PowerPak wall charger doubles as portable backup battery


Here’s an interesting idea: what if the part of the cell phone charger that you plug into the wall doubled as a rechargeable extended battery pack? That’s actually coming in November with the $50 PowerPak from Technocel.

The charger is compatible with any USB cable (device-specific tips are also included for good measure) and provides about 3 hours of additional talk time depending on your cell phone model. It’ll be sold through Technocel.com as well as Sprint stores starting November 1st.

The $50 price tag seems a bit steep but true road warriors and frequent travelers might not need much convincing since it’d mean one less peripheral to take up precious bag space.
