Photive Powerbank Emergency Charger

As a frequent traveler, I carry most of my gadgets with, ipod, laptop, ipad, camera, etc...I have been into that experience when my phone got run out of battery and I couldn't even find an outlet at the airport because there isn't any single free one that is not in use. So, I thought, I am not alone in having dead phone or laptop because most people in the airport are too!

Anyway, I am glad there are options. I purchased an emergency charger that I can use with my phone just in case it will turn dead again! 

Photive powerbank is compatible with most mobile phones including iphone, mp3/mp4 and even gaming device like PSP/NDS, it has a capacity of 2600 mAh and only weighs 80 grams. This is one of the important features I love with this charger because of its size and you can even put it inside your pocket, and just the size of a lipstick cover.
I already tried it with my ipod classic that hasn't been charged for a while, and charged it for an hour, and it had 90% full battery up again. I was able to play for like 30-40 minutes more and still battery was still almost full after that.

It comes with a USB cord cable. Attach your USB cord to your PC or ac adapter to charge it. You notice that there are 2 different holes on it. The smaller one at the bottom is where to connect your USB cable cord to your ac adapter  in order to charge it. The bigger hole opening is where you where you attach your USB cord to your gadget to charge your device. The round shape button-like in between these holes is a LED indicator which shows the remaining battery power of the charger. 

It also comes with an instruction manual and instructions and it is simple to easy as 1,2,3 :).

I haven't tried it with ipad or notebook. (I have ipad and Samsung galaxy tablet, but it seems it would only work best with phones and smaller devices. It also wasn't mentioned in the instructions if tablets are allowed. I don't wanna risk it. 

I no longer have to join the mob with people who are scampering around desperately to find an outlet anywhere I go. Before I go for a trip, I had to be sure my emergency charger is fully charged, enough to call people in case of emergency without worrying my phone going dead at the middle of our conversation.

My Samsung Chromebook

So, finally I decided to get another net book that I could carry with me for travel. I got two laptops that I left in the Philippines since my last vacation, and I decided to leave it there for something to use when I go back.

I was eyeing to buy one that should be lightweight and doesn't occupy a lot of space in my carry on bag.

Went to Best Buy and I got Samsung Chrome, the fact that it is ultra thin and light and the price was perfectly right for my pocket ;). I got it for $216.99, not bad.

But keep in mind that this laptop does not have much of the many features that you see on a full-featured and more pricey laptop that many sell today at the computer store.
So if you want a laptop that is thin and light, ad want to use it mainly for a simple internet browsing and simple writing online, then this might be one ideal to get.

Here are some of the things you have to be aware of when buying Samsung Chrome:

  • It doesn't run with other operating system such as Windows or Mac. It is also exclusively run by Google Chrome.
  • You can't install software elements such as MS Office or Adobe Photoshop, etc...
  • There is no CD or DVD port player, but there is one USB port to connect your camera or other USB port-enabled devices. There is also an SD card slot provided just in case your camera uses SD card.

     - OS: Google Chrome
     - CPU: Exynos 5250
     - LCD: 11.6" LED HD (200nit)
     - VRAM: Shared
     - Memory: 2GB (DDR3L 800MHz)/ON BD
     - HDD: e.MMC 16GB (On Board)

It comes with a power cord, and a basic start instructions manual.

The only thing that is not good for me on this is, it doesn't have the capability to read publisher files. It can read a word doc file, but I haven't tried using it with Excel or powerpoint, so I can't tell if it works or not. I don't use power point and Excel too in my work.

Also bought a protector cover, ideal to use for protection when putting it in a bag while traveling.

Easing Your Heartburn Quick!

If you start feeling a heartburn, drinking 4 ounces of water will help dilute the stomach acid and will flush it back down into your gut.
If it doesn't work, try chewing a piece of gum or sucking a hard candy. They can both increase the production of saliva that can help neutralize acid and relieve the pain. Just be sure to skip the mint candy as it can relax the stomach muscles making the acid easier to flow back up to the esophagus.

It may also help to take a 15-minute walk after eating which can also help your stomach empty faster and making its contents move in the right direction. :)
