The Battery Pack Battery Pack

I love things that are literal versions of what they do. OK, that’s a convoluted sentence I know, but the example above shows pretty much exactly what I mean.

It;s called “The Icon,” and it’s a battery pack for your iPhone that looks just like the charging icon on your iPhone. Genius, right? Here’s the scoop from their site:

“the icon”, was inspired according to the battery icon on iPhone, is designed specifically for the iPhone backup power solution. From “the icon” unique outlook, and able to extend your iPhone talk time up to 3 hours and audio play back up to 18 hours, it will be your best choice for the battery solution, not only outside appearance, but functionally solve the power problem with daily use of the iPhone. Moreover, “the icon” has an innovative design which is using EL film on its front panel to display its power status clearly, which also the world’s first one who use EL lighting film as power indicator. The easy operation is another aspect of “the icon” even though there is no extra button on it. “the icon” would charge your iPhone once you connect to the iPhone, and it will show you the remaining power while you remove it from your iPhone.

So where can you get it? Well according to their website, it looks like if you live in Asia, you’re covered. Otherwise, who knows. I can tell you though that if it comes overseas sometime soon that I’ll buy one, if only to have it sit on my desk and look cool.
