The Good The Callpod Fueltank is easy to use and portable. It delivers a solid charge to a wide range of devices.

The Bad The Callpod Fueltank can be expensive if you buy a lot of adapters.

The Bottom Line The Callpod Fueltank is a well-constructed and user-friendly device that works exactly as advertised.

Though we've seen some amazing cell phones at CNET, one of the most useful phone-related products that we've ever reviewed is the Callpod Chargepod. Yes, it is just a charger, but what a charger it is. Not only does it charge up to six devices at once, but it also saves weight in your suitcase when traveling. Indeed, we've taken the Chargepod on several trips where we've used it to power our cell phone, camera, and MP3 player.

Of course, to use the Chargepod you will need a power source. And since you're not always near one, Callpod offers a companion product called the Callpod Fueltank. Like the Tekkeon TekCharge MP1800, the Fueltank is an external battery that can charge multiple gadgets. It's easy to use and portable, and it works just as intended. You can get it for $69.95.

The Fueltank measures 3.4 inches tall by 4.9 inches wide by 0.72 inch deep and weighs 7.3 ounces. Though we were expecting something heavier, we're pleased at just how compact and portable it is. It won't fit in a pocket, but it will slip easily into a bag or suitcase. The silver cover doesn't call attention to itself, and it has a sturdy feel, even with the plastic shell.
