Review: New Trent’s N135T Powerpak+ and NT90C | @NewTrent #BatteryCharger

I’m a Mom on-the-go (and very active in social media) so when I’m at events live tweeting, taking pictures, and instagramming, my smartphone’s battery won’t last the entire day. Last Christmas I received a portable battery that was like my best friend which I carried everywhere proudly. It started out great with two full charges, then not six months later, I only got one charge before it eventually crapped out on me. (Didn’t realize you’ll have to eventually replace them.) Now I’m in the market again for a new one and found New Trent’s N135T Powerpak+. It’s a little heavier than my old one, but it’s definitely more powerful. With … READ MORE

You see – while all the Smurfs are afraid of the Headless Horseman, Brainy Smurf is too logical to believe in that sort of tale.
