Give the gift of safety and peace of mind


Oh no! The power is out and your smartphone just died. What do you do?

Are you done with your holiday shopping? I think we’re done. I’m just waiting on two things to arrive (hopefully by the end of the week). So far everything else we have is wrapped and under the tree (my kids are young adults, they know that mom and dad are really Santa).

Even if you done shopping, like I am, there is always room for a few extra gifts, as well as stocking stuffers.

Growing up, what was inside my stocking was often just as wonderful as the gifts under the tree. Inside my stocking was always candy (yum!), an apple and orange, small toys and my personal favorite – a new box of crayons.

If you are looking for a stocking stuffer idea, small gift, or even a gift for a “Secret Santa” exchange or a gift for someone else (hairdresser, neighbor, co-workers), why not give them the gift of peace of mind and security?

Some parts of the country experience crazy weather conditions – hurricanes, tornado, blizzards. There are plenty of opportunities for power outages – some lasting for days or even weeks.

I don’t know about you, but whenever we know a storm is coming, we make sure that all of our important devices, such as our cellphones and tables, are fully charged. We need our phone in case we need to call for help. And we like to have our tablets charged so we can watch movies that we downloaded or play games that don’t require the internet (in case that is down as well).

I personally feel that you can’t have enough charging devices. Most especially if you have a few people in your family. Trust me, if my kids’ phones die, they will go CRAZY. Their phones are their world and they are lost without them (sad to say).

My kids never remember to charge up their phones before a big storm, even if we constantly remind them . For that reason, we keep multiple devices to charge our phones just in case.

A great charging option to have on hand is the UnPlugged 10K charger. It’s from the brand MyCharge. We own a couple of MyCharge products, and we have always been pleased with the brand’s products. The UnPlugged 10K charger is no exception.

The UnPlugged 10K charger is a wireless charger for your phone and other devices. By wireless I mean that once fully charged, you can take it with you where ever you go – traveling, camping, hiking, work or just to have on hand in case your power goes out.

It has a very nice finish to it (I think I should mention that).

I keep this device fully charged (it holds a full charge for a very long time when not in use) just in case of emergencies (power outage). We have also taken it with us when we went to visit family in another state, as well as to the city. There is no charging port in the backseat (the cord won’t reach back there either) so we can use this device to charge their phones from the back of the car.

nd Samsung Fast Charge standard. It delivers up to 10 Watts of power. The 10 Watts of powers ensures the absolute quickest wireless charge on the market. It features a whopping 10,000mAh of charging power. 

What this means is that your device will charge quicker than other charging devices on the market.

To charge the MyCharge initially takes a while, but as a charging device, it does charge things pretty quickly. Not super sonic speed like my kids would like (ha ha), but certainly a lot quicker than other charging devices that we own.

There are lights on the device that let you know how much charge is left on the UnPlugged 10K charger. The blue light means it’s charging, and each of the other lights represent 25% of a charge (so two lit lights would equal a 50% charge).

A great feature about this portable charger is that you don’t need extra cords or cables. You can charge up your Apple or Samsung phone simply by placing it on top of the charger, providing that your device supports wireless charging.

If you use a phone case or have anything else on your phone, you’ll need to remove it first before you can charge it, otherwise it won’t work.

I have a case on my phone that is a pain in the neck to take off and put back on, so for that reason I use the “old fashioned” method of plugging my phone into the charger. My kids don’t use cases, so they just need to place their phones on top of it to charge their phones.

In addition to the wireless charging option, there are also two USB-A ports that can allow you to charge up to three devices at a time.

The charger comes with a plug that you can use to charge the charer, or you can use it to charge another device on the UnPlugged 10K charger. I like that it’s a short cord, so you don’t have to worry about it taking up much room in your bag, luggage or backpack.

The UnPlugged 10K charger is lightweight and very portable. It’s not much bigger than my iPhone 8.

This would not only make a great gift or stocking stuffer, but it’s also great to have on hand in case of emergencies, or if you like to have a backup power source “just in case.”
