I completely forgot that the Plextalk had a mini uSB charging option. Mind
you this is so slow  compared to the main charger I have rarely ever used
it.

Hi Ian, I don't see why you couldn't charge a pocket from the battery with
the appropriate USB leed provided the voltage is right.  Think it's 5v out
on the Anker Mini, and presumably you'd have to get the polarity right.

Hi Ibrahim,
Which would be suitable for something like a PPT1 pocket plextalk? 
I've had my PPT1 run out of juice when I've been on long journeys and
something like this battery pack would be a real help.

Thanks, Ian.

Hi Chris.

No, the 3000 MAH model is not suited to the iPad, the output needed to
charge an iPad is somewhat higher than the iPhone, this battery pack was
specifically designed for smartphones and other devices like headsets, GPS
modules, but an iPad has higher voltage requirements.  If you want a battery

for the iPad, you need to be looking at something like the Astro E4 or E5
models which are dual port power bank models.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Sounds good! Well I have another question. Is the 3,000 ma model powerful
enough to charge an iPad? As an experiment I tried the battery pack with my
iPad. It started charging from 87% to 93% before it quit working. The pack
was still working though as I was able to switch it back on again and
continue charging. But some time later it quit working again. Not concerned
at all; just curious. Thank you any comments greatly appreciated.
