Midweek Madness, Win one of FIVE ZAGGsparq portable chargers ($500 worth of prizes!)

We’re back with another installment of Midweek Madness aimed at fixing up that lame, sagging middle-section of even the most boring week. If you missed it, yesterday we launched our holiday Android Gift Guide and today we’re continuing on that theme, featuring a prize ripped right from the pages of the gift guide.

While most of us know ZAGG from their awesome line of invisibleSHIELDs, they also make a mean portable charger. And today we’ve got FIVE ZAGGsparqs 2.0 units up for grabs! The ZAGGsparq looks like a regular wall plug but is actually packing a full 6000 mAh battery, enough juice to charge your device multiple times.

Personally I think this thing would be worth owning just so you could confuse your friends when you plug it into your phone and draw a charge from thin air. But if you’re interested in all the nitty gritty, you can get the full specs on the ZAGG site.

How to win

Since we’ve got FIVE of these things to give away, we thought we could split things up a bit. There are three ways to win today, as described below:

  • Leave a comment on this post. (Two winners)
  • Leave a comment on the gift guide. (Two winners)
  • Tweet about the contest using the hash #midweekmadness. (One winner)

Again, to make things easy for the lazy (including myself) I’m going to add a tweet box right to this post. If you want to enter the Twitter portion of this contest, feel free to hop in below: (tweet box removed)

To summarize, for the skimmers

We’ve got FIVE of these units from ZAGG. Two for commenters on this post, two for commenters on the gift guide, and one for a random tweet with #midweekmadness in it.

And if you’re still on the hunt for the perfect Android gifts of the best Android phones on any carrier, check out our full list over in the Android Gift Guide. We’ll announce the winners tomorrow morning. Now bring on the comments and tweets!

UPDATE: And we’ve picked our winners! So, to Sean, Michael, Lance, Kalil, and David: check your inboxes! And enjoy the rad charger from ZAGG.

    I picked up a no-name device like this before i went to Iraq. It had a smaller battery and was still a great little box to have. Charging phone and ipod with one device was great. Then on the road now worries phone, ipod or camera they were all charged when I needed to not when I “could” I wish I never lost that little box,and I never found another similar box until now…

    Hook me up?
