I have to admit it – I am guilty of letting my phone and iPad die on occasion. I always think I have enough juice to do what I’m doing until I get that flashing red warning that I need a power source asap! It’s one thing if I’m at home near a power source, but when I’m out and about I panic about not being able to use my phone! Thankfully, with IOGEAR’s Mobile Power Station, I don’t have to worry about running out of power when I’m on the go.

I received IOGEAR’s GearPower Mobile Power Station 4400 for smartphones and tablets (Susan G. Komen Edition) for review. It’s a sleek lightweight battery pack that once fully charged can breathe life into dying electronics when you’re away from home (or any other power source). It includes 5 charger tips and is designed to work with USB powered mobile devices (smartphones, cameras, tablets, MP3 players etc.). It also comes with a protective carry pouch and coiled USB charging cable, and it easy to throw in your purse, diaper bag, car console, etc. The unit chargers in a standard outlet or through your computer’s USB slot. Checking the battery life of the unit is as easy as pressing a small button on the front of the unit that displays its power level through a lit indicator. It’s great to have on hand at all times, especially if you use a lot of apps on your iPhone!

Now through August 31, 2012, for every battery unit sold, IOGEAR will donate $3.50 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. So you can feel good about making a difference when purchasing the battery! You can buy the battery online on the IOGEAR site for $49.95.
