Cures for Charge Anxiety

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — From browsing Facebook to texting or even making calls, cell phones are a lifeline to the outside world. But, no matter how smart your phone is, if the battery is dead, there isn’t much you can do with it.

Throughout the years technology behind phones have greatly improved introducing features like 4G data connections, multi-core processors and bigger and brighter screens. And though impressive, these features demand a lot from the battery.

“I have a wall charger ready to go and multiple batteries to charge throughout the day,” said Renee Barrett, a consultant in Los Angeles. “I usually have five total batteries that are always at varying charges.”

Like many of us, Barrett can’t stand the idea of being in the red.

And with no permanent fix in the horizon, heavy phone users like Barrett may have to turn to alternative solutions.

Seeing there is a need, entrepreneur Jeffrey Maganis created a simple fix.

“It’s basically ten (charging outlets) in one,” Maganis said describing his invention. “Everything from the iPhone, Android, Blackberries, even Nintendo DSs for the kids and so literally it’s called ‘Charge All.'”

Maganis hopes to get the charging station in restaurants and bars everywhere.

“In an ideal world there would be free cell phone chargers everywhere,” said Maganis.

Jose Barba, owner of Hollywood Corner, likes the idea of a universal charging station and has installed several of them in his business.

“People think it’s great,” Barba said. “It helps make my customers happy, makes them stay here longer, so I think this is brilliant.”

Constantly mobile? Not near an charging station? There’s still hope.

For Android devices, apps like Juice Defender can squeeze out some extra battery life while iPhone cases like the Mophie juice pack have an extra battery built right in.

Also of note, remember that one of the worst things you can do is to let your battery completely die before recharging. Instead, try to recharge when it reaches about 20 percent.

Battery technology has a lot of catching up to do, and apps and extended batteries, though useful, are hardly permanent fixes. Which means, for now the best seats at the airport are still near outlets and a car charger is a must.

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard
    to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where
    to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks

    Howdy! This article couldn’t be written any better! Reading
    through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept talking about this. I’ll forward this information to him.
    Pretty sure he’ll have a very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

    Once again the Liberal mindset discovers in that they think they are smarter
    than anybody else. Google introduced and discussed the Knowledge
    Graph in a blog post on 16 May 2012. They might keep
    visiting it over and over or a lot of them might mention it to their friends and relatives.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
    violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know
    any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.
