Tech For Mom
Still looking for a Mother's Day gift? Mark Barger has some high-tech options.
Chances are smartphones are among the gift possibilities for some moms this Mother's Day.
Keeping those devices charged all day can sometimes be a challenge, but there are gift options
to take care of that.
Among the increasing number of options for charging on the go is Powerocks Magicsticks.
They're a portable rechargable battery pack, costing around $30.
The Magicsticks come in multiple colors and one variation offers an led light that tells you
How well charged the stick is.
Instead of carrying a charger in a purse, the "Everpurse" actually serves as a smartphone
Various styles are available, ranging from $189 to $319.
The Everpurse works with iPhone 4, 4s and 5, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Offering a bit more flexibility, not to mention size, is Urban Junket's Charging Tote.
It costs around $230.
Even though the purse can hold a laptop or tablet, it can't charge those.
But it can charge up e-readers or portable gaming devices to keep moms on the go properly powered.
