GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Have you ever left your phone charger in a hotel room or an airport? Have you ever gone to another country and had issues with their power outlets? How about a quick boost in battery strength? Casey Cochran from Genius Phone Repair has some solutions from a company called S-KROSS.

First, there's the BUZZ cable. This interactive charge and  high speed data cable can work with both iPhones and Android phones thanks to its built-in adapter. It also features a built-in alarm that triggers if power is lost or your phone is plugged in too long, protecting your device from overheating.

Then, there's the World Adapter MUV USB. It can give users the ability to plug into unique outlets in 220 different countries. S-KROSS also offers and external battery that has a 5,000 mHh output, enough to fully charge most smartphones twice.

You can find these products at Airport Wireless stores, Brookstone and InMotion.  They're also available online.
