      Comments about Sony AC-UP100 External Backup USB Power Supply:

      I bought this as a gift for my Dad to charge his Sony Bloggie Touch when away from a PC. It works as described and works with other devices as well. I even used it to charge my phone with a USB data cable.

      A slight downside is that when plugged into an outlet, it seems to only be able to charge the backup or charge a device from the backup; in other words, there is no way to use it as an adapter to charge a USB device from the wall. I give it 4 stars since this is not advertised or intended to be used in that way, but seems like an obvious feature that could have easily been incorporated.

      It's a little bit on the bulky side, but an easy trade-off for holding more charge.

      Emergency power you can rely on. Only drawback is the limited juice good only for small gadgets but for the price is a fair deal.

      Comments about Sony AC-UP100 External Backup USB Power Supply:

      Not sure if it's an output voltage level issue or a current supply capability issue. This unit doesn't provide nearly as much power, even when fully charged, as a computer USB port. Probably why it's been discontinued.

          Comments about Sony AC-UP100 External Backup USB Power Supply:

          This is a great way to extend the battery in a bloggie which is not replaceable-
          It works as a a charger OR extra battery
          A bit bulk compared to the bloggie itself but has plenty of juice-
