As well, v6.5 includes the added ability to rebuild Mail's Envelope Index database system, clean Mail downloads and a toggle function for turning off and on the sending and replying animations in Mail.

So, how do you charge an iPhone (4, 4S, 5 or otherwise) with the "Tanks" device? It has a USB connector. Is there a USB to 30-Pin adapter? Or a USB to Lightning adapter? Their web site is terrible. I'm curious about adding a battery for my iPhone but I can't choose this one because there is apparently no way to connecting to my device.
