This was my second writing conference, and I wanted to stay connected in case my daughter needed something. So, I stuffed my purse with portable chargers and wishful thinking, feeling certain that my fanatical planning was going to pay off. Much to my chagrin, both chargers died after the first use and finding an outlet near a chair was next to impossible. In fact, the only time I was able to charge my phone long enough to make a difference was while I slept which—thanks to my friends—was very little.
There is nothing more frustrating than your phone dying in the middle of an event, but for a mother, it’s downright scary. In a few weeks, I will be flying to Baltimore to attend another conference, only this time my daughter won’t be coming along for the ride. Though I know she will be in good hands, I still need to hear her voice on a daily basis, and the thought of it going straight to voicemail makes my blood boil. Imagine how excited I was when the folks at myCharge asked me to review their best selling charger: The HUB Max 9000mAh... Go ahead, twist my arm!
The HUB Max is a TSA approved device and small enough to store in your carry on luggage (note: you can throw into your purse once you leave the airport because it really is that small). It can also be used to charge tablets, GoPro's fitness watches, speakers and a slue of other must haves. In the age of technology, this is the perfect accessory for any mom on the go and this week, I will be giving one away for free. Yes, you heard me right; I said FREE!
Now, before you get all clickety-split with your fingertips to enter this awesome contest, please be aware that it is limited to UNITED STATES RESIDENTS ONLY. I know, I know... and I apologize in advance to my overseas friends, but I feel quite certain that there will be more opportunities down the road, so make sure you follow me everywhere. For those living the US who are interested in entering, the retail value of the HUB Max is $129.99 (which is a small price to pay for one that works). The only downside I found in this device is that the charging port didn’t fit into my LifeProof case, but anyone who has one of their cases already knows this is an issue that is easily resolved by ordering one of these (note: this adapter is designed for iPhone 6S/6S Plus, but they do make others).
If you don’t win, don’t freak out because you can still cash in on a HUB Max up at 40% off the retail value via the myCharge website for a limited time only using promo code MOM. Also, be sure you are following me on Facebook and Twitter as I will be announcing the lucky winner online in a few days. Good luck!
