Mobile Edge’s UrgentPower DX 5200 Review

By Judie Stanford, Editor In Chief, Gear Diary

Perhaps one day, mobile phones will be invented that have batteries that recharge themselves as the person carrying them walks around. Until then, we’ll have to continue relying upon charging cords, AC/DC adapters, and extended batteries. If you’re still shopping for a mini power plant, Mobile Edge‘s UrgentPower DX 5200 is small enough to carry around for unforeseen charging emergencies.

Measuring a compact 3.7″ long x 1.75″ wide x 0.9 thick and weighing 4.2 ounces, the DX 5200 is light enough and compact enough that it can fit in all but the smallest evening bags; it is certainly sized so that it won’t take up much space in a gear bag, briefcase, or purse. What this extended battery packs in convenience and charging power is belied by its small size.

Included in the package are the 5200mAh battery, an Apple 30-pin adapter, a microUSB Connector, a miniUSB Connector, and a USB charging cable. The cable that comes with the battery has a port on one end which can accept each of the three included charging tips in order to charge various devices. The microUSB tip on the cable is needed to charge the UrgentPower DX 5200 from a free USB port or AC/DC USB power source.

The UrgentPower DX 5200 has a button on its top that when pressed once will light up the appropriate amount of LEDs to indicate the battery’s charge status. Pressing the button twice will activate the built-in flashlight, pressing twice again will turn it off.

Travel Tips in Inclement Weather

Winter weather can be very unpredictable, and this winter has proven that thus far. Although spring is only weeks away, there are parts of the country that have not seen temperatures above 32 degrees in weeks. This of course has severely impacted air travel, leaving business travelers stranded for days on end.

According to FlightStats.com, daily on-time ratings for the nation’s commercial air-traffic system dropped as low as 47.7 percent during the first seven days of 2014. Although the weather cannot be altered, here are a few Travel Tips to help stave off those treacherous waits at the airport.

Have a Plan B. When things go wrong, don’t expect airline call centers or ticket-counter agents to have the time or resources to help you plan alternatives. Do it yourself and prepare a Plan B itinerary before beginning your trip. There are other routes you can take to get to where you need to go.

Always Budget extra time. Winter weather can play havoc with schedules. Assume there will be delays for anything you use on the road. From flights, airport shuttles, trains and even hotel check-ins and check-outs. Depending on where you are flying into or from will dictate how detailed your extra time should consist of.

Book hotels along the way. Spending the night on the floor of an airport terminal is not a great way to spend your night. Especially during winter months, have contingency hotel reservations at or near all airports you’ll use on a trip. You can always cancel them if you do not need them.

Travel lighter. Checked luggage can easily pose a problem when flights get cancelled, rerouted, etc. Pack lighter, and try to only take carry-on luggage. Checkpoint-friendly Laptop Bags are essential when traveling with your laptop and or Tablet. These TSA friendly laptop bags will help you fly through security checkpoints, especially when in a hurry. If it is essential that you take extra gear, ship it ahead via UPS, FedEx.

Smartphone Apps are Critical. If you do not already have a Smartphone, you may want to consider one. There are weather Apps, Apps for Airlines, hotel chains, car rentals and more. All of these helpful apps will guide you through your travels and help get you to where you need to go.
