Motorola's P790 gives your phone a charge

Motorola's P970 charger contains a battery that holds two full charges for a Motorola handset.

Motorola's latest cell-phone accessory will end the search for an electrical outlet to recharge your phone -- at least for a while.

The P790 portable charger has a 1,700mAh battery that can hold up to two full battery charges for a Motorola mobile phone, or up to 10 charges for a Bluetooth headset, the company said at the CommunicAsia exhibition in Singapore. Shaped like a miniature version of the company's Pebl handset, the charger comes in a range of colors, including pink and green.

Designed to extend battery life for additional talk time or multimedia features, the P790 plugs into the Mini USB port on a Motorola handset or Bluetooth headset. The charger, which measures 74 millimeters long and weighs 79 grams, will be available during the third quarter. Pricing was not disclosed.

The colorful charger was just one among a range of Motorola announcements at the CommunicAsia exhibition in Singapore that emphasized the importance of color.

Encouraged by the success of the pink Razr handset, Motorola is expanding its color palette to include green, blue, purple and orange, also called "pumpkin" by company executives. It is also selling a gold-colored Razr under a co-branding deal with fashion label Dolce & Gabbana (D&G).

CommunicAsia runs through June 23.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
