My mobile device is my favorite gadget.
They are always with me and they are entangled with my life in many ways.
It\'s a wonderful thing to reach the collective knowledge of humanity at your fingertips, and I think we take it for granted.
During the holidays, my family discussed the changes in home car travel.
In the past, if someone asked, \"How far is it from the moon ? \"?
\"One of us either knows and gives the answer, or everyone shrugs and keeps going.
Now, you\'re just saying, Siri, how far is the moon from Earth?
\"You already have the answer before you shrug --
About 358,000 kilometers.
The way we use mobile devices is also changing.
As screens grow larger and tablets become more common, we consume more and more content.
It is normal to watch TV and movies now.
The Internet is also getting faster and faster.
Mobile is a \"more\" market.
\"Our mobile devices are powerful.
Because of Moore\'s law, our technology is developing at an amazing speed.
Moore\'s Law believes that computing power will double every 18 months.
However, an important part of technology has not developed so rapidly.
This is a technology that has existed since the beginning of 1800.
This is one we are all very familiar.
It\'s a battery problem.
With our devices equipped with more powerful processors, screens, radios and a variety of new features, there is a growing demand for power.
This is probably the biggest weakness of all mobile devices today.
This is undoubtedly my biggest setback.
There\'s nothing worse than seeing your phone warn you of low power consumption at only 11. m.
It\'s not always convenient to have to stay where you are when your phone is plugged into the wall.
They are not exactly mobile devices when you have to insert them.
This problem is especially problematic when you are traveling in another country.
If mobile network coverage is intermittent, your phone will try to establish a link to the mobile network, which does consume battery power.
I see this problem on every phone I have.
Fortunately, in a place where there is pain in the market, there are entrepreneurs who apply some clever engineering and marketing to this problem.
A company in California called Mophie has been designing battery packs and battery boxes for iphone and Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
I used a Mophie Juicepack Plus case on my iPhone 4S for the first time.
It works very well, but it makes the phone very heavy.
Still, it always allows me to do a day of phone use without plugging in.
But now, Mophie has just released a magical external battery pack called Powerstation XL.
This little brick
Like the equipment, there is rubber on the top and bottom, and metal surround on the edge.
It looks smooth and is built strong.
But within it makes it necessary-
Accessories for mobile users.
It has a 12,000 battery and is able to charge both devices at the same time.
You can charge your phone and tablet at the same time, or you can share the battery with your friends.
Because it has two standard USB 2.
0 connection, you can plug in almost everything charged through USB.
I have traveled with this equipment and it works very well.
My own experience is that charging my phone is faster than charging the air-conditioned socket on the wall.
Thanks to its very large capacity, you can get a few full charges from the Powerstation XL.
Some have reported that it charges their mobile devices eight times before it needs to be plugged into the wall.
Another thing that distinguishes this charging solution from other cheaper solutions is (
Mophie power station XL retails for $129. 95)
Is the internal intelligence of managing batteries.
It has very good retention and it is reported that the life of the battery pack is very good.
This is important because all rechargeable batteries will eventually start to fade and lose the ability to keep charging.
The Powerstation XL is small enough to be carried in a wallet or backpack, and it saves its expenses well.
Even if you only use it in an emergency, being with you is a great asset.
Every smartphone is a magical gateway to the world of knowledge and entertainment.
But it only works when it has power.
Life is too short to hold a dead smartphone.
This is my first New Year\'s resolution. Happy New Year!
