This, my friends, is an absolute lifesaver.
Now, I know that this gadget is "old news" considering J. Crew came out with some external iPhone batteries over the holidays. However, I read a lot of reviews on battery chargers and came out with this one from Restoration Hardware. While, a bit pricier than J. Crew's, and a lot less cute, this delivers and with no issues at all.
It's small and sleek but has some weight to it. The weight isn't a downside, it actually feels like a quality product. The short little cable is how you recharge it. This has saved me on several occasions. This is especially good for those who travel or are on their iPhone's a lot with nowhere to power-up.
This is another necessity, in my opinion. I ordered the pink cable from Amazon. The cord is extra long so I can actually use my phone while it is charging. The monogram plug is something that I got for Christmas and I think it is just the cutest!
Remember my post about Gemvelopeshttp://summerwind41490.blogspot.com/2011/08/packing-your-jewels-gemvelopes.html from a year or so ago? Well, it comes into play because it is not only great for storing jewelry, but it is fabulous for cord storage purpose. It has a built in pocket that I put my ear buds in and then the other two cords fit in perfect on top. Plus, the bright pink and green really pops in my purse! I usually carry these cables daily... I only really take my iPad charger if I am going on a trip.
What accessories for your iPhone/iPad do you love? Have a fabulous day!
