Sony introduces the latest USB portable charger, CP-B20, that contains 20,000 mAh battery juice and 4 USB ports (total 6.9A). It will be available from mid-August at a RRP of S$149. I think that the pricing is reasonable given that the battery is a Sony lithium battery (3.7v x 2). The weight is a put off. It is more than half a kilogram and most certainly no one is going to hold it for long time. More information in the Press Release.
