The ZAGG folks are well-known for their iPad keyboards and cases, but they also have a line of portable battery packs.
The ZAGGsparq 6000 is a small pack with an integrated power plug, making it one of the smallest in this collection.
From the ZAGG product page:
- Rechargeable lithium polymer backup battery
- Built-in prongs for convenient charging
- When plugged into an outlet, the ZAGGsparq works just like a wall charger (directly charging the device, then charging the internal battery)
- On/off switch to prevent battery drainage
- 2.1A output for ultra-fast charging, up to four times faster than a standard USB charger
- Universal charger powers all USB-charged mobile devices
- Charges iPad and other tablets at optimal speed
The ability to use the ZAGGsparc as a wall charger eliminates one or two power adapters from the travel bag.
Belkin Power Pack 4000
Belkin is famous for its mobile accesory product line and the Power Pack 4000. While this is not the most powerful in this group, it can deliver a fast charge to two devices.
