The kit comes in a convenient zippered case for trips or for daily use.
The Energizer XP2000K Power Kit is designed for travelers who take extra battery pack on the road when they fly or drive. The portable battery pack is quite small and light, and with the included AC adapter, in-vehicle adapter and USB cable, you can charge it via wall power, car power as well as computer power.

All of the accessories included with the battery come neatly in a carrying case that has foam slots for each item.
The Energizer XP2000 battery pack measures 3.6 x 2.5 x 0.8 inches and weighs 2.4 oz. It has a shiny piano black plastic surface with LED lights on the front with a push button for checking the power level on the battery. The battery has two ports on top: a USB port for charging your device and a Mini USB port for recharging the battery pack. There is also a reset hole in case the battery misbehaves.
The Energizer XP2000 battery is a Lithium Polymer pack that?s 2000 mAh in capacity. The battery can out put DC 5V max 500 mA power which means it can charge most smartphones, MP3 players as well as Bluetooth headsets. It doesn?t output enough power to charge most tablets that require 1A output or higher. The XP2000 battery takes about 4 hours to fully recharge via AC, DC or computer, and takes about 2 hours to fully dump its power to your phone or MP3 player. Depending on the battery life your device, the Energizer XP2000 battery can add up to 4 hours of talk time to your smartphone and 50 hours of music playing on your MP3 player.
The Energizer XP2000 battery has some XPAL Power?s safety features including regulated temperature control, voltage and current control as well as auto shut off that helps keep the battery in full during standby. The battery can take up to 500 recharge times, and comes with a 3-year warranty.

The Energizer XP2000K Power Kit is a convenient solution for power on the go. It?s great for taking with you on the road and it can charge several devices thanks to the included connector adapters. The case keeps everything in place since many of these small items are hard to keep track of when you are busy traveling. The charging options keep the battery versatile.
