Beauty bloggers should always be prepared with a chic power bank
By Carla Snuggs
Hey, fellow beauty bloggers! Have you ever been in a situation where, at the most important moment, you find your cell phone or tablet dying when you need to send out that all-important email, snap that photo or make that call? I've been at that all-too important event when my cell phone's battery died and I couldn't find a power source anywhere. Needless to say, a sleek, portable cell phone charger is a must-have for every beauty blogger.
When you're at home or at the office, you can so easily plug in and get your phone or tablet recharged the moment your battery power starts to decrease. But when you're on the go, it can be difficult to get instant access to power sources. A portable power bank is a must so that even if you're out in the boonies, you can easily get your device charged.
- As a beauty blogger, there are so many occasions when you must have on your cell phone or your tablet at the ready. For example:
- Beauty blogger events, especially when you're on assignment and need to take photos and notes and upload them to social media or your blog
- When inspiration strikes you because you have the perfect lighting or background for a beautiful selfie or a group photo
- When you're out and about and you want to snap photos of outfits and products you love so that you can share them with your readers in real-time
- When you're traveling (because who wants to stand around a charging station at the airport charging your devices?).
What to Look for in a Portable Power Bank
So, what kind of portable charger or power bank should you choose? There are all kinds - many shapes, sized and weights, and they all have different price points.
First, make sure you understand your device's specs. You can find this information on the manufacturer's website or you can ask your cell phone carrier if you have questions about the type of mobile charger that is compatible with your device.
Also, look for the following in a portable mobile charger:
Convenient to carry: Your mobile charger should be light in weight and small in size. Carrying a bulky accessory around can be quite frustrating. Look for a charger that can be tucked away into your handbag or clutch.
Powerful: The moment your phone runs out of battery, you should be able to recharge fairly quickly and get right back to business in a short period of time.
Sleek: Your power bank should have no unnecessary or unsightly wires or cables. Who wants to carry any accessory that comes with a lot of dangly wires or messy cables? Fortunately, chargers like the Solar Power 50000mAh Power Bank/LED light & Stylus USB Pen, are sleek and frее frоm ѕuсh encumbrances. And it does it all! You can charge multiple devices all at once. You’ll always have power and light (because it has an LED flashlight). Plus, it comes with a Dual USB Stylus In-Pen. As well as a portable 8GB Flash Drive so you can store, transfer, upload and download all kinds of info and media files while you’re on the go!
Stylish: Your charger should be attractive and chic. After all, YOU are a beauty blogger, influencer and taste-maker. Set new trends with a chic mobile charger AND be sure to carry your device in a really unique and beautiful case. I love this Liquid Phone Case (above). This luxurious, soft, clear electroplating mirror phone case is very functional and affordable and it’s also a great conversation piece, which is great when you’re networking at beauty events.
