I already had one of these (as pictured on this page) and found it very useful. I ordered the product on this page in order to get the larger set of adapters. What I received is apparently the second generation. It is significantly larger: about 3/4" longer and slightly larger in diameter. The new case incorporates a switch mechanism into the battery compartment end cap, so that you can turn it off without removing the battery or disconnecting your phone. It also has a blue-green cap separated from the end of the metal tube by a dark blue band. The old one (the one pictured on this page) had a clear/translucent cap illuminated from within by a blue LED.

I'm not concerned by the larger size; it's still very convenient, and the extra space hopefully houses electronics that improve the charger's performance. The problem is that, despite the tube's increased outer diameter, its inner diameter has shrunk so that rechargeable NiMH batteries will no longer fit in it!!!

To me the exclusion (intentional? Could they really be that stupid?!) of rechargeable batteries is a huge design blunder, which makes the charger much less useful. When I could run it on NiMHs (of which I have many), I used it as a tiny take-anywhere charger. If I can only use disposable batteries in it, then it is merely an emergency charger. Way to ruin a good product, guys!

The little Turbo Charge works great if used correctly. It restores my LG to 50% power in about 45 minutes when the Turbo Charge shuts off. If you try to run your phone off this device it won't work if your phone battery is so low that you are getting the warning beep. What happens is you are running off the Turbo Charge and the phone battery is not being charged so the phone shuts down because it senses a drained battery, the device is not powerful enough to power the phone and charge at the same time. I have used it sucessfully to power the phone when I had one power bar still showing when I plugged it in. The instructions say it is best to turn off the phone when charging. The instructions also say that you can go to the web site for instructions on how to receive a free adapter if the adapters that came with the device don't fit your phone. I only use the Turbo Charge to get me out of a bind when I can't wait for the AC to charge my phone, or I don't want to leave my phone in the car to charge. I shut off the phone, plug in the Turbo Charge and drop it into my pocket or I set it on the table at a restaurant and wait for the blue cap to go out. This little charger has saved me many times. I am ordering the newest one for my Ipod.

After reading all the negative reviews I decided to take a chance and order this product for my new Nokia phone only to find out that it didn't have a cord compatible with my phone. So I contacted the manufacturer and waited for over a month for them to mail me a cord compatible with my phone (not to mention all the emails I had to send them asking for a status on the shipping of the cord). When I finally got it I was excited to try it. When I plugged it in to my phone I could see the battery "charging" BUT: 1. when I unplug it, it never shows that the battery was charged even a bit, regardless of how long it was charging or what type of battery I use 2. every few minutes it stops "charging" and I have to unplug it and plug it back in to "wake" it up. It's a pain! Save your money.

I bought this and the package clearly said it works with Nokia and Blackberry. I got it home and it does NOT work on my blackberry 7250 at all... nothing. When I plug it into my Nokia 2115 the phone says 'not charging' then proceeds to do just that... (not charge). What the package didn't say (but their web site did) was that their are TONS of phones it doesn't work with.

On the positive side it comes with a small light bulb you can plug in that does works. So I guess I bought a $20.00 AA tiny flashlight. Of course, I could have bought a flashlight like that at the dollar store... for a dollar!
UPDATE:
I contacted customer support and they shipped me a 'newer' model 5.6V which thay said would work on the blackberry 7250... well... nuthin', didn't work. On the positive side it does charge my nokia so it's not a total waste... but I never would have bought it if it didn't work on the blackberry!

I have to disagree with the poster who said rechargable batteries don't fit.(But thanks for posting the informative pictures) I have the new model in the picture and my rechargable batteries fit just fine. They are Targus 2200. I love that it comes with so may plugs, makes it truly a mobile useful gadget, several of the plugs fit other gadgets I have. I use this charger when my Razor runs out of juice and I HAVE to make that all important phone call. Carry it in my handbag along with a battery, has helped greatly in tough spots. I am able to talk while my phone is plugged into it but do not get enough juice for a charge at the same time. Its only one AA battery after all.You have to leave it plugged for a while to actually get a charge and don't hope for a fully charged phone, just enough to get you by for a few short calls, it really is only an emergency gadget. Tried it for fun with my big old mp3 player because one of the plugs fit, did not produce enough juice to power it, but then again, the company never said it was meant for mp3. All in all it does what it says and is a handy little gadget to have in your pocket. Plus, I am partial to blue lcd lights...
