I rarely get excited by external power solutions — phone cases that double as power packs, solar powered rechargers, AAA-battery strap-ons — because they’re usually unglamorous “hack” fare that make your phone look as if it was hotwired by McGyver (ooh, there’s an ’80′s reference right there).
But there was something elegant about the Energizer Energi to Go Portable Charger for Mobile Phones. It’s a small enough battery pack that you snap directly onto the USB port of your mobile phone, and it’s designed to ride behind it, like a mini backpack for your device.
Price: Php 795.00 at Octagon.
Two models were available. One was purely for Blackberry phones, while this, the Energi To Go AP500MC (in picture), is for certain Blackberry models, HTC, Kyocera (!), LG, Motorola, Palm, Samsung and Sanyo, thanks to its standard micro-USB plug. The box promises up to 90 minutes of extra talk time. Yeah, “up to.”
Watch this space for a review of the Energizer Energi To Go pack soon. We’ll let you know if it holds enough juice to be worth the price.
And nope, no idea on whether there are models for Nokia, iPhone, etc. at the moment.
