Power Up: New Tech Merchandise Available at Disney Shops
Extra batteries and chargers are staple items to add to your tech bag before leaving on vacation. In my bag you'll find a variety of chargers to keep me going throughout my day of heavy touring. For my usage of heavy tweeting and texting during vacations, my iPhone battery will last me until about mid-day. After that it's time to plug in and power up to both keep in touch with the rest of our party, and share the fun with my Twitter stream. In the past if you forgot your spare battery you were just plain out of luck, but now if you forget, now Disney's got your back.
Disney's merchandising continues to get savvy to the tech needs of it's guest in an ever connected world. Starting in March guests will be able to purchase one of two options at Disney Parks' shops to help power up their smart phones and cameras while they're on the go.
The iPhone Battery Extender Case provides your iPhone 4/4S with a second battery and charges by plugging into a computer with a USB cable. Your iPhone will drain the case battery reserves before starting on your phone's battery. It's available for $54.95.
The Power Bank Battery Extender (also available in black) charges by plugging into
a computer via USB. It's Tri-Plug Cable has a mini and micro USB and an apple adapter. It's available for $54.95.
