Patazon Google Nexus 7 GEN 1 Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Stand Case (Slim Rubberized Non-Slip Grip Back)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good tactile feel to keys
Fits well on the Nexus 7
Excellent battery life
Recharges with any standard micro usb

Cons: Weighs 7.4 oz

Other Thoughts: When the keyboard is attached to the Nexus 7, it adds about 0.32" to the thickness and 7.4 oz to the weight. Total weight, 19.3 oz and total thickness, 0.74". I don't use the keyboard when I have access to a computer, but when I travel without a computer, using only the Nexus 7, the keyboard is certainly worth the extra weight and bulk. I type much faster and with more accuracy with the keyboard.
Both the tablet and the keyboard fit nicely into my Case Logic padded sleeve.

Aluratek White 5200 mAh Portable Battery Charger APB03F
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Update: 06/17/2013

This review is from: Aluratek White 5200 mAh Portable Battery Charger APB03F

Pros: Nice design, easy to use and charge

Cons: Less than rated capacity is delivered

Other Thoughts: I have owned the battery about 4 days and fully charged it several times. The battery is well designed and easy to charge and use, but it delivers about half what is claimed. I left it on a 2A charger all last night. This morning I put it on my fully discharged Droid Razr Maxx which has a 3300 mAh battery. In 2 1/2 hours the Aluratek was dead and the Razr was at 80% charge. 80% X 3300 says that the battery provided 2640 mAh or about half of its rated capacity. Claims of this battery recharging tablets or a couple of phones are greatly exaggerated.
UPDATE: I recharged the battery with a 1A charger and tested it with my Nexus 7, which it took from 33% to Full and then I put it on my RAZR Maxx from 18% to 30%. I calculate that the Aluratek 5200 actually provided about 3300 mAh or about 63% of it rated capacity. Maybe my slower charge rate got more into the battery, but this run was a 25% improvement over the first attempt and I re-rated the battery from 2 to 3 Stars
