Portable battery packs used to give your iPhone or iPad an extra boost when you need it have a tendency to be rather plain. Most are black or silver and consist of a box with a couple of USB ports and LEDs. What if you could get a battery pack that's a bit more stylish? That seems to be the market that new entrant Neptor seems to be aiming at with their new Portable Battery Pack.

I pretty much liked everything about the Neptor Portable Battery Pack. It has decent capacity in a very compact size, the colors are fun, and there are color-matched charging cables (USB to micro-USB) and carrying lanyards included.
