What is better than going to the mail box and getting a new gadget? It’s like Christmas and your Birthday all at once! Well today I received my first iPhone 3G gadget – The iPhone Power Station. Purchased from mobile.brando.com.hk for the low, low price of $25 add $3 more for shipping and Bob’s your Uncle (English phrase, not sure what it means)
So fresh out of the pack it comes charged and ready to rock, so I plugged it in and it did what it said, started charging my iPhone 3G. (see Spielbergesque type video)
It comes in black or white, though the website is stating: *BLACK is out of stock and shipment will be sent in Mid of August!*
It also reads:
External emergency backup power battery for your iPhone 2G/3G and iPod
The first round – I plugged in my iPhone and it did start charging and charging and charging…it didn’t seem to stop even though the iPhone looked fully charged and the display of the charging icon was sans(french for not there) the lightning bolt.
Currently I am testing it out on my 60GB video iPod and it is charging it up as well.
A more detailed review will be coming soon as I test and play around with this “External emergency backup power battery”.
