myCharge RazorPlus: Power Any Time

myCharge power bankOne of the most frustrating things for me as a travel writer is not being able to find somewhere convenient to charge my phone. That’s especially true in airports where it seems like even when they offer charging stations, they’re filled with people charging their power-hungry Smartphones. Now it doesn’t matter because I’m carrying the myCharge RazorPlus, a powerful portable power bank that lets me charge on the go.

This portable phone bank will charge any USB-enabled device.

The slim little myCharge Razor Plus will charge cell phones or other USB-enabled devices, including Apple® iPhone® 3, 4, 4S, 5, 5c and 5s and most Samsung, LG, Nokia and BlackBerry models. With its sturdy yet lightweight Anodized-aluminum exterior, it’s small and light enough–only .22 lbs) to carry in my purse, backpack, or photo bag. The powerful 3000 mAh battery provides multiple charges quickly through the device’s USB port. In fact, the myCharge RazorPlus charges my phone faster than plugging it into an outlet.

myCharge Razor Plus comes with a re-charge cord, but no phone cords.

One disappointment is the RazorPlus does not come with cables to various phones. (That makes sense, of course, since different phones require different cables.) The myRazor worked perfectly with my flip phone’s charging cord. However, I didn’t have a cord for my Apple phone so I’ll have to go out and buy a separate cable for charging that phone.

myCharge recharges quickly by connecting it to a USB port of a computer.

The RazorPlus power bank hangs onto its charge through multiple cell phone re-charges. To find out if the RazorPlus needs re-charging, you simply shake the device and it shows the remaining battery level. When it needs recharging, plug it into your computer with the included recharge cable and before you know it, you’re up and running.

The myCharge RazorPlus is fast, convenient and it’ll keep me from wandering through airports trying to find a plug. Thanks RazorPlus. – by Bobbie Hasselbring, Editor
