Recently I picked up one of the “Mophie Juice Pack Air”:http://www.smalldog.com/wag19613/ external battery (in Black) for my iPhone because I felt like I was running out of battery life faster than I would have liked.
Since I bought the Juice Pack Air I have been getting two full days of battery life with my iPhone (and I use it a lot!) which was a major improvement over the one day I was getting previously.
The Mophie Juice Pack Air doesn’t only extend the battery life of your iPhone–it also acts as a case for the iPhone which is an added benefit because I know my iPhone is protected.
The thing that is really nice about the Juice Pack is that to charge it I don’t have to take the case on and off–there is a mini-USB port on the case that allows me to plug in a mini-USB to USB cable (included) so I can charge the case up and sync it to my computer or plug it into my iPhone’s USB charger.
The Juice Pack Air also has built in overcharge, short-circuit and temperature protection so I don’t have to worry about damaging my iPhone in any way.
The Mophie Juice Pack Air is the thinnest external battery for the iPhone and I highly recommend it.
Normally $79.99, you can get this convenient device for $71.99! Available in “White”:http://www.smalldog.com/product/73607 or “Black”:http://www.smalldog.com/product/73606 to match it to your iPhone!

Happy Tuesday,
It’s always nice to meet up with family over a good meal, and I did just that on Thursday. It was a bit much, though, to drive all the way down to Columbia County, NY and back to central Vermont in one day.
I always take the most direct but slowest way, taking route 100 to 7 all the way to Hillsdale, where my grandparents live. The fog was so thick and the sun so bright leaving the Mad River Valley that morning that I stopped in town for a pair of cheap sunglasses, having lost mine a few days earlier. As the day went on, it cleared up beautifully and I enjoyed making headway through a hefty backlog of my favorite podcasts.
There are tons of deals to be had right now at “smalldog.com”:http://www.smalldog.com and in our stores, including from the tech rooms. Hard drive upgrades have been especially popular so far this year. Swing by and find out how to squeeze the most from your Mac!
As always, thanks for reading, and keep in touch.
