A dual port power pack with two USB outputs, the Tekkeon TekCharge MP1860A simultaneously charges and powers your iPad, iPhone, iPod nano or iPod touch, and a second small portable device. With mobile power at your fingertips, this high-capacity, lightweight battery lets you enjoy hours of extended play time on many of your small portable electronic products.
Several Charging Options
TekCharge connects to your device in three ways: to your iPad, iPhone, iPod nano or iPod touch using the included Dock Connector/USB cable, or to any compatible device using your own USB device cable or an adapter tip.
An Apple Dock Connector to USB cable is included for connection of your iPad, iPhone, or iPod, with Mini USB and Micro USB adapter tips included for connection to current models of BlackBerry, HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson mobile phones. You can use the included USB adapter tips to charge your Kindle2, Nook, MP3 players, PDAs, portable media players and other 5V devices that use a Micro or Mini USB cable to charge. Additional adapter tips are available from Tekkeon for a nominal fee.
Its intelligent design enables the TekCharge to identify and provide exactly the right output power for the connected device, from less than 100 mA to a whopping 2.1 A.
High-Capacity Rechargeable Battery
The TekCharge features a rechargeable 4400 mAh lithium-ion battery. Designed the highest degree of safety in mind, it features multi-layer protection circuitry to help prevent over-charging, over-discharging, over-current, or short circuit, and flame-retardant plastics that exceed industry requirements.
Battery Capacity at a Glance
A bright LED on top of the battery quickly indicates the remaining capacity of the rechargeable battery.
As an added bonus, the TekCharge includes a flashlight so you have emergency light at your fingertips.

The HTC Inspire is a great phone but a battery hog, and this external battery will be a lifesaver.
One note: If you use the cable that comes with your phone, the phone will assume it's plugged into a computer USB port and charge slower. You must either use the cable that came with the Tekkeon, or some other cable with the data pins shorted toward the device to get the maximum charge rate.
A couple of negative design issues. The switch on top can easily be hit by accident. If in your briefcase, this could turn on the light and deplete your battery. Should have had a guard, been recessed or just do away with the light. Also, one of the tip adapters was a tight fit on the respective cable; a little bit of work with an X-acto was required to remove some flashing on one of them.
For the same convention, I also had an Samsung Infuse 4G phone that I recently purchased that I planned to use for live streaming some events to the website I work with. However, it used up a ton of the android's battery power. I was able to plug my phone into the battery but did find that running two high juicing electronics on it was kinda tough on it. I purchased a second battery shortly before leaving for the convention and was fine.
Basically - good size, good weight, easy to recharge overnight, good battery life, easy to use. I was very happy with the two batteries I purchased. Thanks!
