A chance to win a myCharge HubPlus!
Whether we’re traveling abroad or taking the railroad into Manhattan for the day, we always take a portable charger with us.
We find that even half-day jaunts spent touring a city—perhaps, as part of a cruise, land tour or road trip—can drain a cellphone battery, especially if you’re a heavy user of maps and social media apps.
And unless you snag a seat next to an outlet or charging station, it can be hard to find a place to charge your smartphone at airports, even in some premium lounges.
The answer: Stashing a backup charging device in your purse, backpack or pocket of your travel vest offers the convenience of being able to charge your phone on your lap or in your pocket—and gives you one less thing to worry about!
A Simple Solution: The myCharge HubPlus
We recently received an all-in-one myCharge HubPlus portable charger for review. The unit offers a simple, functional solution for battery-drained travelers. We liked that it came already-charged out of the box without a wait.
What else we liked about this unit:
The portable charger allows you to quickly recharge your phone (or other USB device) up to 4 times. The charge is 3x faster than the iPhone cube plug-in.
Although the charge will be slowed down somewhat, you can simultaneously charge three devices (e.g., smartphone, tablet, e-reader, wireless headphones).
If you do find a wall outlet in your travels along the way, you can recharge the unit again (a full recharge takes just over three hours).
Built-in charging cords
No need to worry about bringing along separate cords, the cables are cleverly integrated into the unit. The charger comes with its own Apple Lightning and Android/Samsung micro USB cables as well as integrated, foldable wall prongs.
The unique lay-flat design allows you to recharge it in a bedside outlet in a hotel or in an outlet above the kitchen counter at home, without annoying cables getting in your way.
The unit is attractive, compact, portable and relatively lightweight. About the same size as an iPhone, it’s actually 30% smaller than its predecessor. There’s an on-off switch, and a power supply indicator light at the top lets you know how much charge is left. Our last battery charger was black, and I found that the anodized aluminum case on this one made it easier to find in my cavernous purse.
