Get Extra Device Power with the Tekkeon myPower MP3750 External Battery

Who doesn't' want more battery life from their mobile device? I think we all do. I've been on a personal quest for years to find the best multipurpose external battery that I could find. I've looked at a few of them of the years (such as this one, and this one), but every one I've looked at has had limited functionality in some way. Usually it's that it's not compatible with whatever new laptop I'm using. The Tekkeon myPower MP3750, which sells for $119 in the Digital Home Thoughts Amazon.com store, is versatile battery in that it not only serves as a power source for a laptop, but with the USB port it can power a variety of devices. I was eager to take a look at it, and for the most part have been quite impressed with it. Read more...

Keep That Zune Powered Up: the Proporta USB Mobile Device Charger

"The Proporta USB Mobile Device Charger charges from any standard USB port (so it works with ALL Proporta power/charging products in your car, home, office) and stores an impressive 3400 mAH of power for when you need it. 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 like the iPod 5G will recharge and play for up to three times longer when connected to the Proporta USB Mobile Device Charger 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."



Having just returned from a long trek (Mobius Thailand), I ran into all sorts of issues related to powering my various mobile devices, and it would have been the same with a Zune if I had owned one yet. Although nothing was catastrophic (I was fairly well prepared), this exact device is something I could have really used to keep my USB-based devices powered. Anyone own one, or something similar? How do you find using it? This is one of the few Zune-compatible accessories that Microsoft isn't selling (yet?) that would be mighty handy, especially if you're using the Zune to watch battery draining videos.
