The GoPod can be charged using a Mini USB cable connected to your computer or a USB power outlet. The material used to build the charger is sturdy and you know that it won’t break from minor falls. I would definitely be using the device while travelling and going on long road trips.
We first tested the GoPod at my mother’s house – where we really can’t let the baby crawl or cruise around unless we are watching him. The GoPod was great, because it gave us a safe place to let him play. The first time I set it up, I didn’t extend it to the highest setting, so my baby was kind of sitting in it. I quickly learned how to adjust it (I took the baby out first). Simply push the button in, extend each of the four corners and make sure the button comes out the hole (so it locks in). Since then we’ve taken it up to my old sleepaway camp, Surprise Lake, to the beach a few times and to friend’s houses — we love that it creates an instant child-friendly space!
GoPod Portable battery charger is a combination of or and a nice portable travel charger which holds enough juice to charge 5 iPhones and 2 iPads. It is a nice little accessory that costs around $70 or £44.95. It is quite useful when you are going on a long road-trip and/or a camping trip where you won’t have access to a charging point.
