FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Motorola P4000 Universal Portable Power Pack

No Nifty Blue cord like on the P793.

The P4000 is very similar to the P793.  They both fit the following criteria below.  I could not get the mAh out of Motorola chat to know specifically why the P4000 is considered more “beefy” than the P793.   It is larger, the same size as my DroidX as opposed to the P793 which fits on the screen of the Droid.   The “chat” person said it has greater charging capacity.  Motorola claims you can even charge your tablet with the P4000.   It does NOT come with an AC charger.  You can use your AC phone charger to charge it or the included USB cable.   It will charge your phone much quicker than the P793.   I guess I can’t give it a raving review because I can’t accurately determine how much better it is than the P793.   If it is more than twice as quick or will charge more devices, it may be worth the double and some price tag of $79.99 at Amazon.   Frankly I haven’t seen a huge difference between the two units.   If you need more juice, go with the P4000, otherwise the P793 seems more than adequate.

The rest of this is applicable to both the P793 and the P4000 but if you read my review on the P793, you can stop here.

Like many of us, I have found myself increasingly dependent on my phone.  I get positively paranoid if I forget my phone on my desk.  My palms get sweaty when I find my self evaluating the time left on my phone battery.  I feel the remaining time in excruciating detail as I wait for my life to go black!  Reading his over, I am increasingly despondent on how fixated I have become on cellular reception.  It isn’t just to chit chat, Oh No!, nothing as simple as chit chat.

I want to find the best price on gasoline with GasBuddy.   I want to check on Roethlisberger’s condition.   Arrghh! I want to check the stock market or ball game score and I can’t do any with a DEAD battery.  

There is hope and it isn’t expensive.  This is the perfect item when you find yourself charger-less.   Those of you who have never, ever left your charger someplace you wish you hadn’t may cast the first stone. Otherwise, button up and be aware there is a simple solution.   This little fellow is smaller and thinner than my DroidX and will recharge it while I am using it.   It seems to have double the strength of the battery on the Droid.   For $27.69 at Amazon, you can slip this in your briefcase, jean’s pocket or duct tape it to the back of your phone and have TWICE as long to stay connected.   Motorola P793

Universal and portable, the P793 is a power pack that can simultaneously charge multiple devices, including mobile devices like the iPhone, Bluetooth headsets, and MP3 players. With 1420 mAh capacity, the P793 can provide up to an additional five hours of talk time.

It has a single micro USB connector that will fit many items besides your phone and a standard USB if you have your charging cable.   It charged to full charge in less than two hours.  This would make a great stocking stuffer. 

·  Universal Compatibility: Designed to work all brands that charge via USB such as Apple, BlackBerry, Samsung, LG, Nokia and more
·  Power On the Go: It’s small and lightweight, yet can provide up to 5 hours of additional talk time
·  CarbonFree: Through an alliance with the Carbonfund.org, Motorola has offset the energy used to manufacture, distribute and use.
·  Included in Motorola red Retail Packaging: Universal Portable Charger, MircoUSB CarbonFreewall charger, user guide, warranty card
·  Product uses plastic materials from discarded water bottles. Product is made from eco-friendly materials - no BFRs or PVCs- and is CarbonFree

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
