Macally Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery for iPhone
I've recently bought a Macally Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery from this 'Store' and now realize that it needs to be hooked up to a computer via USB to work
I guess I didn't read the ad thoroughly enough. I assumed that it would be a battery charger like most -- plug your depleted device into it and after 10 - 15 minutes, it would be recharged enough to use it until you get home-- while on the road, in the train, plane, classroom, etc.
If I'm near enough to a computer, I can just plug my dying iPhone directly into it and solve any low battery condition. I'm not sure what Macally (normally a great producer) had in mind with this $30. item. If I'm missing something here, please fill me in.
*****And BTW, I don't know how the "I Still Use Windows" tag wound up atop this msg. I '"deeply dislike'" Windows! How do I edit that tag?? Thanks!!

You charge the external battery and keep it handy, I think, is the point of this device. Best bet would be to keep your USB charger handy (the one that came with the phone) and keep the external battery topped off for those times you aren't within reach of an outlet.

/\ your takin it too personally.
are your sure this device needs to be plugged into the computer to work. i think it just needs to be plugged into the computer to charge itself.
