Review of Brando iPhone external battery

The Good

Charges in 2 hours.

Gives an extra charge to your iPhone without the need of a power plug.

The Bad

Still looking

Full Review

If you own an iPhone 3G, you might be looking for an external battery. After all, you can never have too much battery (or too much RAM, but that’s another story…). We recently tested the Brando external battery for iPhone. The external battery is charged through the iPhone power plug. The external battery connects to the iPhone 3G through the iPhone bottom connector. It takes two hours to charge completely, and a blue light indicates whether or not the battery is fully charged.


The battery charges the iPhone in just under 2 hours. You will still have some juice left in the external battery after one charge (but not enough for another full one).

The battery is available in two colors (black or white) in order to match your iPhone 3G, of courseWe think it is a must have, and the price is very reasonable.


The only drawback we found is that the connector where you plug the charger cable in is upside down comparewith that of the iPhone. This is not a huge problem, and you will only get it wrong the first time if youaren't paying attention.

Bottom line : At $25, the Brando external battery is a must-have accessory for your iPhone 3G if you use it a lot. The investment is worth it, and you won’t run out of battery while you're on the move. For more information, check Brando's web site.
