How to Charge Your iPhone

I would have liked to go to an event, but I had to stay home and charge my iPhone. Thankfully, there’s a new charger on the block, from the people at Griffin – the PowerBlock Reserve. I know you remember them, and the exceptional deals that they’ve given us recently. The response was so great that they’ve extended the offer! If you use coupon code pirillogo you’ll save 25% on your order!

I unboxed the PowerBlock Reserve prior to starting this video, and have already been using it. It’s pretty small, and there are two parts to it. Simply flip down the adapter and plug it into an electrical socket… and it charges the battery for your iPod or iPhone. Presto! You have juice. The idea is that you can take this with you on the go.

My suggestion is to place this next to the door that you use when leaving your house. Then you’ll always remember to grab it and take it with you. This way, your phone won’t be dead in the water if you’re gone all day. We know how important it is to have a working and fully charged battery.

It’s interesting… it doesn’t actually “click” into the iPhone. It has a magnet that snaps it in place, and it works very well. There’s a USB port on the bottom that allows you to attach the iPhone or iPod to it. Actually – you can charge ANY USB device with this!

If you do not yet have an external battery on your iPhone or iPod, what are you waiting for? You’ll save 25% on this excellent little device – and it works perfectly!

USB Charger for Airplanes

Okay, so it’s not exactly for airplanes – the Inflight USB Power Unit was designed for airline passengers. “Plug compatible with any standard USB charging cable. The Inflight USB Power unit plugs into the passenger seat audio jack and outputs regulated power to the attached USB charging cable/connector.” If only I could get every device manufacturer to let me charge by USB, I’d be in heaven. This is a must-have USB charging device. I play with my PSP on just about every flight, and it’s nice to know I could connect my iPod as well. Consider this sucker ordered and owned.
