DigitalDingus has come across a rather amazing little digital device which supplies power to just about anything you currently have in your life. Over the years, I noticed keeping track of powering my digital toys was becoming tedious and inconvenient. At this very moment, I'm thinking about the boxes of dozens of AC adapters which have yet to be paired with the original device. Bottom line, I just don't have the time to sort through them all, and over time...it is inevitable an AC adapter is going to be separated from its original device. I've accepted the fact I'm human, I forget, and may the Digital Gods bless me for being such an idiot and help me find something which can compensate for my goofyness.
One of the issues facing a typical lifestyle today is...having portable power. You and I have so many gadgets which are not meant to stay at home within a few feet of an AC outlet. Oh no. Cell phones. MP3 players. Digital cameras. GPS devices. And most of us have two of each or more. Yeah, don't pretend like you don't. Hek, you're probably viewing this review right now with one cell phone on the table and another on the charging stand, while listening to your MP3 player.
The history of portable power has been an interesting one as well. Only until recently have we seen power cells reduced in size while increasing their charging capacity and RETAINING their charging capacity. These three factors are very important for a successful portable power offering. If any one of these factors is lacking, you're entire device is a liability in the field, and more than likely won't work for you the way it should.

DigiPower JumpStart Features
Retains charge for year
Small form factor
Made for several popular digital devices
A variety of adapters which will replace many different larger power adapters for digital devices
"One-for-all" type of power supply
There are many power devices on the market, but what I noticed about the JumpStart, is it's portability and rather compact size. In addition, many power devices have somewhat heavy batteries and let's face it, aren't designed to go along with your lifestyle. DigiPower's JumpStart offers a completely new take on having a backup power device for your MP3 players, cell phones, GPS devices, and anything else which accepts the included adapters.
