When you think of batteries, you probably think about Energizer. They invented the first dry cell battery back in 1890, and they've been "going and going" ever since!
But these days, most electronics people use contain internal rechargable batteries. And that's really a double edged sword. In the old days, if your 35mm camera batteries died, you could simply hit up a convenience store and pick up a pack of AA batteries. But if your digital camera dies, you've got to find someplace to plug in your device, assuming you've got your power cord with you!
I can't tell you how many times I've forgotten my iPhone's power cable when traveling. Many high-end hotels carry extra power cables that they'll sell you.. For a grossly overinflated fee!
Now you don't have to worry. Turn your outlet into a charging station with the Energizer USB Combo Pack, available at Sam's Club locations around the country.
The combo pack I got included a wall charger, a car charger, and an Apple dock connector to USB cable. With this pack, I can now charge my Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, etc) in my car, in my hotel room, etc. Now, I no longer have to worry about forgetting to bring my charger with me, as I leave this combo pack in my backpack at all times!
Even better, the Energizer USB chargers are universal, meaning that they'll charge any USB device you own – Digital camera, MP3 player, whatever. Simply plug your device's USB cable into the wall or car charger, and you're all set.
If you have a lot of devices that need charging, consider Energizer's USB dual chargers, which allow you to charge two devices at once. (Each port supplies 0.75 Amps of power when both ports are used simultaneously) This is a genius idea, and I wonder why no one came up with this sooner!
I walked away really impressed with the Energizer USB Combo Pack, and I definitely encourage you to pick one up the next time you're at Sam's Club.
