I find it fascinating that we live in a world that sees things go away, and then come back around. In the case of Disco, it became popular, went away, and then came back in the ’90s, only to disappear again. Our collective need for the lowly battery is one of the more interesting cyclical love affairs. And, we appear to be at the crux of a real, serious point of disruption for this technology.
I wanted to take a look and give it a try. The packaging indicated support for the iPhone and iPod devices and look to have a number of different connectors to use. Heck, it was $14.99 too, so you really can’t lose there, right? I’ll take you on a tour of how this device works, what I liked and what I didn’t like about it – and whether I think this is a useful tool for mobile users.
