Motorola P4000 Universal Portable Power Pack hands-on
We’ve all been there at one point or another, you know what it is, that time when you’re running low on juice with your smartphone, and you just simply don’t have enough time to juice it back to health. Well, if this a predicament you find yourself on a daily basis, you ought to think about carrying along a battery pack charger of some kind – say like the Motorola P4000 Universal Portable Power Pack.

At first glance, this battery pack can be mistaken as any one of Moto’s razor slim smartphones, since its overall dimensions is similar. Sleek enough to tuck away discretely into your pocket, the Motorola P4000 Universal Portable Power Pack has a textured plastic body that’s rigid enough to repel any nasty baddies from staying stuck onto it. At the same time, it’s soundly solid with its overall construction. Outfitted with a 4,000 mAh battery, it pales in comparison to others we’ve seen in the past, but then again, this is something that’s super pocket friendly. Worthy of being mentioned too, the Motorola P4000 Universal Portable Power Pack is eco-friendly minded as well because it contains no BFRs, PVC, and it’s certified as CarbonFree.

Adorning the one side its bezel, there’s a microUSB port to charge its internal battery (with the supplied microUSB cable), button that lights up the LEDs on its façade to show how much juice is left in the tank, and a full-sized USB port to charge up your various devices (8W output). Snaking around most of the side, there’s also an integrated microUSB cable that you can use to charge any devices donning the appropriate connection. Using an iPhone 5, the Motorola P4000 Universal Portable Power Pack is able to charge it up almost twice over – but even better is the fact that it offers speedy charging times over other battery packs.

Sure, the $80 price might be somewhat high up there for something carrying a 4,000 mAh battery inside of its body, but what you’re paying here is for the sleek profile and portability of the Motorola P4000 Universal Portable Power Pack. Plus, we can’t forget to mention about its rapid charging time as well. What other battery pack can you hide away so discretely into your pocket?

that's nice. i had a smaller Motorola external battery that i gave to my mom to use with the Droid Razr M that i also gave her and it works well. if i needed something like this though i think i'd get the Mophie Powerstation.
