Electrical devices, such as phones and tablets, are then plugged into the USB port on the charger to provide up to 11 hours of phone talk time.

Jodi Marks: There is nothing more frustrating than your phone running out of power in the middle of the day when you need it most. And if you’ve had that problem, too, then I think you can appreciate this solution to that problem.

This is myCharge by Transit. And, I’ll tell you what, this is a nifty little thing to have. Now, I’ve opened one up; and you can see just how small, thin, and portable this thing is. But it packs a lot of punch.

All you have to do is plug it in inside of a wall outlet; and once it’s charged, it’s ready to go. Now, the catch on this though is that you have to have a device that you’re charging that uses a USB port. That’s your smartphones, you can actually do a computer. But once you plug it in, it can charge your phone, and give you 11 hours’ worth of charge.

Now, let’s just say you forget to charge it up, and it’s in your backpack, purse, or briefcase and you’re on the go; all you have to do now is plug it into your car charger, and it will charge it up.

So, if your phone runs out of juice as much as mine does, then you might want to get one of these, because this is a nifty little thing to get.
