In my test-run, the portable charger came across as a convenient way to charge up a dying mobile phone without the need for an electrical outlet.
The Recharge+ comes in a compact form factor, measuring 23 x 77 x 33 mm and weighs around 79.7g. It is equipped with a power button, with an LED light and a micro USB input port and has an inbuilt short circuit which protects it from getting damaged by overcharging.
The Recharge+ has a charging jack, which you can attach to an adapter to juice up the charger. Yes, you have to charge the charger before you begin using it. I charged it up for a few hours and then tested it with my BlackBerry Bold 4 that was out of battery power. The charger went to work almost immediately, and I managed to power up the phone and continue making calls. An hour later and the Bold was sufficiently charged again.
Frankly, I was really impressed with such a speedy recovery, and the Recharge+ certainly delivered on its promise. This device is compatible with mobile phones from Apple, Samsung, Nokia, BlackBerry, Sony Ericsson and HTC. As a word of caution, always keep your portable charger in a dry and clean place. Also, never operate it in extremely high temperatures.
