5200mAh Portable Battery Charger
Price : $89.99
Up for review is the Macally 5200 mAh rechargeable battery.

The cables that are offered are the new Apple Lighting connector and also a standard micro USB cord. Both the Lighting connector and micro USB cable offer 2.1V of power, so it allows you to not only charge your phone faster than a regular USB to computer type deal, but you can also charge devices like Android tablets or the Apple iPad.

The touchscreen keyboard on the iPad is a very tough act to follow. Many companies have tried with Bluetooth keyboards and ended up with nothing to offer consumers that’s superior to the original touchscreen.
One of the newer entries into this field, Hatch & Co.’s Skinny Keyboard Case for iPad 2, comes closer to real functionality than similar products I’ve used lately. The Skinny Case, as its name suggests, is not just a Bluetooth keyboard, but also a case or folio. The iPad 2 slips into the top half of the leatherette case. When closed it’s a thin portfolio; when open your iPad is in front of you, nearly perpendicular to the compact keyboard. Not much revolutionary in that, but the keyboard is another story entirely. It does not feel at all like a keyboard and requires a very light touch.
