I offer no apology when I point out that we are that family where everyone has a smartphone, iPod, Ninetendo3DS, Kindle or iPad in hand. The last time we went out to dinner as a family (Abby’s birthday), my darling husband suggested that the next time we dine out together as a family whomever is the first to check their phone should pay the bill. He said this while he was scrolling through his Facebook news feed. So yes, I offer no apology because we resemble pretty much every family with teens, young adults and parents firmly connected to their phones.
Of course the worst thing ever is when we are traveling be it over the mountains and through the valleys to grandmother’s house we go, or to a dance competition or a concert or to Children’s Hospital’s Endocrinology Clinic, or work, or whatever other adventure we might be on is when one of us (or all of us) has a low battery.
The horror of it all!
It has happened.
There is only one car charger and it might be awhile before we can find an outlet.
Definitely a problem.
Potentially a tragedy.
Which is why I gladly agreed to accept and review Powerocks Magicstick.This little Magicstick is a compact, convenient and lightweight mobile charger that easily fits in the palm of your hand. When fully charged the 2800mAh Magicstick promises to be capable of 2 full charges for most smartphones. It is compatible with seven different kind of devices including iPhone, mobile phone, mp3 player, smartphone, e-reader, gps and portable gaming devices.
Yeah, that pretty much covers this circus act of mine and our electronics.
We received our Magicstick Christmas Eve so of course we put it to the test heading to Santa Cruz for Christmas with Grandmom, Aunt Toni and Uncle Jesse. Fully charged, the Magicstick indeed came in handy charging my phone up from 20% to 100% and Zoë’s phone to about 70% from 30%. It took awhile but a charged iPhone is better than one with no battery life. Especially since the rest of the family circus was forced to take turns using the car charger on the long ride home back to the Big Top that night. The Magicstick is indeed a handy little charger to keep in your purse, briefcase, backpack or even your back pocket. The important thing to remember is to make sure that it is fully charged.
This is a review of the Powerocks Magicstick. I received no compensation other than the Magicstick itself which is being put to good use here under the Big Top. For more information about the Magicstick and other Powerocks products checkout their website here.
