CES Swag Giveaway: USB Backup Battery

Have you ever had the battery on your gadget  run down while you’re far way from  charger? That’s what this is for.

Radio Shack was giving these out like candy. This model comes with  number of tips including the usual USB as well as Apple’s 30 pin connector. It was charged but not used. I had my own battery pack with me.

I’m having trouble finding  product listing, but it is similar to this one:



  • This raffle runs until tomorrow night.
  • You can enter by leaving  comment. (Email subscribers will need to come visit the site.)
  • I will randomly pick the winner tomorrow and pay for shipping.
  • US only, sorry.

    This sounds awesome, my evo dies all the time with no back up, I’m usually in trouble. I LOVE this BLOG! I read it everyday! Thanks Nate!

    Borders had a similar device which retailed for $40 but I picked a few up for $15. It didn’t have all the connectors though.

    I’m in!

  16. Andrew25 January, 2012

    I could use this when traveling!

  17. Fritz Goebel25 January, 2012

    I could use this; my Nook Color with n2a android card drains the battery very quickly no matter which I boot into.

    This is my comment. There are many just like it, but this one is mine.

  19. Steve25 January, 2012
