Zipcharge Quick Charger

The Zipcharge Quick Charger is another device that allows you to charge up your mobile phone, PDA or MP3 player while on the move.

The device is available over at Firebox where they claim the charger can charge a phone up to four times quicker than a regular lithium-ion charger. Just 15 minutes of charging time is capable of giving your iPod another 20 hours of music playback and a standard mobile phone about 10 hours of talk time. Obviously those numbers won’t match up for the iPhone and other large screen smartphone devices, but for a smaller phone that requires a lot less battery juice to keep running it certainly will come in handy.

The numbers are quite impressive and other numbers also make it sound even more impressive. A 60 second charge (just 1 minute) on an Apple iPod will bring an extra 2 hours of music playback as well as 8 hours of standby for a mobile phone. In the 60 second charge a digital camera is able to capture about 80 more photos (obviously depending on the model you are charging).
