Enercell Portable Power

Enercell Portable Power.jpg
I've just purchased (from my local Radio Shack) the device shown above.
It's an Enercell Portable Power Bank.  The idea is beautiful in its simplicity.  Just plug it into a USB port and the battery charges.
When it is fully charged, which is indicated by LED lights, the battery stores power that can be used by other devices in an emergency.
The device comes with a variety of connectors that let it provide power to devcies that have an Apple connector (powering everything except the devices requiring the *new* Apple connector), mini-USB, and micro USB.
Here are all the details from the Radio Shack website:

Make a withdrawal when you need it.

You keep money in the bank - now keep power in the bank too. Enercell's Portable Power Bank is a small, personal-portable power supply that keeps you talking for up to four hours. It charges quickly from any USB power port.

  • Output voltage 5.0 +/- 0.25V, output current 1000mA (max), with a capacity of 1350mAh
  • Battery average run time up to 4 hours, results vary by device and usage patterns
  • Over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit, over-temperature (charging) & under-voltage protection
  • Battery charges in about 3 hours
