Review: iPhone 3G/3Gs/4/iPod/Touch External Battery

Today, we will be reviewing A-Fone's external battery, with the model number A3.BY-11.

Here are the specifications before we begin.

Battery Capacity:800mAh
Input:DC 5V
Output:DC 5V
Product Weight:35g
Product Dimension:61x31.5x17.5mm

From first impressions, the battery is made quiet solid and comes with a top case to protect the port from damage. It also includes a string that allows you to attach it to your phone (if you have an external case) so that you will never forget to bring it out. With 800mAh, the battery is good for about 50% charge of your phone, and takes roughly 15-30 minutes to charge. Now, this is not the most ideal situation because we expect to get a full charge, but with it's size and portability (as well as it's price of only 27$), we feel that it is quiet worth it's money. The build quality is also good as it is made from good quality plastic with metal roundings. The port fits snugly into my iPhone 4, and even with a hard plastic case on the phone it had no problem charging my phone. Definitely recommended for people that travel often.

Overall: 8.5/10

Suggestions : A longer charge time
