Batteries, batteries. You can't live with 'em, and you certainly cannot live without 'em. They're a necessary evil in mobile computing, and while they always seem to die before you'd like them to, having portable, backup batteries around can help ease that sting. PhoneSuit has been offering portable power packs for awhile now, but the company's latest is definitely the most advanced, and definitely the most attractive for iPad
It's a small device, able to fit into one's pocket, and it has an 8200mAh battery pack within. When it's fully charged, it can power a smartphone for hours, and the USB output means that it's supported by nearly every major device today that supports USB
charging. It's also capable of charging the high-drain iPad, which is known to be a device that's hard to charge without Apple's first-party AC adapter.
It can even charge select netbooks; it's pretty powerful to be so small. There's a LED indicator on the outside to show how much power is left, and it's available now for $99.95.
Introducing the Primo Power Core from PhoneSuit

plant. Featuring an impressive 8200mAh capacity battery in a lightweight
package, the Primo has enough power to fully charge most mobile devices

automatic Amp switching technology to ensure that your iPad, iPhone,
Blackberry, Android tablet or Smartphone are charging at the fastest
rates possible (up to 2.1A output). Power just about anything portable!

the web and play your favorite video games. Never be out of power again
with the Primo Power Core from PhoneSuit.
Advanced Battery Technology
The Primo Power Core utilizes high density lithium-ion battery cells to
deliver 8200mAh of power in a compact size. To put the 8200mAh capacity
into perspective, that's enough to fully charge an iPhone 4 or Android
Smartphone up to four or five times (depending on the device) or fully
charge the iPad once. Our quality battery cells last for many hundreds
of full charges and hold no memory. An integrated power switch allows
you to put the Primo in standby mode and prolong its power storage. The
Primo's versatility will never leave you without the power you need.
The Primo Power Core is compatible with most Smartphones, Tablets,
Netbooks and mobile devices. It can charge virtually any device via it's
USB out port. Included are cables and tips for the most popular mobile
devices. The Primo usually works perfectly fine with your device's
original USB charging cable as well. For higher powered products such as
Netbook computers, the Core features a separate 12 Volt out port. The
Primo can make sure all of your favorite devices are fully charged and
at your command.
Apple Certified Compatibility
The Primo Power Core is "Made for iPod, iPhone, iPad" Apple certified.
Use the Primo with nearly all your Apple devices including iPad's,
iPhone's and iPod's. The Primo Power Core is one of the only Battery
packs which support Apples high input 2.1 Amp charging technology for
the iPad. Get your devices charged and ready faster with the Primo Power
The Primo Power Core is built with solid construction and design in
mind. Safely store the Primo in your bag or luggage and use when needed.
It's the perfect travel companion for those long journeys.
Battery Charge Meter
The Primo Power Core features an attractive LED battery charge meter to
display the battery cells remaining charge. Simply turn on the Core and
it will display the battery status in three convenient indicators. When
recharging the Primo, the meter easily lets you know when it's finished
charging by blinking the three indicators.
The Primo Power Core is compatible with a large number of devices
including iPad, iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Android Smartphones, Android
Tablets, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, LG, Palm,
Bluetooth headsets, GPS, eReaders and more.
