Review of the Callpod Fueltank Uno

The box of Callpod Fueltank Uno includes a Fueltank Uno unit, a USB adapter for iPhone/iPod touch, a USB adapter for charging portable devices that support mini USB adapters (such as mp3 players and Bluetooth headsets), one AC/DC power plug for charging the Uno unit itself, a coupon, and a carrying pouch.

The Callpod Fueltank Uno looks compact, has a solid build and is attractive. It has an easy-to-read battery gauge on its top. The USB adapters are also high quality. The carrying pouch is soft and trendy looking. The Fueltank Uno unit weighs only four ounces, and its small size makes it a very portable backup unit for mobile devices.

Charging up

I pressed the button on the right side of the Fueltank Uno and four indicator LED lights lit up. I did not charge any of my devices immediately with it. First, I connected it to the wall plug and charged the device itself. It took about thirty-five minutes to fully charge. Once it was charged, all six LED lights came on, so I knew it was ready to go.

I used the charger device to recharge my mostly-dead iPhone 4 and my completely dead iPod Touch 4G. As I connected the USB adapter with the Fueltank Uno, another blue light lit up on its left side to let me know it was connected, which looked nice. The Callpod Fueltank Uno took about 60 minutes to charge my iPhone 4 completely, and about 75 minutes to charge my iPod touch 4G. At this point, two of the LED lights on the indicator were still on, so I connected an Aliph Jawbone Icon headset for charging. The Fueltank Uno charged the Jawbone Icon headset for about 15 minutes before completely using up its charge.
