If you were affected by Hurricaine Matthew last week, or by any storm in the recent past, you know how essential your smart phone was: staying in touch, getting directions and traffic updates, taking “before” and “after” pictures, using the flashlight, receiving emergency notifications, calling tree removal companies, and checking sports scores (they are always essential).
And I’m sure you were justifiably concerned about the battery life of your phone: no battery, no phone.
Many of you, I hope, used your car charger to charge your phone’s battery. Good thinking!
Another gadget you may wish to have is a portable battery charger. When your phone’s battery runs down, plug the portable charger into your phone and use/charge your phone anywhere. Re-charge the charger in your car or when you get to a working outlet.
The one I use is the lipstick-sized, easily-portable charger from Anker.* Worked great for me when I really depended on it.
Just one “powerful” suggestion.
