Tekkeon myPower Go MP1500

California-based Tekkeon remains somewhat unknown in the cell phone accessories world, but the company has produced some well-received Bluetooth headsets. The Tekkeon EzTalker Mini was particularly impressive, successfully blending a user-friendly design with exceptional audio quality. Now, Tekkeon branches out into cell phone chargers with its myPower Go MP1500. Like the Energizer Energi To Go, the MP1500 provides emergency power for your cell phone through a few AA batteries. Amazingly simple in form and function, it's ideal for adding extra juice to your phone when it's about to die and you're away from an electrical outlet. It won't work with all handsets on the market, and it didn't power up one of our fully depleted phones, but it can extend your handset's life for a few extra hours.

The MP1500's design is so simple, we barely needed to look at the instruction manual to know what goes where. The main part is a white, rectangular battery pack that holds four AA batteries. At 3.2x2.4x0.7 inches, it's larger than the Energi To Go but still slips easily into a bag in the included carrying pouch. And at 4.5 ounces with the batteries installed, it won't weigh you down either. The plastic casing is solid enough, but we wouldn't want to get into the habit of dropping it frequently. On the upside, the battery cover doesn't require a lot of dexterity to remove.
