"DUN Dun dun". Three soft chimes can elevate my heart rate in seconds. If you're tech-obsessed like me, you know the feeling.
Subtler than an alarm clock blare but equally stress-inducing, the iPhone low battery notification is a dreaded noise for all college gals. It always comes at the worst possible moment - when you're typing an "I'm going to be late" text to your friend, almost done with your email requesting an extension on that paper, or worse, mid-conversation with your boss. UGH!
Want to rid yourself of those dreaded chimes for good? I've found the ultimate solution. The best part? You can win this college-life-saving device for FREE! Read on for the details.
Introducing: The PERI GoCharge
The folks at PERI recently sent me their new Gold GoCharge ($49.99), a 3200mAh power bank with an integrated Lightning cable for easy, on-the-go charging of the iPhone. The power bank can fully charge the iPhone on average 1.5 times on a single charge and the integrated lightning cable eliminates the need to carry additional cables - just throw it in your bag and go.
I had never used a power bank before so I was eager to try it. It took 3 hours to charge up the GoCharge, but after that, it was ready to go.
My phone always dies when I'm out on the town, so I chose a night out to test the GoCharge. I loved that it fit in my clutch, and that it matched my phone - two points to Gryffindor! When it was time to uber home and my phone battery was super low, I plugged into the GoCharge and was back in business. This is definitely my new handbag must-have.
PERI GoCharge Size Comparisons
For an idea of how small and thin the GoCharge is, here are some photos compared to my iPhone 6:
Basically, if your phone fits in your bag, the GoCharge will fit, too.
