No accessory is more fundamental to a smartphone’s operation than its charger. Chargers aren’t sexy, but we need them – and often in more places than we might think.
Which brings us to our Accessory Spotlight for today: the XtremeMac Incharge Portable Charger (model IPU-ICP-11).
What makes the Incharge Portable interesting is that it’s a wall charger for iPhones and iPods that also has an integrated battery pack; so you can leave it plugged in and use one of its two USB ports (or both) to charge your iPhone and/or iPod, then disconnect it from the wall when you leave and take a little more juice with you. There’s even a built-in LED charge indicator so that you know how much battery power is left when you’re on the go.
The best news is that this charger, which retails for $79, is available at Amazon.com for just $15.29. Price subject to change at any time.
