I am not always carrying a backpack or driving around in a car, even though I live in Los Angeles. Sometimes I am physically parked at a cafe surfing the web feverishly, sipping a hot tea, for hours on my iPhone. I can be researching, emailing, playing some Crossy Road, listening to Spotify, checking in on my cat using Homeboy, and monitoring my health with Fitbit. There’s a lot to do with an iPhone these days, as long as my battery is full enough.
That leads me to a wonderful combination of two gadgets that I can carry on my person without feeling much impact (like carrying my laundry on my head). You’ll find these two among 659 other unique charging-related pins on my Pinterest Board #OpenOutlet.
In my wallet, and back pocket, is Triple C’s Ultra-Thin 1300mAh battery. It’s about as thick as five credit cards. The only indicator is both a button and a 3-way indicator light to let you know how much battery life you have. There’s a micro USB port for recharging the battery and a standard female USB port for charging any smartphone. The USB port has a cover that slides up and over to expand the USB port. Since it’s designed to slip into a wallet, it’s likely designed to support the weight of my butt (at least 185 pounds) on it daily, and throughout the day I do impact testing (sitting, standing, sitting, standing, etc.).

On my key chain, also with little impact in weight or bulk, is ChargeKey’s Lightning to USB cable. It’s mostly a rubber, flimsy cable, without the metal cover that often accompanies a USB cable (less likely lint will be trapped inside this cover). The ‘handle’ that connects to your key chain is made of a harder plastic, so even as you shove it in your pocket multiple times a day, it never feels like it’s going to break off.

The dynamic duo in action!
The combination of both of these essential charging gadgets makes it very easy for me to be well-prepared in the event that I have to charge up my #lowbattery or assist in helping someone else out.
I highly recommend this pair!
