Today’s gadgets, from smartphones, laptops, smartwatches, and even electronic readers all have one thing in common – frequent charging. It is an inevitable part of your daily routine. If you want to keep using your gadgets, you have to accept the fact that you have to charge them regularly. In fact, it may even be an essential part of your daily routine already.
Some batteries last longer than others; and depending on use, you may see yourself charging daily, weekly, or monthly basis. The fact remains – you will be spending a lot of your time dragging chargers and cords around.
Charging your devices can take a long time. What can you do to make this process easier?
A Minimized Setup
There are a few ways to make life easier when charging. Having a universal USB charging cord can minimize the cables you need with you. A universal USB charger cord can connect to devices with different ports. This means that a singular USB cord can plug into your various devices. Instead of bringing each gadget’s accessories, you only have to bring one. This is extremely helpful especially when you have multiple devices that require frequent charging.
Money in the Bank
Another way to help make charging easier is with power banks. Power banks act as a mobile charging station for your devices. With it, you can charge your items on the go. This can be helpful if you do not have time to sit around a socket and wait for a full battery. With a power bank, you can simply plug the gadget, place it on your bag, and be on your way. The power bank transfers its stored energy into your device, giving it new life. Of course, the power bank itself would require charging as well.
Combine a power bank with a universal USB cord and you can easily charge all your items with one source using one cord.
Sometimes, charging is not an option. It could be because someone travels a lot, being outdoors most of the time, or even due to having no time in their schedule. A smartphone may take up to an hour to charge completely. Then you also have to deal with charging your other devices. A power bank also has a very limited charge capacity. At most, you will be looking at a couple of full charges for your phone. What if that is not enough to make your phone last the whole day?
You need to micromanage your devices.
To help manage this workload, setting up power saving options may help extend their battery. Most mobile devices often have power saving modes on their settings. A lot of them even have preset options where all you have to do is activate them. These modes shut down the majority of function on your device, only leaving the bare essentials. This helps preserve battery life and keep it from draining completely.
