You're out and about, and your tablet's battery falls empty. Here's a handy emergency gadget that will sort you out. There are plenty of back-up batteries around, but Scosche's offering stands out by including not just the usual 1A USB port but also a second, 2.1A port specifically for a tablet, be it an iPad, a Galaxy Tab or whatever. Both ports can be used simultaneously. Inside sits a 5000mAh li-ion battery, and there's a handy level indicator to show how much juice is left.
