I was one of those stranded drivers. I can't really complain because I was only in the car 2.5 hours (ooh, a decimal) but I did run into a little trouble.
I did not have the car charger for my phone. With one bar left and a two mile walk in my future, I panicked. I texted everyone to let them know that if they did not hear from me, it was due to no phone rather than sliding off the road. Scary.
As I started going through every nook and cranny in my car to look for clothing items, I opened the glove compartment. (Can't believe we still call them that! Maybe my next post should be "renaming the glove compartment.") Waiting there for me was my Powerocks Magicstick. Angels started singing. The sun burst through the clouds and I knew everything was going to be ok!
Magicstick is a portable charger for your favorite device. I put it there so I would always have a charger in case I needed one at a conference. Well forget conferences, momma needed it for an emergency!
I plugged my phone into the charger and had a good 45 minutes of additional power which is saying A LOT since it had been in the car for a few days.
When I retrieved my car two days later, I put the cord and Magicstick back into the super cute bag and put it right back where I found it. It will now live in the soon to be renamed glove compartment. I think everyone should have one. They will be gifts around the holidays. They will be door prizes at parties I throw. They are great. They are small (comparing them to my Vera Bradley's up there!) They are light~about the same weight as a small flashlight. They are reasonably priced.
If you are like me and go through the life of the battery on your iPad or iPhone, seriously, you should check this out!
