    I use the JustMobile Gum Pro.
    Charges my phone two times and so fast as the HTC wall charger, with a standard USB cable. No connector-inverter neccessary like with many other mobile chargers :)
    4400mAh and 130 grams.

    Turned out to be a bag of balls, sent back as faulty, charged up but didn't charge the phone, got a refund

    Thanks for the review :)

    So if you still look for a portable charger so have a look at my post above.
    I use this charger for two years with several phones.
    In meantime I tried a few portable charger but the JustMobile remains the best of all when I weight the overall features.

    When I look at the battery capacity I think it's a good choice :)

    For the JustMobile Gum Pro I praised as a feature the ability to use a standard USB cable for charging the phone as fast as the wall charger with came with the phone does.

    Meaning: Most mobile chargers have an USB plug but use a special cable with microUSB adapter for charging phones.
    So they can charge a phone as fast as the wall charger which came with phone does.
    But when you want to use a standard USB to microUSB cable those mobile charger would only "dribbel" charge the phone, also they'll need the double time as the wall charger needs.

    This standard-cable-feature of the JustMobile is important for me.
    Especially when I have forgotten the special cable of the other charger at home ;)
    Or when I would lose this tiny adapter microUSB of the special cable.

    So I hope your Christmas present will have this "JustMobile-feature" :)

    ... and I would like to know it :)
