iPhone Power Case

One of the drawbacks to traveling is that it can sometimes be a hassle to find an outlet to charge an iPhone, iPad or other electronic device. Finding a power station in an airport can be problematic and until recently, charging a device on a plane wasn't even a possibility.

So when Charlotte and I were about to set sail on our Triple Anniversary cruise, I was already in the market for an easy way to keep my iPhone charged while we were out of the country.  That's why I jumped at the chance to test drive the new iPhone Power Case from Innovative Technology.


It's an easy-to-use case that simply slips over your iPhone and plugs into its base with its built-in lightening connector. Just use your phone as you normally would until you're about out of power. Then just push the button on the bottom of the iPhone Power Case and your phone recharges automatically (and fast!).


The one-button simplicity for recharging makes it great. The case's unique built-in stand for video chatting or movie watching, makes it even better. Innovative Technology's iPhone Power Case saved me countless times on our trip. I never had to worry about running out of juice when we were away from the standard 110 voltage onboard ship, because I had TWICE the power thanks to the convenient case.

If you're tired of your iPhone always running out of power when you need it most, then do yourself a favor and pick up an iPhone Power Case. It's easy to use and will keep you talking and texting while your friends are scrambling to find an outlet.

The Boomer Brief gives the iPhone Power Case from Innovative Technology 5 Power Plugs (out of 5).

Available now in Ross Stores and Target Canada in the early Fall. $69.99 in most locations.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
