More power in your pocket for smartphones. Innergie's PocketCell.

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, February 9, 2012

Got a smartphone?  Get more power in your pocket.  I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   All of these phones with powerful processors and big screens are great…except, very often, when it comes to battery life.   A company called Innergie is out with a new solution called the PocketCell…a spare battery that can juice up phones, tablets and other gadgets.   Marketing Manager Danny Sanchez…

“This is a rechargeable battery bank that’s about the size of an automotive key.  About a quarter of an inch longer than a standard automobile key that you’d have the lock and unlock buttons on.  It is a 3,000 mAH lithium ion battery.  It will charge devices, depending upon which one you have, it will charge an iPhone twice before it needs to be recharged.”

And it ships with Innergie’s ingenius Magic Cable Trio that can work with iOS, mini or micro USB devices.  The PocketCell has a list price of about 80 dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
