Juiced Up: Battery Power is a Girl's BFF

It's all about battery power -- nothing's worse than failing power when you're mid-momentum.

Know what I can't live without? Yeah, baby, it's all about the battery power -- don't even try to tell me this isn't a beautygeek subject. We all know nothing's worse than sputtering-then-failing power when you're mid-momentum. GAH!

Say hello to my power-up buddy, the Duracell Instant Charger ($44.99 at mass and general retailers). I don't leave home without this little guy. Too many times I've forgotten to recharge my cel; this fella saves the day. A quick hook-up via USB cable between phone and battery, and I'm back in business.

The Instant Charger is as easy to re-power as it is to use. It comes with its own USB cord that connects to my laptop (yay MacBook Air for having two USB ports!); in no time at all it's ready for another go. This one takes my Samsung Galaxy from zero to about 70 per cent power in one session. That's usually more than enough to get the job done.

Still, I can't help jonesing for more power. I'm seriously attracted to the Duracell Instant Charger's friend, the Powerhouse. It can charge two devices at once.

Do you have one of these? Are you thinking 'bout it now?
