    Just a quick review:

    About 3 weeks ago a bought an emergency LiIon power backup from Dealextreme (Honkong site - free worldwide delivery):

    *removed link*

    ok, i only have 7 posts so i'm not allowed to post links.

    Just have a look at "www dealextreme com" (add dots) and enter "3060" in the search field. Then you'll see a link to the "Rechargeable USB Emergency Power Backup Pack 2400mAh ".

    Shipment to Germany took about 3 weeks, but that's normal with Dealextreme. In fact it's rather fast - i had shipments that took 6 weeks...

    If you can live with that, the price is unbeatable! In Germany similar backup power devices cost about 40 Euros...

    Build quality is decent. It feels quite sturdy. I didn't test the claimed 2400 mAh yet. But i can confirm that it fully recharges an empty Pre. After charging the Pre i recharged the backup battery, too. So i can't say how much mAh were left in the backup.

    You can charge the backup power device either with the supplied cable from a USB power source or directly via USB (the Pre charger comes to mind).

    A very handy device for only 14$. You can also charge any other USB powered devices of course...

    They have LOTS and LOTS of iPhone gadgets and accessories, but not one for the Pre...

    I've used Deal Extreme before. Low price stuff, but it works as promised. If you do make a purchase be sure to add one of these pens to your order while you're at it:

    DealExtreme: $1.33 Invisible Ink Pen

    My 6 year old son loved it.

    you have to be careful with dealextreme, a lot of their stuff is shady, for instance i've ordered some items that did not come in any packaging at all, just a plastic ziplock bag lol..

    pretty much that site is great to by cheap little items, (which they have A LOT of) but i really wouldn't buy any of their more expensive items, however.

    You're right, of course. Lots of their stuff really IS shady. That's why i posted. The battery (SKU 3060) really is ok!

    But they have a few things that are great for their price. I've bought a couple of them, mostly flashlights, keychain lights, LiIon batteries, speakers (SKU 00646 - neat), etc.

    But normally you just get what you pay for, as always...

    Hi Walter,

    After some weeks testing the device, are you still happy with your "Rechargeable USB Emergency Power Backup Pack 2400mAh " ?

    Still happy, yes.

    To be honest, i still did't check the capacity.

    Whenever i used the backup i charge it again at the first oportunity along with my pre (hey, when i'm in reach of USB why not charge both?)

    Oh, before i forget - i recently bought these neat mini- to micro-USB adapters from DX, too:

    DealExtreme: $2.24 Micro USB Male to Mini USB Female Adapter Converter (9CM-Length)

    Very convenient. Love it. I bet that wherever you are there are tons on mini-USB cables available, but not one micro-USB

    I tried the other adapter (DealExtreme: $2.39 Mini USB to Micro USB Adapter/Converter Keychain) too, but it doesn't fit into the pre! But maybe that's just manufacturing tolerance.
