It works exactly as advertised, tested on both a blackberry Curve and an HTC Inspire. It's small, light, and very well made.

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.

The nice thing about the Tekkeon MP1860A is the adapters you can buy, and they have done a good job providing a selection. They supply a nicely done small AC-USB power adapter, although it was not up to the job of charging an iPad. You can use an iPad AC adapter to charge the Tekkeon, however. Thankfully, they used a standard mini USB socket for power in. With adapters, I also use it to charge a Cradlepoint mobile router and a cell phone. They even had a Nextel adapter, a rarity these days.

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.

Bought my wife a Kodak Zi8 camera for her to use at church, Bible study, conferences, etc. and with a 32gig card, the battery was the limiting factor for recording time (just over an hour). Bought this one on a whim after reading several positive reviews and it works like a charm. We recorded a 3-hr service without a glitch! I just plug it into the camera before we start recording (but leave it turned off) and after 45-60 minutes of recording on the camera's internal battery, turn the external battery on. No stopping, no lag, just continuous recording for Lord only knows how long! It does what it's suppose to and we are quite satisfied with it. She also uses it with her Nintendo DS so it gets a good workout. Recommend this item for anyone needing a mini-UPC for their equipment. Definitely 2 thumbs up!

I brought this charger for my new iPad 2 and to honest. I have not had to use it like I thought I would because of the iPad 2 battery. However, I have tested it out and I am impressed with the battery.

Not long ago I purchased a Kodak Zi8 HD video camera to take with my to a gaming convention. However, the internal battery couldn't record more than an hour before running out. I purchased the Tekkeon and found that I was able to record up to 8 hours without issue. Also, because of it's lightweight and small design, I found it was incredibly easy to transport in the back pocket of my jeans (and survived being sat on and bumped into walls).

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!

I really like this battery. It has little grippy feet on the bottom of it to help it stay where you put it. The capacity lets me charge my iPhone 4s from less than 10% to fully charged and I still have an hour or two of heavy use while connected to this battery before I have to recharge it. It comes with a nice black iPhone 4/4s power cable. The little LED flashlight is a handy addition. It's not really bright but it's nice to help you find your way in a dark room. It will fit in a pocket but it is a bit bulky for that. One very nice thing is that you can charge it using the included USB cable. They even give you a little wall charger. This is one of those few battery's that comes with pretty much any micro USB connecter you will need. As other reviewers have mentioned the power/flashlight button on this unit is too easily turned off and on. Even with this minor quibble I would buy this item again.

Unfortunately my hubby accidently left it at a roadside stop in a bag so I am now buying my second so some of this is going on memory. I carried this everywhere. Travelling with an iphone to multiple countries this is a must-have. It holds charge for ages & charges my iphone 3gs very quickly. I can also use the phone & it continues to charge well. I would have taken a 1/4 star off as the switch on the top can be moved to 'on' when in my bag. Not always tho, but something to look out for. Its small, lightweight, robust, charges up & charges quickly, comes with adaptors for my iphone & my husbands Nokia along with some others I think & charges our little digital camera (mini usb). If I remember right it has a little torch?? (The person who finds this at the roadside stop in Germany could answer that better..)
