Ummm. Why would woot be wooting this, when we all know that battery packs don't work.... Or maybe I'm thinking of jet packs. Oh yea. Jet packs don't work. Nevermind. Battery packs are always good.

I used to do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it was useful.

Only rechargeable 500 times? What's the point of free tips for life if it only is good for ~2 years or so?

Can this drive a laptop at all? Even if it's like 30 mins?

So what exactly is this? A sort of portable, external battery? Also does this work with laptops?

I would seriously consider buying it if woot offered a similar product that could run my HP Pavillion DV2840 laptop.

I had suggested Xantrex's xpower portable power 100 to woot 6 months ago. It has a three prong ac outlet and the usb outlet. Great for mobilwarriors. (at that time it was on sale for 69.95 at tigerdirect)

So it plugs into my cell... could i use the cords to plug my cell into a computer to charge instead of using the battery?

Are you serious?! It says "xpal portable li-po battery pack" in the darn title! Not within the description, the actual TITLE. Do you rush here to comment before you even read the main page?

No. It's a 5 volt battery pack to charge or run portable devices. For example, you can charge your cellphone or PDAs without plugging them into an outlet.

I have an identical unit from another company and it provides about 3 charges to my PDA before it needs recharging. It doesn't have enough power to run or charge a computer.

Very nice! I could have used one of these on my trip recently as a quick backup. 22 hrs in the car (in some states where I couldn't have the phone in hand so it stayed in my pocket, using bluetooth car speaker from a wootoff). I couldn't plug anything else into the cigarette outlet. Could have helped in a pinch at one point.

They have tip number MB02 on their website for the iPhone (2G and 3G).

Don't know what the shipping & handling charge is though.

I bought a similar item from a woot-off, a Zap battery pack. It has been the second best thing ever (still looking for the first). The battery pack is useful, I use it once or twice per month. The real strength of this type of product lies in the USB cable and swappable tips. These allow me to carry every thing I need to charge all of my portable gadgets in one small bag when I travel. I use it to charge my mp3, phone (old one, not iPhone), Sony PRS-500, and my Cowon PMP. As for the charge 500x, I've carried it every day for over 1 year and have charged it maybe 10 times. Good for 50 years!

Yes. All you need is a cord with USB plug on one end and your phone's plug on the other. USB ports output 5 volts.

It looks like this model doesn't power large devices--it only has USB@5V.
Product page: http://www.xpalpower.com/us/index.php?module=products&action=show&xpid=4

XPal has a higher capacity unit with more connectors, for higher voltages: http://www.xpalpower.com/us/index.php?module=products&action=show&xpid=2

I can't think of a good signature.

Typical laptops can only be recharged completely about 300 times. You will probably lose it before you have 500 complete recharges.

Well Woot is taking down my other posts which just drains the fun out of making fun of this joke of a device. thanks for censorshipping, Woot!

I guess it would only be useful if you are camping and miles away from an outlet or a car adapter.

Otherwise, be wise and keep your $20.

Oh one last thing...FIVE DOLLAR SMART POST -FOR THE LOSE!

How exactly do you recharge the thing?

Plug it into a computer and wait?

It's gone after 300 times or the efficiency is lost after 300 times?

EXACTLY ... that's the gimmick. S/h is probably $5.99 or something equally scam-ful. These tips are worth only about 50 cents or so, and easily made at home. Reminds me of those infomercials that offer a free item as long as you pay the exorbitant additional s/h.
