Features    [ Edit | History ]

The new PowerLink USB Adapter for iPhone is a convenient three-in-one device that most any iPhone or iPod user would find handy. The PowerLink combines a USB memory stick for storing files, a 30-pin cable for syncing your iPhone/iPod, and a charger with a built-in rechargeable battery.

Get Extra Power Away from Home
Take PowerLink with you for emergency power for your iPhone or iPod with 30-pin dock connector. It's easy to use: Just connect PowerLink to your iPhone/iPod, and switch on PowerLink's power. PowerLink boasts a 270mAh Lithium-Ion battery that provides 500mA powering current to the iPhone or iPod. That's equal to about 25 minutes of talk time on an iPhone. (Note: The PowerLink does not actually charge the iPhone or iPod; it powers the devices as an external battery pack.)

When it's time to recharge, PowerLink's internal battery can be charged from any computer with a USB port or through a USB power adapter. During charging, each LED takes approximately one hour to light up. It takes approximately three hours to fully charge the PowerLink's battery.

Use as Flash Drive
See that USB connector? PowerLink works just like any other USB flash drive--simply plug it into any computer's USB port and use it to take your files with you. It provides 2 GB, but it's also available in other capacities.

Use as Sync Cable Adapter
While connected to your device, PowerLink works just like a regular iPhone/iPod data sync cable to transfer files and data through iTunes, or to charge the iPhone/iPod through a computer. A USB extension cable is included for use with a desktop computer.

great accessory for your iphone
item arrived today, works as described, a great gadget to add to the iphone accessories i have, and handy with the dual purpose of a booster and a usb drive, even if only 2GB storage.

CHEAP! Works as described exactly!
Limited Storage.
This is a great little gizmo! Got it on sale at less than 10 bucks, bought 3 of them for stocking stuffers! Charged mine up, threw some photos on the memory stick and took it to work to await my mid day battery drain. Worked as described. It took my phone up from 52% battery to 57% in no time while I was using the phone despite it saying it was only a battery "booster". Great price, good design and it actually works! One thing to make it better though would be a micro SD card reader in the side of it.

Works as advertised - 3 devices in one
Charges fast
Wish it was bigger than 2 GB
Large width blocks adjacent USB ports, but comes with USB extension cable
Gets very hot charging
It's a unique little device which should come in handy.

It charged a fair bit faster than in the instructions - it should be 3 hours total, 1 hour for each battery light - perhaps it had some charge from the box but it took less than 2 hours to get it fully charged from the 1st battery light. It does get quite hot when charging though, but I suppose that's to be expected. It's also quite large for a USB drive and blocks adjacent USB ports - again, that's to be expected since there's a battery inside. However Macally has kindly included a USB extension cable if this proves to be a problem.

2 GB is quite small for a USB drive these days, 4 GB should be the minimum and 8 GB would be even better. The drive works like any other USB stick.

I haven't tested the battery backup time but it does work fine in an iPhone 4 (the box is old and indicates it only works up to the iPhone 3G, but it does work on an iPhone 4). The iPhone indicates it's on line power so it does deliver backup battery power. Given its size I would be very surprised if it delivered one hour of extra talk time as promised in the instructions, the specs on the NCIX page indicated 25 minutes and that would be much more realistic. That's still fine in an emergency.

Battery life could be better; 1 hour talk time is exaggerated.
For $6.99, this was a bargain. There's no way you'll get 1 hour of talk time out of it, though. I'd say 15 minutes is more than possible, and in the event that you need the emergency power it should be more than good enough. PLUS it's a 2GB flash drive, and a sync cable.

I wouldn't recommend paying more than $15 for this, though.
