As the name “stone” implies, this power bank is pretty heavy (like a stone) due to the 7800mAh battery and it weighs 500g.
It has an output of 4A, but unfortunately it is shared with the 6 USB ports, I wish it says what is the maximum output per USB port. But nevertheless, I still think it is a pretty useful charger to have if you have plenty of USB devices to charge.
The Innergie PocketCell Duo was showcased at CES 2013 back in January 2013. It is the successor to the Innergie PocketCell which is retailing in Singapore for S$79.
The Innergie PocketCell Duo is a very light portable battery charger weighing 132.5g and has a capacity of 6,800mAh. It is capable of outputting 2.1A for each USB port. This makes charging high capacity devices like the iPad, iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 faster than most portable battery chargers. You can even charge 2 iPad at that same time without compromising the charging speed.
Last week on the 12th December 2012, eneloop announced two new limited-edition ‘eneloop tones’ rechargeable battery packs. The eneloop uomo for men in enigmatic shades of purple, grey, black and white; and eneloop rouge for women in scintillating hues of pink.
There are 8 glittering AA batteries in each Eneloop Glitter pack and each battery has a capacity of 1,900mAh (1.2V) and can approximately last through 1,800 recharge cycles. The batteries are capable of retaining 70% capacity even after five years of storage.
On the 1st November 2012, Sanyo announced the new and improved eneloop Rechargeable Batteries (Model Number: HR-3UTGB). The old batteries have a model number of HR-3UTGA.
Bought the Innergie USB Charger – 10W Dual USB Auto Adapter from VivoCity’s Challenger for S$29 (member’s price S$26.10). It is a 2 port USB charger for cars that produces 2.1A/10W which is enough to charge the iPad. This is essentially the 2 port version of the Griffin PowerJolt Micro and it looks nicer as well.
Li Xiang and I have been taking turns to charge our iPhones in the car after being outside for the whole day travelling from places to places, with this charger, both of us can charge our iPhones at the same time!
Not many of you are aware (myself included) that Pansonic has acquired Sanyo about 3 years ago.

The Innergie USB Charger – Duo USB Charging Kit (Home) is selling at Challenger for S$50 (after 10% member’s discount is S$45). I got it from VivoCity’s Challenger.
The PlugBug charger acts as an US travel adapter for your MacBook Pro/Air MacSafe Power Adapter and on top of that it gives you an additional USB port that allows you to charge your iPhone or iPad. I find it super useful for hotels that has limited power sockets. If you prefer not to attached it to your MacSafe Power Adapter, no worries as it can be used as a standalone USB charger.
