The Lenmar PowerPort Mini Charger & Battery is one of the latest and sleekest new entries into the cell phone recharging biz. The device is a small, thin box that comes with a retractable mini-USB cord and adaptors to fit most popular cell phones. The unit prides itself on being able to perform two full charges when fully charged and claims to have a life of 500 recharges.
While the device is a lifesaver, it does have a few flaws. The unit does not come with an AC adaptor, so you either have to use your own adaptor or plug it into a computer that has a USB port while it fully recharges. The PowerPort is also not particularly inexpensive, but then again it is no more expensive than any other mini-charger.
Ultimately, considering that this charger can go anywhere and doesn’t waste any batteries, it is a good tool to keep in your pocket or glove box for emergencies, despite its flaws.
