|Motorola P793 Portable Power Pack|
What makes this particular device appealing to us is that it's small and light. It's slightly smaller than an iPhone and it weighs only 2.5 ounces making it a guilt-free addition to an overnight pack. Although it's not waterproof, the case is durable and easily survived multiple drop tests on rocky terrain. Another little bonus about the P793 is that its built using 25% post-consumer recycled plastic. It's also certified CarbonFree® by Carbonfund.org, which means Motorola offset the energy used in manufacturing by investing in sustainable energy projects.
How much power the Motorola P793 Backup Battery can provide all depends on what you want to charge. The manufacturer says it can add up to 5 hours of talk time, but it's a bit vague on what type of device. So as a worst case test, we tried charging our power hungry Samsung Inspire smartphone. With the Inspire turned off, it added 60% charge to a dead battery. If you're interested in the Motorola P793, it retails for $40 and is available in most AT&T stores as well as online.
