Mobile Power Pack and Battery Charger
Ideal for Smart Phones

Irvine, CA—December 8, 2011—Tekkeon today announced the TekCharge™ MP1580 mobile power pack and battery charger, a more robust version of the company’s popular MP1550 mobile charger. TekCharge MP1580 takes advantage of AA batteries to provide emergency power to popular mobile phones, smart phones, iPhone, iPod, e-Readers, plus many more small portable devices.

“Unlike comparable emergency chargers, TekCharge MP1580 provides 1000 mA of output power, a significant amount which is required for power hungry devices like smart phones and e-Readers,” says Jerry Yang, president of Tekkeon. “This feature enables users to take advantage of our AA battery charger for more devices than ever.”

The TekCharge MP1580 offers several features that make it the ideal emergency battery charger:

1000 mA Output
With a whopping 1000 mA output, TekCharge MP1580 powers a wide range of devices, including smart phones and e-Readers.

Uses AA Alkaline or Rechargeable Batteries
TekCharge MP1580 takes advantage of AA batteries (alkaline, or rechargeable NiMH or lithium batteries) to provide immediate emergency power.

Easy Charging Options
TekCharge connects to devices in two ways: using an adapter to connect to a device, or using the USB device cable, bypassing the need for an extra adapter.

Micro USB and mini USB adapters are included for connection to most mobile phone and smart phone models, as well of e-Readers, MP3 players, PDAs, portable media players and other small devices. Additional adapters are available from Tekkeon for a nominal fee.

Intelligent Design
Like its popular predecessor, Tekkeon's TekCharge MP1550, this power pack's intelligent charging circuitry regulates both the input and output voltage, so it will not overcharge your rechargeable AA batteries or your portable device.

Doubles as an AA Battery Charger
As an added bonus, TekCharge MP1580 doubles as a battery charger for charging rechargeable NiMH or lithium AA batteries as needed.

Battery Capacity at a Glance
A bright LED on top of the power pack quickly indicates the remaining capacity of the AA batteries.
Universal for Hundreds of Portable Devices
With mobile power at a user’s fingertips, this lightweight battery lets users enjoy hours of extended play time on many small portable electronic products, including mobile phones, smart phones, and MP3 players, pocket video cameras, and e-Readers.

Charge Battery and Device Together
To optimize charging time and luggage space, users can leave extra power adapters at home and use a single USB power adapter to charge the battery along with two connected devices overnight.

TekCharge MP1580 includes:

  • TekCharge MP1580 Mobile Power Pack & Battery Charger
  • Retractable USB input/output cable (power only)
  • Mini USB adapter tip
  • Micro USB adapter tip
  • User guide
