Losing power in your phone is extremely frustrating. With modern gadgets like the iPhone barely lasting 8 hours of charge with frequent use, it's very likely that most of us will be caught out with low battery whilst we are out after work and without a power plug or USB socket in sight. With so many processor intensive distractions like media and games, smartphones will probably run out of power right when you need it most - when want to make a phone call at the end of the day. In this respect, the Kensington Ultra Portable Battery Pack does a great job of charging devices like the iPhone 3GS for 90-110% of its battery.

The Kensington Ultra Portable Battery Pack itself is fairly slim for the amount of power it delivers. This battery is best used stored inside your bag and only taken out during an emergency. The charge of the battery pack lasts for a few weeks without requiring charging again, and serves the purpose of being a very reliable emergency backup for all your devices. You can check the charge by clicking a grey button, which will light up blue LEDs depending on what the percentage of charge is left. The battery pack includes a power USB mains charger (with a UK plug adapter) and also a USB to mini USB charge cable. I have found it best to find a universal integrated charge cable to minimize the amount of cables to carry.
