This attractively styled little power brick can be a real lifesaver. It's designed to charge your mobile Apple devices when you're on the go, and it delivers on that promise. It has a sleek look and a pleasant tactile feel to the rubberized center surface. It ships fully charged so there is no need to plug it in to your computer's USB port right away with the supplied included cable. You are supposed to be able to charge your mobile device about 5 or 6 times before it needs to be recharged itself, but so far I've only gotten 4 charges at most before it is empty (1 with the iPad). The Juice Pack itself takes about 4 hours to charge from my iMac, and the iPod Touch I tested it with took about an hour (a little longer for the iPhone). Another neat feature is that you can continue to use your portable device while the Mophie is charging it. You can see how much "juice" the pack has left using the 6 LEDs on the top face.

I think this is excellent option for charging your portable devices on the go. It's small form factor (slightly larger than the iPhone 4) makes it easy to throw into a back for a weekend getaway. If I could make it work with my HP laptop, life would be perfect. The Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation is ideal for charging smaller devices but it's great that it can top-off an iPad as well. I wish it wasn't so expensive, but if it lasts the claimed 500 full cycles and all of its touted safety features work, then it will be worth the current price tag.
