Everywhere we turn, there are ads. As I was catching up on my friends recently on Facebook, I saw an ad for a gadget I thought was really ingenious. It combined an adjustable stand for phones and tablets with a battery pack for delivering juice via USB. I’d not seen such a combination and I certainly hadn’t heard of the company advertising the device.
Amazon is my go to store for items like this, so I did a quick search and found something very similar if not the exact same device. The best part is that it was half the price of what I had seen advertised.
If you can’t quite picture the gadget described, a photo is below showing an iPhone on the stand. It isn’t limited to Apple products, it works with any phone.
Thanks to the various adjustments of the stand (as seen below), it also works great with most any brand of tablet. Not crazy about red? It is also available in blue, gold and silver.
Within the stand is a 10000mAh battery with two USB ports, one at 2amps and the other at 1amp. So you phone/tablet can be plugged in sitting on the stand and another device can also be plugged in. Clearly the battery will drain faster with two devices connected. The battery is charged via a microUSB connector, the same connector on many other devices. It is currently selling for $29.99 at Amazon and you still have time to get one (or more) to stuff in stockings.
