Proporta, gadget accessories specialist (they’ve got pretty much everything your wired-up heart might desire: cables, power solutions, protective cases and more), have recently announced the newest and best addition to its award-winning USB TurboCharger range.


This ludicrously (love that word…) useful little product is a compact, high-powered rechargeable battery that charges from any USB port and allows you to juice up even the most power-hungry gadgets again and again, no matter where you are – yes, Summer 2012 festival goers, you may now address the good people at Proporta as your almighty saviours. Get this little beauty in yer Xmas stockings now.

The capacity of the latest Proporta TurboCharger is an impressive 7000 mAh, and it comes with two USB output ports, allowing you to charge more than one phone and iPad (and anything else that can be powered by USB) at the same time… awesome. Sorry, there’s not any other words for this thing. Really though, it’s probably the best thing since sliced… iPad?

The TurboCharger works with all leading mobile devices, from the iPod, iPad and iPhone ranges, to Blackberry, HTC, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, digital cameras and lots of other gadgets. An LED display shows the level of charge, and the TurboCharger comes with two retractable cables and a range of interchangeable connector heads. Best of all gadget fiends, it’s so lightweight (at about 175g) that you’ll barely even notice you’re carrying it.

This is a great accessory for anyone on the move – stop-outs et al. Indeed, whether it’s the world traveller who never wants to miss that vital photo opportunity, or the commuter who’s terrified of being stuck on the train without their iPhone 4S or iPad2. Quite literally, you need never run out of power again. Very nice Proporta. Very nice indeed.

Proporta TurboCharger 5000: Get fired up on the move

Between mobile phones, tablet PCs, cameras and whatever other gadgets so many of us cart about all day, it’s sometimes hard to keep up with what’s been charged and what hasn’t. And if you’ve got a gadget that’s juice-hungry, it can be really easy to run out of power even if you’ve gone out with a full battery charge.


So what’s the solution? Well, you could carry about an assortment of chargers with you wherever you go, but short of lumbering around with a shopping-bag sized bag to carry them all in, you’d also need to find somewhere to plug them in. Hmm, not an easy option. So is there a solution? Well, now there’s the Proporta TurboCharger 5000.

This nifty little device is compatible with any of your devices that charges up from a standard USB port, and its makers say that it packs enough power for even the hungriest of gadgets – including the iPad.

With one Mini USB input port and two USB output ports, the Turbocharger 5000 also comes supplied with a number of connector heads. Its LED screen shows you how much charge it has, but its makers say it is possible to charge up the iPad, for instance, and a BlackBerry at the same time.

Could be a Godsend for anyone who travels on business, or who just spends a lot of time out and about but still wants access to all their electronic wizardry.

At £42.95, it’s not over-expensive, and it’s a small price to pay if it’s essential that you have access to your tablet and phone at all time.
