5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Iphone Charger I've ever owned!!!, August 21, 2010
This review is from: New Trent IMP99D/NT99D iGeek - 11200mAh External Battery Charger for Smartphones and Tablets USB (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I have purchased many items for my Iphones in the past, but never felt compelled to write a review until now.
I recently purchased the New Trent IMP880 8900mAh External battery pack to go with my new Iphone 4. I am a mobile professional who uses my Iphone 4 for my business needs and can't afford for my phone's battery to not be at full charge. As any Iphone 4 user will tell you, the battery on this new Iphone is terrible. The first place I went to look for a charger is New Trent. Why?? I have purchased several external chargers from them in the past and their products AND service have ALWAYS met my needs.

Now on to specifics of the device. It looks like an external hard drive, but it looks sleek and and has a rubber feel to it that makes for the perfect tactile sensation. I never feel like I am going to drop it. The ports are clearly marked and the on/off button is big and easy to press. When you connect your device and turn on the IMP880, a cool blue led light lights up markers on the side to show you how much charge the IMP880 has left. It looks like something out of a futuristic movie and has a Wow factor when people see it. I had 3 people at the doctor's office ask me what it was and even the non-tech people were impressed!

From a functional standpoint, the IMP880 is an impressive beast - in that it provides up to 500% of the Iphone's battery life. I have already fully charged my Iphone 4 three times without needing to charge the IMP880 yet.
I can't stress how convenient that is - not needing a computer or wall outlet to charge up my phone.

The IMP880 comes with several different attachments and an impressive cord specifically for the Iphone 4. The last charger I had, the cord would frequently come loose, but this one is a solid fit with perfect length.
When I went to Disney last year, I used a New Trent charger for my Iphone 3G and words can't express how convenient that was. These things are small and easily fit in your pocket or backpack etc..

Here's the rest of what came in the IMP880 box:

Imp880 external battery pack
A Regular USB cable for charging cell phone device
iPhone adapter for 4G 3Gs 3G iPhone, 3G iPad and iTouch
MiniUSB adapter for Blackberry, Tour, Curve and Bold
MicroUSB adapter for Blackberry, Storm
UL certified AC Wall Outlet plug with voltage range 100V-240V suitable for worldwide travelers
English user manual

Last but not least is the manufacturer's service. I could do an entire review on New Trent, but I will give you the highlights. Before I purchased the IMP880, I emailed the company some questions. Not only did I get an immediate response back (10 minutes), but I believe the owner himself responded. Mr. Huong is his name and he was more than happy to answer my questions in a clear and enthusiastic manner. I rarely see this in today's business world. Secondly, my dog chewed up my ac wall outlet plug to charge the IMP880 and I didn't know what to do. I contacted New Trent and Mr. Huong quickly responded to my email(minutes again)and arranged for me to get a replacement. That folks, is service and how business should be.

In conclusion, if you are in need of an external charger for you mobile device, these products by New Trent are second to none. Great build quality, functionality and customer service that is truly customer friendly and
focused.

Hello! Great review. I just bought this one. Could I ask you if it is possible to use the iPhone *while* the IMP880 is charging it?

Thanks!
Dawid

This review is for a different product, the IMP880. Nothing wrong with the review, but it's not relevant here.
