Superb value for money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Veho VCC-A007-PBP Pebble 5000mAH Portable Battery Pack Charger for iPod, iPhone, Mobile Phones (Electronics)
I ordered this after trying many other portable charging devices to charge my iphone 3GS. These included the nexxus powerboost pro and nexxus powerpack pro. Both of these worked the earlier not even managing a full charge and the latter breaking after only a few months use and only managing 1 full charge at a time.
The pebble is way better - it fully recharged my iphone from just under half capacity 6 times!! and can easily do 2-3 full charges. The build quality appears good -more solid than other ones I've owned. Maybe a touch on the large size but I can put up with that for the performance you get. You do after all get 5000mAh capacity. The neoprene cover is very nice.
One thing I particularly liked is the iphone charge tip actually works and you can use the extendable cable. So many other charging devices require you to use the iphone cable which is just more to carry around. After emailing Veho technical support I can confirm that the pebble can be charged using a standard USB charger plug such as that supplied with the iphone, which I find much easier than charging from a PC USB port.
The device also charges my wifes HTC desire with no problems, which means I have to now share it with her!! You can get other 5000mAh chargers from the apple store but they are usually £50+. The pebble is definately value for money!
