Glad I remembered this thread before getting one off of Amazon. I'd been thinking about getting a portable USB battery charger that's better than this cheap, eBay doubleA battery powered one I have.

Thanks!

Amazon themselves have dropped it to $25.60. This looks Luke just a great thing to have for vacations so gonna go ahead and order it since I've got credit. Only 17 in stock at the moment.

Continues to slowly creep down at Amazon as it's $25.20 (with 1-2 extra days for processing) or from NYC Electronics for $24.93 with Prime/FSSS.  Hmm, do I cancel and reorder to save 60 cents?

That's why I didn't wait, they were slow to act on it and figured it wouldn't last.  With gas, time and tax factored in I figured I would only be at two dollars more and using Amazon credit over cash.

Well, my charger came today and holy Fuck this thing is a little brick, it's not heavier than the system but when I took it out of the package that was my initial impression.  Was expecting to have immediate buyers remorse upon opening it, but despite it not being a flashy thing it still feels pretty cool and satisfying just to hold and know I'll get my use out of later on.  I know that just for all the times I went to use my iPad only to realize I hadn't charged it in a week and was about to die will justify it.

I recently took one on vacation with me, and it works great! My girl was able to change her Nook and Galaxy S3 without a problem. I use it quite often because I play my Vita quite often. Definitely worth the investment.

Yeah, this thing's great.  Gave an iPad and the Vita a full charge from less than 10% and still had some juice left.

You just sold me on one.  I'll be using it for the same devices, and for 20 bucks why the hell not.  Thanks.

Yeah I have two of these and they are my go to charger on long trips. They can fully charge a dead ipad/iphone/what have you and still have enough power of charge another ipad to %25. they are pretty solid but takes forever to recharge. I was thinking about getting another but two is fine for my needs.

I actually need to find somewhere to get a psp battery. They seem to be hard to find and id like to have a backup for when mine starts to crap out.

For future reference, does this official vita charger work with devices that have a micro usb port? I would also like to use it for my mobile hotspot modem when I don't have it connected to my vita. Maybe it would work as long as you have a micro usb to usb cable?

Bought one of these things a couple of months ago, charged it and put it away without thinking much about it. Two weeks ago we had a bad storm out here, knocked out power in my area for a day. Was able to keep my phone and tablet charged so I could keep in contact with everyone and gave my Nexus 7 3g enough juice to keep Netflix going for a while . Love this thing now.

Yep, anything that can charge via USB can use it and it's quite speedy.  You use the Vita cable (or the adapter that someone linked earlier in the thread) to charge it up and then you can plug whatever USB cable you need into it whether it's micro, mini, Vita, Apple, whatever.

Amazon has a 3rd party buy fulfilled by Amazon selling at $30.xx. I bought one (I chose the seller NYC electronics which several cents higher for their better seller reputation and I actually bought from them before), beats spending $6 of gas and time to the nearest GS that has it in stock for $19.99.

They had one of these at a local Gamestop here in Indianapolis.  I picked it up and I have charged it, but not used it yet.

 

Thanks for the heads up.  If this works as well as nearly every single review for it I have read, then this was an awesome purchase.

No. Rainbows.

And it should be a no brainer if you could find one at GS. In SoCal, only four GSs shows them in low stock.
