Review: Seidio Multi-Function Battery Charger
I got a surprise package to review...when I opened it, it was a Seidio Multi-Function battery charger!!!! First I will say that is a must-have product for ALL HTC Incredible owners. HTC Incredible has proven to have a less powerful battery life than we would all like to see, and so the multi-function charger makes keeping an extra battery a breeze. Now, that is not all... You can also use this multi-function charger if you have a couple of different devices by switching the charging plates....and the USB connection can be used with any USB cord for charging.
The package included:
- Battery charging plate
- Device charging cable
The features multi-function charger offers are:
Ease of Use...
- Ability to charge an extra battery and your device at the same time
- Prongs fold away for easy travel
- Additional charging plates can be purchased separately for use with other Smartphones
- Travel ready as it uses 100-220v charge
Getting everything set up, took me a few minutes and the charger is really easy to use. The USB cord is longer than the stock charger and is softer, which makes it more convenient to use it anywhere. The phone can be charged direct from PC, or the charger, just by plugging in to appropriate sources and switching the AC/USB Power switch. As mentioned above, the multi-function charger can be used with different devices by switching the charging plates, or if you have more than one device. This makes it the most needed item.
Charging the phone was nice and especially having the extra battery ready is very handy. The charging time for multi-function charger versus the stock charger is a little shorter but not by much...although considering that it charges two batteries at once, yes definitely shorter charging time. The wall charger, at least the one I had, did make a static high pitched noise, but it was not enough to bother me. I have heard other chargers to do that, so I am unsure of the cause.
Few Days Evaluation...
Over a few days of use, I can even further confirm that this is a must have product for smartphone owners which like to use a lot of battery juice. The charger is also very compact making it easy to take along while traveling, as it is small and the prongs completely fold in...which is something Seidio worked on and improved over the past multi-function chargers. Also keep in mind that the interchangeable charging plates is a guarantee for upgrades for newer devices as they come out. I can guarantee that this will be a high demand item.
