Great idea, not too much power though

Initially I was amazed at the brilliance of the idea behind this product. A 2GB of Flash Drive with additional charging for my iPhone was definitely worth a "wow". However, when I started using this gadget, "wow" changed to "huh".

Pros:
- Small size, easy to carry.
- Construction ok, plastic with 2 caps on each side.
- 2 GB of Flash Drive.
- Extra cable to connect & sync your iPhone/iPod.
- Emergency charging capacity.

Cons:
- Charging capacity is only limited to about 10 mins of talk time. I charged PowerLink for a whole day to ensure that it is completely charged. Still it provided only 10 mins of talk time (abt 30 mins for iPod)
- Doesn't provide enough charge if your phone is on less than 10% battery.
- Very expensive to be only used as a 2 GB Flash Drive & sync device seeing the limitation of charging feature.

I think that most people will be interested to but this gadget to be used as a charging device and not as a Flash Drive. Ironically, it's charging capability is very limited and you can get a pack of two 2 GB flash drives for about $10 in market.

Hope they upgrade this device and make it of some better use. If interested, you can buy it from here.
