Switronix Releases the FlyPack Power Distributor

Switronix has some great products and I'm not just saying that because they're a sponsor – this new FlyPack looks really handy if you're on the road and need some extra juice! I'm hoping to get my hands on one of these for a review (hint hint switronix! HA!)

Might be real handy if you do long timelapses (giving your camera extra long battery power for example) or even for re-charging your phone on the road.

I'm not sure of the life of the charge yet, but we wanted to get this out to you ASAP.
