How to Charge Your Mobile Device

Yes, I happen to record videos while driving. I keep two hands on the wheel and four eyes on the road at all times, thank you very much! I begin recording while stopped and end the video while again stopped. I simply edit out the parts before and after. It’s not unsafe as some of you are claiming, and I tend to have some decent thoughts while driving. Why not take that opportunity to create something I can share with all of you?

A community member recently asked when the best time is to charge a mobile phone. The best time to charge is when the battery is about as close to zero as humanly possible. You don’t want to keep the device tethered if it runs on batteries. That can be cause more drain than necessary.

I like to intentionally run my battery down to near death about once per week and then charge it fully. I always leave it plugged in at least a half an hour past the time the phone claims it’s at 100%.

I have learned that if I don’t charge my phone every night, I will be disappointed the next day. I have a cord plugged into the wall next to my bed. The iPhone sits on my nightstand and charges overnight, leaving it ready to go every morning when I wake up.

There are a lot of great battery charging or extending devices on the market. I’ve done several reviews on external batteries for the iPhone, and have given you a ton of options. You’ll find that the Richard|Solo option will make you very happy. You can also check out the Lenmar External Battery or the PowerBlock Reserve from our friends at Griffin.

How and when do you charge your mobile device?

How Do You Recharge Your Device Batteries?

The worst-named product in gadget history also happens to be the most awesome ever. You use devices all day long which run on battery. What happens when you run out of batteries? Why not use a 5000mAh Battery Charger? It will quickly and easily charge just about anything you can think of.

Yes, the name is horrible. But this is an awesome product. I use it. I was shocked a few days ago. I needed to use my iPhone and ran out of battery. I plugged this in and used it for more than twenty-four hours while connected to this device.

I don’t think you’ll find another external battery that connects via USB. 5000MaH is a LOT. It can charge any number of devices, making sure you are connected all the time.

How to Double the Life of Your iPhone 3G Battery

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Those of us with iPhone 3Gs certainly know the pain and frustration of having no battery left. I misplaced my iPhone earlier, so I tried calling it. It didn’t work, since the battery was dead. I wish I had a battery pack sitting on it all the time. In the past, I have reviewed various types of packs and batteries that can be used with the iPhone. Thankful, the Mophie Juice Pack is now available for the iPhone 3G.

Juice Pack 3G is specially designed for iPhone 3G and has passed the strict over-the-air performance tests by an Apple designated test lab. As a result, the Mophie Juice Pack 3G has been officially certified by Apple Inc. as a “Work with iPhone 3G” product!

Mophie Juice Pack 3G also uses Apple designated connector, which can only be ordered through Apple’s certified vendors. This ensures its 100% compatibility with your iPhone 3G.

The Juice Pack is a rechargeable lithium polymer battery in the form of a non-slip, soft grip case.

The Juice Pack works very well, that’s for sure. However, it doesn’t give me the Macro lens slide-over that I love so much on my current iPhone case. For me, it’s a matter of do I want the Macro lens, or to double the life of my battery. The Juice Pack will definitely get a lot of use, though. If you are looking to extend your battery – to double its current charge – the Mophie Juice Pack is just what the doctor ordered.
