Congrats to Tami M. of North Mankato, Minn., for winning a Zooka speaker bar in last week's Crave giveaway.

Ever found yourself with several gadgets that need recharging when you aren't in a position to juice them all up? This week's giveaway's got the power to help.

The MyCharge Portable Power Bank 6000 is a high-capacity 6000mAh rechargeable battery pack that can simultaneously fuel products including smartphones, iPads, e-readers, and Bluetooth headsets. It comes with Micro- and Mini-USB plugs, plus an Apple dock connector and a full-size USB port, meaning it can power a whole lot of different devices. Handy when the gang's on a camping trip and all the working tree outlets are taken.

Charging party! MyCharge

As for the device's own battery life, MyCharge says the power bank will power the average smartphone four times, charge an iPad nearly full, and top off e-readers before it needs its own boost. "Experience 27 more hours of talk time (3G), 30 more hours of Wi-Fi, up to 34 more hours of video or up to 134 hours of music," MyCharge says.

The pack can be plugged into a wall outlet for recharging and offers voice notifications that indicate remaining battery power and charging status.

Normally, the MyCharge Portable Power Bank 6000 power pack would drain you of $99.99, but you have the chance to get one for free. How? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
