No More Low Battery Worries
It’s become immortalised in memes as the greatest first world problem, but the reality of a low or worse yet, flat phone battery, can be crippling.
Australians simply can’t live without their smartphones. We use them for work, for school, to keep tabs on our kids, to juggle our social lives, and as a major source of entertainment. We’re so addicted to them that 7.3 million Australian smartphone owners agree with the statement "I can’t live without my mobile phone". That’s 30% of the population and half of all smartphone owners". Whether we’re tied to our phones or not, we now live in a culture of connectivity and are expected to be completely contactable at all times. For many of us we also live under the shadow of what may happen if we don’t have our phones – the now familiar FOMO or fear of missing out.
Right, wrong or neutral, the reality is that smartphones are here to stay and for most of us we’re just looking to optimise our experience. One of the biggest obstacles to our experience is how long our phone can last before having to be recharged. Even with battery life improving with each new model, moderate to heavy use takes it toll on our smartphone, keeping us cautiously watching the percentage fall. While it is advisable to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for managing power consumption and use low power modes, it is just good sense to keep a back-up on hand for when we can’t get to the wall socket.
Power banks offer the security you’re looking for to keep your phone charged. Keep one in your pocket or bag so you can charge your phone anywhere, anytime. A good quality power bank is lightweight and small and can fully charge a smartphone 2-3 times before needing a recharge of its own.
Now you can confidently step out into each day without the fear of missing that important business call, the latest celebrity gossip, or the Bulbasaur you’re after in Pokemon Go. By carrying a power bank you will extend your phone battery and gain peace of mind.
