Does your mobile device run out of power? Great gizmo alert!

When I travel I use my iPhone heavily, especially to keep track of and upload to the blog.  I have a couple small recharge batteries I can slide into my pocket, but this looks like a better solution to what I have used so far.  This could be a great gift/stocking stuffer.

This is the Duracell Powerhouse Charger (2000 mAh).  It has a a mini-micro USB that will pop-out and a USB out.  You can recharge from two devices at the same time.  You can find this at a lot of stores, but I would appreciate it if you would use this link.

It’ll charge any device that takes power over USB.  That means hauling cables around, right?  This was my solution for cable-tangle when travelling: mini cables.  They took a lot of clutter from my bag and pockets.  And if you are really looking to detach from walls but keep using those small gizmos, try one of these.

From my constant war against cables and running out of power when out and around.

    My husband uses this for iTouch. Fantastic when we’re away from home.

    Have a similar device as well. My Android will kill a battery in 4 hours if I let it. My primary solution to this is to make the data feed on a pull-only or set the data to shut down if I don’t check it after about 15 minutes. It will last all day if it only gets data when I check it. Background data will eat up the battery faster than anything.
