Hi! Has it happened to you? Your mobile phone, audio player (MP3, iPod), gaming device, GPS, Digital Camera, or other gadget runs low on battery power and you don’t have your charger to keep it going when you need it most. It’s happened to me with my blackberry and I hate that…so I looked around and found a cool way to deal with it!
I found a small, inexpensive, portable and reliable way to keep emergency power for my blackberry and my ipod. It’s the powerXtender charger from igo.com.
According to iGo’s website, the powerXtender can give you up to 10 hours of talking, 20 hours of playing or 28 hours of listening. It provides emergency power for your mobile devices anywhere you go, uses 2 AA batteries (included) and iGo power tips to charge your mobile devices.
The powerXtender fits in the palm of your hand and comes with one free power tip. The power tips are unique to each device: I have one for my blackberry and one for my ipod.
There’s a little switch on the side of the powerXtender. I turn on the switch, make sure the correct power tip is on the device, and plug it into the charging port of my device. That’s all there is to it. And it works great!
I love that it uses AA batteries because I can get those anywhere in the world. I have the powerXtender in the console of my car and put it in my travel bag when I go away. I have a car charger for my blackberry but if I’m away from my car and using my bb a lot, I can be in trouble. The powerXtender has made the difference more times than I can remember.
I got mine at Radio Shack but you can get it from the iGo website for about $20 delivered. Check out the iGo website here.
Pretty cool, I think.
