UPDATE [2013-07-31]: I have withdrawn my recommendation for No More Rack, and I discourage you from patronizing them.
It’s rare for me to be so pleased with a particular merchant that I feel compelled to rave about them on my blog, and even rarer for me to feel that way about a particular product, but now is one of those times.
I recently spend more than $20 on a flash charger from CVS, which (a) turned out to hold only 500mAh of power, which is a pittance, and (b) worse, turned out not to be able to hold a charge for more than a few days when not in use. This was obviously not acceptable!
Then I saw an ad in my Facebook feed (yeah, I know they’re incredibly annoying, but surprise! sometimes they actually advertise things you want) for a 2600mAh flash charger from No More Rack. I bought it, and I just had the opportunity to use it for the first time, and boy, does it deliver the goods.
I was on a five-hour bus ride from NYC to Boston (traffic! ugh) and the charging outlets weren’t working. I was down to less than 30% charge left on my phone. I had nothing else to occupy myself, and there was no way the phone was going to make it all the way to Boston with constant use. I whipped out the flash charger, and it was able to bring the charge on my phone up to more than 90% while I was streaming Netflix. That’s a lot of power in a little device.
Seriously, if you’re ever on the road worrying about if your phone or tablet battery is going to make it, and you don’t want to lug around a big charging brick, this is the deal for you. And it’s a great deal! You won’t find a comparable charger for less anywhere else.
If you’re interested, go to No More Rack and search for “2600mAh Flash charger” to find it.
