Charge your iPad or iPhone while you relax with it using a 6 Foot Apple certified charging cord

I recently received an Apple certified 6 foot cord to review from Accessorize Your Life.


This cord is thicker than the cord that you get with Apple devices. It charges so fast.

My toddler loves the iPad. He has learned a lot from the apps but we still do story time or wind down at bedtime with the ipad. Sometimes the battery is very low and we have to plug it in and sit on edge of bed. It makes for a very uncomfortable relaxation / story time. This has made our lives so much better. It’s 6 FEET! What! We can lay in bed all cozy and have it plugged in if need be.

The cord itself is durable. Where the prong meets the cord, it seems sturdy and that is good with a toddler always tugging at cord. We’ve been through 3 different cords this year so far. We are hoping this one survives since it’s well made.

It does not come with a block, so make sure you have one.

This is only $15.99 and free shipping for the 6 foot cord here.  If you don’t need the longer cord, they have a 3 foot cord for $10.99 here.

I received this item as an active blogger from Accessorize Your Life in exchange for my honest review.

UPDATE:  Mine stopped working near the part that plugs into the phone.  I contacted the company and they DID replace it and shipped me another one FREE of charge. They DO uphold their policy!

Portable Power Bank Charger for Tablet or Cell Phone Review

ADFILIC-Power-Bank-Charger-GiveawayToday I received a portable power bank charger for use with cell phones and tablets from Adfilic to review.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. You can charge the iPad 3, 4/4s and the iPad with the long flat charger.  It also charges the iPad mini and iPhone 5’s.

If you’re wondering about the brand, you can visit Adfilic.com, this pop up link takes you to their “About Us” page.

I charged the power bank right away over night.  When the battery is low while charging there is a red light.  When it’s done charging there is a blue light.  I charged it by plugging it into my computer USB port overnight.  I didn’t use it for the first two days after I charged it.  I then went out for a long day of work where my iPhone always goes dead when I’m working.  I then have to sit in the car and charge it to be able to go finish my work. (Yes, I use my iPhone for work).  I knew that bringing it for times like these, was the reason I wanted one.  Sure enough, my cell phone was at 2%.  I plugged in the power bank to my phone and it started charging it right away.  I was able to work more without going into the store.  It was a little bulky moving my phone around with the 3 prong cord attached, but I WILL TAKE IT!  It saved me time to be able to just keep my cell phone going during my work.  I kept the power bank plugged into my phone for almost 3 hours while I was using it at the same time.  My phone reached 22% when I was finished and there was still juice in the portable charger.  I don’t know how much, because as soon as I got home, I plugged it into my computer’s USB port and the red light was on meaning it was low charge.

This is so compact, it is the size of a lipstick tube.  It’s lightweight and can keep it in your pocket or the zip pocket in your purse.  If you drop it into a big purse, it will get lost because it is so compact and slim.

The bottom of the power bank says:
