Despite their once-revered sleek design and fancy carrying cases, bag phones are simply no longer practical. Thanks to Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, we can now take our phones and other mobile devices just about anywhere we go. We maximize this portability on a daily basis, no longer tied-down, attached to the wall outlets we once relied on for power. Just consider the notion of what it would be like if we were unable to take our laptops and tablets with us to coffee shops, on planes, or just to log-in from home. It seems virtually inconceivable in this day and age, doesn’t it?
Stopping by a Batteries Plus Bulbs location is always a good option if there’s one nearby. However, when a store isn’t easily accessible, it’s nice to have an alternative power source to count on. Here are some excellent USB-adaptable products that offer reliable backup power with the flexibility of charging our highly-necessary mobile electronics on-the-go :
1. Perform shallow discharges – although there is no “memory effect” associated with these batteries, draining them frequently will diminish their lifespan
2. Avoid full charging too long and too often – leaving a device plugged into a wall charger long after it’s charged to 100% will degrade it’s longevity
3. Perform full discharges monthly – today’s “smart batteries” need to re-calibrate by being fully spent every 30 days or so, which will reset its internal clock
4. Keep cool – heat will do more damage to a battery than anything else
