The best things in life never last long; and battery life is no exception. As usual, my HTC EVO was dead by 4pm. Lucky for me, THOUGH, the guys and gals at Technocel were right on time in offering me the PowerPak XT travel charger with a built in internal lithium ion battery, which provides four and a half additional hours of talk time.
If your phone charges with a USB port itâ€™s really simple to use, but even if you donâ€™t the PowerPak comes with eight different connectors, and can be used with Apple sync cables (not included). The battery will hold a charge for up to one year. This product won a CES Design and Engineering Showcase Honor for 2010.
A sister product, the Battery Boost (not shown), won the same award this year. The Battery Boost, which doubles as a microSD card reader, will charge your handset, Bluetooth headset, mobile hotspot, mp3 player, and other micro USB devices. It provides up to one hour of additional talk time.
