This set of three black power items for iPods and iPhones offers generic support for these and other USB devices -- you need to supply your own Dock Connector cable. myCharger ($25) is a simple USB wall adapter; TekCharge MP1550 ($25) lets you supply both an Apple cable and your own AA batteries to provide roughly a full battery recharge for a first-generation iPhone, and TekCharge MP1800 ($45) has its own lithium ion rechargeable battery inside, capable of more than fully recharging a first-generation iPhone once, as well as the straight-from-Taiwan ability to serve as an LED-powered light. Each is packaged with a retractable USB cable, tips for a bunch of non-Apple devices, a carrying bag and a lanyard necklace.



Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
