Review: Griffin TuneJuice

Hey all!

Today I have the Griffin TuneJuice up for review, a backup battery for your iPhone or iPod.

TuneJuice by Griffin

The TuneJuice is a portable back-up battery solution that is designed for the iPhone but can be used with the iPod as well or any other dock connecting Apple device.

The TuneJuice runs off of 4-AAA batteries which is both a positive and negative aspect of the accessory. First, the positive part is that the TuneJuice does not require a charge itself. So if you need it, you do not have to charge it with USB or anything. Just put in 4-AAA batteries and you are set. The negative aspect of this is the amount of batteries. Batteries can be expensive, especially AAA ones and if you currently do not have batteries on you, they can be difficult to find, depending on where you are.

During my tests, I drained my iPhone 3G until it was completely dead and then plugged in the TuneJuice. The battery saving features of my iPhone are: 20% brightness, 1 hour data fetch, and no other additional services running such as bluetooth or Wi-Fi. After plugging in the TuneJuice and letting the iPhone sit in sleep during the entire charge (did not use the iPhone), the TuneJuice charged up the iPhone to about 80%. Overall, not bad. I have seen better capacity chargers, but those are also much bigger than the TuneJuice.

So if you are looking for a small, light-weight, portable battery-backup solution, check out TuneJuice. It can be picked up from the http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/tunejuice-for-iphone” target=”_blank”>Griffin Online Store for $29.99.

But right now, I am going to give-away this little nugget to the sixth person below to post why they could use the Griffin TuneJuice!

Enjoy!

    It would help me when I’m traveling especially when i’m flying. Thus not having to charge from my computer and also saving my computers battery.

    This would be handy for all my iPods and iPhone 1st Gen. The batteries are now pretty much worn that it gets annoying to have the iPhone go dead in a day or less with very little use πŸ™ Charging every possible way when I can lol.
    I play a lot of music with my iPhone when out with buddys or chillin and having the extra battery power would be sweet just to whip out the portable backup pack and have some more listening time! O and playing those games lol πŸ˜‰
    6th person eh, this reminds me of the last review and me saying… ”You said give away to the 6th person to type the colors available…” πŸ˜›
    Cheers!

  • Leonard

    and well, what i would use it for is my long drive to l.a. 3 times a year, it would definately help if i cannot charge my phone on the spot, and just use it for extra music and movie watching time.

    Well, it does turn out that I was chosen at work to go on a mandate I’m Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia. Needless to say that with a 22 hours flight, I know I will badly need extra power for my beloved iPhone!

  • Congrats! Leonard you are the winner!
    Your first two posts did not count as you did not say why you needed the Tune Juice! But you ended up being the sixth post anyway!
    You have been sent an email.

    The rules once again: sixth person below to post why they could use the Griffin TuneJuice!
    You must be the sixth person AND post why you could use the Tune Juice. If you post without saying why you need it, the entry obviously does not count.

    Thanks to everyone who entered!

    I always appreciate free stuff, but this is just one product I would never want, lol (the cost in batteries would kill me). In my opinion, $30 for a plastic case with a connector is waaaaaay too much (you can get rechargeable battery packs for less than that). The thing is worth like $2 (just my opinion, lol).
