- USB TurboCharger 1200 (USB Emergency charger for iPod/iPhone/Blackberry/Nokia/HTC) - Discontinued
This product has been discontinued.
This ridiculously handy product allows you to recharge your mobile devices on the move again and again. Simply plug any USB/micro USB powered gadget (including your Apple iPhone 3G/3G S, Apple iPod, BlackBerry, most digital cameras, GPS units and mobile phones) into the USB TurboCharger’s standard USB port and it'll keep even the most power hungry device juiced up and ready to go. An LED display shows the level of charge, and this lightweight and stylish battery is so small that you’ll hardly even notice you’ve got it with you.
Comes with a retractable cable and range of interchangeable connector heads.
Note: if your mobile phone comes with a USB cable (most do nowadays), it'll work with that too.
Will charge iPhone 4 from empty to half battery on a full charge of the Turbocharger 1200. however if you want to charge your iPhone 4 to a full battery maybe check out our Turbocharger 3400 which shall power your iPhone 4 two or more times on one full charge.

- Comes with retractable cable and range of interchangeable connector heads including 1 x DS Lite, 1 x iPod, 1 x Nokia, 1 x Sony Ericsson, 1 x Micro USB and 1 x Mini USB (if you want a connector for your PSP please email email@example.com and we'll add it to your order).

I was dealing with Hannah Saffman throughout my order, both by email and telephone, Hannah managed to sort out the order in time for my trip.<br />
As someone who buys from online stores frequently it is a refreshing change to deal with someone as personable, friendly and customer focused as Hannah, who really did ensure that I was getting exactly what I needed. I don't generally write emails of complaint or praise, however in this instance I made an exception on the basis that Hannah did a great job and Proporta deserves credit too for creating such a customer focused service (something that unfortunately seems to be more and more of a rarity).

My favourite product out of all Proporta’s collection at the moment is theTurbo charger that gives additional life to an amazing product such as the iPhone that has a crap battery and is pretty useless if you want to use the GPS and bluetooth function simultaneously.<p><a href='http://www.proporta.com/static/aboutus#mike' target='_blank'>http://www.proporta.com/static/aboutus#mike</a></p>

For £10 less, the Proporta USB Turbocharger 1200 is better looking and provides adapters for handheld consoles<p><a href='http://www.computeractive.co.uk/computeractive/hardware/2255615/varta-v-man-power-pack' target='_blank'>http://www.computeractive.co.uk/computeractive/hardware/2255615/varta-v-man-power-pack</a></p>
