  • Cell Phone Survival! - Awesome new piece of gear

    Ok kids thought i'd share a new piece of gear I acquired!

    We all know how important your cell phone has become, and cell phones have saved alot of lives and even helped people find their way out of the wilderness. BUT with a dead battery you have a rock or a paper weight.

    There are quite a few methods of keep ing you battery charged, such as the little plug in chargers, or a spare battery etc.

    The new piece of gear I got is called the case-mate FUEL

    The reason why I like it alot is it completely replaces something I carry with me every day anyways!

    The Fuel is actually a cell phone holster.

    I use a cell phone holster for my blackberry, so this is perfect.

    The only difference is maybe an extra half inch on it.

    Truly a very cool device so far.

    You can charge it independantly or with the cell phone in the holster.

    It has 3 LED lights that indicate the level of charge it has in it.

    It has an ON/OFF button - to allow you to charge your phone from it when ever you like.

    Simply push it on and it charges ur phone as you walk or sit with it in the holster on your waist, which is where it is most of the time. Truly awesome. So far it seems resonably rugged, well designed and well thought out. A perfect fit for my phone as well.

    Now on to the specs:

    2300mA lithium polymer battery

    Fuel is powered by a lithium polymer rechargeable battery that will extend your standard battery life by 2.5 times the normal amount. Take a look at some of extra battery life features you get with the Fuel.

    * Talk time: up to 9 additional hours beyond standard BlackBerry Tour 9630 battery life
    * Stand by time: up to 250 additional hours beyond standard BlackBerry Tour 9630 battery life
    * Internet Use: up to 7 additional hours beyond standard BlackBerry Tour 9630 battery life
    * Video Playback: up to 8 additional hours beyond standard BlackBerry Tour 9630 battery life
    * Audio Playback: up to 24 additional hours beyond standard BlackBerry Tour 9630 battery life

    The best thing about the Fuel rechargeable battery pack is you can use its power only when you want to. There is a handy on/off switch that lets you save the Fuel for when you battery is almost out of juice. You’ll also love the three color LED indicator light which shows you just how much extra fuel you have to work with. Let’s face it we now live in a wireless world and with the Fuel by Case-Mate you can finally leave that old USB charger at home.

    The best thing you can do to support the site is pass it on to your friends and fav sites like other forums, facebook, twitter etc. Let people know about us! :)

    I have had that for my iPhone for a few months now. My iPhone would not make it from 6:30a to 9:00p on a charge, so I needed an external battery so I would not have to charge mid-day. I am on my third unit. The first two worked for a few weeks and then stopped holding a good charge. The first few days, I could go two days without a charge. Then it got to the point where it would not go overnight. YMMV.
