myCharge Power Bank Portable Battery Review!!
How many of you have ever been in the middle of a phone call, and had your battery suddenly die? Or maybe you're listening to your favorite playlist on your iPod Touch, and are interrupted by complete silence, and a flashing battery sign? Sound familiar? While I try to keep all my devices charged, sometimes the unavoidable happens, and I end up with a dead phone, iPod, etc. Well, that won't be a problem any more, because I discovered myCharge, a rechargeable power bank for almost any tech device!
I received a Trek2000 and Voyage1000 from myCharge for review. The Voyage1000 will charge Android or Blackberry devices, as well as most others that are powered by a micro-USB. The charging cord is built in, so you don't have to fuss with extra cords or tips to bring along. I like that these power banks come charged and ready to use. This is a super small piece of equipment, about the size of a small cellphone, and pretty thin and light. Basically, it can be tucked into your purse, bag, or even pocket and you'll never even notice it's there. The Voyage1000 will charge/power your device for right about 4 hours of talk time/. Oh, and when your power bank runs out of power, it's a simple matter to plug into your computer and recharge for another use! This is the ultimate must-have for anyone who talks a lot, travels, or just gets a lot of use from their device!
The Trek2000 is, as you probably guessed, a larger power bank. Not much larger in size, but it over doubles the talk time, allowing you to power your device for up to 9 hours of talk time. This power bank is also an upgrade in that while it includes the built-in micro-USB cord, it also features a built-in dock! The dock charges Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPod Touch (4th gen), iPod classic, and more. You can actually charge your iPod and another device at the same time, via the micro-USB cord! Again, this can be recharged through your computer, using the built-in USB cord. Both of the power banks also feature a carry strap, to make it easy to bring along on any trip.
Honestly, I have to say these are some of the most ingenious little things I've ever seen. We all get frustrated at times with how quickly our phones eat up the battery life, so why not pick up a myCharge Power Bank and never worry about it again? myCharge is available for a variety of devices, and in a range of size/power.
