Not a problem with this portable lithium-ion battery charger.

The iSound Portable Power 8000 packs 8,000 milliamp hours (mAh) of energy for any device that can recharge via USB – that’s enough juice to refuel your iPhone 4S approximately 5 ½ times on a single charge. It also includes a handy LED light for finding your way in the dark.

a diary from my parents when I turned 18 which they wrote out my childhood happenings, experiences, re-actions to events, etc. It was really unique & I treasure it to this day. Like to reflect back on it while raising my children.. thanks mom & dad

The most thoughtful gift that I have ever received, I received last year. I have a 1987 Merkur project car that I've been working on for a couple of years. Last year for Christmas, she had my hood repainted, she bought me a new set of tires and she bought me a brand new Interstate Battery.

I didn't think that she could ever understand how important this car is to me, but she really does understand, and she supports me.

I can't wait to see what she gets me this year, but I know that it won't be an Interstate Battery, since mine is still going strong!

My father's family Bible. It was written in German and no one in our family could read it. His father had abandoned the family when he was 3 years old and the history was lost until many years later when I had someone interpret the handwritten notes inside the covers. There were names, dates of birth/death, and cities lived in. We were able to trace down an entire side of the family no one had any idea existed. I eventually gifted the Bible to my father's only brother on Christmas 2002. :)

My most thoughtful gift was a ring my mom gave me.  It was my dad's Barmitzvah ring.  My dad passed away a few years ago and I still miss him and can't believe he's gone, but the ring is on a necklace that never gets taken off so I always feel like he's close by.
