External iPhone Charging Questions

Gents - I recently purchased an iGeek external charger from NewTrent.

http://www.newtrent.com/store/iphon...ent-igeek-imp99d-portable-battery-pack-1.html

Charger was lightweight and small enough to use on my backpack hunts to recharge my iPhone a few times.

Either I got a bad one or the design sucks. When I plug the cable into the USB port to charge...it won't charge unless I keep pressure on the cable/port.

Any of you guys ever have this problem with this particular charger?

Wondering if I got a bad one or if it's a design flaw.

What are you guys using if not using a NewTrent product?

I have a New Trent 9900mah battery pack and I have had no issues. It's either your cable that has an issue or the charger. Try a different cable if you have one, and or call new Trent for a replacement

Rambler - I was looking around on the site and couldn't find the one you referenced...can you point me to it with a link?
