Have you ever wished that you had a battery backup for your phone? After losing power at home on a number of occasions last winter due to snowstorms, I decided to invest in a rechargeable battery that I could use for my cell phone.
I selected the myCharge Summit 3000 because I liked the integrated cables, fold down AC adapter, and USB charging capability. It’s also small enough at 4.9 x 3 x 0.8 inches that I can travel with it when needed. This is a versatile product and reasonably priced at around $40.00.
