I’ve tried other portable battery rechargers, and actually found this Power Rocks Super Magicstick to be the simplest and best performing. In a category pretty much viewed as commodities, Powerocks stake their claim of difference with some cool shapes and graphic designs, following Apple’s lead creating simple sensible designs that look cool and work well. While my tester was an uninspiring black, they do come in a host of cool colors to match most anodized bike parts from the late ‘90’s, and even a couple of fancy designs that your prettier half will like.
My tester came out of the box and was fully charged via my desktop usb in a couple of hours, and then proceeded to fully charge up my iPhone 4S in less than that. Then I let my phone battery drain to the red zone, and the Magicstick recharged it again without being plugged back into my desktop. I’ve yet to test how many times it will juice by phone on one charge, but so far I’m impressed.
