    Default Is imaxpower external battery good?

    Big headache! My iphone runs out of battery within few hours while wifi is enabled.

    did some research. I found an external battery, "IMP500 with 5000mAh" from www.imaxpower.com. It looks good to me. Are anyone here using it? Is it a good one to buy?

    Below statements are copied from their website.
    "Its capacity is 5000mAh at 3.7V output voltage.It can be directly recharged up via iPhone AC charger and any PC USB port.This battery pack are light in weight (120g) and environmental safe, now only 59.00$ each, click here for more information."

    I checked its website, the power pack without iPhone AC charger is around $49.95. It sounds good because it can also charge blackberry, DS, PSP.

    Appreciate if someone could give me some comments.

    What i have with me is the APC Mobile Power Pack (Model UPB10). This works great.
    It can charge ipod, psp & etc ...
    It comes with a charger & usb cable to go from charger to the power pack.

    Your can shop/search. I paid $19.

    WiFi doesn't cause this it's not normal, restore your phone or exchange it at the Apple store. I've done some tests putting the phone in airplane mode with WIFI ON and I can use it in this mode for hours and hours, the battery drains faster with EDGE and 3G ON. Try it you'll see what I'm saying don't forget to forward your calls at a near phone where you at or else you'll miss all incoming calls.

    I bought one imp500 for my 3G iPhone from

    http://www.imaxpower.com

    I paid in Saturday and received in Monday. Light speed shipping. The unit is so cute and so powerful. Up to now, I can use it to recharge 3G Iphone for 4.8 cycles and still some battery juice left. I bought richard solo 1800mAh sometime ago, it can only charge for 1.2 times 3G iPhone. this one is far more powerful than richard solo. I highly recommend to buy this one

    I am happy with the services and product of imaxpower. But now they have changed the brand name to Newtrent,

    IMaxPower finds new home in New Trent

    The premier manufacturer of Lithium Ion Polymer (LIP) batteries consolidated its online presence under US-based New Trent.

    Most people, especially in the US, associate the best IPhone battery extenders with the brand IMaxPower i.e. IMP500, IMP550, etc. Recently, IMaxPower decided to place all its products under the umbrella of US-based New Trent Inc. under the website newtrent.com. This was in order to make the site a one-stop shop for those with serous external battery needs.

    You can find their prodcut ad newtren xyz . Visit website IPhone Battery 3G s, Backup Extender External Power Pack 3G IPhone for more detail.
