The Must-Have Accessory for iPhone 3G – iPhone Power Station
If you read my post, CNET Asia Community Blog Entry – Must-have iPhone 3G Accessories yesterday, you’ll noticed that I included the battery charger as a must have iPhone 3G accessory. For those who own an iPhone 3G, you all must agree that the battery remains the biggest issue and there’s no way in terms of normal usage (bit twittering and Facebook surfing here and there, forget about Bluetooth and push-email) for the iPhone to last a 12-hour work day and that’s why I regarded the battery charger as the number one must-have accessory
Well, while shopping for a MacBook Pro keyboard skin today (got one for US$5.5, HK$43, good deal), I saw the iPhone power station (1000 mAh battery charger, works great with iPod Touch too) from Brando Mobile which I mentioned in my CNET post. It was listed for US$24 [HK$188] but I managed to bargain it down to US$22. Below are some pics of it. I particularly likes the look 9comes in black or white to match the color of your iPhone 3G) on this one better than my PowerMonkey Mobile Charger (see previous review here) which works equally great. Another great thing about it is the weight of this power station, it weighs only 48g and fits great in ANY pcoket. The power station takes 2 hour to fully charged and you can find it at shops on the 2nd floor of Sim City, 47-51 Shantung Street, Mongkok. Pretty sure you can find them in Wanchai and other computer shopping arcades around Hong Kong. For rest of you folks in places other than Hong Kong, check them out on Brando Mobile (see my CNET post for the link).
