Can I just say that I often…OFTEN…find my phone without any battery life left at the most inopportune time? Like when I absolutely NEED to snap a picture of my cat sitting like a human in the most undignified way possible with her legs sprawled out in front of her. Or maybe when my fried egg and sausage and quinoa breakfast, accompanied by pretty fruit demands to be documented. Because…healthy! It’s possible that I’m exaggerating. But it’s also possible that I am being dead serious. You decide.
I also regularly arrive places and look down at my phone only to realize I’m mere seconds from my phone shutting off. Like when I get to the grocery store and I go to pull up my grocery list. Ack! Or I need to pull up Planning Center at church to be able to know what music to pass out. You might have to trust me on this one. But “Ack!” applies here as well.
And here’s the thing. Every time I get an extra cord and car charger actually INTO my car, someone “borrows” it or it just dies. How does that even happen? Oh the joys of having a teenager.
What’s a girl to do? I recently received this snazzy little portable charger for free to test out, and I have to say…it’s fantastic. I was able to give my iPhone 5 a full charge in under and hour. And it’s bright pink. And it came with a little tiny bag to keep it AND the charging cord in, so I won’t have to try to remember where I left it. My problem is solved (Well, one of them is. I’m a work in progress with many problems to solve)…as long as I remember to keep it charged up when I need it.
I’m so glad I’ll have this when I go on my girl’s trip later this spring so I can charge on the go. We use Siri to give us walking navigation and directions to the best restaurants. Plus, I love taking photos and I’m sure I’ll need a little extra juice for my phone on those long days of sightseeing.
What are some of the best little tech gadgets you’ve found to make your life better?
p.s. That beautiful lock screen pic? It came from She Reads Truth. I love it! But do you know what? I’ve decided I’ll be making a free one for YOU, so be sure to check back in for the #fridayfreebie this week.
