Ever find yourself on a train, plane or bus and your cell phone is nearly dead? On top of it all, there are no outlets to be found and your significant other is waiting to find out what time you arrive.
It’s a terrible feeling. And completely avoidable when you’ve got a power source like the Goal Zero Flip 20 Recharger!
Unlike most rechargers that require a USB cord to power it up, the Flip 20 has its own USB connector that “flips” open and plugs into a USB source. It’ll take about four hours for a full charge and you can see how much charge there is via the battery indicator lights.
Once completely full, you use the Flip 20 with a USB cable to charge your phone or other device. The unit will give you about two full charges on your phone and slightly more for other devices such as a fitness tracker, watch, headlamp, etc.).
Alternately, you can charge the Flip 20 using one of Goal Zero’s portable solar panels!
I’m pretty good about keeping an eye on the power level of my cell phone and try not to leave the house (or hotel) without it being fully charged. I have, however, been out for the day during my travels taking a lot of photos and video, only to discover that I have very little battery left. At least not enough battery power to continue with liberally taking photos. That’s when the Goal Zero Flip 20 has come in really handy!
Available on Amazon in Charcoal Gray and Blue. Available in Green on the Goal Zero site.
