I’m a fan of portable chargers that work with multiple devices, so NewerTech’s NuPower Charge & Sync + hit my radar today. The $39.95 battery only holds 1400 mAh of juice, so one full device charge is about you’ll see with most devices. But it comes with flexibility in three different connectors — one for iPhone (s aapl) and iPod Touch devices, one for mini USB and one for micro USB connections. That should cover the majority of handhelds requiring a 5V output as well as and other portable devices ranging from phones to Bluetooth headsets to some digital audio players. I reckon that even some smaller cameras and handheld gaming devices are supported.
The NuPower won’t take up too much room or weight on the go, measuring in at 2.875″ x 2.25″ x 0.625″ and weighing just 3.12 ounces. There are plenty of other battery chargers out there, but I like the integrated A/C plug — just plug the whole charger into a wall outlet and grab it before leaving. One question though — what’s the “Sync” part of the name for? ;)
