Hi friends! Welcome to this installment of Technology Tuesday! Recently, we’ve talked about one of our favorite apps Postagram, we shared tips on how to take better pictures with your phone and talked about our favorite phone charger, the New Trent iTorch! Well today we’re talking about New Trent again!
Now I love my iPhone, and both me and my husband have them. But we also both have iPads! That’s a whole lot of electronic equipment to keep running at any given time. And while the New Trent iTorch is PERFECT for keeping your cell phone charged, if you have multiple phones to charge and/or tablets as well, then it’s likely that the New Trent iCarrier is the portable charger for you! And lucky me, I was able to review one and share my experience with you.
I ordered the New Trent iCarrier through Amazon <love!> and it was shipped to my house in no time. This time my husband tore open the package, plugged it in to give it a good charge, then put it to use! He was pretty excited about this one, because I’m more of a “I need to keep my iPhone charged” person and he definitely uses his iPad much more.
As you can see by the relative size here to an iPad and iPhone, that the iCarrier is bigger than the iTorch. But what would you expect from a device that can charge tablets and phones, at the same time? It was still smooth, sleek and quite portable.
Here are a few features:
- Heavy-duty 5V/2A & 1A dual USB charger charges 2 devices at once rapidly. 2A output is optimized for iPads/tablets and 1A output is optimized for iPhones/smartphones.
- Enjoy 55 hours of movie playback time for the iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3GS, 3G, and iPod Touch (all generations).
- 80% of iPad 4 & iPad 3 battery life and 120% of iPad 2 battery life
- Compatible with all major smartphones including iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3GS, 3G, Android (Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG, Nokia, Blackberry, Sony Ericsson, etc.)
- IMP120D iCarrier is compatible with original Apple iPhone & iPad charge cable (no iPhone/iPad cable or adapters included)
And we put it to use. With two iPhones and two iPads there is always a device that needs to be charged! And it’s so nice not to have to be stuck next to an outlet on the wall, right? It’s also great when the kids are watching movies on my iPad and it needs a charge, because you know that conversation of “the battery is dead” does NOT go over well with the little ones. Problem solved! What I also loved was a couple of weekends ago I had to go on a quick turnaround road trip. Though I didn’t take my iPad, I did want my iPhone to be able to be charged anytime, anywhere during the trip. So instead of my New Trent iTorch, I charged up and took the New Trent iCarrier! The iCarrier can fully charge your iPhone up to 6 times before needing to be recharged! PERFECT for a trip, don’t you think?
So are you sold? You should be. I received the iCarrier for review, but if you have multiple phones and tables like we do, at just $76.95 on Amazon it is definitely worth the investment!
