I’ve been hanging out with a Proporta Universal Charger for a while now, and it’s pretty cool. The thing comes in a slimline pocket happy size, and contains a 3400 mAh rechargeable battery, which you charge up via the USB port on your computer. Once full, it will keep your mobile phone and other handheld devices going for a good while. The company claims you’ll be able to recharge your device between 3 and 5 times, which is pretty impressive if true. It certainly lasts a long time in normal use.
I used it to keep my cell phone going over a recent overseas trip and it was perfect, and I didn’t need to lug around charging cables, international socket adapters or anything else. The kit comes with adapters for all the most popular phones and devices. Recommended. £24.95.
Plug any USB powered mobile device (phone, iPod, digital camera etc.) into the battery’s standard USB port and recharge anywhere. Even power hungry devices will recharge and last for up to three times longer when connected to the Mobile Device Charger (USB Rechargeable Battery) and you can recharge your mobile, Smartphone or PDA anywhere. Use as an emergency charger which can be recharged from any convenient USB port and never run out of power again.
