Powerocks Battery ChargerYou guys know that I’m a little bit of a nut about safety. Especially when my daughter is involved. So when I was offered a chance to try out this Powerocks portable battery charger in exchange for an honest review, I agreed. Nobody has to ask me twice to test a cool new gadget. : )

 Don’t you just love it when a product is useful, portable, easy to use, and does what it says it will do! This little charger will give you up to 2 charges for your cell phone. (Though it says that you can charge any portable device that can be charged with a USB cable, I can’t comment on that as I’ve only used it for my phone so far.)

Now, whether on a long hike, or just caught with a low battery, I know Cait has a way to keep her phone working no matter what. What’s that worth to me? Way more than the Powerock’s price of $30!

PROS

  • Gives up to 2 phone charges (Its realistic to expect 1 full plus 1 partial charge based on my experience–but in an emergency, 1 can make a big difference).
  • It comes in several colors and at 3.5 x 1 inches, it fits easily into a pocket, pocketbook, or car compartment.
  • It is compatible with the iPhone, Blackberry and any other portable devices charged via USB cable.
  • Powerocks is easily rechargeable via the included micro-USB-to-USB cable
  • Smart push-button LED shows charge status. Blue light = 70% – 100% full, Green light = 30% – 70% full, Red light = 1% – 30% full

CONS

  • The Powerocks takes several hours to fully recharge itself.
  • Though not technically a con, be aware that all batteries discharge over time, so remember to check on the charge monthly.

The Powerocks has made it to the top of my must-have and thoughtful-gift lists.
