12000 mAH ( :wink: sky) 5V battery for only $13.68? :shock:

I own one! They might not be 12000 mAh, but it does recharge my PSP 3 or 4 times before it craps out. So it's worth a purchase anyway! (Until it explodes or I die of lead poisoning... :P :wink: )

Looks a nice gadget if you need to recharge your unit on the go; however I have no use for it as I use a small adapter which charges my DS from a USB port.

Yes, appears battery is 12000mAh, however it only outputs 5v at 700mAh, according to its pic.

Mmmmmmmmmm well I guess that might have to do with "circuitry" aka remove that crap!

khaag, if you buy one of these, and open it up and remove the circuitry which reduces it to 700mAh, giving you 12000mAh output, let us know - it will be interesting to see how good it is under load. Could be potentially interesting. how do you recharge this recharger battery - via USB?

12000MAh output that would be INSANE!

Recharge your DS in like 2 minutes! :shock:

No, recharge your DS in, like, a normal amount, but, like, many times :P.
Without games my life would have no meaning.
Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!

Am I the only one who sees this as a possible power solution in portables? :?

This is annoying me: mah is capacity, ma is current flow. IT holds 12000 mah, but can only supply 700ma.

Anyway, it's probably a lipo battery and those need circuitry to stop them from blowing up. If you remove the circuit it has, you'd need to give it a new protection circuit.

Theres gotta be a reason why we can't use it. Its perfect otherwise, 2 of them in parallel makes 7.4v, enough to run most systems, close to the size of batteries the same voltage, but 6 times more mAh.
