Today I will have a look on Ted Baker’s Six Pack, powered by Proporta
. It’s a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 3400mAH (!!) and a USB port to charge your mobile devices – anywhere! First of all, I want to thank Proporta for the review sample – the shipping from the UK to Germany was very fast (ordered on Monday, arrived on Thursday)!
The Six Pack comes along with adaptors for Nokia, Sony Ericsson and some Samsung phones as well as an iPod connector, a micro and a mini USB cable and a 4.0 DC cable. These connectors can be plugged into a retractable cable (included in the package). In addition, there is an AC power connector with 4 different exchangeable plugs for worldwide use and a USB cable – both for charging the mobile battery. Last but not least, there is a stylish bag in which you can carry the battery.

How to use
Using the Six Pack is very simple: to charge it, just connect it either to the USB port of your PC or use the AC adaptor. Plug one end of the mini USB cable into the AC Adaptor/USB port and the other end into the rechargeable battery. Make sure you use the smaller connector labeled with “in” at the Six Pack and you’ll be fine. A red LED indicates that the battery is charging. When it’s full, the LED will switch off.

Now you’re on the go and are going to run out of power: don’t panic, you’ve got Ted Baker’s Six Pack! Just pick the retractable cable, the adaptor you need, plug them all together and connect your mobile device to the battery. Now, press the power button on the battery and your mobile device is charging – very easy to use! While charging, a green LED shines.
A few seconds after you’ve disconnected your device from the battery, Ted Baker’s Six Pack recognizes automatically that the device is not plugged any longer and the green LED automatically turns off.
In my summer holidays which I spent in France I had enough time to test the mobile battery pack intensely. During the long ride to the Atlantic Ocean (2 days), I used the car charger to keep my device powered while navigating; it just worked like a charm The (USB-) power cable was long enough to reach from the cigarette lighter to the window. I used a bluetooth GPS reciever by TomTom and tried to charge it in the car for this review. Well, not much to say, it just works great!! I tested the battery pack with the following devices: Dell Axim x51v (adaptor required, sold seperately), Sony Playstation Portable, TomTom Wireless GPS MKII, Sony Ericsson K800i, PalmOne Zire 72s. (First photo: the sun was very bright, so sorry for my strange face.. )
