myCharge Peak 6000 Is Almost Equal To the iPad’s Monster Battery

Never forget a cable again.

11,666mAh. That’s the nightmare figure that faces you every time you plug the newest iPad in to charge. You really need to charge the thing overnight, otherwise you’ll be sitting there for hours and hours waiting for the battery meter to tick over to 100%.

And the myCharge Peak 6000 – like most external battery packs – will only make a small contribution to that yawning, ravenous battery. It will toss 6,000 mAh into the void before excusing itself for its own refill, but if you use it with, say, an iPhone you will be able to charge the thing several times over.

The Peak 6000 wins on design, too. The wall prongs are built in for fast hookup, as are a 30-pin dock connector and a microUSB plug. You won’t be losing any parts of this charger. It even has a pop-out USB input for charging from a computer, should there only be one wall-wart available.

The price for this well-designed back up? $99. Buy two and you’d have enough to fully charge the greedy, bloated iPad 3.

    It’s half the new iPad, not almost equal. Misleading headline!

    New Trent makes a 12,000MaH charger for under $80! I have the 11,000MaH and it charges it from dead to around 75%

    I’ve got the Anker Astro3 [http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005NGKR54/ref=oh_details_o05_s00_i00], which is 10k mAh and has 2 2A USB outputs instead of the 1A outputs on this one.
