This afternoon, when I was driving the kids to various activities, I noticed that my Blackberry was on low battery, as usual. After losing my car charger sometime in the past few months, I never bothered to purchase a new one. I don’t like when I’m in the car and don’t have a charged phone (especially while I am babysitting) because I get paranoid that something will happen and I won’t be able to get in touch with anyone. I also have a tendency to drive on an empty gas tank—you’d think I’d learn after I once broke down on a highway exit in Virginia when I was 16 years old—so I clearly need to keep my Blackberry charged at all times.
Just when I was making a mental note to buy another cellphone car charger to go along with the ones I already have for my iPod and camera, I remembered that I acquired a unique car charger from my sister. The coolest thing about the Powercup is that it looks like a coffee cup and fits perfectly into a cup holder. Like other chargers, it plugs into a cigarette lighter receptacle, but also has three electrical outlets, so you don’t need a special charger for each device. Maybe I can start blow drying my hair in the car….
Kidding. Sort of.
I will definitely be using the Powercup in the future!
What is the status of your cell phone? Always charged, or always dead?
Do you drive on an empty gas tank?
