One of my kiddos has been searching for an affordable backup charger for her iPod… something about the tragedy of running out of music on the bus home, I think. I’m not sure. Anyway, all we could find at Target and the like were super-expensive USB units that cost $50+ and had mixed reviews online.
Well, here’s an easy (and cheap) solution: Right now Amazon has this Innovative Digital USB Cell Phone Emergency Charger for just $12.50 (its lowest price ever), and it runs on a couple of AA batteries and works with pretty much anything you can plug into a USB cord.
The reviews are good, and the price is certainly right. Whether you’re keeping a teenager in tunes or just wanting an addition to your emergency kit, this is probably worth grabbing.
