Smartphone Charger and Backup Battery

Batteries are the bane of our existence. Can’t live with their pitiful charge. Can’t toss ‘em because then you’re completely dead in the water. Have you been a victim of short battery life? Have you been stranded powerless in the middle of nowhere, especially at restaurants? What you need is the ZAGGsparq 2.0.

ZAGGsparq 2.0 is two devices in one. First it’s a charger for all your USB charged devices. That’s pretty much everything these days. Second, it’s a backup battery with up to four time the charge contained in your device’s battery. Charge it when you have a outlet handy. Use it to power or recharge your gadgets where there are no outlets to be found. Check out this short video to get the overview.

Note that the ZAGGsparq 2.0 has two types of USB ports. One offers an optimized charge for devices that are capable of taking advantage of this feature. The Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod can make good use of this. The other port is a plain vanilla USB charger that works with other devices that don’t use the optimized USB charging specification.

The ZAGGsparq 2.0 is specifically engineered to charge the Apple iPad. Amazingly, it adds an additional 5 to 6 hours of video playback to the iPad. It will also extend the operation of your iPhone or iPod when you are running low but not in situation where you can pull out a conventional charger and plug it in.

You’re looking at a 6,000 mAh Lithium Polymer battery with the power to charge most smartphones 4 times, the yellow LED’s onboard indicate the amount of charge available in steps of 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%. You can plug it into any outlet with 100 to 240 VAC @ 50/60 Hz. Maximum output power is 2000 mA (2 Amps) at 5V.

All this fits into a package 3.5 x 3.5 x 1 inch. That’s easily small enough to fit into pocket, purse or other bag. How much does it weigh? Just 8.6 ounces - about half a pound.

Does this sound like just the accessory you’ve been desperately needing? If so, learn more and order your ZAGGsparq 2.0 charger and backup battery now.
