Chic AND useful: Anker Astro Mini 3200mAh External Battery, PowerIQ™ Technology

When I travel with RoCK, he invariably asks if I have a charger for his dead iPhone. It’s not like he doesn’t have any chargers, but they never seem to work. Now, I understand there’s a reason for that! Did you know that all ports aren’t created alike? Some charge certain devices and not so much others. That is, until Anker Astro Mini 3200mAh External Battery with PowerIQ™ Technology came along! I was happy to be hosted to experience it.

This charger comes in chic metallic colors and can be hidden in the palm of your hand. Use your device’s USB cable (get a short one if space is at a premium) and it will give you more than a full iPhone charge (up to 9 hours talk time on an iPhone, etc.). It’s really light, too . . . about the weight of a deck of cards.

Recently, I was in Italy with some of the top travel agents in the world, including some from Brazil. Observing the elegant phone accessory, one of the Brazilians was very curious. “What is that?” he asked. “Something for ladies,” I joked. Brazilians like that sort of thing! Then, after we all laughed, I explained that it was a charger. Oohs and ahhs emanated from the table. When you can impress people who have seen it all, that’s pretty sweet!

Incidentally, you’ll really want this battery when touring abroad, because good luck trying to charge your phone at any lunch stops, etc., what with the different outlets, lack of outlets.

Here’s what they say about it:
