Apple Juicz battery ships

QuickerTek has launched a new external battery, the Apple Juicz, for iPhones, the iPod touch and other iPods. The 2200 mAh polymerized Lithium-ion battery measures 1.75- x 2.5- x .375-inch and connects through the data port and offers roughly three times the battery life of the iPhone internal battery. The Apple Juicz is rated for an additional 30 hours of music, six additional hours of video or three extra hours of talk time when used with an iPhone. the battery charges via the iPhone's USB charging cable, taking about three hours to fully charge. It has a built-in LED battery level indicator.

The Apple Juicz also charges the iPhone's battery while providing power, rather than simply leaving the internal battery depleted, so it can be detached for more mobile use without requiring a return to a charging station. The battery works with any iPhone or iPod that uses a 30-pin connector. The new battery costs $45.

    Weird looking

    Is that a weird looking device, or what? The big square in the middle looks like it is available ad space or something.

    Their website claims only 1800 mAh instead of the 2200 indicated in the press release.

    Clunky

    This this is hardly an elegant solution. How on earth to you keep working while this thing dangles precariously?

    My iPod touch 2G's battery life is dreadful, I'd want a more integrated battery pack solution like the ones that double as cases.
