Default ChargeBlock, A Portable Charging Option For Several Devices

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.macnews.com/2011/05/25/chargeblock-must-have-ipad-tool-when-youre-road' target='_blank'>http://www.macnews.com/2011/05/25/c...when-youre-road</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"When you want true power, power to dominate your iDevices, look no further than the Miccus ChargeBlock for iPad. Not only will it charge your iPad (1 or 2) or iPhone but practically any USB devices and does so with a size and dimension not much different than previous generations of iPhones. This is simply a must-have device for power on the road."</em></p><p><img height="260" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1306326815.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 150px; margin-right: 150px;" width="300" /></p><p>At $99.00 USD it isn't cheap, but for the road warrior it might be a handy tool to add to the arsenal if for nothing else it's flexibility. It was specifically designed to fast charge the iPad, both versions, but with the included USB tips and 12V charging port, it can also charge your iPhone, Droid, digital camera, netbook and Playbook among other things. The best thing is that it comes as a complete package, so not only do you get the ChargeBlock and AC adapter, you also get several charge tips for Mini and Micro USB and a handy carry bag. You can find out more about it at the <a href="http://www.miccus.com/products/chargeblock-for-ipad" target="_blank">ChargeBlock site</a>, and right now it appears you can get it at our affiliate store for the discounted price of $75.00 USD [<a href="http://astore.amazon.com/applethoughts-20/detail/B004S5BCL4" target="_blank">affiliate link</a>].</p>

I'm always on the lookout for compact and flexible power options, because I HATE to be traveling or to get stuck in an airport without plenty of power so I can pass the time watching movies and such.

BUT... Don't the people selling this know that, even though we don't ALL understand jargon about amp-hours and such, some of us NEED that kind of capacity information before we can decide whether to purchase?

They have the product's spec sheet on their site. Its got 8200mAh battery and uses a 9V AC adapter to charge itself....which in my book is a big negative.
