  • You're More Powerful Than You Think!

    In case you haven't seen it yet, we think this video from Apple is pretty awesome! It reminds us in so many ways how we as individuals are indeed powerful in our own unique way. And, we really like that message.

    At PowerSkin we're all about encouraging and inspiring everyone we meet. Whether we meet you face to face or you read our words through a simple blog post, our message is the same- from the bottom of our hearts, we want you to feel empowered, strong, and like you have everything you need to put your dreams into motion and do what you love.

    That's what's important to us, and that's why we don't just "churn out" portable power products, but it's why we meticulously design and craft only the highest quality SOLUTIONS to keep YOU powered. Because, as Apple so perfectly puts it, you ARE powerful, and we're here to keep reinforcing that every step of the way! Enjoy!

  • PowerSkin is bringing smiles to the Grove LA!

    IMG_1901

    At PowerSkin, we love talking to you, interacting with you, sharing our beliefs, and making you smile! So, when an opportunity came to us to co-manage a kiosk at a pretty awesome outdoor shopping center in the heart of Los Angeles called the Grove, we couldn't pass it up!

    Working with our partners, DryWired, we've been at the Grove for about a month now and it's been an amazing experience! The interaction with Grove shoppers has been truly electrifying as we listen to their stories, and share a few portable power ones of our own.

    It's been very interesting finding out how relatively unknown the portable power industry is and we delight in educating shoppers about how not only beneficial our battery cases and portable power packs are, but how they are crafted with the most advanced technology and have the HIGHEST safety standards around. No batteries catching fire or cheap knock-offs from us. We're the real deal. :) IMG_8121

    But, it's not all about our products. What sets us apart and why we truly love being part of the Grove is because we care. And seeing you face-to-face means we can show you just how much YOU mean to us.

    We care about going the extra mile for our customers and ensuring they have the BEST PowerSkin shopping experience possible! We laugh with you, we joke with you, we let you feel, and experience our products first hand. We offer special perks like gift wrap during holiday times, because, when it comes to PowerSkin and how much we care, just like the Grove says... "There´s nothing like it. In fact, there´s nothing even close." 

    If you're in Los Angeles or Orange County, and you haven't been up to the Grove, you have to go! Even if it's just for window shopping, you don't want to miss this place. The atmosphere is incredible. Life seems to simply slow down here. You almost forget where you are. There's even the old farmer's market which has an astonishing array of tasty foods to try! The Grove does everything they can to let you know that YOU are special and deserve ONLY the best and PowerSkin feels the exact same way!
    20140415_141300

    If you're looking for a great gift for you grad or dad and want something they'll actually use and can count on, come to the Grove over and stop by our kiosk right in front of the movie theaters OR check out our website- power-skin.com. You'll be glad you did!

  • WWDC 2014. What this means for Apple users!

    wwdc_2014_by_djtech42-d7c6wfy

    So, you've probably see WWDC related news or #WWDC hash tags floating around the internet this past week, but you weren't really sure what it was. Let me first start by saying, no, it's not some weird play off WWJD (what would Jesus do), but actually, it's Apple's World Wide Developer's Conference.

    Now, you're probably thinking....World Wide Developer's Conference... "WWDC"... great, got it, but what does it have to do with me? I didn't see anything about the new iPhone coming out, so why should I care?

    Well, you should care (if you want) because it's technology.... it's innovation... and it's all focused right around YOU.

    That's right! This year, Apple didn't drop any hugely world rocking product or design bombs like the look of the highly anticipated iPhone 6, no, instead they actually exceeded expectations by completely upgrading their operating system, focusing on making your life BETTER!

    Gasp! They actually listened to all your comments, concerns, applauds, and annoyances and seemingly have created iOs 8 to give you a better quality of life!

    How revolutionary! :p

    So, how have they done this? Well, they have created better apps and better ways for ALL your Apple devices to now seamlessly work together. They've updated how you can respond to text messages. You don't have to leave the app you're in anymore! Group messaging has also gone though a redesign, with the ability to name threads, add or remove people from a group message already happening. You will even be able to remove yourself from from a group chat or turn on "do not disturb" to stay in the group conversation, but not have your phone blowing up every second with everyone's responses.

    They've also created a few new apps, two of the ones most highlighted and beneficial to you being simply, Health, which like Samsung's S Health, monitors and records your interested activities AND is integrated directly with the Mayo Clinc, which directly updates your app, should you get a blood test or something, and also provides DIRECT doctor to patient communication! The 2nd app, now this one isn't necessarily something new, but will be super awesome to have right there on you iPhone is- HomeKit. Now, HomeKit will easily control locks, lights, camera's, doors, etc. in your home. Say you forget to lock the front door... you will apparently be able to lock it from your Apple integrated phone app. Let's just hope Apple has a pretty sleek anti-phone hack system in place for that one. Wouldn't want you garage door going crazy!

    Also, Apple finally debut its desktop operating system Mac OS X 10.10 on Monday, now officially known as Yosemite! For MAC users, a redesigned user interface moves OS X toward a cleaner look, similar to the appearance introduced in iOS 7. If you have an iPhone, you can place and receive calls from your Mac, and even receive text messages from non-iPhone users! Pretty cool!

    Well there you have it! Some of the biggest highlights from WWDC 2014. Would Steve Jobs of been proud? We think so. How do you feel about these new integrated apps and technologies?

  • PowerSkin Recharge Is Here!

    _DSC6575Click the image to find out more!

  • Top 10 Questions for PowerSkin Recharge

    _DSC6528PowerSkin Recharge is the newest product in our family of Portable Power solutions. Recharge is a multi-device charger that allows for easy, on-the-go charging of many different smartphone and tablet brands. Perfect for adventures, day-trips, meetings, studying, field trips, nights out, and many other uses, Recharge's portability and versatility makes it an essential tool in managing your power.

    What are the connected cables for and why are they connected?

    When designing PowerSkin Recharge, we sought to make it very easy to use and dependable. That means taking away the burden of having to remember most charging cords. Recharge has one built in USB cable and one built in Micro USB cable. The USB cable is an input cable and is meant to charge Recharge via a laptop or other USB port. The Micro USB cable is an output port and is meant to power up other devices like smartphones, tablets, etc.

    P1110096

    What are the ports at the bottom for?

    There are two USB output ports and one Micro USB input port. This means we can plug in our charging cords (like the iPhone charging cord) to one of the USB ports and charge our iPhones right up! The Micro USB input port is used again for charging Recharge via a laptop or a wall charger.

    P1110098

    What does 5000 mAh mean?

    5000 mAh is Recharge's battery capacity. mAh stands for milliampere-hour. If you look under the battery of your smartphone,  you can see how much power your phone requires. My Samsung Galaxy S3 says 1025 mA. This means that it needs a little over 1000 mA of power to charge back up to 100%. Therefore, Recharge can charge your phone back up to 100% about 3 or 4 times. It all depends on the phone's power requirements.

    How big is Recharge?

    Recharge is 4.9" x 2.4" x .64" and only .29 lbs! It is remarkably light weight and slim.

    Where can I put my Recharge?

    Because of it's small size, Recharge fits nearly anywhere- pocket, purse, clutch, briefcase, glove box, backpack, hiking backpack, duffle bag, tackle box...

    pic 4

    How long does Recharge take to fully charge?

    Recharge takes 8-10 hours to fully charge back up, so I suggest charging it at night if you are going to use it the next day. You can easily charge Recharge via a laptop or the same wall charger you use to charge your smartphone.

    What can Recharge charge?

    We've tried smartphones, iPhones, tablets, iPads, Go-pros, e-readers...

    How many things can I charge at once?

    Recharge can easily charge two or tree different smartphones at once, or one tablet.

    Where can I purchase Recharge and when will it be available?

    Recharge will be available very soon to purchase on our website at http://power-skin.com/

    Why do I need portable power, like Recharge?

    Portable Power enables us to do the things we love without worrying about a dead battery. In today's world, we depend a lot on technology, and especially our smartphones. Imagine using the map on your phone to get home, and running out of power. How would you get home? Or if you're spending a day at Disneyland with the family. You want to be able to capture as many memories as possible by taking pictures and videos, without having to constantly watch your battery, right? Portable power takes the worry out of using our smartphones and tablets and frees our lives to focus on the things we love!

    *Bonus question- Why PowerSkin?

    PowerSkin ® is Powered by XPAL , meaning it’s charged by patented battery technology that reflects the highest standards for safety, quality, and performance. XPAL Power Inc pushes industry boundaries and delivers products consumers want. We focus on providing products and services that allow people to enjoy life without worrying about power.

  • PowerSkin Donates PoP'n Chargers to YMCA Conference! #PoweringPassion

    MACCattendees

    Meet Joel Sieplinga, Camp Tecumseh YMCA Summer Camp Director. We had the opportunity  to connect with Joel early in the year and hear his story. We wanted to show our support to Joel, the YMCA, and the Mid America Camping Conference, so knowing how important phone battery life is, we sent up PoP'n phone chargers for to be sold at their big auction. 

    Here's Joel's #PoweringPassion story...

    "From January 14-17, 2014 at Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center, the 2014 Mid America Camping Conference welcomed 196 YMCA camping professionals from 58 associations in 17 states.  This annual conference is held to prepare camp directors from all over the country to provide the best possible camp experience for tens of thousands of youths and families."

    "2014's conference theme was Building Community, Building Character, and Building Camp.  The focus of many of our sessions was not just the fun and games of camp, but the goal of those fun and games--youth development.  As one of our keynote speakers, Michael Brandwein, said, 'We are in the business of changing people.'  Participants heard from three different keynote speakers--Michael Brandwein, Jim Everett and Michelle Cummings--and had 40 different breakout sessions to choose from, ranging from first-time director round-table to planning for retirement."

    "This year, as they've done in the past, the MACC hosted an auction. The auction included some great donations from various companies including an international staff placement from 3adventures and PoP'n phone chargers from PowerSkin.  These chargers were especially popular with the resident camp directors in attendance as typically cell phone reception at resident camps is pretty spotty and their cell phones often suffer from poor battery life.  With all of the items auctioned off, we raised $6,000 from attendees.  Half of that money will go toward Typhoon Relief in the Phillippines and the other half will go to help scholarship future MACC attendees."

    MACCauction

    "It was truly inspiring to see YMCA Camp Professionals reach into their pockets to support such amazing causes!  Next year's conference will be held January 13-16, 2015 at YMCA Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, IN."

    If you have a great cause or a story you want to become a #PoweringPassion story, let us know. Send inquiries to Kelly@xpalpower.com. I can't wait to hear what you have to say!
