TECH REVIEW: myCharge Energy Shot

 

As a social media manager and new media journalist, I rely heavily on my cellphone. At events, for example, I use my phone to get the job done, live tweeting, posting on Instagram, updating Facebook pages etc. so when the juice runs out of my phone I am in a bind. I have found myself searching madly for an electric outlet in which I can charge my phone. Once it’s plugged in, you’d think my problem would be solved, but then I have to wait a long time. Time during which I could be taking notes, snapping pics and posting to social. I’ve gotten into this jam too many times that my social tool box now means carrying 2 phones or at least an extra mobile device, which I can use while my phone charges.

Enter the myCharge Energy Shot, a portable charging device. (I thought it was clever how the device is packaged like one of those x hour energy drink shots.)

Charge your phone on the go.

The Energy Shot is a bit bigger in size than a tube of lipstick. It is small and convenient enough to stick into your pocket or purse.

It’s been such a lifesaver for me! I’ve been able to charge my device on the go, that is as long as remember to charge the Energy Shot itself the night before. From my experience, I’ve been able to fully charge two cellphones with one charged up Energy Shot.
The myCharge Energy Shot, a portable battery pack designed to charge electronic devices, is 25% more efficient than standard charging methods. It features a full size female USB Port, LED indicator light, and handy size. Available for $19.99 on the myCharge website, the Energy Shot is definitely worth it and is now part of my social media manager toolbox.
