Got a gadget and not enough juice? *ahem, iPhone 5!*
Travel Booster’s Inboosta is today’s feature. The first couple of weeks I had my iPhone 5, my first real iPhone since my 3-week relationship with the 3G version, basically had me pining for the charger twice a day. I was downloading apps, setting up home pages and forgetting to shower while at it.
When the novelty of a really small iPad finally calmed me and the Happy Meal down, I realized that although the battery power of the iPhone 5 could be extended through certain tweaks on settings, notifications or location services, it still pretty much lasted 1 day.
And being the tech-savvy traveler that I am, I knew that buying the an extra battery boost would be essential, and something we could use for our iPad was a plus too. Can you imagine being stuck in an airport, between flights, and low on iPhone juice? Just think of the stoic-airportscape-photos I could be posting on Instagram!

I walked into the Digital Walker and found myself a few options but mainly picked Travel Booster’s Inboosta for getting the highest-average grade of my criteria:
- Fits into my cosmetic case
- Reasonable amount of charge in it
- Able to charge other gadgets too
FEATURES AND REVIEW DETAIL
The sales guy said this would have 3 full iPhone charges. The reality was that it provided just 2.
It’s cute and has a number of plugs included – but it doesn’t have anything for the lightning port. So you STILL have to shell out for a lightning cord.
It fits snuggly into my cosmetic case and it fits it by being really cute in pink (other colors also available)
The 4 lights on the Inboosta indicates how much charge is in it. It also indicates, while being charged itself, if it’s full already.
Cost is P2,500
I got mine from Digital Walker, Mall of Asia
