We love a good portable charger deal, and when we stumbled on this SlickDeals post with a rebate code for the TekNmotion Powermotion 12000mAh charger, it was too good not to share. To take advantage of the deal, just enter the rebate code 'MLCY06RN' at checkout to take an additional $20 off, and you'll have yourself a 12000mAh portable charger for just $54.99 shipped (plus tax, if applicable).

So, why should you get this charger specifically? Aside from just looking kind of awesome, it has LED charge status indicators (in 25% increments), and two 2 amp USB outputs - perfect for charging both tablets and Android smartphones. There's also a 9-12V DC socket for charging gizmos that still use the standard, and a whole boatload of charging tips and several cables included in the package. The only drawback is that this TekNmotion device does not charge itself via micoUSB, so you'll probably want to lug the DC adaptor with you in case it runs out of juice. Then again, you may not need to considering 12000mAh is enough to charge up a Note II almost 4 times.

    You have to setup an account with them in order to use/apply the discount. Nope, not another online account, not worth the $20

    Proprietary charging port is a huge negative. If the proprietary charger gets lost or broken or you just forget to bring it on your trip, you are SOL. There are lots of 10000 mAh chargers for around $40 that work great with Android devices and can be charged with your phone charger.

      Word. After 3 months of using one that had a non-USB charging port, I took it apart and soldered one from an old Chinese mp3 player laying around, It was That frustrating to worry about the extra charging cable.

      Everyone in San Fran lives in a green box, bro. Do you even carbon-free Prius?

        No, we have a heavy Volvo car if that's what you mean.

        Something to look forward to when I go to San Francisco later this year. :-)

    You can't really charge the note II 4 times since it uses power while it's in use (and while it's charging - the screen on, battery monitors even if it's 'off' still draw power). So while my newtrent could charge my gnex 3 times, it really only does it about once.

    Here's a 12000mah battery pack. The thing I love about this is that I am able to use my old G1 charger (mini usb) to charge it up. The only downside is that it really can't charge two phones at once, it can keep them powered, but they won't gain battery (just keep at the current %). The size is nice, not too big. It has an indicator on the front in 25% increments. Nothing fancy. The biggest plus is the price, $42.90 (free shipping).
