IOGEAR Mobile Power Station Keeps Me Going… and Going (Review) #ngfamily

IOGEAR Mobile Power Station

IOGEAR Mobile Power Station

Earlier this month, J and I headed off to the Big Apple to attend BlogHer ’12. One of our biggest concerns was keeping all of our devices charged. He had his iPhone with him. I had my phone, my camera, and my iPad. Yes, we depend on our technology. Especially when we travel.

I was on the hunt for a portable solution that I could carry in my purse with me. My phone loses its charge fairly quickly when I’m using the camera a lot. I planned on using the camera a lot in New York City! This is the reason that I needed the IOGEAR Mobile Power Station 4400!

J had a similar product he’d purchased a few months ago. It worked well for my phone but not much else. I had an iPad to keep rolling at BlogHer since I didn’t take my laptop. I needed a good way to stay connected since I’m not in love with my phone. I was thrilled because the IOGEAR GearPower Mobile Power Station comes with 5 different adapters.

The battery pack is designed to work USB devices. So I’m able to plug my iPad into it using the cord that came with the iPad. I’m able to charge my Android phone using one of the adapters that came with the IOGEAR charger or the cord that came with the phone. I love the versatility!

The PowerGear pack charged quickly when plugged into J’s desktop computer as well as my laptop. It also charged well when plugged into the wall while we were in NYC! We would charge it overnight so I could carry it with me during the day! My phone never ran out of charge so I was able to snap pics all day and all night long!

Power Up with IOGEAR Mobile Power Station

Stay Charged and Power Up

It’s simple to check the charge in your Mobile Power Station by checking the lighted indicator on the front of the unit. I always knew when I needed to recharge. But I could charge my phone and then my iPad (which was at about 60% charged) before I needed to plug it in again.

The bottom line? the IOGEAR Mobile Power Station was a lifesaver for our trip to NYC! It helped me stay connected and up to date with all of my social media accounts. It will be going on another trip with me next month! I’ll be headed to the West Coast this time and love that I can count on this convenient battery pack!

I was honored to review the Susan G. Komen version of the battery. And from now through the end of August, IOGEAR will donate $3.50 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for each unit that is sold. You can get a great mobile power station for yourself and donate to a great cause at the same time! The IOGEAR Mobile Power Station 4400 is available for $39.95 on their website.

You can learn more on the IOGEAR Facebook page and on Twitter @IOGEAR.

How do you stay charged when traveling?

  1. This thing seems awesome. I could definitely use one as well. It would have come in handy with my trips to college and back home last year.

  4. great device…would be great to have for traveling!

  5. I learned recently how crappy it is to be without a back up battery!! This would be put well to use and I love that it supports Breast Cancer Research!

  7. Jennifer Mae Hiles says:

    That looks like a very handy device to have around! I have not seen/heard of this beforel

  8. Mike Davis says:

    Wow! what handy gadget– now I could see having this with all the phones, and camera, amd the ipad, and the kindle,it could be a real life saver to keep anyone going.

  9. Jenny Stanek says:

    Oh wow, this would truly be a god-send. My husband and I both have Iphones and they lose charge within a couple hours. When you’re out, you can’t just go plug it in somewhere or charge it in the car. This would be WONDERFUL

  10. My husband and I could both definitely use this. Our smartphones are old and our battery power never holds, it’d be nice to keep this in the car to grab and go.

  11. We lose charge in our phones SO quickly thanks to crappy service in our area…too much time spent searching for signal. It’s awesome that this comes with so many adaptors, too! I hate having to get a different “special” charger for each device and make sure we’ve got them all packed if we go on a trip.

  12. Oh wow I wish I had one of these! I’m always low in battery life.

  13. Alexandra Pitcher says:

    My husband would love this; he is always on the go working two jobs and charging his phone is sometimes at the end of his priority list; what a great product!

  14. This is so neat – it would solve my problem of my battery running out on my by the end of the day!

  15. With three phones in the house this would be invaluable

  16. Melissa Stoneback-Tuttle says:

    I definitely need to have this. We make long trips every other month from Pennsylvania to Canada and vice versa and my phone is always dying cause I listen to music on it. It’s hard to charge it in the car when we have the GPS hooked up. This would work wonders.

  17. This would be awesome!! My husband and I would probably fight over it. LOL!

  18. Mary Dailey says:

    Everyone needs this! Great for trips, too!

  19. Seyma Shabbir says:

    This is a great idea. I find myself having to charge everything all the time and we just don’t always have enough outlets!

  20. sheila musselman askins says:

    looks like an awesome product! i am always searching for outlets to charge my phone..and this would come in so handy when traveling! thanks!

  21. bill elliott says:

    Great item, looking forward to trying one

  22. I love this idea! And I love how quickly it charged up for you! This would be great for my upcoming trips. My phone always dies when I’m on vacation because I take so many pictures.

  23. Jennifer Young says:

    I would love this! My husband and I both have iphones and I just recently got a tablet! This would help a lot!

  24. this is cool

  25. hubby would love this for his ipod touch!

  26. amy williams says:

    this is great we always have more than one thing we have to charge when we are away from the house.

  27. This is just what we need to get us powered up while on the run
