Bottom Line

The APC UPB10 Mobile Power Pack is great if you think you might get caught short on a long trip. But it’s slightly expensive for a gadget that may be used only occasionally.

The UPB10 Mobile Power Pack is a rechargeable battery that APC claims is perfect for powering iPods and other MP3 players, mobile phones and portable gaming systems through their USB connectors.

The sleek, lightweight device is small enough to slip into a handbag and, with a capacity of 10 watt-hours (Wh), the APC UPB10 Mobile Power Pack is the ideal solution should a portable audio player run out of power on a long journey.

There are two methods to charge the APC UPB10 Mobile Power Pack's battery: plug it into a power socket or a PC's USB port. The APC features four white LEDs that flash in sequence to indicate charging. We found it took just under 3.5 hours to fully charge the power pack.

Then it was simply a case of connecting the USB cable to the APC UPB10 Mobile Power Pack and, in our case, an iPod nano and, voila, our iPod sprang into life.

In a bid to conserve power, the APC UPB10 Mobile Power Pack automatically goes into sleep mode after being idle for 15 minutes. Pressing the status button wakes it up fairly quickly, and the LEDs display the remaining charge.

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.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
