If you're in the market for a portable battery pack/charger, the Godfather of them all just went on sale at Amazon: the ridiculously massive 16,000mAh i.Sound Power Max.

2011-12-08 12h03_46

The Power Max has five full-size USB ports for powering/charging basically any device you can throw at it, be it an Android phone or tablet, iPad, Blackberry, or anything else with a maximum requirement of 2.4 Amps and can charge over USB. Another cool use is overnight-charging of multiple devices while only using one outlet. Just plug the Power Max into the wall, then charge all of your devices at once through it. Very convenient for travel.

While the 16,000mAh version is currently going for around $70, if it's just too big for you, there's also an 8,000mAh version that will set you back $45.

    Another electrical product we're ripped off on in the UK - £85 here :(

    Might want to check the reviews before suggesting/endorsing a product...Fire hazard, doesn't hold a charge, dies right around the end of warranty. Just to name a few complaints.

  • Deyan

    It's a very good value but some of the reviews were quite scary (battery overheating and melting the casing) so I ended up buying a different one:
    New Trent iGeek IMP99D 9900mAh for ~$60 (it's available on Amazon and Buy.com).

  • Bionic Beast

    Ya I agree there are almost as many bad reviews as there are good, seems like a very hit or miss product, so be wary of purchasing it.

    I bought this almost 6 months ago, and while I've only had ~5 occasions to use it (long bike rides, camping, etc.) it has performed flawlessly for me. I've only had to recharge it 2 or 3 times, but it seems to hold a charge for me. It does get fairly warm, especially if I use my phone while connected (as I do during my long rides; I like using GPS and streaming music at once), but never has it been uncomfortably so. Guessing I got a good one, then?

    I also went with the New Trent IMP9900 ext battery (2 of them, actually) for our 2 SGTs. No problems whatsoever thus far. I'm not sure about this iSound Power Max...

  • SK

    The NewTrent IMP99D (9900 mAh) was only ~$45 a week or two ago. Got one back then. It has a much better review that iSound. New trent doesn't have any reviews about overheating and lots of nice comments about great customer service.

    iSound doesn't seem worth it to me even though it looks like an attractive deal.

    instead buy car or motorbike battery and dc-dc inverter  and you will have 60 000 mah
