It’s probably happened to all of us. If you ever say it hasn’t happened to you, you’re probably in denial, have never left the house, are so extremely careful that you probably have obsessive-compulsive disorder, or you don’t own a cell phone or other portable gadget. Not sure what I’m talking about? Even now I can sense that a long “ah” will evolve in your head as soon as I tell you that you’ve probably run out of battery power on your cell phone or other portable gadget while you were away from home at one time in the past.
So have you? I can guess that the answer is probably yes, and it most likely has happened more than once – and might even be an ongoing issue. Thinking back, didn’t you wish back then that there were public electrical outlets everywhere where you could plug in a charger so that you could make that call you really needed to make or reply to that text message you really needed to reply to? We’ll I’m here to tell you that although the title of my post is “You’ll Never Run Out of It Away From Home Again,” I’m not here to announce that they will indeed be making sure that there are public electrical outlets everywhere specifically for charging cell phones and/or other mobile devices. But I am here to tell you that with the right equipment and proper preparation, never running out of battery power away from home ever again can quite easily be achieved.
Recently, advancements in battery technology in China have allowed the manufacturing giant to become more competitive in the world of electronics. As you may well know by now, China produces a lot of electronic gadgets that are marketed and used the world over, whether it be cell phones, laptops, tablets, MP4 and MP5 players, you name it, China has been producing it. But until only recently, the battery life of most Chinese electronic devices hasn’t been very good, forcing some Chinese inventors and engineers to look for other alternatives. It was because of this that the portable power charger was born.
Portable power chargers are little devices, about the size of an external HD drive with powerful batteries big enough to charge portable devices. The come in a variety of sizes and specifications. Some portable power chargers can charge a variety of gadgets. There are chargers that are built to charge PSPs. And there are even specifically designed chargers for the iPhone that simply connect to the docking port, continually providing the extra power it will need – some of these are chargers that look like iPhone cases.
You can never go wrong by carrying a portable power charger around. Nothing is better than the assurance that even if you run out of power watching movies on a transcontinental flight, perhaps, you can still charge your cellphone on the go and have enough power once you get to your destination to stay connected with family and friends, as well as whoever it is you will be meeting there. The best thing about portable power chargers is that they are relatively cheap, never really exceeding $70 from any Chinese wholesaler online.
