The Sony CP-ELS USB Portable Power Supply will be launching today at IT Show 2012 (8-11 March 2012 at Suntec Singapore). It will be retailing for S$29.90 and it will be available in 2 colors (black or white).
It has a battery capacity of 2,000 mAh and only weights 87g. According to my brother, it can charge Blackberry 9900 (not many portable battery chargers can do that).
There are 2 USB ports, one on each end of the Sony CP-ELS. On one end is the Micro USB Port which it used to charge itself and on the other end is the normal-sizezd USB Port which is used per normal to charge mobile devices.

Sony CP-ELS Charging Itself
The Sony CP-ELS USB Portable Power Supply is enough to give these devices at least 1 complete charge:
- Apple iPhone 4 (1,420mAh)
- Apple iPhone 4S (1,432mAh)
- Samsung Galaxy S II (1,650mAh)
- Galaxy Nexus (1,750mAh)
- Nokia Lumia 710 (1,300mAh)
- Nokia Lumia 800/Nokia N9 (1,450mAh)
- Sony Xperia S (1,750mAh)
- Sony Xperia P (1,305mAh)
- Blackberry 9900 (1,600mAh)
If you are using the bigger Galaxy Note (2,500mAh), it will only charge till about 80% full.
Technically you can use it to charge bigger gadgets like tablets (Apple iPads and Samsung Galaxy Tabs) but since the max output is only 1A, charging those devices might take slighly longer than usual.
