4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite perfect..., 5 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Veho VCC-A008-PBP-XT Pebble Portable 5000mAH Battery Pack Charger for iPad/iPhone/iPod/Smartphones/PSP/NDS/NDSi/GPS (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I bought this before a trip abroad and it came in very useful.

The battery itself has a nice 'rubberised' finish and this "XT" version comes with extra tips and a cover for the battery itself. It's a pretty nice neoprene-type, elasticated "sock" and has a small, separate pocket for tips.

However, a couple of gripes...

The slip-cover can only carry 1 or 2 of the 'tips' so if you need to have several with you at a time, you'll need to figure out another way of storing them. Also, the iPhone/iPod adapter tip won't charge an iPhone 4...the phone recognises that it's connected to a power source but won't charge. Connect another iPhone cable to the Pebble and it'll charge an iPhone 4 perfectly...other people have mentioned this so it sounds like an incompatibility with the tip. Finally, the Pebble doesn't include anything to actually charge itself; it charges via a DC usb connector but I think it's a bit cheeky not to include one in the box...make sure you have a mains-to-USB charger before you buy this.

Overall, I'm very pleased and it even charges my Archos 70 Internet Tablet.
