“Editing the magic performance music, editing photos, videos, communicating with clients — I charge it daily.“
Looking for hybrid power solutions for magicians and tech lovers? Just ask Matt Tran, otherwise known as "Magician Matt," where to find them. Matt spends his days making people smile. He's been performing magic since he was a teenager. And like so many other young adults, he found himself re-assessing his career priorities and ambitions during the pandemic.
Joining the growing ranks of young entrepreneurs, he decided to become a full-time magician and content creator. Matt hits the road frequently to develop an original magic show and make unique content. He never leaves the house without two things — self-confidence and well-prepared equipment.
Live Show Must-Haves
Content creation and magic performances require "a lot of stuff," Matt says. His packing list often includes multiple cameras, a drone, microphones, a Macbook, a tablet, and a smartphone. If something runs out of battery, he needs to charge it fast — especially if that something is his trusty laptop.
"My 14" MacBook Pro — I use it for almost everything," he explains. "Editing the magic performance music, editing photos, videos, communicating with clients — I charge it daily." And because he's on the road, Matt doesn't always have battery backup for a computer.
Before Matt found Omnicharge, he often carried two to three power banks, a portable laptop charger, and all of his equipment. It was "really heavy and messy," he laments. Also, those tiny power banks weren't always enough.
The Importance of a Backup Power Supply
Matt enjoys telling the story of a hike in Japan when he brought all of his camera equipment, including his drone and action camera.
He was enjoying the hike, taking photos and videos of the incredible landscape. Then, as he lifted his primary camera, he found himself face-to-face with every content creator's nightmare — the camera had already run out of all three batteries.
He was in the middle of the Japanese mountains, miles from a power source. So, finally, he had to turn to his iPhone, which couldn't do the stunning landscape justice. He still regrets not having his top-notch camera for the top-notch scenery.
If he had an advanced power solution, he could use his professional-level camera to capture his journey, and the results would be worthy of the landscape.
Staying Powered Up with Omnicharge
Enter Omnicharge, which Matt encountered on Instagram. The Omni 20C+ was the stable high-capacity power solution he'd been looking for, and it was the right size for his on-the-go professional lifestyle. Now, Matt doesn't need to carry multiple power banks, charging bricks, and a separate external laptop battery. Instead, all he has to do is pack the Omni 20C+ and his gallium nitride (GaN) charger, and he's ready to go anywhere.
"I love the pass-through feature so much," Matt says, referring to the 20C+'s ability to charge other devices while charging itself. "The Omni 20C+ can be a power bank daily and an alternative of a power strip at night."
When he returns to his hotel after a long day of performances, he plugs his charger into the wall and connects the Omni 20C+. He can rest easy knowing all his devices and 20C+ will be fully charged the next morning.
Omnicharge is proud to be a part of Magician Matt's journey.
