The Secret to Keeping Your Phone Charged During the Day
My Phone is Dying! What Do I do Next?
Your charger is at home, you are not in your car, yet you need your phone. The answer, a handy dandy portable charger you can keep in your pocket, purse or briefcase. No need for a car charger or AC outlet. How cool is that?!
If you are like many people your phone is not just for talking to people throughout the day, it is a mini computer, your gateway to Netflix, your GPS navigator, and MP3 music player all in one. Many of these apps are battery hogs and suck battery power leaving it gasping before the day is over.
My son, who just recently moved to Chicago, learned living in a big city drains your phone battery faster than normal as his phone is constantly competing with signal and data from millions of other users. By the time he gets out of classes his phone is dead at the end of the day when he commutes home. Only took a week before he bought a battery pack to stick in his pocket.
So how do you get through the day with battery power to spare?
Other than killing applications throughout the day or not using your phone the only other option is to carry an alternative charging station, or portable charger. The Anker Astro charger is ranked #1 on Amazon for a reason, it will hold a charge long enough for seven phone charges without having to be recharged again. It even has enough juice to fully charge an iPad.
To quote their sight it's the "..biggest, baddest battery in the Anker line.." and they are not shy when it comes to bragging about their lithium battery line of chargers.
