Portable Power

Power To Go

Today's smartphones are much more than just mobile telephones, and we've come to rely on them for driving directions, taking pictures and videos, keeping up with the news, and even providing light when we need a flashlight in a pinch. As smartphones have become increasingly indispensable, so has backup power. It's no fun to run out of power just when you need to make a call, show your electronic boarding pass at the gate, or send a text.

Backup power is often in the form of boring, black bricks. But not Powerocks
portable back-up power supplies. They're bright and bold, shaped into sleek, modern designs. The 3-inch Powerocks Magic Cube can charge two devices at the same time using the built-in output cables. Besides smartphones and tablets, Magic Cube can also charge some e-readers, GPS devices, MP3 players, LED lights, and digital cameras that use a 5V charger. For even more lightweight power on the go, the tube-shaped Magicstick backup battery charger is about the size of a glue stick and fits easily in a purse, briefcase, backpack or pocket.

Powerocks self-contained power supplies come with built-in USB cables so you don't have to worry about losing or forgetting cables. You can also plug in any USB charging cable, such as those that come with iPhones and iPads. Magic Cube and Magicstick are the perfect travel companions -- lightweight, powerful and ready to charge.

    Can the magic cube charge a laptop computer?

    @Lenna Kutner . No Lenna, a Laptop needs an AC Charger. However, the Magic Cube will charge any Tablet and other USB capable devices.

    You may use the Laptop the Charge the Magic Cube itself though.

    @ Jill Hi Jill, If you are only looking for a recharge of your Smartphone then I would go with the Magicstick. It will give you up to 2 full charges, depending on your device, before it needs to be re-charged. If you are looking to power more devices and bigger battery devices like Tablets, eReaders, etc.. You need to bump up to the Magic Cube

    @ Emily Johnson Thank you for your response. I would definately be charging my smartphone, but occasionally my Kindle Fire. Maybe the 6,000 would work better??

    @Jill ... Yes Jill -- I would totally go for the Magic Cube 6000 if that is the case. It will last you much longer if you are looking to charge the Kindle Fire

    I'm sorry to say that by the time I found the cleverly hidden price tags, I'd already decided that it was going to be too much for my pleasure. Did you think that would help? From my view you were mistaken!

  • Barbara
    1/31/2013 12:49 PM

    @Kristy Gravlin I didn't see anything hidden - it says right at the top that they're $49.95 - $89.95; one would expect the smallest one to cost the least and the largest the most.

    Having just faced this problem yesterday when I needed to make an important business call, I think $50 is well worth it for my needs. If I were just a recreational cell phone user maybe not.

    Good looking, too - so glad the small one comes in blue!

    Why does the 6000 weigh twice as much as the 9000?

  •  Daisy
    1/31/2013 1:09 PM

    @MaryPat Coleman - I'm pretty sure that's a typo. I googled this product and the 6000 is smaller/lighter than the 9000.

    I'm looking at this clever littl' device for a gift for my hubby, who would be using it to recharge his iPhone for a seven day period of constant use. (Road bike rides... using the phone and aps for MapMyRide, GPS, iTunes, etc.) I'm thinking he may need to recharge multiple times over a maximum of seven days. Please suggest the size recharger needed. Largest, just to be safe? Or to ask another way, how many iPhone charges would you estimate is in each of the fully charged devices? Thank you!

    @ Theresa Benz I personally used the 9000 Magic Cube at a 5 day convention and was constantly charging my phone on the show floor. I still had power left at the end of the show for the aipplane home. I too am an iPhone user and it saved my life. So, if he's going to be on the road for an extended period of time -- Go for the 9000 especially if he's going to be using all of the APPS and GPS

    One more question... just want to be sure I'm understanding. The stick/cubes store a charge, and recharge devices (such as the iPhone) without outlets or external power. Right?

  • Emily

    @ Theresa Benz BINGO!

    How long can the charger sit and still be able to charge a phone? I saw one on TV that could sit for up to 10 months and still be able to charge a phone.

    @Kim Buskirk Powerocks has been tested to hold its charge for up to 6 months! Great for storm season and to keep in the glove box for emergencies!

    how do you recharge the Magic Cube?

  • Emily
    Emily – Special Guest
    1/31/2013 2:17 PM

    @ pmartin Use the USB end and plug into your computer or a USB Capable wall charger -- those usually come with the phone that you purchase

  •  pmartin
    1/31/2013 2:22 PM

    @Emily Johnson and how long does it take for a full charge from my computer/wall charger?

  • Emily
    Emily – Special Guest
    1/31/2013 2:34 PM

    @ pmartin 4-6 hours depending on the unit

    @susan hickman YES!!! All you do is use the cord that came with your phone. Powerocks will work with ANY USB capable device.

    I'm confused about the offer description excluding Alaska and Hawaii. Are the products available in those states but the free shipping offer is excluded, or is the whole line of products not available to us through Daily Grommet's offer?

  • Emily

    1/31/2013 3:23 PM

    @ Ginny Fagerstrom Unfortunately, to keep your prices low and have the FREE SHIPPING, we are unable to ship to Hawaii and Alaska at this point in time. I wish I had a better answer for you

    @Emily Johnson No shipping at all to these areas, or just no "free" shipping?

    Will you have other color options. Minimum choices would be ok, ie- If i want the 9000 but want pink or the 6000 but want blue would be nice

    Do you know if either or both of these will work with the new iPhones and iPads that use the newer, smaller charging cord?

  • Colleen

    does this works worldwide (220 volts and 110 volts)?

    does this works for samsung and blackberry also?

  • Emily
    Emily – Special Guest
    1/31/2013 4:53 PM

    @ anne YES it will work for Samsung, BB, LG, HTC, iPhone 4/4s/5 etc.

    Several months ago I bought a charger IDENTICAL to the Magicstick for $12.99 at Costco.com. Works great, but I doubt I would have paid these kind of prices.

  • Emily

    @Nancy Deak -- Yes there are some look-a-likes out there. The difference is in the mAh (power) and the Quality -- Our batteries are made with only Grade A lithium ion cells and the lifetime of the unit is 2x the lifetime of the look-a-likes. The Magicstick is 1A output and the Magic Cubes are 2A output which will RAPIDLY charge your device.... anything less than 1A will not charge at a rapid pace.

  •  Ellen Kramer

    Are the batteries replaceable? How long do they typically last? What is the lifetime of the unit?

    Thank you.

    I have the same question as Elen Grey. Do you mean no shipping at all to Alaska & Hawaii, or just no free shipping there?

  • anne
    2/1/2013 3:21 AM

    does this works world wide, or adjustable voltage?


  •  Cheryl
    2/1/2013 8:30 AM

    I know you say this will work with the iPhone 5 as long as you use the cord that comes with my phone - but will it get a full charge. I've carried an igo anywhere charger in my purse for the last 2 years for my older iphone and it was a lifesaver, but they are not compatible with the iphone 5. you can use it with an adapter, but will only give you about 25% charge (the people at igo have told me this) - so I'm curious if these devices will give 100% charge to the iphone 5

  • elaine
    2/1/2013 8:46 AM

    Please answer the question of wether it will work world wide. Thanks.
