Put Seattle’s Museum of Flight on your “must see” list when you’re visiting the Emerald City. Of course, I love it since I love all “things with wings.” Three are several big exhibits, including warbirds from WW1 and WW2, Air Force 1, the Concorde…and the Space Shuttle Trainer (wow!).

-built-in plugs for your iPhone (lightening cable) and micro-USB.
-separate plug-in for USB
-built-in wall-prongs for recharging
The unit is a little smaller than my point-n-shoot camera and doesn’t weigh as much. I took a picture charging up the camera (top). With the built-in cables you can charge two devices at once. But then you have to re-charge. Still, I never was THAT far away from a plug. Even so, there were some countries (South Africa) where I didn’t have a power adapter. That’s where myCharge really came in handy.
Thankfully, all of the planes I took around the world (except Garuda) had USB plug-ins on board. But when you’re out climbing a hill, using your phone to take photos, it’s nice to have some extra power.
Two thumbs up!
