Bracketron

Looking for phone chargers and other great products and accessories for your smartphone and other devices? Bracketron is the place to look! They have such a wide variety or products such as Universal USB Travel Power Kit and GPS & Smartphone Power Chargers. I really like the Universal USB Travel Power Kit because it is small and compact, which is just perfect for travel. It fits into any 12v or AC power port and there’s no need to carry multiple model specific chargers. This is just perfect for powering up a portable device practically anywhere. Retails for $39.95. I also received the GPS & Smartphone Power Charger which is great to charge your GPS or Smartphone while you drive. It has an Indicator and 4 ft power cord. I love this! Right now it is on sale for $9.95! But, I think my favorite is the Style-IT 2-in-1 which is just great for drawing and photography apps! It can be used for multiple touch screen devices and has a built-in ballpoint pen for the times when you need to take notes.
