I think most of us know the heartache of Dead Battery Syndrome.  My iphone has become such a lifeline and important part of my life keeping me connected to friends and family and allows me to work while I’m away from home.

So my biggest fear is having my phone die when I’m out and about.  When I travel, I have the biggest anxiety about seeing the dreaded 10% battery warning!  You can always carry a charger cord in your purse or car, but lets face it – if you are lucky enough to find an outlet while your out, you usually can’t sit by it while your phone charges for an hour or more.

So I’m a HUGE fanatic about keeping a car charger in my car and a portable charger in my purse!

Portable Branded Charges from Powerstick  TidyMom

I recently had the chance to try out the PowerTrip and PowerStick+, just in time for my recent trip to Austin for BlogHer Food for Whirlpool.

One of the really cool things about these chargers is than can be branded with your logo or favorite photo!

The PowerTrip Charger:

This  charger looks like a white plastic brick, and is about the size of a deck of cards and it’s the cream of the portable chargers crop!  This charger can be charged from three different sources: a wall outlet, a computer’s USB jack or ….and I love this one……. the sun.  That’s right! there is a solar panel on the back for topping off the charge.

The PowerTrip has a huge backup battery: 6,000 milliamps, enough to recharge an iPad once or a smartphone three times. This comes in REALLY handy if you have friends or family with you who are jealous when they find out you just charged your phone while riding a roller coaster and their phone is about to die 😉 

This charge also doubles as a flash drive, with four, eight or 16 gigabytes of storage!  Just a nice little added bonus.

The PowerTrip is super easy to use and has a handy little gauge on the side shows you how much charge remains in the gizmo.

It comes with three cords of its own — the traditional Apple 30-pin connector, mini-USB and micro-USB . Since I have the iPhone 5, I just use the cord that came with my phone.

The PowerTrip is a little pricier than most chargers, starting at $99 – but it does SO much more than most chargers and it’s WAY worth it, in my opinion! Buy the PowerTrip


If you’re not a fan of carrying around a larger more heavy charger, or want to keep the cost down, then the PowerStick+ is for you!!

The PowerStick+ is the only portable power charger that features flash memory ranging in capacities from 4GB to 16GB. So, like the PowerTrip, you can take advantage of this technology to transfer images and files to the PowerStick+ charger.

You charge the PowerStick+ by simply popping it into your USB port and let it charge up. A fuel gauge lets you monitor its progress. Then connect the Powerstick+ to virtually any portable device – and it transfers the charge while allowing you to use that device even as it’s being charged. The PowerStick+ comes with three connectors: micro-USB, mini-USB and Apple 32-pin. For iPhone 5 users, the PowerStick+ represents an immediate charging solution. 

Buy The PowerStick+ (starting  at $69)

You will quickly realize you can’t leave home without one of these chargers and they make great gifts, especially branded with a logo or picture….. since everyone needs one and hardly anyone has them.  


With vacation time here, it’s the perfect time to make sure you have a portable charger in your arsenal!  The good people at would like to give one lucky TidyMom reader a PowerTrip Charger with 4GB of flash memory branded with your favorite photo or logo!! That’s a $109 value and will be worth it’s weight in gold!!
