    This is a review of NewTrent NT70T EasyPack 7000 mAh external battery charger: New Trent NT70T Easypak - 7000mAh iphone battery extender and ipad external battery pack iPhone charger | NewTrent.com

    Here is another great product I discovered that will definitely benefit Note 2 users who are sticking with a regular size battery and their favorite case and need backup power on the go. This particular unit has a very portable footprint and it's relative slim with dimension of 119mm x 74mm x 18mm (4.7" x 2.9" x 0.7"). It's also pretty lightweight for 7000 mAh capacity, at 6.8 oz (193 g). It's definitely very comfortable and pocket/purse friendly. As a matter of fact, this unit is actually intended to be used on the go where you don't even have to worry about power cables since it has built in full usb cable for Input charging (a fast 5V, 1A port) and also micro-usb cable for one of the Output charging ports (5V, 1A). In addition to 1A output port with micro-usb cable, it also provides 2 additional usb ports with 2.1A and 1A outputs. These got you covered for any smart phone or tablet, and can also charge two devices at the same time.

    For convenience if input charging cable is not long enough for you, New Trent also included USB extension chord which I found to be a great bonus. No other chords or adapters were included with this product. The device itself is very slick with a footprint reminding me a small external hard drive. The bottom of this power bank is finished matte while the top has a shiny piano finish. On the top you also have a discretely placed power button and 4 led power meter indicators with cool green lights. Those 4 lights partition power reading into 25% increments.

    Beside its portability and convenience of built in cables, the main attraction of this device is a whooping 7000 mAh capacity. This is some serious number!!! And NT70T has this 7000 mAh speced at 3.7V - the voltage of the actual lithium battery. To be honest, I was a little skeptical at first because external battery market is flooded with a lot of high capacity external batteries that have exaggerated labels. So right away I put this battery to the test. I had my Note 2 discharged down to 25% while NT70T was charged all the way to full (4 leds lit up). I used 2.1A output port for a faster charging and used my own usb-to-micro-usb cable. My Note 2 battery got charged up to 100% in under 3 hours. That was very impressive. After charging it up, I checked with NT70T and it still had 3 leds on!!!! Of course, 3 leds doesn't mean it's at full 75% charge, but rather between 50% and 75% charge. But still, very impressive considering we are talking about our GN2 with 3100 mAh stock battery. As a bonus, you can actually charge your phone while charging NT70T, pretty cool although not recommended by manufacturer since it can accelerate aging of the battery.

    In my opinion this is one of the top small footprint portable external battery chargers that offers simultaneous charging of two devices at the same time with one port being 2.1A and others at 1A, and having a whooping true 7000 mAh capacity!!! A must have if you need a portable backup battery and don't wont to part with your current Note 2 case (to accommodate bulky extended battery). I definitely recommend NT70T EasyPack!

    Now, here are some pictures for your enjoyment:

    In terms of bulk, weight is relatively the same and one is longer and thinner, while other is shorter and thicker. 1000 mAh is 1/3 of your Note 2 battery capacity. But NT600C has a convenience of AC adapter built-in so you can plug right into outlet, while with NT70T you can use your existing wall AC adapter for a more remote charging with an extension cable. I also heard NewTrent is working on NT700C model, but not sure when it's going to be available. If you are in need of external battery now, to me NT70T looks like a better choice.

    Which is another great option (soon the updated version to be reviewed as well). But it less portable than EasyPack and charges from AC outlet.

    Btw, I still can't deplete this EasyPack lol!!! Had it charged up 100%. Used it one to charge up my Note 2 from 25% to full, then used it 2nd time to charge up from 50% to full - and after that 2nd charge still had 2 bars (half capacity) left on the battery. Now charging it up from 45% to full again. All on the same original battery charge. I can see that it easily handles 2 full Note 2 battery charges and then some. I figured I can use Slim2 (Anker) for movie watching since it's super slim to fit into my clip stand/holder, and this one for a more extended emergency fast charges.

    Btw^2, when it charges it shows up as AC charge, not a battery charge. A very important point which confirms full speed charges without any current limiting.

    It is much easier to simply just swap a standard samsung battery. I've bought 2 original samsung note 2 batteries, if I ever do run out of battery, which I haven't really, It's so simple to just swap and get 100% battery instantly.

    You mean it's much easier to 1) charge up externally a spare battery, 2) shut down the phone, and 3) take off the layers of your case, 4) take off battery door, 5) power the phone back and wait for it to come up. Versus just plugging a little box into your phone to start charging it while you are using your phone? Hmm...

    Of course it is, you don't have to have a battery pack dangling off your phone, and it's pretty much instant. Only takes about 1-2 minutes max. My Note 2 boots up and shuts down very quickly.

    I have an external battery pack charger, but I've never actually found that I ran out of battery during the day. I can just charge it for a bit if I need it to last the remainder of the evening. If I have to go out, I simply just swap it with a 100% charged one. Each battery lasts me just over 16 hours, and I'm a very heavy user, lots of things sync up constantly, I read lots of news, and browse the web, watch videos, call, text, email.....

    Having a battery pack hanging from the bottom of your phone is immensely irritating, and isn't needed. You make it seem like it's a hard task removing the battery door, and swapping out a battery. Even a dimwit could do it relatively quickly. I even have an otterbox commuter case, and find I can swap the battery in under 30 seconds and put my case back on.

    An external battery back is hardly necessary if you have a removable battery in your phone.

    I do see your point, but I believe we are talking about two different things. External battery is a your emergency charger when you are running out of juice and nowhere near the nearest power outlet. It's also universal and can be used for your phone, or another phone or tablet. Another great function is to have it plugged it while you are watching a movie.

    Spare battery is just to continue using your phone as is without waiting to charge it up.

    This is actually the one that I am currently using. Really like how the charge cable is built into the unit itself. Quite handy when I am on vacation and need to charge my phone and iPod.
