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!
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.
You 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!
