mophie powerstation 3X
Texting, calling and posting tends to wear down the battery of your smart device. To help maintain the connection with your significant other, give them the gift of a mophie powerstation 3x external battery. This ultra-thin and super lightweight battery pack is compact enough to fit in a pocket. Equipped with two charging ports, the 6,000mAh battery makes it possible to charge two power-hungry devices at once --even when you're not near an outlet-- and is compatible with most USB-charged devices. The mophie even has an LED indicator that lets you see when your powerstation requires a power boost.
When your device and the powerstation are both low on power, a Priority + Charging function first charges your device, then restores power to the battery pack. Result: your device is given charging priority, so it’s ready to go when you need it.
