Top 5 Travel Companions for On-The-Go Power


Ever since I discovered it, I’ve been obsessed. It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.  A superhero of sorts, sweeping in to recharge and reconnect my life. Portable power, people, is the bee’s knees.  If you read this post, you’ll recall that I was so jazzed about these products that I decided to hand them out to some lucky folks out on the street at SXSW Festival in Austin. The reactions I got from my new friends when they acquired their new device were like I quite literally saved their lives.



  • Its sleek, compact design is great for travel or on-the-go
  • No cords! When you run low on battery life, plug the portable power supply into your device and instantly get extra hours of life
  • There’s no need to hang out around an outlet – power up and stay mobile!


Below is a list of my favorite power travel companions; you can get all of them at your local RadioShack. I made a personal vow to never leave the house without one of these guys:


  1. Enercell USB Portable Power Mini USB/Micro USB
    • Up to 100 minutes of portable power for your mobile phone*
    • Rechargeable, which means no cables to carry, and it works with most micro/mini USB devices (mobile phones and MP3 players)
  2. Enercell Portable Power Supply/USB Charger
    • Rechargeable–provides up to 4 hours of power*
    • Includes mini USB, micro USB and 30-pin connector for Apple devices
  3. Enercell Portable Power Supply for iPod/iPhone
    • Small, compact design is great for travel
    • Up to 6 hours of extra power* for your iPod or iPhone
  4. Enercell Portable Power
    • Rechargeable–provides up to 8 hours of extra power on the go*
    • Includes USB-to-mini USB cable, mini USB-to-micro USB tip and a cable for Apple devices
  5. Enercell Slim Wall Charger for Laptops
    • Use as replacement or backup power supply for your laptop
    • Also powers your USB phone or MP3 player at the same time via the included USB port
    • Includes 10 interchangeable tips and nylon carrying bag

[I am now a hoarder of portable power…it’s that awesome] 

So the next time you: attend a conference, take a road trip, go camping, travel for business, take a hike, go on a bike ride, meet your friends for dinner, leave civilization, hop on an airplane, shop ‘til you drop, take a trip to the circus, visit RadioShack or leave your house, don’t forget to pack portable power. Trust me on this.

    I bought the Portable Power Bank a couple weeks ago, and now I see that it’s on sale. Can I get a price match if I take my receipt back to the store?
