The Tweets, Google Plus messages, Facebook Status’ and even Instagr.am photos are echoing the same theme; at South By Southwest smartphone and tablet batteries aren’t keeping up.
We’ve seen pictures of people bringing multiple power strips to the Austin Convention Center. Samsung has stationed several of their “airport” charging stations all over the convention center and Austin. FedEx is running around with charging vests, and every party is pimping Free Food, Free Beer and Free Charge Up.
Yup Austin, people need phone power. That’s where thedroidguy and Powerbag have come in all week long. Since last Thursday we’ve been giving away Powerbags to people from Austin Texas, and around the country here celebrating and attending South By Southwest (SXSW).
More after the break
The contest has been easy. We’ve been giving away tons of Powerbags and the winning isn’t over yet. If you find yourself needing a charge up just tweet: @thedroidguy and @mypowerbag with your location and the hashtag #sxswPowerup. If you’re lucky and we’re close by we will hand you a Power Bag.
It’s really that easy, no mailing, no waiting, oh yeah and before we left the office for Austin every single Powerbag we’re giving away was charged up. Check out videos of Dustin from Austin and Mike from Savannah Georgia. Both guys needed a charge, and now they can have one whenever they need it thanks to Powerbag.
Here’s Mike from Savannah:
