It doesn’t matter what smartphone you own, if you use it a lot chances are you need to charge it every day. But how can you avoid carrying an iPhone or BlackBerry charger everywhere you go? Check out a few of our tips and tricks to help keep your battery going strong the whole day.
When All Else Fails
To ensure you’ve always got power whether you’re at the office, school, or at a café pick up an additional microUSB cable for travel. Not only will it keep your phone charged up while you work or play, but many models let you sync data between your computer and phone at the same time.
Your car is a perfect spot to charge your smartphone while you commute to work or simply make your way to the grocery store. A car charger with a 12V connector plugs right into your cigarette lighter and offers a fast and easy charge when you’re out and about.
Battery Cases and Packs
Working double duty, a rechargeable battery case or pack is the perfect on-the-go solution. These innovative cases offer solid protection for your smartphone and work to extend the battery life of your phone thanks to an integrated battery so you get additional talk and play time when you need it most. Plus, some models also come with advanced features such as:
- A shockproof construction for maximum protection
- Fashionable designs
- LED indicators to tell you how much power you have left
Portable Wireless Charger and Battery Extenders
If you’re always on the move, portability is a necessity. Portable wireless chargers are the ideal solution since many feature no cords so you can easily connect right to your smartphone – or any other digital device – and power up until you can get to a plug. They’re also small enough to fit in your pocket or bag and give you a limited number of charges, so you’re always good to go.
Get connected to a wall outlet for fast and easy charges with a travel charger. Small enough to fit into any part of your luggage, travelling companions are best for life on the go or when you need to get recharged at the office or in the library.
Back-up Battery Power
When you can’t be near a plug or your computer, back-up battery power devices are perfect. These devices are basically batteries that you can connect to and give you smartphone or another portable device a boost in power when they’re running low. Most models pack a battery that’s larger than most cell phone batteries, so you can charge up and still have some juice left over.
