In my post on techy gift ideas for this holiday season, I said I would post more recommendations here on my blog, through Black Friday.
To start, here is a gadget I have had for years. I’m on my second generation of the myCharge HubPlus, which is a 6700mAh portable lithium ion battery. What I love about this device is that it is a totally self-contained charge hub that will charge an iPhone up to four times!
What I like best about this portable battery is that the AC plug is integrating, meaning you just fold down the prongs and plug it into a standard AC outlet to recharge the batter. Also built-in are both a Lightning connector and a Micro-USB connector. This means I can recharge any of my battery powered devices from this device. My iPhone, iPad, Plantronics Bluetooth headset, Apple AirPods, etc. There is also a USB port built-in so any USB cable can be connected to the battery to recharge a device. This means even proprietary cables will work.
If you have a gadget person on your list, who is always looking for that nearby power or USB outlet, the myCharge Hub series of portable chargers will be an absolutely perfect gift for them. There are higher and lower capacity versions as well as one for USB-C.
