There’s nothing worse than being tied down…as in stuck in one place, because your phone or tablet have run out of juice. Yes, on more than one occasion, I’ve been at a conference or mall, sitting on the floor by the wall re-charging my phone. Wait, I was wrong, things can get worse, like when your phone dies and there’s no an outlet in sight. You’re in a park, at the zoo, or on that “its so tiny I can’t believe its legal to fly” airplane, with nowhere to plug in! MAYDAY!
That’s exactly what happened to use this weekend while in San Antonio for the AdventureCon conference. My HTC One Max was charged and ready to go when the day started at 9 AM. But as I continuously tweeted, snapped photos, sent texts, and surfed social media, the battery started to drop like a rock. By 3 PM I stopped taking photos, so I’d have enough charge to make and receive calls. Two hours later, both my phone and my husband’s were D-E-A-D. Ever been in a large theme park like SeaWorld,then get separated from your family without phones? No? Well, it turns out they frown on sending up smoke signals.So, as I wandered around, trying to find my husband and kids in a crowd of thousands, I kicked myself for leaving my bulky external battery charger at home.
And then, this happened, my friends at Verizon heard I was traveling a lot this summer, and came to the rescue. They sent me the Motorola Power Pack Slim 4000, to keep me connected even on the go. Not only is it light weight, and slim (10mm thick), it has 4000 mAh with a micro USB cable attached. Since I usually carry my laptop, DSLR, and a jacket in my backpack, the compact size and weight make it very attractive.
Motorola Power Pack Slim 4000 allows you to charge up to two devices simultaneously.Four LED lights on top show when it needs to be plugged in to re-charge.
