Let’s face it: Whether you were out late at a party, stuck in an airport or at a play that ran extremely LONG, you’ve run out of battery life on your iPhone, Android or iPad.

As smart as your device may be, with no battery, you are left feeling kind of dumb and disconnected from your text messages, tweets, Instagram likes and getting to level 500 on Candy Crush.

What to do? What to do?


A Cleveland, Ohio based product has the answer. Meet the UNIBAT, a device that has made it easier for everyone to keep your high tech USB-powered mobile toys charged up. “At some point in your life, you’re going to need backup power, said Justin Miller founder of the UNIBAT. “And it’s usually when you least expect to in addition to when you most expect it.”

The size of a lipstick, the $49.99 UNIBAT mobile charger fits comfortably in your pocket or purse and provides you with more than 500 cycles of backup power for your mobile devices. “The product that we have today can charge anything in the US market from IPad to Kindle to Android anything,” said Miller.

Miller developed the product in North America after studying abroad in college in China. “We knew there would be a huge demand for the product and it could be essential to daily living,” Miller told The Source by phone.

The UNIBAT runs on a Samsung lithium ion battery and according to the company’s site, the UNIBAT mobile chargers are environmentally friendly because they are mercury free, 100% recyclable and control energy flow to your device, reducing overall energy consumption. UNIBAT offers a 1 year warranty for the product. They come in uniquely named colors too. You can grab them in Candy Apple Red, Gun Metal Grey, Azure Blue, and Silver Steel.

Ladies, UNIBAT didn’t leave you out. You can cop them in Juicy Pink.

Convenience is what the company is aiming for. “Really, the great thing about UNIBAT, the market is everybody, everywhere because wherever you are at some point in your life, you’re going to need backup power,” said Miller.

Eventually you will be able to find the products worldwide in retail markets, hotels and airports. But in the meantime, UNIBAT is getting huge business on their site.
