It seems like no matter how much we plan ahead, the girls will go to play a game or I will attempt to send a text... and nothing. It's all fairly frustrating and, with our continued dependency on technology seeming to grow more and more, having gadgets uncharged is clearly not helpful.
While I've tried using a charger in the car or sitting next to an outlet when we're in the doctor's waiting room, neither of those are guaranteed to be possible (or convenient). Wouldn't it be great if you could magically just have portable power with you at all times? In the car, on an airplane, on a walk, in a meeting, during a power outage, in an emergency...
Now you can. Thanks to the iCarrier IMP120D from New Trent, charging nearly all of your devices is possible anytime, anywhere.
Compatible with a HUGE list of cell phones, tablets, portable game consoles, mp3 players, GPS, cameras and more, the New Trent iCarrier is just about the easiest way that I've seen to charge not one, but two, of your devices in an extremely short amount of time.
A tall order for an external battery? I was ready to find out.
Right away I appreciated the sleek, minimalistic look of the iCarrier and the fact that it came with its own AC adapter, a few cords to get you started, and a black velvet storage pouch.
Removing the pieces from the box, I paused as I realized that New Trent had designed the iCarrier to be intuitive and nearly foolproof to use.
Step 1: Simply plug it right in to the wall to charge...
...and it begins storing power immediately (it actually arrived partially charged, which I appreciated, but typically takes four hours to charge to full capacity).
Step 2: Charge away!
Using the two USB ports, you simply plug your gadgets of choice right in, press the iCarrier's power button, and the easy Low, Mid, High scale shows you how much power is left.
Voilà! The iCarrier IMP120D has the ability to charge your phones and tablets faster than any other brand of external battery, so it truly is a short amount of time before your battery is filled back up and ready to go. No more fretting that you can't make a call while you are out or that you won't be able to listen to music or watch a movie on your iPod while traveling!
As well as the charging speed, I love that the iCarrier doesn't just give a little "boost" of power, as I have seen from other portable chargers. For instance, whereas another product might give your iPhone 4s an extra two hours of talk time, the iCarrier can provide an estimated 45 additional hours!
As a final bonus, instead of one round of charging draining the entire iCarrier battery, this single device can be used to charge your items up to six times before it needs to be recharged itself!
I can't think of any reasons why someone would not have an iCarrier in their bag, car, on their desk and more. While it is a bit heavier than I expected it to be and too large to comfortably fit in a pocket or small purse, it can easily be stashed in a briefcase, backpack, tote bag, suitcase or more so that you are prepared to charge your devices on the go with ease.
On an upcoming trip that I am taking with both of my daughters, I am so glad knowing that I will have the iCarrier with me so that the girls can play on the iPhone and the iPad the entire flight without running out of juice! It's like magic in this high quality, dependable, dual port little bag!
The iCarrier IMP120D retails for $76.95 and can be purchased directly from Amazon so that you (or your recipient of this great gift) will never be at a loss for power again.
