Remember The Charger!

Mac Power Charger

Mac Power Charger

I write this post while being stranded in San Antonio. I traveled here this weekend as an artist manager to see a new artist we are working with. I had a wonderful, beautiful weekend with one exception. I failed to pack the charger for my Mac. When I first realized I had left the charger at home, I thought “no biggie”. If my computer battery dies, I can live without it for a couple of days right? I still have my iPhone and I did remember to bring that charger. I also have a Mophie Air Juicer as an additional charger for the iPhone. For some reason, my iPhone battery doesn’t last very long when I’m traveling so the iPhone died quickly. Lucky for me I had a fully charged Mophie Juicer. I quickly ran the Juicer battery down. Then I realized, the Mophie Juicer charges via a connection with my Mac which needs to be plugged into an AC outlet. From that point on, my iPhone with a regular charge was my only connection to the internet. Nashville had severe weather and flooding going on so my flight was canceled. By that time, all batteries on all devices were dead. The dead iPhone & Mac battery prevented me from getting rebooked on another flight quickly. The result was that I wasn’t able to get out of San Antonio for two days because all of the other affected passengers were able to call Southwest Airlines before me. Crazy outcome of events all because I left my charger at home. I did find an Apple Store in San Antonio and they were kind enough to allow me to camp out for a while and charge all my devices. While in San Antonio I was reminded of the famous quote “Remember the Alamo!”. I have now adopted my own motto “Remember the Charger!”
