Throwback Thursday: Halo Portable Battery Chargers (Link up too!) #tbt

 Halo Portable Battery Pack and Charger- My Life: A Work in Progress

I always want to come back and update product reviews months later, but life often gets in the way. Personally, when I’m researching a product I like to know how it’s performing after a long period of time. Bloggers often test a product for a couple or few weeks before reviewing it on their blogs. It’s the nature of the business. Companies understandably want a quick turn around.

Earlier this week, my sister-in-law, my two nephews, and my mother-in-law went along with me, Little J, and Hubby on a day trip to DC. Near the end of our visit, we stopped near some of the Smithsonian museums for a quick break. My SIL sat down on a low wall, and when I realized she’d pulled out a Halo Portable Battery Charger, it seemed too good of an opportunity to snap a photo and blog about it!

Electronics can’t replace love or human interaction, but they can often make life easier. The Halo company sent me several of their products last fall to review, including their stylish flashlights, the scanner mouse (which was a surprisingly popular post!), and their pocket power charger model 2800. The charger my sister-in-law is pictured with in this post is like the 2800 but a little bigger. It’s the Halo Pocket Power 5500, and it may not fit into your pocket as well, but it has more charging capabilities than the 2800. I handed out several of the 5500s to friends and family for their honest opinions. One has even been able to charge her iPad with it! She did say that it took a lot longer to charge an iPad than a cell phone (hours longer).

So how have our pocket power chargers been doing? Fantastic! We’ve used them on trips like this when we’re away from electrical outlets. We’ve used our chargers in airports when all the plugs at the charging station are being used (you know what I’m talking about). It’s easy to slip one in my purse or the diaper bag. In this digital age, I highly recommend that everyone invest in a portable battery charger.

Do you have a portable battery charger?

  1. I so need a portable battery charger. I have been thinking about investing for some time now, and this halo seems like a pretty good value. I have the smaller battery rechargers, but I need a portable, and soon.

  2. The Halo Pocket Power 5500 sounds great, definitely something I could use! My iPhone battery is terrible and I always have to carry a charger with me.

  3. I could definitely use one of these. We use the geocaching app on our smart phone and it drains the battery so quickly. We never have enough charge on our phone to go the whole day. I will have to look into getting one of these.

  4. Not sure it can replace love but human interaction, definitely. I can’t even think of how many times I’ve felt nervous about not having enough charge on my phone. A backup would definitely be great to have!

  5. I have heard a lot about portable battery chargers lately! Seems that I have to get one as my phone rans out of battery constantly.
