My most pressing concern when out and about is how long my devices will last. I have keyboards, phones (yes, I carry more than one), and a bluetooth headset that I carry for most trips. And if I am not in the car for most of the time, or have someplace where I need to talk on the phone or write notes for an extended period, I will usually not have enough power to last until the end of the day.
That’s why I’m happy I discovered the pocket-friendly JAVOEdge Extended Battery and Essentials Pack.
At the heart of this is a flask-sized 3400 mAh battery that can serve as a source of emergency power for your device when it gets low. And because I tend to carry devices that have multiple power charging ports, the essentials pack inclusion of a retractable cable with several charging ports comes right in handy.
I really like the small size of this setup. I usually keep the battery "flask" in my car’s glove compartment (bringing it out once a week to use and then recharge) when it is not in use.
About the only knock on the exended battery is that it needs to be charged itself. If there were a self-charging (solar perhaps) variant of it, I would pick it up in a heartbeat.
The Portable Battery Charger is $40, and can be found now on the JAVOedge web site.
