I use a Blackberry Bold. And I love it. With it I can be really productive, not only when I’m on the move. However I have a serious problem with it, its battery doesn’t live long enough. With my intensive use I need to recharge during the day or it won’t make it to the evening. That’s not terrible when I’m not traveling, I can do it in the office, the car or with my laptop. But when I’m away I don’t always have my car, and the battery in my laptop is also a treasure I want to save.Enter Duracell Instant USB Charger (Amazon affiliate link) It’s not something new. There have been external batteries for years. But this one is:
- Cheap: 24.99$ in Amazon
- Light: 4.2 ounces (120 grams)
- Universal: it can charge any device that can be charged with an USB cable (my Blackberry, but also iPhones, iPods, cameras…)
Now I always have one in my bag. And it has saved me many times.
