Thank you to OCTAVE for sending me the Battpak for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
As travel restrictions ease, I’m so excited to venture out again. While I’ll remain within the US for my first two trips, I hope to travel to Scotland before year’s end.
This year, I intend to experience solo travel. I enjoy traveling with others. And I’m also looking forward to discovering how I do on my own, setting my own pace, following where my heart leads me.
Exploring on my own is one of the reasons I’m thrilled about this new product. I can travel securely with a Battpak.
When You Need a Charge
When my sister and I traveled to Scotland in 2019, I borrowed a portable battery charger from my son-in-law. How convenient it was to pop that battery pack in my purse and set off to wander the streets of Edinburgh.
I rely on my phone for taking photos and sending texts and looking up info while I explore. The last thing I want is for my phone to die while I’m away from my plug in charger.
I discovered how easy it was to connect my phone to the portable battery and drop both into my purse while I walked or rode on the hop on/hop off bus. It kept my phone ready to snap photos and prevented an unwanted return trip to the apartment in the middle of the day, to charge my phone.
Now…what if I could carry just ONE item that took the place of my wallet and purse and battery charger, while I’m out adventuring? That would be super convenient, right?
Travel Securely With a Battpak
The Battpak by OCTAVE is perfect for the traveler. It’s also ideal for the parent who has his or her hands busy with kids while out on family adventures. And it’s the right item to take along to concerts, festivals or museums.
It’s a portable battery charger, first of all, with a high quality 10,000 mAh battery for charging cell phones quickly and efficiently. The Battpak has a custom pcba circuit board for universal charging and USB and USB type-C outputs plus a USB type-C input.
A handstitched vegan leather cover surrounds the fire retardant polycarbonate housing. The pack is slightly bigger than my iPhone Plus, making it simple to slip into a pocket, backpack or purse.
Those stats make this battery charger a superior product. And yet…there’s more. It’s the surprise feature that makes this charger so unique.
What I love about the Battpak is the secret compartment within.
Drop the Battpak or toss it onto a table and it’s not going to open. There’s a trick to opening the unit. It’s not difficult to get into, however someone who happened to pick it up would not realize there is a compartment inside.
Pop open the Battpak and discover the security this portable charger provides.
Inside is a roomy wallet for credit cards, money, keys or papers. There are pockets to tuck cards into. And a strap to hold straws, folded money or any other small item that you might want to take along on your journeys.
The deeper compartment with the sleek metal tray allows room for bigger items such as keys, tins with ibuprofen. a pen or a charging cord.
For an afternoon out with the kids or a full day of exploring a new city, the Battpak is the perfect take along item.
Get Your Battpak
The Battpak makes a wonderfully thoughtful gift for Father’s Day. It’s also a special birthday or holiday gift for the traveler in your family or for the adventurous parents who enjoy hiking with their kids.
This convenient battery charger/travel safe means you can charge up your phone ANYWHERE and stash your important items while on the go.
You can get your Battpak from the company website HERE. Use my code, CINDY15 for 15% off of your order.
I’ve used the Battpak at home to charge my phone. It works so well.
However, I’m especially excited to take it with me on upcoming trips. I like the idea of dropping my cell phone in one pocket and the Battpak in another as I set out to explore. There’s no purse dangling off of my shoulder, for someone to snag as they trot by. I’ll tuck some cash, a card and a cord in the Battpak, along with any other necessities I might need. And I’ll feel secure.
That sense of security allows me to focus on what’s important…taking in the sights around me, snapping photos and soaking up new experiences.
Where will you go with your Battpak? I’ll share my first destination…soon!

How convenient to have the secret pocket built-in. I’m like you not wanting to carry a purse while adventuring.
Dang you’re going to Scotland again? Can you take me? LOL! It’s seriously #1 on my bucket list and I can’t wait to get there. That’s exciting you’re going to try traveling solo, too. And the Battpak would make a great Father’s Day gift! Looking forward to seeing more of your travels!
