These days it’s difficult to live without your mobile phone especially if you rely on a smartphone to get work done like sending e-mails. The biggest problem I have with smartphones that are 3G enabled is the battery life. You can barely make it through the day checking e-mails, making calls, and sending SMS. That’s why I think it’s important for people who use smartphones a lot to carry mobile chargers or external battery packs. The MiPow Power Tube Universal Charger (2200 mAh) is a great multi-phone on-the-go charging solution.
In a nutshell the MiPower Power Tube is a mobile battery that can charge different kinds of phones. You charge the Power Tube first via USB and then you can use the stored energy later on to power up your gadgets. The Power Tube is versatile with different connectors for Samsung, Sony Ericsson, BlackBerry, Nokia, Apple, and a host of other devices.
You charge up the Power Tube, get the relevant connectors, store them in the pouch, and off you go. It’s pretty sweet if you ask me.
We tried the MiPower Power Tube on different phones we have here in the house and it worked wonderfully with the iPhone 4, Nokie E5, and the BlackBerry Bold 9780. We’ll try it later this afternoon on the Samsung Galaxy S2 as well. Here are some photos:
I tried the MiPower Power Tube on the iPhone 4 with 20% remaining battery. It went all the way up to 100% and it still has juice in it. This can probably give your iPhone a “second life” and a little extra. If you’re like me that moves around Metro Manila a lot and relies heavily on the smartphones for internet, SMS, and calls, you have to invest in mobile chargers. The Power Tube is definitely something you can consider.
