Welcome to Day 5 of Cruise Critic’s Gift-o-Rama, in which we’ve been unwrapping our 2011 gift picks for the cruisers among us. Better yet: You can actually win some of our choices by simply being a Lido Deck subscriber. Today we bring you the PowerMonkey Portable Charger, which provides a convenient way for any tech-obsessed cruise lover to keep their gadgets juiced up. Up for grabs today is a Cruise Critic swag pack.
Congratulations to owenbyn, who receives yesterday’s gift pick: the Saress Beach Dress. For more information on this item, check out our complete gift-guide-in-the-making here.
Here’s the 411 on today’s gift-list-ready find:
What it is: PowerMonkey Portable Charger ($99.99)
Why we like it: The PowerMonkey portable charger allows everyone in the family to keep their gadgets fully charged for days at a time, making it perfect for cruisers on the go. The device is capable of powering up everything from cell phones to MP3 players, PDAs and portable gaming devices. It features three charging methods – universal main charger, USB or solar – so you won’t have to worry about finding space in your cabin to plug it in. Plus, you can easily attach the PowerMonkey to your daypack via an included Velcro strap, making it easy to charge your electronics while in port. Add in the fact that it’s lightweight, compact and water-resistant, and you’ll understand why we get such a charge out of it.
Where to get it: Check it out here.
