Have you ever woken up from a great night’s sleep to see that your cell phone is almost out of power because you forgot to charge it the night before? This can be so frustrating especially when you have to leave for an early morning appointment and there’s no time to fully charge your phone. This sort of thing used to frazzle me when I knew I had a full day ahead of me. That was until I discovered my dear friend Mophie.
Mophie is a sleek, portable extra battery that you can use to charge your devices on the go. A friend turned me onto this device while we were traveling last summer and I’m so grateful that she did. I ended up buying one as soon as we got home from our trip and I no longer panic when I notice that my phone didn’t charge overnight or when my battery is low by noon on a marathon day. It’s really been a lifesaver having it around.
I keep my Mophie fully charged in the glove compartment of my car so that I can grab it while I’m out and about when my phone gets low. When traveling, it’s light enough to keep in my handbag or tote so that I never have to worry. It also really comes in handy on long flights when it’s time to recharge my iPad while I’m working or watching something.
There are several different kinds of Mophies out there. I bought the Mophie XL Powerstation http://www.amazon.com/MophieXL/PowerStation with multiple USB ports and enough battery for 7 additional charges on my smartphone. It has become my hero on more than one occasion and truly is the “end all”.
Mophie makes a range of different sized powerstations: some thin enough to fit in your pocket, but all are capable of charging anything with a USB charger. Mophie also makes a charging case http://www.amazon.com/ChargingCase for both iPhones and Androids. It snaps onto your phone and gives it that extra oomph when you need it.
If you’re one of those who uses your cell phone to multi-task throughout the day or you like downloading movies or TV shows for traveling long distances, then you should definitely get a Mophie. It will become one of your favorite “can’t live without” tech accessories. You’ll see!
