Motorola Power Pack Slim 4000
Are you reading this on your Samsung Galaxy device? Maybe an Apple product? How much life is left in your battery? It’s something we always consider. Weather you’re on a trip, or at the office, we need our devices to keep working. Regardless of how technologically advanced we are, it’s all dependent on power. It’s a common problem, and now Motorola has offered a sensible solution. The Motorola Power Pack Slim 4000.
It’s a little power pack that is roughly the same size as my phone. I got mine just in time for my vacation to Colorado last week. I fully charged it before we left. Over the next three days in the Rocky Mountains, it charged my Galaxy S5, my wife’s Galaxy tablet, and my daughter’s iPhone before finally running out of juice. It does seem to take longer than being plugged into a wall outlet, but when you’re on the side of a mountain, in the middle of nowhere, how can you complain? A mini USB charging cable can be pulled from the power pack to charge most smartphones. It also features a full size USB port on the side, which means it’s compatible almost any tablet as well.
This would be great for attending meetings too (my brother-in-law travels weekly and tried to buy it from me the day I got it). Data is a battery killer and so is tethering, both of which I use a lot. We have three tablets in our household, and none of them have a data plan so I also use my hotspot frequently, which also uses lots of power. This is perfect for that as well. The P4000 really packs a big punch for such a small size. Personally, my favorite feature is the ability to charge two devices at the same time. It’s also nice to have the four small LED lights on top, so you always know how much time you have left. If this sounds nice to you, head over to Verizon and check one out. You won’t be disappointed!
