myCharge Review and Giveaway

by Jacqui on January 25, 2014


I’m addicted to my iPhone.  It’s like an extension of my hand.  I use it at work, in the car, in the store and yes, at times, in a restaurant.  I know I’m not the only one out there that is like this!  Right?  As a result of this, my phone battery is low before the end of the day.  I have a USB charger in my car of course, but, that’s not exactly useful when you are in a store.  This is where myCharge comes in.  I was sent a myCharge Summit 3000 to review and was pretty impressed with it.  I wanted to test the battery after its arrival.  It was at 50% when it got to me.  Two weeks later? It was still at 50%.  I was very surprised at this.

When you plug it in to start charging, the voice volume is kind of loud.  But, it tells you what you are doing.  When you plug it in to start the charging process, it says “Power On.  Power Bank Charging”.  You can also charge it in by plugging it into the USB port of your computer.  From the myCharge site:

The myCharge® Summit 3000 is a rechargeable 3000mAh battery pack that will charge the average smartphone 2 times, and even charges iPad and other tablets.  iPhone 5 owners, use the USB port and your cable to get charged!

It does not come with the cable for the iPhone5/iPad Mini. You will need to use your own cable in the USB port on the myCharge device.  When I charged my iPad Mini, it was at 10% and it made it to 42% charged before the Summit 3000 was no longer charged itself.  This was from a fully charged status.  I still had applications running on the iPad that I hadn’t closed out yet.  I’m assuming that is the reason it didn’t fully charge.  Just because, like my iPhone, I love using my iPad all the time.  The cables on the myCharge include one that can be used for your Kindle or other Android devices.  It also has the connection for the older generation iPhones and iPods.

myCharge has generously offered one of my readers within the Continental USA a changes to win one of these for themselves :).  This charger retails as $59.95. You can enter by using Rafflecopter below.
