With the amount of portable chargers out these days, it's hard finding one which actually is capable of doing what it says and is at a good price.
Pama have come out with a portable charger which is the size of an average phone and packs 4000mAH which is over two times the size of the average smartphone battery.
The charger comes with nine different tips which should accommodate nearly all your needs. It obviously includes the main ones like the Nokia tips, MicroUSB, MiniUSB and the proprietary Apple tip.
When you put the charger on, the Pama sign lights up a blue colour obviously confirming the charger is on. There is also a button which tells you how much charge there is left. There are four LED's indicating the charge level.
With the charger having a 4000mAH it easily charges my HTC desire from being completely dead, twice. I could have easily gone five days with this portable charger without having to charge my HTC Desire from the mains. It's a life savoir when you know you're going to be out and about and won't be near the mains.
The charger is small and about the size of my HTC Desire, however it is thicker. This isn't much of a problem because it can easily fit into your pocket so you have it always.
There is a problem with the charger though. It will not charge an iPad. Because of the high output needed to charge an iPad not just any charger can charge it. This portable charger is not capable of the high output which the iPad needs to be able to charge the battery. Also the charger is made of a cheap plastic, making it feel as though it could easily break under a quite a bit of pressure.
The experience with this charger is more than what I was expecting because of other chargers I have used in the past. It easily charges my HTC Desire twice from dead and I'm sure will be able to do the same for most smartphones out there. This is specifically built for smaller devices such as smartphones and iPods. It's a great way to pack a lot of power in a small size. Just be weary that it does not charge the iPad and it does have a cheap plasticy feel which is not that great. However at £30.95 it is very good value for the power you get.
As always, if you want to know something specific about the product, leave a comment below and I'll try to answer your question as best as possible.
