Basically it means you can use your rechargeable AAs as a mobile phone power bank and have the same device charge the batteries after depletion = no need to carry separate charger. After much Googling I only found the Tekkeon MP1580 (from the Strobist blog) can do this. But shipping from US costs more than the product itself. Surely for something so useful and ingenius there must be more than one choice?

i think the words "from the strobist blog" and the fact that AA batteries are used in Flash, that the TS is trying to tell us something else, no?

Yes it is photography related - as what kei1309 has pointed out I am trying to dual purpose to reduce weight while travelling with my flashes. However it is my fault for not being more descriptive. Anyway mostly photo enthusiasts/pros in the Kopitiam so hopefully still get some heads up :)

Actually power banks that uses AA or AAA battery isn't a new thing.. Challenger actually sells a couple different models.. I actually have one that holds 2 AAA battle n can charge using USB.. so I find that convenient especially I always can find batt easily n the USB port can b found on most latest travel adapter

I am going to use it with the iPhone 5 which this review on amazon seems like not a good idea.:cry:
