Battery runtime on mobile phones isn’t what it used to be. I used to charge my cellphone and expect it to run for days before my next charge. But let’s face it, mobile phones aren’t just phones anymore.
Today’s mobile phones, particularly smartphones, have more in common with laptops than they do with cellphones. If you’re like me, you’ve come to this realization long ago and use your iPhone as you would your laptop. And, because it does practically everything that a laptop can do, minus the bulk and weight, it’s probably become your only mobile computing device.
However, this level of performance also draws power too, giving me the same mediocre battery life I would get from my laptop. If you’re looking for a way to keep your iPhone 5 running all day, while leaving all the charging accessories at home, I’ve found an integrated battery case to be the best solution.
For people like myself who have a horrible sense of direction, or simply hate to ask for directions, driving to a desired location has never been easier. GPS navigation has, for the most part, taken the planning and guess work out of finding a route to where I need to go. However, one area of turn-by-turn direction that In-Dash and Mountable GPS systems continue to fumble with, is building routes around the unpredictability of traffic and conditions on the road.
If you’re buying a car or just shopping for a Mountable GPS Device, consider the following before you plunk down that small fortune to add that fancy navigational system to your dashboard: There are far better and less expensive solutions available. One in particular I’ve found to be fantastic…
After Apple’s recent change from the nearly decade old 30 pin dock connector to the new and more adaptable Lightning connector, much demand for new Speaker Docks have been on the rise.
While an integrated speaker and charging station has its utility value, I’ve found “Speaker Docks” often to be accessories with limited versatility or packed with features redundant to the ones found on the iPhones themselves.
Devices are more mobile – which in turn, make us more mobile.
If you’re like me, you have a bag full of battery powered gadgets. If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve undoubtedly noticed a recurring gadget from my bag that is a battery called the Mophie Powerstation. It’s often mentioned for its ability to charge all my other gadgets on the go. But, like all my other gadgets, it too may need a charge on the way to where I’m going.
Get A Car Charger… But Which One?
A friend asked me to help him choose which car adapters to purchase for his smartphone and tablet. We went through adapters specific to each device before I finally recommended The Incase Mini Car Charger (or chargers like it) because of these winning features…
Today, there are numerous gadgets and applications that work to help us accomplish our day to day tasks with little to no physical effort. These technologies enable busy professionals and parents like myself to do more in our day. However, these same conveniences can sometimes instead help to promote a sedentary lifestyle.
As it turns out, there are an increasing number of gadgets and apps that work to promote an active lifestyle through quantifying the physical exertion you do make and rewarding you for doing more.
The Nike+ FuelBand and it’s accompanying web and iPhone software is Nike’s answer to the growing demand for devices and services that help to motivate activity, track progress, and reward the user for the effort.
Today’s mobile devices are feature packed and in many ways as capable as the computers sitting on our desk.
Performance such as this requires power – a lot of it. Depending on how you use your Smartphone, your device’s battery may not carry you through the day.
For devices that have no removable battery, this could be a dilemma. Fortunately, numerous brand solutions are available. Typically these come in the form of an Integrated Battery Case you keep your Device inside or an External Battery Pack you plug your device into.
