Pockets are very useful things! We keep everything in there from spare change, to our keys, to lint, to an old dryer sheet we forgot to use, to well … everything! Yep, I know, I purposely didn’t say what everyone was thinking: “Uh, you forgot about my phone!”
An astute reader you are! for, in fact, I didn’t include that. Because, with the phone, isn’t there something else you wish you had, but maybe you didn’t know you wish you had? that is, a battery!
Sure, there are battery cases, external batteries, cables galore, at any length you could want — but cables and external batteries don’t fit in your pocket. when you charge a battery case, (which, yes, I hear you, you voracious and astute reader saying, “A battery case fits in your pocket.”), and to that, you would be correct! But then there’s this little issue of, forgetting to charge the case!
A pocket-sized Solution.
Having a battery case for your phone is a marvelous thing. I know I felt my life had been revolutionized in a significant way when I got my first battery case. Until I had to charge the thing. Then it became a choreographic nightmare to try and find an extra plug, with an extra cable, with some extra space on my desk. Yep, there were a lot of extras required!
So the battery case while extremely useful, went to a better home and lives happily ever after charging a friend of mine’s phone. And then, one day, I didn’t know I needed it, until … I needed it! The answer to everything I’d been wondering about; at least in the battery case world, and how best to keep my device charged.
The “Smart Battery Case”
As soon as I was shown this “Smart Battery Case”, I immediately ordered one. This doesn’t make your phone too bulky at all, and the best part, when you plug your phone into charge, the case charges, too!
No extras required, no more wondering: “Did I plug my case in?” That’s what makes it “smart”.
It’s made out of silicone, and comes in 2 colors: white or charcoal gray.
If you have an iPhone 6/6s, you can order the case from Apple
Or, if you have an iPhone 7, you can get the case in the following colors: white, black, or red.
Here it is for your perusal
The case runs for $99 from Apple’s site. If you prefer, you can get it from eBay from between $60-$95. (Note: prices are estimates from eBay).
Your Pocket will Thank You
This case is one I bought about a year ago, and I found it to be one of the most helpful and useful accessories I have purchased to use with my phone. when out and about using GPS, I no longer have to worry about my battery draining during my travels. If I’m using the new
Seeing AI App from Microsoft
which can quickly drain a phone battery due to the heavy use of the camera and the light, I am afforded a much longer time of use with the extended charge. I would say I am able to get 2 days of use out of the phone and the case if necessary. but usually, the case gets me through a day of use, and my iPhone’s battery isn’t depleted much, if at all.
So, do yourselves, your phones, (and pockets), a favor! go get yourself a “smart battery case”!
