The point of the device is to take a single point-of-failure (which always fails after some time) and provide redundancy--deliberately! I use a similar device to guarantee that I have available in the car a second full portable charge, for which I have been thankful on numerous occaisions.
The price of these devices is remarkable, and the reviews posted above by actual users inspire confidence. As the device I am currently using is starting to wear down (After years of service, I don't expect it to be useful for but a few more months), I am in for one...er, two...or maybe six.
If you have portable devices that are charged by standard USB, a device such as this is a must-have. And the price is outstanding. Get a pair or more. They also make great gifts.
Oh, one more thing, despite disclaimers to the contrary, a standard USB port will, v e r y s l o w l y, add charge to an iPad while it is off. This battery surely does not carry enough juice to charge the iPad fully, but may still add the critical amount of charge to get you where you need to go. While an iPad is on, standard USB charging seems to maintain the status-quo.
