Powerocks Magistick Review

*Disclosure: I was provided the following product in exchange for my review.  I will not be compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own.

I received the Powerocks Magistick just before Christmas and was super excited to give it to Rich as a stocking stuffer!  With all the busyness of Christmas, and extra time spent with family, we just got around to trying it out.

This little Magistick is a portable cell phone charger that is small enough to fit in a pocket, purse or back pack, so there is no need to worry about a cell phone's battery dying.  (It also works on other devices.)

It comes with this handy little pouch to keep the cord(s) and Magistick in.  I love that they can help us stay organized!
The Magistick comes with the cord pictured below, which works perfect for my cell phone!  Additional cords to work with your device would need to be purchased separately.  We plan to get a spare USB cord to work with Rich's iPhone 4S.  We tested it out using the iPhone power cord and it worked great!
The picture below shows that it's charging my phone with the USB portion of the cord plugged into the Magistick.  The blue light indicates that there is 70% to 100% charge left in the Magistick.  It will light up green if there is 30% to 70% charge, red if below 30%, and will not light up at all if there is no charge left. (The lighted portion needs to be 'clicked' to show the color indicator light.)
When the cord is turned around with the USB portion plugged into a computer, the Magistick can then charge.  It will shine a red light while it's charging, then the light will turn blue when it is fully charged. 
I'm very excited for Rich to be able to start using this Magistick!  There have been several occasions where he wasn't able to charge his cell phone at night, whether he forgot or was out on fire calls.  He has a car charger for his phone, but he can never get his phone fully charged in his drive to work.  He would usually turn off the phone to save battery life, but he wouldn't need to anymore with the Magistick! 
Check out my previous post about the Powerocks Magistick to learn more about it.
