I have a Chromebook and require the internet to execute simple tasks. So when I find myself at coffee shops that don’t have WiFi, which is quite often, I’m forced to tether my phone in order to be productive. But tethering kills my phone’s battery. As a result I decided to purchase a portable charger pack.

However, if you’ve been following my previous posts, it’s quite apparent that I tend to prefer a timeless aesthetic as opposed to an electronic, contemporary one. I deliberately searched for a charger that looked natural, and I came across a device called Lepow U-stone. It is soft to the touch, matches my other apparel and accessories, and is extremely functional. I haven’t attached much reflective value to it, but the behavioral and aesthetic experience is spot-on for my tastes. Take a look!
