PowerBags to the Rescue


Yesterday we reviewed the PowerBag Messenger, a messenger bag that carries a 6000mAh battery and has internal cabling that makes charging an iOS device, or one that has a mini or microUSB connection simple. Today I got home and shot a video of the backpack version of the PowerBag for the second part in the review. Little did I know how handy both bags would be just hours later.


You see, the October Surprise dumped a fair bit of snow on the ground today. That, combined with the fact that the trees still had leaves on them that caught more snow than usual, has resulted in downed trees and power outages. No power means no recharging devices.

Elana got home and told me her BlackBerry was dead. She asked if I had a charger. I pulled out both PowerBags, plugged in her phone, my iPhone and my iPad and we’ve been keeping all our devices fully charged.

Power… It’s in the bag. And it is quite handy too!!!
