How is your February going so far? Here in North Carolina, we just had a snowstorm — more snow than I have seen in years. We were also expecting an ice storm on top of the snow, resulting in warnings about potential power outages.
Well, I can tell you that the first thing I did was fill up all our buckets and pots with water, just in case. But the second thing I did was charge up my new RAVPower portable battery charger. If we do lose power, I’ll be able to charge my iPhone in the house and stay connected to the world…whew!
Another reason I’m excited to have this product is because I am planning to travel to a few blogging conferences this year. And from past experience, my phone battery doesn’t last the whole day, not even close — especially when I’m spending the whole day taking photos, using navigation, updating the blog, posting on social media and making notes. Finally, I won’t have to worry about my phone dying. I will simply take my portable charger and know that I’m covered. It’s small and light enough to fit in my purse with no problem. It’s also pretty cute–I love my pink one–and it comes in blue, gold or black, too.
And it doesn’t only charge iPhones and Apple devices. It also works on various other smart phones and tablets (see product listing for specifics), so everyone in my family will be able to use this.
The other product I got was a compact 4-port Rapid Charging Station. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in a hotel with my family and there just aren’t enough conveniently-located outlets for everyone to plug in their phones or laptops for charging. With this wall charger, you can charge virtually any USB-powered device, and charge several at once.
I wish I’d known about these handy little products sooner, and that they were so affordable. I would have gotten them long before now. Whether you’re traveling for a race, on business, or on vacation, if you rely on your phone, iPod or tablet to work all day long you’ll benefit from having a portable charger on hand.
