Introducing the New EcoSurvivor.com

Posted

We're excited to announce the launch of the newly designed microsite for our EcoSurvivor brand of products. You can check it out now at EcoSurvivor.com! Our team members have worked hard to create a completely new site that's visually engaging and easy to navigate, shop for products, and learn about our story and technology behind EcoSurvivor.

With a growing line of durable LED lighting products, portable power solutions, and audio accessories, we knew we needed a site that not only supported the expanding line of products but also helped support and educates people about the real purpose behind our brand and nonprofit partnerships with Water4 and Justin Wren.

Holiday Shopping Survival Guide–Tips from a Black Friday Veteran

Posted

Which foods do we want to prepare? Which activities do we want to add to the calendar? What gifts will we buy for our loved ones? In my family, Black Friday shopping is a family bonding experience. The children stay at home with Grandpa, and all the adults (siblings and spouses and Grandma) hit the stores. Black Friday used to involve trying to stay warm outside a Best Buy at 3 am, but as the early morning opening hours of previous years slowly moved into the evening hours and then the late afternoon hours of Thanksgiving Day, we’ve had to amend our tactics. But the overall plan remains the same– safely and successfully cross off as many items on our shopping list in one night!

Why you need a 9-foot long USB charging cable in your life

Posted

It's safe to say almost everyone is a heavy smartphone user these days. We stream music, read the news, check social media, communicate with our friends and family and use our phones for tons of other daily tasks. And sometimes your phone's battery just can't make it all the way through the day. That doesn't mean you have to glue yourself to the wall while you recharge. You no longer have to be that person sitting on the floor at the airport, leaving your phone plugged in across the room or twisting yourself into a pretzel to use your phone while it's charging by your bed.

The best solution is to simply upgrade your short USB charging cable to a longer, faster more durable charging cable. It’s a small and easy thing to do that can make a big impact on your daily life. It solves tricky plug placements in airports, coffee shops and even your own home. 

Wondering what cable is your best option? Try the GE 9 ft. USB Sync and Charge Cable.
