Power me up!

11 Feb

Resurgence by OtterboxThe big downfall of an iPhone, and basically every smart phones, is the battery life. It’s built to last … But it’s never enough …
We use our phone for everything nowadays, from GPS direction in the car or while walking, to listen to our favorite music, to play or work on presentations … Basically this thing we have in our hands almost 24/7 is meant to be hungry for energy.

I have an external battery that works perfectly to power me through the day and even more (the Sherpa50 by GoalZero) but sometimes I can’t carry it with me because it’s big and I’m wearing my girlie outfit that matches my girlie purse … I have to dress up

I found the case that allies military standard protection of the phone and also a rechargeable battery (2000 mAh): the brand new Resurgence cover made by Otterbox!

Otterbox is well known in the protection field of our beloved phones and now enters the world of extra power!

The brand Mophie was the first to capture this market and already offers 3 battery cases for iPhone 5/5s.
. The juice pack helium 1500mAh protective case (up to 80% extra battery life) for $79,95
. The juice pack air 1700mAh (up to 100% extra battery life) for $99,95
. And the juice pack plus 2100mAh (up to 120% extra battery life) for $119,95.
Power is cool, but not at the price of putting my phone at danger when it falls (because it happens).

The Otterbox Resurgence is supposed to solve 2 problems with one case: a high level of protection and extra power at the same time ($99,95).

Resurgence by OtterboxThe Resurgence case is not just a case, it’s a military grade two-piece protection that will protect your phone from heavy falls with a 2000mAh extra battery.

The 4 LEDs on the front of the case show the power status by 25% increments.
The Resurgence comes in 4 colours: black, glacier, teal shimmer and satin rose. I went for the teal shimmer.

ChaseIT because
. It’s a real relieve to have an extra battery when you need juice and don’t want to carry a charger or an extra battery.
. I love it because the Resurgence brings top protection against unexpected fall of the phone …
. And also because for once you can choose colours and not just black

Resurgence by OtterboxThe only downside is the fact that the cable is not the same as the iPhone so now I need to carry 2 cables with me … And that’s a pain. Maybe I’m too picky … But I forgot it home again this morning …

For our info, the iPhone 5 comes with a rechargeable battery of 1440mAh.

Back to school, on the smart side

Vacations are over, we had fun on the beach, BBQ everyday, made new friends, discovered new places… Basically we enjoyed our time off before the rat race starts again.
As we didn’t win the Powerball, we have to go back to the office and we better be ready.
Here’s what I always have with me to face the worst.

. Extra battery for my iPhone, iPad and computer, the Sherpa 50 by GoalZero (powered by a solar panel!!)
. Jump Cable by Native Union, giving you a 30% boost and serving a a charging cable too
. Klean Kanteen bottle, to cut on using plastic
. Nunn tabs to stay hydrated during the work day
. Luminox watch, the brand of the Navy Seals (I switched to the textile bracelet to have it a bit funkier)
. A Bluetooth earpiece, the New Era by Jawbone (4 hours autonomy, super light)
. Tile, a bluetooth tag that helps me not to forget my stuff behind (in this case my wallet)
. Shine by Misfit to track my daily and night activity
. And my beloved Biscuit skate by Hamboards to land-surf to the office and back home (still practicing).
Have fun, work well and the next vacations are around the corner!
