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 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!
