I looked at a few much more expensive power packs before I took a chance on this one. It works well with my Blackberry Plabook. which was the main reason for purchase.
It does exactly what I want and at about £30 I can't think of a reason to buy anything more expensive.
The build quality seems very good. Charge indicator seems accurate.
This is a high capacity device. It is compact for what it is, but not a pocket item, and a little heavy for a handbag. If you need to occasionally charge a mobile phone or mp3 player, do consider a smaller capacity and lighter unit. That said, my Son saw this and immediately had to have one to keep his ipod and phone running on his travels as he may be away from mains power for a while.
Another bonus for those using high current devices is that this pack seems to trickle charge on chargers that will not power these directly. The Playbook in particular is pretty fussy about its charger, but this battery will charge slowly from an ordinary phone charger and then charge the Playbook.
It doesn't come with its own charger and there are plenty of different types out there. If you use a cheap one, it will probably take much longer to charge.
