It contains a rechargeable lithium ion battery which has more than 7 times the capacity of a standard mobile phone. The Fueltank utilizes device-specific adapters - the same ones used for Chargepod - so you can customize your Fueltank™ to meet the exact needs of you and your family. Proprietary voltage regulator technology senses the amount of power required to charge your devices. LED fuel capacity indicators display when charging indicator button is pressed. http://www.callpod.com/products/fueltank

The Drone is perfect for use with Skype and other VoIP users using a Bluetooth headset that don't like to be tethered to their laptop, Mac or PC.

    Dragon V2
    Dragon V2 (DV2) headset for Bluetooth mobile phones, PDAs VOIP products and computers. The DV2 gives users the powerful combination of unparalleled range and superior sound quality.

    I was very excited about it until I went to the site and 'built' one. The adapters all come separately from the main unit. Total cost (not including shipping and tax) was 89.70. I think that is a little pricey. I'll just charge them all separately.

    You can find the tips a bit cheaper if you do some searching around. I picked up the Fueltank from Best Buy a few weeks ago and it rocks!

    I brought it with me when I went skiing last week- I charged up my BB on the slopes while still listening to tunes. Very sweet!

    Question Do you need such a thing?

    I mean really, I saw a (2)AA-battery-powered USB mobile charger at Lowe's the other day, for $9.99. With a couple of AA cells, I can charge my BlackBerry, and then (in my case) charge my BlueTooth headset.


    All for less than ten bucks! This seems like overkill to me, and overprice(d).

    I have a portable charger for way less than that and I can use it to charge any device I choose. This, even with the discount, is way too expensive for my needs.
