Battery Backup - Lifesaver II Review

We'll start with the Disclaimer - Yes I did receive a complimentary Lifesaver II, but this just means I'm able to offer you a chance to win one too! Enter the contest at the end of this post!

I'm All Charged Up Over This Product

With ice storm 2013 still causing power outages around Ontario I thought this would be a great time to talk about an emergency battery backup.  Take a moment and watch the clip of @NeilHedley talking about the impact of the storm in his area and how the Lifesaver II was able to assist him during the ordeal on this CTV News Channel clip
Ever wish you could just get that extra little bit of power before your smartphone dies? Tired of looking for an outlet to charge your device? Well I put the Lifesaver II by Mio to the test thanks to the folks at Everik. See in the videos below how easy it is to have a backup battery on hand.

Part 2 doesn't have the hairstyle malfunction

You can see by the images below that the red light indicates that the Lifesaver II is charging and when the red light no longer appears it means it is fully charged.




I've Got The Power

As you can see from the videos and pics above the Lifesaver II by Mio is very simple to use. My smartphone started working almost immediately. I was able to text Diane on my smartphone while the Lifesaver II was in the midst of charging my device! 

As mentioned in the video be sure to follow my twitter feed @Those2Girls where I will be tweeting out other reviews by some of Canada's top bloggers and just like I promised you can enter the Rafflecopter contest below for a chance to win a Lifesaver II by Mio

Pin It Forward - Top Five Ways To Help Others On Pinterest

As Pinterest becomes more and more popular there are many ways to keep Pinterest a positive experience for everyone. The best way to be helpful is to PIN IT FORWARD

Top 5 Ways To Pin It Forward

  1. Create a board with helpful tips and tricks that you have learned to help other that are trying something new.
  2. Start a shared board with a friend to pin things that they are interested in. IE I do not crochet but my friend does and I see lots of cute crochet projects on pinterest. I pin them for her and she can easily access the board.
  3. Tag a friend in a pin that you think they will like. When you tag someone in the comment section they will receive a notification.
  4. Make a board for a cause you support. You will be adding awareness to the cause
  5. Take that extra second a LIKE the person's pin before you repin it. Obvisously it caught your fancy if it's worth a repin

Year In Review Time Of Year Again - How Social Sites Help You Reflect

2013 Online Wrap Up

This is the time of year when everyone starts posting their resolutions.
Although I usually come up with a few unique ones, I tend to look back at the year to see what stood out for me.

How Social Sites Help You Reflect

As a reader of mine, I am sure you are aware I post a lot on social media.  This comes in handy when it comes to a personal year in review.

Earlier this week Facebook complied some of my most interactive moments in MY FACEBOOK YEAR IN REVIEW

Another great way to see how your year was is to look back at your blog posts, pinterest pins and twitter hashtags that you use often.  They are a great indication of what you participated in over the last year.

Still looking for something to inspire your year in review?
YouTube posted their 2013 Rewind video as a reminder of what happened in terms of viral video over the past twelve months

And I expect that soon the 2013 Google Zeitgeist will be out with many moments from 2013 that made you both laugh and cry.

Updated Dec 17 2013 Google Zeitgeist is Live

How do you find ways to reflect on the past year? Did something stand out for you? Leave a comment below so we can both share in your memory!
