Lots of Juice, but 3GS caution,
This review is from: I-Up 5400 External Battery for Select Cell Phones (Wireless Phone Accessory)
First thing to know about this product is that it is exactly the same as the Major Mojo 3GJuice (two company names, same piece of hardware) - except that it costs about $20 less - cool! Second it has 5400 MaH which means it will go much longer than other charges before it needs to be refilled.
I bought this to recharge my iPhone 3GS. It works but there is a trick to it. You must power the batter charger on first, THEN attach it to your iPhone. If you attach it to your iPhone then power on the charger you will get a message "Charging is not supported by this accessory." As long as you know to do things in this order (not very clearly explained in the documentation that comes with it) it works great.

Thank you so much for this information. The people who wrote the brochure did a very poor job with explaining anything. They clearly have no interest in the English speaking world.

If it works great why only three stars?

I agree. I've never had an issue with an iphone, blackberry, or Android, from it. If that's the trick it took for your apple OS (no offense, as I had no issues on the 3GS) to make it work, it's probably more of an issue with Apple, than with the product here. I've seen ipods and iphones complain about USB cables in general, as well as the source. Maybe Apple will finally realize they aren't special when it comes to Li-On's, and make their products work like the rest of the world already does (granted, Apple probably thinks they invented the lithium ion battery too...).
