We know - you're running around all day like we are. School picks-up, sports drop-offs, grocery store trips, mani appointments, work meeting across town. And everywhere you go, your phone, tablet or computer are likely by your side keeping you on-time, up-to-date and in-the-know. But while you're going, going, going, how do you keep your tech powered?
We've been testing out some of our favorite ways to keep your tech charged up on the go so you can keep your calendar running, music playing, emails sending and Facebook updating.
Mophie Battery Case - If you're looking for an all-in-one option, we love Mophie battery cases to provide protection for our phones AND the option of additional battery power. No fun print options, but the Mophie Helium, Air or Plus cases come in a variety of solid colors and provide 80%, 100% or 120% additional battery life. The cases weighs just 2.44 oz and are simple to use - just flip a switch when you want to switch the external battery. A simple all-in-one solution for keeping your cell powered. Buy: Amazon
PhoneSuit Flex XT Pocket Charger - If you already love your stylish case (or have an iPhone 5c like I do which can be hard to find a battery case for), you can opt for a lightweight, portable charger like his Flex Pocket Charger by PhoneSuit. We tried this out during our two-day, constantly-tweeting visit to the ABC Kids Expo last month and were thrilled how lightweight it is (just 79 grams!) and how easy it is to charge your phone while still using your phone. A huge bonus that this charger requires no cords (!) and has an extended connector to fit through most phone cases. Keep the case you love and get the power you need with PhoneSuit Flex Pocket Charger. It's now a staple in our purse to be sure that soccer game, school awards or swim meets, we'll never run out of battery. Buy: Amazon
Lenmar HELIX- For more power to charge tablets or multiple phones, we love the Lenmar HELIX charger. The HELIX weighs just 0.62 lbs. and has three USB ports to charge multiple devices at once. Two of the ports are 1A USB ports for powering iPhone, Android, mobile phones and other USB powered devices and the other ports is a .4A USB port for powering tablets or smartphones. A fully charged HELIX has enough juice to recharge a tablet one full time or a phone up to 4 times. The HELIX measures just 4.72" x 2.95" x 0.93" and can be stashed in your purse or kept in the car. Choose from black, red, white or gold and make sure that your devices stay charged across town or across the country. Buy: Amazon

Lenmar ChugPlug - We spend a lot of time writing at coffee shops, sports practices, and dance rehearsals. To ensure our laptops stay running even when outlets can't be found, we rely on ChugPlug, Lenmar's portable power device for MacBooks. Suitable for 11" and 13" MacBookAir and 13" MacBook Pros, the ChugPlug provides 3-4 additional hours of battery power depending on your computer type. It's simple to use and provide much-needed power to finish that blog post, work presentation or paper for school. Do note - the ChugPlug won't work with 15" or 17" MacBooks, but word is that Lenmar has one in the works..... Buy: Amazon
