I know that you have probably had your phone run out of battery more than once. It’s happened to all of us at one time or another.
The solution has been to keep a spare charger and cable in our purses or briefcases and hope that we were near an outlet when the need arose. Or, we purchased external batteries that either were always in place or were just extra things to carry.
A new product will be released on October 30th that may be a great alternative to the dead battery issue.
The Nomad “Roadtrip” is small device that fits into the “cigarette” lighter port in your car. It charges itself when you drive. You can also plug your phone’s charger cord into it and charge your phone when you drive too. The cool feature of this device, is that when you leave your car, you can take this less than half pound unit with you and charge your phone no matter where you are through the use of it’s internal battery!
If you leave it in your car all of the time, it will always be ready to give your phone that extra shot of juice when you need it. No need to remember to charge this device if you leave it plugged into your car. Since most lighter ports are disabled when the engine isn’t running, there is little chance that it will run your car battery down.
It’s available for pre-orders now, but the price will go up after October 15th to nearly double what it is now. I suggest that you take a look now at http://www.hellonomad.com/products/roadtrip and see if this is something that will work for you.
