Giving away a Genius Energy Mouse + 8000mAh Powerbank!

Hey guys! I’m giving away a Genius Energy Mouse. The tech industry is fond of hybrid gadgets. Genius for instance went above and beyond the curve to design a wireless mouse with one additional feature: it doubles as a 2000mAh charger for your smartphone.

The Genius giveaway is part of my Father’s Day #DearDadPH contest. To win this, simply tweet a sweet message to your father using the hashtag #DearDadPH. Contest ongoing till June 15. Check out the link for the full mechanics and prizes.

The problem with most RFID mice is that they require AAA batteries to operate. Because the Energy Mouse is also a charger, it gets its juice from a micro USB cable, which is a tad more convenient than rummaging for batteries. The back of the mouse has the USB port for your smartphone.

In terms of performance, the mouse itself fits well on a medium sized palm. I’ve been using mice under the Elephant brand for the past 2 years — they’re more meant for gaming. Switching was no problem.

For those wondering, 2000mAh is roughly a full charge for most mid-range smartphones so the Energy Mouse is really meant for emergency purposes. In my use, it is a mouse, first and a charger, second.

If you’re after something with a much bigger charge, I’m also excited to give away a 8000mAh Powerbank from Genius! That’s right! Be one of the lucky winners in our #DearDadPH contest and you get to keep both the Energy Mouse and the 8000mAh Powerbank for you and your dad! How’s that for a great Father’s Day gift?

The 8000mAh portable charger from Genius can charge two devices (one using USB 2.0) simultaneously. That’s roughly 2 days worth of juice stored in this thing.
