This peculiar backup battery probably got its name from the eight suckers and a flexible connector arm that connects to your iPhone or iPod touch. One thing for sure is that it’s pretty affordable but how does it perform? A fully charged Octopus which has a capacity of 1500mAh can charge a flat iPhone 4 to 70% of the battery life.

That’s pretty decent if you compare that to battery cases that cost a lot more. Built is average which feels a bit rubbery and chunky but it does the job well for that price. If you’re looking for a more sleeker and slimmer version, you might want to explore some other more expensive options.

Product Specs:

– charging built-in battery via USB cable: 3 hours
– charging iPhone: around 3 hours
– Talk time: up to 4 hours
– Internet use: up to 4 additional hours
– Video playback: up to 5 additional hours
– Audio playback: up to 18 hours
– Standby time: up to 240 hours
– Dimensions: 120mm x 50mm x 12mm (L x W x D)

The Octopus isn’t certified by Apple which is something worth being aware of.
