Running out of power is one of the worst technological disasters we can imagine. Yes, we mean “disaster “with a capitol “D.” No contact with the outside world, no calendar, no reminders, no watching cute doggie videos on our phones; the list is endless.
To avoid certain doom, we travel with a couple of battery chargers; these brightly-colored “Magicsticks” which are small enough to be mistaken for a lipstick.
They charge quickly, are small and easy to pack, and are powerful enough to power most phones to full capacity. Made by “Powerrocks,” the L 2600mAh portable battery works with any device that uses the universal micro USB charging port -which pretty much includes any device you own.
Amazon has them for $29.95.
And if you must know, we have them in pink and purple, to match our iPhone
