Friends and family know how paranoid I get concerning low battery problems on my smartphone, including my other gadgets.
That pretty much explains why I carry a ton of power banks in my sling bag every single time I’m away from home. A ton of power banks is in no way an exaggeration. On any given time, I’ve got 4-5 high capacity power banks to supply every device my family uses.
But there are times wherein you just feel like traveling light especially when gadget usage isn’t too demanding.
That’s why when the Native Union Jump Cable was introduced to the market, I immediately jumped on the opportunity to have one.
I’m always on the lookout for cool devices and gadgets… not to mention power banks that extend the battery life of your smartphone therefore furthering your productivity throughout the day.
I know how some of you aren’t too keen on bringing a bulky external power bank. But then again, sometimes we don’t have a choice especially when you know that you’ll be away from a power outlet for quite a long time. There’s quite a selection of power bank cases in the market for the iPhone 5. But what about for Android devices?
When it comes to these kinds of gadgets, more often than not, it’s all about portability and ease of use.
So, whenever I chance upon useful and share-worthy devices, I make sure to blog about it and let my readers know about it.
The Phonesuit Flex is fairly new to the market. And though it comes at a time when there are already a ton of power bank selections available and being sold all over, it brings to the table a few nifty advantages and features.
Even the best smartphone, without power, is only as useful as a paperweight.
That being said, there are a few things you can do to maximize your smartphone’s power. Here are a few vital battery saving tips I’ve learned throughout the years of using various kinds of smartphones.
For anyone who wants their device to last throughout the day, you may find some of these tips useful…
If you’re looking to get a portable bluetooth speaker that you could easily pair with your smartphone… or if you’re on the lookout to purchase a music dock alternative, you’re gonna want to read this post.
What I have right now is called the “Sound Kick” by SOUNDFREAQ.
The Sound Kick is an impressive carry-along bluetooth speaker that not only looks good, but delivers awesome sound quality based on tons of user experiences and various reviews.
Peter Parker once said, “With great power comes great responsibility…”
But with “great responsibility”, one needs “great power” as well…! By great responsibility, I mean that toxic and overwhelming load of work one usually does on his/her smartphone and tablet such as working on business correspondences, creating documents, sending and answering text messages, surfing and, yes, perhaps even doing a loads of video calls. With a ton of things to accomplish, you cannot simply rely on your device’s standard battery power. You will never even make it past 6 hours before your gadget goes kaput.
Thankfully, we now have external power banks to save us from the occasional rush to the nearest electrical outlet to recharge our devices. Power banks come in different capacities so it really depends on personal preference and need. But what if you need a power bank that will keep up with even the heaviest of users? Is there a power bank that can provide an abundance of juice?
When the iPhone 5 came out, it took a good long while before 3rd party manufacturers came up with external power banks and other accessories that required the use of Apple’s new Lightning cable.
If I remember right, there were compatibility issues at first. There were instances wherein an iPhone 5 unit would simply refuse to charge using a non-Apple manufactured Lightning connector.
Unlike iPhone 5’s predecessors like the 4/4S wherein power bank cases would readily be available in the market as soon as the Apple phones are released, reputable power bank case manufacturers took a substantial amount of time before coming up with their very own offerings for this particular model.
The first few hybrid power bank cases designed for the iPhone 5 that started popping up were the ones found in Tutuban. Some of these devices didn’t even have a brand and some sported a name that seemed to be whipped up by some dumb dork (you know what I mean). These accessories had subpar workmanship and very poor quality. Personally, why risk an expensive piece of equipment on a power bank case that obviously looks suspect?
Finally, one of my trusted brands when it comes to power banks and power bank cases, MiLi, has released the much awaited Power Spring 5. Unlike MiLi’s previous model, the Power Spring 4 (for the iPhone 4/4S), the Power Spring 5 is significantly thinner and lighter.
With 2200mAh of power, the Power Spring 5 can fully charge your iPhone 5 from 0-100% and still have an extra 40-50% of juice.
I’m a power junkie… any iPhone 5 owner probably is.
When I’m on location during my teleserye tapings, we spend more time waiting on the set than the time spent acting in front of the camera. So, how do we while the hours away? We rely on our phones to keep us busy and to save us from boredom.
The minute my iPhone 5’s battery hits the 80% mark, I get a bit restless. When it drops to 50%, my peace of mind leaves the room. It’s one of the worst feelings, don’t you agree?
The iPhone 5 is an awesome phone… it’s pretty much a portable office, gaming console and entertainment system rolled into one. But that versatility comes at a price. It takes a huge toll on its battery. And no matter how much Apple tries to improve their iOS devices on the aspect of power consumption, we iOS users want more juice.
We end up bringing our chargers and cables hoping to find an electrical outlet nearby so we can charge our gadgets every chance we get. But we are always on the lookout for better ways to keep our iPhones away from that dreaded “red battery” icon.
So, is there a better way to keep our iPhone 5s juiced up? Hell, yeah!
In case you aren’t aware yet, a NEW #chuckiegiveaway has just started and is currently ongoing!
