This ridiculously handy product allows you to recharge your mobile devices on the move again and again. Simply plug any USB/micro USB powered gadget (including your Apple iPhone 3G/3G S, Apple iPod, BlackBerry, most digital cameras, GPS units and mobile phones) into the USB TurboCharger’s standard USB port and it'll keep even the most power hungry device juiced up and ready to go. An LED display shows the level of charge, and this lightweight and stylish battery is so small that you’ll hardly even notice you’ve got it with you.
Comes with a retractable cable and range of interchangeable connector heads.
Note: if your mobile phone comes with a USB cable (most do nowadays), it'll work with that too.
Note: The Turbocharger does not come with an AC plug.
The turbocharger weighs 225 grams.
Want a smaller battery pack? Check out the USB TurboCharger 1200 (still gives an average mobile phone two charges, but takes up less room in your bag).

This comes with a World Travel Charger and an In-Car Charger aswell so don't go thinking they sent you that by accident! You also get a nice drawstring bag / holster for it and all your adapters. Also in the box are several adapters for all your favourite gadgets:
Sony Ericsson connector
DS Lite connector
Micro USB & Mini USB connector
Travel Charger 3400
Retractable USB to adapter cable.
With this handy little device, you can never have to worry about your MP3 player running out of charge on that 12 hour flight to China!!
The device is really easy to set up so you should be charging your device within seconds. Simply pull out the TurboCharger, and connect the USB end of the cable to it. Then attatch the selected adaptor to the other end of the cable and plug into your device. After that simply press the only button there is to start it charging and you should see a cool-looking 5 blue dots indicating the amount of power there is in the 3400.
Overall, this is a fantastic investment if you are a frequent traveler and gets bored on the journey or someone owning a demanding power supplied gadget!
I do worry, however, that the bag will come undone and I will lose the many connectors that come with the product. No doubt I wouldn't be able to find replacements for them and my investment will become useless. Also annoying is that the lights flash while it's charging...and keep flashing non-stop. I thought it hadn't charged all the way, but as it turns out, you have to press the button to see how far along it is in the process. Seems silly. Similarly, as you're charging your phone, it doesn't tell you when it's getting close to being out of juice until you press the button.
Still, even with these issues, this is a clever product that is very valuable, and I'm not sorry I spent the money at all.
After years of suffering like everyone else, worrying about my phone running out of charge and not having access to a plug socket to charge it back up (I even started turning it off to 'save' battery and just checked it every couple of hours, which kind of defeats the point of it!), one of my friends recommended I get a Turbocharger.
Initially the thought of lugging around another battery didn't exactly fill me with joy, but I couldn't see another alternative so I got one. Well, I was converted instantly when it arrived, it was small and lightweight (not what i'd expected at all) and came with a handy cloth bag to protect it and keep all the attachments in.
I then realised I could also use it not only to charge things, but to run items directly like my portable speakers.
All in all this is a great little product, light and stylish, plenty of charge (3-4 full charges of my N97, or about 12 hours running my speakers) and surprisingly rugged (i've dropped it twice from standing height and it still works no problem).
