Duracell Instant Charger (Holiday Gift Guide 2012)

2012giftguideYou know that moment when you aren’t home and you won’t be for a while but your phone is dead or dying and you need to be able to use it? Yeah it happens to everyone.  It sucks. Let’s be honest.

I don’t even rely on my phone as much as some others since I don’t as of yet have a smartphone but I feel lost without my clock and an easy way to communicate with my husband. You can also use it with your ipod or other small devices you can charge with USB.

At the P&G Mom Event I attended in October we were shown a new product from Duracell, called an Instant Charger. I was blown away.


It works like this:

  1. Plug it in to your computer at home using USB cable and allow it to charge (it took around an hour or so.)
  2. Place it in your purse, bag or car along with the cord you use to charge your phone with USB.
  3. When you are out and your phone is dead or drying, plug it into the charger and turn the switch to on and it will charge your phone! We tested it out with my mom’s phone which gained 35% in a little over an hour.  You can still use the phone while it charges if you need to and you can charge it just enough to tide you over till you get home if you want.
  4. After use, when you are at home again, recharge up the instant charger so it’s ready for the next time you need it.

What a great invention!

The Instant Charger retails at $44.99  and offers up to 35 hours but there is also the pocket charger which offers up to 15 hours and retails for $29.99
