How It Works
With this unit there is no information on the website about how it actually recharges your phone. One has to reason that it contains a battery inside, a battery which more than likely would need to be replaced as soon as it is done charging.
How it's Different from Competitors
The size and lightweight design of this unit make a difference ever so slightly compared to other units. Other rechargeable units use a different batteries or solar panels to recharge naturally. Some come with suction cups or mounts so that you can affix it to your car and always be charging on the road. This device is different insofar as it has the swivel attachment so that you can hook your phone up and then keep talking with it facing you.
- Long Lasting Unknown
There is no information provided about how long the unit will last. It does say that you can recharge on the go but what it doesn't say is whether each battery pack is good for only one full recharge or two full recharges. There is no information provided about the longevity of the unit which makes it hard to determine if it is worth the cost compared to alternatives on the market.
- Recharge Anywhere
You can recharge anywhere, anytime, even while you are using your device. One of the biggest issues with any rechargeable device is that once it dies, it can take a few minutes to power up enough. This is especially true if it is been dead for a long time, and you might have to wait to use it while it is charging.
In some cases you might turn on your device after plugging it into recharge. Only to find that the application you're trying to use for the phone call you're trying to make uses too much battery power and turned off the phone all over again. With this particular device you can avoid that happening allegedly because you're able to recharge and use the phone at the same time.
Understand however that this is again contingent upon how long the battery has been dead, with the help of the battery is, and how much power the program you're using takes. Being able to simply place a phone call in the event of an emergency is much more feasible than trying to access data. Especially through a wireless provider and a social network.
