See there? Over those hills where the robin-egg sky meets the plains of waving wheat? Look at the highway cutting a black line under a family car whizzing along with its hubcaps gleaming. There’s something strapped to the roof - a kayak maybe? They’re on vacation! Isn’t it sweet? Well, it could be, but they forgot their iPhone backup battery. Let’s zoom in so we can hear:
Are we there yet?
I told you already, two more hours to go.
Are you lost, dear?
Shhh. I didn’t expect to have to power off the GPS before we got there!
Dad, can you look on your iPhone for the nearest rest stop? I have to go potty.
[giggle] You said “potty!”
Your mother gobbled the power playing Draw Something. Phone’s almost dead.
I did not! You forgot to charge it last night!
Can I play Angry Birds after we go potty?
Didn’t you hear me? The battery is dying. Try playing I Spy.
I spy, with my little eye, a pimple on my sister’s face.
Shut up! Moooom! I need to call Stacy!
Aren’t family road trips a hoot? This family had everything figured out - itinerary, map, pillows, drinks, you name it - but they missed one critical item, their iPhone backup battery. Is there anything sadder than a teenager stuck in a car with her family (and a zit) unable to contact a friend? (Not in her mind, rest assured.)
Mom and dad each should have grabbed a Rayovac PS68 On-the-Go Charger before leaving, which would have provided two more hours of talk time. The PS68 is compact, portable, and essential for travel emergencies - you know, like GPS-tracking for the nearest restroom, and of course, making an “important” call to Stacy. Don’t get caught in this situation on your next family road trip. Get that PS68 On-the-Go Charger today!
