So you’re at the office and you suddenly hear a familiar sound, the dreaded low battery beep from your phone and you are expecting an important call soon, what are you to do. Well this morning you phone read that it had a full charge so you didn’t think to grab your wall charger, but like so many stupid cell phones it lied and now you are in desperate need for a quick charge. Fortunately you never leave home without your Callpod Fuel Tank. With this extremely handy device you quickly pull out the connector that you need and you are ready to charge your phone wherever you are.

Testing:

Well what else do you think I could do with it other than charge things with it. To start I charged it to full, even though it said it had some charge in it I decided it would probably be best to make sure it had a full charge before playing with it. After that I found that my PSP was almost dead so I charged that up and saw that the charge pod had more than enough charge left to do it again so I set it up so my PSP would run all night and be dead by morning so later I would charge it once more and still had enough charge it charge my phone (once I got my one free adapter, and expect a long wait if you are shipping it to a Canadian post office box). Beyond that what else do you want me to do, I have charged it a few times in a couple of weeks and have found that it delivers a nice solid charge to what ever I have connected to it. Something else that I liked about the callpod Fule Tank was the fact that it doesn’t get hot like some other devices that you have to charge up and neither do the devices that you connect to the Callpod Fuel Tank.

Conclusion:

In the end I have found the Callpod Fuel Tank to be increadibly helpful. No longer do I have to pack a bunch of charging cables to make sure that I don’t lose my phone for a day if I am out of town.
And just because you all know its coming, yes I would strongly recommend this product. For those that have ever been in a similar situation such as in the intro, such as at the office or on the road, or even at a friend’s house, with this easy to carry device you never have to worry about losing the charge on any of your mobile devices (as long as you get the chance to charge it up every once in awhile).
Pros:

  • Easy to take with you
  • Can charge two devices at the same time
  • Easy to use
  • Can charge over 2000 different types of mobile devices (if you have to correct adaptors of course)

Cons:

  • Can’t think of any at the moment
