone battery ran out while I was traveling. It works perfectly with iPhones as well as with iPods. I was even able to continue taking pictures using the battery. I plugged it in as soon as my iPhone warned me that the battery was in the "very low" range and it switched to the battery without a problem. The battery also has an "on/off" switch so you can avoid draining the battery when not in use. Also has a USB cord for charging and a small carry pouch. I just leave it in my purse now for those times when I run out of time . . .

It is a nice external power unit but I had bought it for my Ipod Touch 3rd generation--unfortunately it is incompatible with it. Works fine with my normal Ipod for which I do not need it.

This unit holds a charge for quite a long time and it gives a solid charge to my iTouch. I can now view a 2 hour movie and still enjoy a host of tunes on a four hour flight!
