The Best Kept Secret Accessory for Smartphones and Tablets

There is a very simple solution to this. The are called a variety of terms, "battery banks" or "power on the go". The bottom line is, you charge them when you are near an outlet and they store the power until you need it. Then you plug your wireless device into it. It's really quite genius and so many people have no idea they exist! They are definitely a best kept secret (that I really want EVERYONE to know about) in the wireless industry. These are a great gift idea for that person you know that has everything...Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduation, Birthday, and naturally Christmas/Hannakah!
