Travel Gear Tuesday – Mophie

One piece of gear that has saved me over and over again is what I consider to be my lifeline for my cell phone. I have an iPhone 3GS (holding out for iPhone 5!) and use a Mophie Juice Pack to re-charge my cell phone on long trips and long days.

Some posts on this site contain affiliate links, meaning if you book or buy something through one of these links, I may earn a small commission (at no extra cost to you!). Opinions are always my own and I’ll never promote something I don’t use or believe in.

Since the days of my Mophie (I have the one in the photo) they have come up with sleeker designs with a thinner form factor, but for me it is the functionality that provides the magic.

I have used it on long-haul flights and cross-coast domestic flights. Once my iPhone battery is dead this powerful piece of gear re-charges my phone completely (and most times more!). It is easy to use, I charge it up using a USB and once it is full, I carry it in my carry-on (or my purse) so that I can slide my phone into it when needed.

This little gem has also saved me when I am at tradeshows, blogging conferences and other long days with long meetings when I can’t get to a charger and I highly recommend it!

How about you? Do you have a cell phone accessory that you can’t live without?

    Never heard of this before, but it certainly would have come in handy when I was using my iPhone in France! I’m holding out for the iPhone 5 as well–so maybe I’ll buy one of these too!

      @Christine, it is really great. I hope I make it until the 5, my 3 if dying, the last 4-5 days it has started crashing constantly!

    I don’t have any cool gadgets, but if I splurge that will be the one. How fabulous and great color. I love your practical tips and wonderful little tidbits.

      @Walker, thanks! Seriously, if I could only buy one gadget this would be it!

    Cool tip…I will buy one after I get the iPhone 5 — I have a small charger that my cousin got me in Japan, but it only charges enough to make a couple calls when your phone is dead..
