Every time I have to travel somewhere I need two cases: A small bag for my clothes and a big one for power supplies, chargers and cables. Working with power-hungry devices that can only hold a charge for a few days or sometimes only for a few hours you’re doomed if you forget the charger for that device. And since all chargers look the same, it’s very likely that you forget at least one of them.
With the introduction of the mobile device charger, Proporta finally put an end to that misery. Now, we’re looking at a new version of this charger, called “Ted’s Six Pack”. Designed by the UK designer label Ted Baker, the well known charger comes in a nice two-tone brown with an abundance of accessories.
Even the box got a new design. No shrink-wrap and no need of scissors. The box is kept shut by 4 magnets in every corner. Very uniqe.
Opened, it reveals a velvet bag full of small parts, the mobile charger itself and a wall-charger.
Everything unpacked we have the small lightweight charger itself, a wall charger (with four plugs suitable for most countries in the world), a 12-volts car power supply, two cables (one for charging the mobile charger and a retractable one) and seven plugs for different devices (Mini-USB, Micro-USB, Nokia, 4.0DC, Sony Ericsson, Samsung and Ipod/Iphone) and the velvet bag for convenient storage.
The charger itself is very small (smaller than my Treo 680) and holds 3400mAh of power – enough to recharge several devices in one go or put one device back to business for 3-5 times (depending on the charged device, of course).
Using the charger is completely fail-safe; there’s only one button and two USB-jacks marked “in” and “out”. Just plug the retractable cable in the large USB-jack, choose one of the seven includes plugs, plug it into your device and press the button. That’s it. The charger will fill the battery of the attached device and shut itself off, when no more power is drawn from it.
The really great thing about this charger is the USB-plug – so everything that can be charged with an USB-cable can be charged with Proporta’s Ted Baker mobile charger.
Here I’ve attached a retractable sync-cable to my Treo – works like a charm.
When you travel a lot and carry a bunch of gadgets around, this is definitely a must-have. Forget about black chargers that all look the same. On your next trip you just have to remember that brown bag with the “Ted Baker” print on it – everything you need to keep your gadgets going is in there. And best of all, it works everywhere in the world – like we do…
The Ted Baker Six Pack can be purchased from Proporta for $ 59.95 (29.95 GBP or 36.95 Euros).
