Holiday Gift Guide: Energizer 10 Watt USB Chargers {Review & Giveaway}

Energizer logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Matt Ferrell!}

Common conversations my husband and I have had around here go something like this:

I can't find my phone, can I use yours? You can... but I'm pretty sure it's dead.

Or:

Where's the iPad? I need it today. It's over there on the shelf, but the battery is probably dead.

Are you picking up on the pattern? I don't know how many times I've reached for one of our electronics and found it without a charged battery or realized I was going to be leaving the house soon and tried to quickly plug in my phone to give it a tiny bit of juice before grabbing it and heading out. It's all fairly frustrating because with our continued dependency on technology, having them uncharged is clearly not helpful.

Instead, Energizer has now made it completely easy to keep all of our devices charged and ready to go with the introduction of their new Energizer 10 Watt USB Chargers.

Energizer USB chargersWhether you need to charge your gadgets at home or on-the-go, the new Energizer 10 watt USB chargers will keep your favorite Apple devices (including the iPod, iPhone and iPad) all charged with one small charger.

Even better, these chargers will power other USB-charged devices including smartphones, MP3 Players, and GPS devices with the addition of an existing USB cable or one of the new Energizer Micro and Mini USB Cables. It really couldn't be much easier... or more convenient!

When the 10W USB Car Charger and Cable arrived with a set of the Micro and Mini USB Charging Cables, I was thrilled just thinking about not having to worry about heading out on the road with an uncharged device again.

Energizer 10W Car ChargerPulling the Car Charger out of the box, I was shocked to find that it was much smaller than I had expected.

Around the size of a tube of lip balm, I marveled at the way that Energizer had made it possible to turn any auto DC outlet into a charging station with something quite so small and unobtrusive.

What a great charger! I love the way that the slim design sits nearly flush with my van's DC outlet because who wants a large, bulky charger that has to be pushed out of the way? This can either stay put or get tossed in the glove compartment with no problem!

When it comes to putting this compact charger to use, it is completely foolproof! Either plug in the included Apple certified dock connector USB cable and attach one of your Apple products...

...or use the Micro and Mini USB Charging Cables (one is Mini USB to USB and the other is Micro USB to USB) to power up your phone, tablet, camera or more while you're driving.

Whether you're taking a short jaunt around town and want to make sure you'll be able to access your phone or whether you're taking a cross-country road trip and you want to hand over the iPad so that your child can entertain themselves, now you won't have to worry about running out of battery!

Retailing for $24.99 (or less on Amazon), the Energizer 10W USB Car Charger and Cable has proven to be convenient and extremely portable. Due to its small size, you can easily stick it in a pocket, purse or bag so that you have it whenever and wherever you need it.

Or, if you'd rather charge by USB right from home or while traveling, the 10W USB Wall Charger and Cable (which also retails for $24.99... or less on Amazon) has the same easy-to-use principles but in a compact, fold-down design so that you can always have it ready when you need it.

For anyone who is on-the-go in your life, either of these chargers would make the perfect stocking stuffers! Just add in the Micro and Mini USB Charging Cables (retailing for $9.99) and your recipient will be set with an innovative solution to keeping all of their devices charged and ready to go.

And, thanks to the generosity of Energizer, one person will be able to harness the power of the USB themselves, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of Energizer 10W USB Car
or Wall Charger as well as the Micro/Mini USB Cables
to charge their other devices!
