Power Your Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and Car with Cyntur’s JumperPack Mini

They say you can never have too much money. I don't know if that's true. Shakespeare had King Richard shouting "A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!" I don't ride a horse, but I do have a couple of old convertibles that have had the battery die on occassion, so I can relate. All the money in the world won't help you if your car and phone batteries are dead and nobody is around to help. That's why I was very excited to see the JumperPack mini from Cyntur.

Apple TV (Refurbished) Available for Just $59

image

Just a quick note that refurbished Apple TV units are back in stock at Apple.com. Just a month ago, the Apple TV sold for $99, then dropped to $69. Now, for $59, you can pickup a refurbished one for almost half the original price, thanks to Apple's price drop oand the magic of refurb units! When Apple sells a refurbished device, it comes with a new warranty, and a new shell so there's no need to worry about scratches, fingerprints, etc. Considering that the Apple TV has no moving parts, there is really very little concern about buying a refurbished unit. I've bought three myself, so I can use AirPlay and send my iOS screen to just about any room in the house.
