USB Emergency Power Backup – Rechargeable USB Emergency Power Backup Pack 2400mAh Reviews

posted by TheGMan on 01/13/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Works Great Inexpensive for its capacity
Cons:
The accompanying USB cable does NOT fit inside the battery pack to charge it (the same one pictured). You MUST use the slide-out USB input connector to charge it but it may not fit in certain USB hubs or a computer's USB ports considering if there is insufficient space or objects such as a sliding door, etc., cover the USB port.
Other:
The cable that comes with other products, such as SKU 5941 (Wii Rechargeable battery pack with USB Cable) is the cable needed to charge this pack, NOT the one included. Only outputs ~450mA so it may not charge a phone. Another item on DX, a 2000mAh battery pack (non-USB - must be plugged in an electrical outlet) can output 500mAh and was able to charge my Blackberry 7290.
Bottomline:
Still worth it in the end.
