    Buh? You do realize that the capacity of a battery does NOT equal the fast (or slow) charge rate, right? Especially since the official Apple iPhone/iPod wall charger outputs 5V at 1A (1000 mA), right?

    The Gum Pro's battery CAPACITY is 4400 mAh, while the iPod Touch has something closer to 739-789mAh - but as soon as the battery's done charging, it goes to trickle-charge to only replenish what's lost to the iPod's power consumption. The output amperage has nothing to do with the battery capacity in this case.

    About the only thing that the 4400 mAh affects here is that the battery pack has enough charge to fully top off the iPod around five times. The output of the battery pack (1A) only affects how long it'll take to charge the iPod Touch otherwise.
