I have this battery pack and I'm pretty impressed with it. I use it all the time to charge my phone and my wife's, at least 3 times each. Also, the manufacturer says it has 500 times charge/discharge cycles before it goes bad, Money well spend.

I hate it when accessories come with the letter "i" prefixed!
I mean, what are they trying to prove? I won't be suprised if came with, "works will all Apples".

Thought I was the one one bothered by this. Build your own brand, make your own name and if it's a good product we will buy it. But there is so much iCrap out there (and NO, I'm not taking a jab at the iPhone) that seeing "i" in front of anything cheapens it before you get a chance to check it out for yourself.

Exactly man! What's wrong with making stuffs with their own name?
If it's good, it'll find it's way through.

i dont understand the problem with 4 hours of charging time. it normally takes around two hours to charge a phone and this thing can charge them 4-6 times on a single charge of 4 hrs.

I have had this for a while and it was definitely worth the money! I got mine on amazon and it came with a free 5500 mAh that I use even more then the 12000. Awesome device.

I much rather have a bulky phone with super battery or phone with removable battery, than have to carry around in my pocket another gadget. Fat pocket in slacks looks crazy, stupid. Men don't have a purse, so everything goes onto our pocket. This is a dumb idea. I say best to have a small slender extra battery and swop it out when needed.

If you are in a trip, extra batteries are not practical if you use the phone to shoot pictures and for internet connection shared to others.

That is exactly how I use my extra battery when I'm on vacation. Talk, text, yelp, FB, then by early eve, I'm swopping to a new battery and go to go for the rest of my walk about town. My pocket light as a feather. Not seeing why it isn't practical than this bulky device iCarrier?

Good point, but the iPhone does not have a removable battery, now i may understnad that you may have one, but alot of phones actually dont have removeable batteries. I just checked out their website, it looks like they have other products on top of this charger, and prices start at 39.95...newtrent.com. there's one that looks like its only 1/2 the size of the smartphone and will charge it 2-3 times. I wouldnt mind carrying a small one, but agreed, the icarrier may be too big to carry in a pocket, but i think this large capacity one would be used for more of a long term travel where you keep this unit in the car or the hotel or a backpack (backpacking trip) Other competition products with similar power capacities look almost 2 times larger than the iCarrier, so it's decently compact for the size. Make note that a common battery is approximately 2000mAh (iphone is around 1440) so this charger, being able to charge the phone up to 6 times is pretty nifty.
