The +Lifeguard Mini 1 portable charger is an external battery designed to charge cell phones, tablets, and gaming devices. It comes with a micro USB cable and a lightning 8-pin cable (Apple compatible) to charge several different devices from Androids to iPhones. The 3000mAh capacity fully charges devices in 1.5 - 2.5 hours.
This device has been my saving grace when traveling and day trips. Since I use my phone's camera to take all my photos and instagram them, my battery runs out very fast. Thankfully I now have a backup to charge my phone so I'm not left without a camera or contact with friends and family. This charger is very sturdy with an impact-resistant aluminum shell. I've dropped it once and it didn't even get a dent. It's also a nice size to stick in your bag or purse, although I do wish it was just a bit lighter.
One thing I would have liked to see included with this is a bag or case to carry both the external battery and cord together when I travel. I use an old sunglasses travel bag which works fine, it's just not as sleek as I would like. But, I'm so happy to have this backup to charge up my phone on the go. It works great, is very sturdy and durable, and is a nice size for travel.
