If asked which region of the state is marketed as “Wisconsin’s Shopping Place,” my first guess probably wouldn’t have been the Fox Cities. Once there, I quickly realized my preconceived notions were way off base. …

Product Review – iGo Charge Anywhere

Submitted by on May 10, 2012 – 6:00 am One Comment

Like many others with cell phones, I occasionally have to deal with a low phone battery when I’m out and about. However, if I’m in my car, I have no problem; I just plug my phone into my car charger, and I’m good. Trouble arises, though, when I’m on the move in other ways than my car. At the airport, traveling in a vehicle not my own or even walking about town. Even if I had my wall charger with me, finding a place to plug in presents a challenge of its own. That’s when I’m grateful for my new iGo Charge Anywhere charger.

About the size of a credit card (and not much thicker!), my iGo charger provides a full charge to my phone in about an hour. Thanks to its small size and light weight, I can tuck the iGo and connection cord into my purse, tote or even my pocket, and my cell phone and I can hit the road without worry of a dead battery.

To use the iGo, you simply plug it into a wall outlet so it can fully charge. This takes a few hours, so I usually charge it at night so it’s fully charged when I’m ready to head out the next day. While the iGo is plugged into the wall, you also can plug in your cell phone to charge so you don’t have to bring your regular phone charger with you, cutting down on extra cords and gadgets when traveling. The iGo Charge Anywhere model also has two outlets, so you can charge two phones (or other electronic devices provided you have the appropriate iGo charging tip) at the same time.

Plus, the charging cord is long enough to use the phone without pulling out the iGo, too. For instance, on a recent trip to Knoxville, Tenn., as I walked around downtown, I plugged my phone into the iGo. I dropped the iGo into my tote, but continued to use my phone as it was charging without the hassle of holding a second device.

All in all, the iGo has made traveling for me much easier and convenient. I don’t worry about my cell phone going dead, and I’m not bogged down by extra cords and devices. If you’re looking for a lightweight, easy-to-use charger for your cell phone, I definitely recommend the iGo. I’ll never leave home without mine again.
