Mophie Powerstation Giveaway

by Robyn Wright on June 12, 2013

in Reviews & Giveaways,Tech

Have you ever been out somewhere and realized your smartphone (or other device) was just about out of power? This has happened to me lots and lots of times. While battery life is getting better on some of our devices, for people on the go – like me – power is still an issue. Enter the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation!

Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation

Some of you might be thinking, “what’s the big deal, just plug in.” That is not always possible though. When I have an outlet I try to go that route, but sometimes you can’t even use the outlet unless you want to stand there and babysit your phone while it charges so no one steals it. When you are not around outlets, maybe at outside events, that is not even an option. Plus, if I am using my smartphone so much that my battery is low that means I am doing something that I want to be using my phone a lot for, like taking pictures, sharing on Instagram, using the GPS, etc. What I need is portable power! That is exactly what the Mophie is, portable power.

Verizon Wireless gave me two Mophie Juice Pack PowerstationsYou pre-charge your Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation by plugging it in. It comes with a cable that plugs into the Mophie on one end and the other plugs into a USB outlet. Once Mophie is charged up just keep it with you and when you are on the go if you notice your smartphone, tablet, or any USB device is low on power just plug the Mophie into the device using the cable you normally would use to charge up that device. Mophie instantly starts bringing your power back up! There is nothing tethering you to a wall, you can walk around with the device and the Mophie as needed. Think about your summer vacation. Maybe spending the day at a theme park? A Mophie is a life saver! Now you will still be able to use your smartphone to capture all those fun photos even at the end of the day. The Mophie can be recharged over and over again to be ready when you need it.

For me, when I attended social media conferences and blogging events I almost always need more power before my day is done. If you have seen me at an event you know my phone is always in my hand and I use it continually – it is just part of my job of being in social media.

On my trip to the Verizon Wireless Headquarters last week for the Verizon Insider’s event (DISCLOSURE: The trip was paid for by Verizon Wireless and I am also compensated regularly by TheOnlineMom on behalf of Verizon Wireless for social media work I do for them), Verizon Wireless gave me not one, but two Mophie Juice Pack Powerstations! One for me and one to give away to my readers. Woohoo! Thanks Verizon!

Verizon Wireless Mophie Sale June 2013
Why do you ask? To promote that this month at the Verizon Wireless Stores (both online store and in person stores) the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation is the product of the month and is $10 off for all of June! No special code required. This would be a great gift idea for dads or grads too. I promise they will use it.

OMG! I soooo need this! When I attend conferences or meeting clear across the state, I constantly suffer from battery drainage. I’m going to Chicago in a few weeks and I know I’d put the Mohpie Juice Pack to good use!

2 April D. Thompson June 12, 2013 at 2:22 pm

I travel a lot and I continue to run out of juice on the road. On a recent press trip to Spain, I ran out of juice on a tour through Salvador Dali’s house. It’s happened all over Jamaica, recently in Toronto at a travel blogger conference, TBEX, and so many places. Smart phones are great, but battery life not so much. Would love to win this mophie pack!

This happens to me all of the time! Most recently, it happened at a major theme park. And, it happened just when I was supposed to text my husband about where to meet up with him and the kids. Very inconvenient!

13 Natasha June 12, 2013 at 4:24 pm

I really could have used a Mophie when my phone lost power at Disney. I couldn’t coordinate with my husband when we split up, each with a kid. It’s crazy how much we depend on our phones!

14 feathermaye June 12, 2013 at 5:16 pm

I hate being in the car when my charge runs low, and this is so much more convenient that a cigarette-lighter charger!

Driving to Florida from PA and our car charger died and both cell phones were dying and we were relying on the GPS on our phones – it was crazy!!! We were in the middle of nowhere – totally could have used this!!! ksuedrain@gmail.com

I was at the beach with my family a month ago and my phone battery was draining quickly, so I had to reduce the amount of pictures I could take of my niece. Precious moments shouldn’t be missed and should be share. This is a great addition to any device and will solve a lot of reoccurring problems myself and others have. Sounds like a lifesaver everyone should own.

We ran out of gas about 2 or 3 miles down the road from our house and my girlfriend phone had just died. Thank god for nice people. Some guy stopped and went and got us gas, but it could have been a terrible time and it would have been so much easier if her phone hadn’t died.
