Manufactured by Novea and based out of San Diego, CA, MyPowerPebble is an “As Seen on TV” phone charger that plugs directly into your phone to provide hours of extended battery life, yet is small enough to fit in your pocket. Once charged, the device will give you 3-5 hours of talk time, or up to 20 hours of music time.
Neither Novea nor MyPowerPebble are listed with the Better Business Bureau, and legitimate online reviews are currently non-existent. However, you will see some thinly veiled sales pages masquerading as “reviews,” primarily due to the MyPowerPebble affiliate program. However, we did find it interesting that the MyPowerPebble is already on the market, especially after finding a very recent Indiegogo campaign (11/15/13 – 12/15/13), which only managed to raise $155.00 out of a $35K goal.
How MyPowerPebble Works
MyPowerPebble is a small, sleek, and affordable portable phone charger that puts “power in the palm of your hand.” According to the product’s website, MyPowerPebble can charge most phones/tablets currently on the market, and can also be customized with your choice of skins. In addition, if you own a business, MyPowerPebble offers a full branding program, which you can find out more about here.
The MyPowerPebble plugs into a wall socket, and attaches via a standard 5V adapter. Once it’s completely charged, you can then drop it in your purse or pocket, and keep it easily accessible whenever it’s needed. The MyPowerPebble can add up to 3-5 hours of talk time, or 20 hours of music time, depending on phone and usage types. In addition, you can talk on your phone, listen to music, and do everything you normally can, with the MyPowerPebble actively plugged into your phone.
The MyPowerPebble spec sheet can be found here, though a few highlights include:
- iPhone or MicroUSB charging formats
- 1,000mAh of power
- Magnetic close-tight cap
MyPowerPebble Pricing & Refund Policy
The MyPowerPebble is currently available only through the manufacturer’s website, and is offered as a buy-one-get-one ½ off package deal. This means you can purchase your first Power Pebble for $29.99 plus $7 shipping and handling, and get a second for half off; $15.00, plus another $7 S&H. This means your total will be $58.99 at checkout.
While we were unable to locate any refund information during our research, we did find that MyPowerPebble comes with a 90-day warranty, but only against manufacturer’s defects. Keep in mind that in order to file a warranty claim for your MyPowerPebble, you’ll need your proof of purchase, all included accessories, as well as a detailed description of while you’re filing the claim. There also appears to be a 9-month extended warranty, though we were unable to confirm pricing.
Finally, there doesn’t appear to be a method of contacting customer support directly—only through their online form. This may cause some delay in getting your problem solved, so keep this in mind when making your purchase.

I have two power pebbles for my tablet and IPhones. They work amazing and always seem to work out perfect when I am at work or the airport. Extremely convenient size considering it is smaller then my car starter. Really helps out when you are traveling and can't get to a plug in! Everyone should have one!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
