The All-Day Battery

Basically, every day is the same. I wake up, I get ready for the day, I grab my phone, I grab my Mophie, and I’m off. About halfway through the day, my phone dies and my Mophie saves me. I get home and I charge both devices to get ready for the next day.

First of all, it’s ridiculous that Apple isn’t in this business themselves. I know that they want to portray the notion that the iPhone battery is “good enough”, but it’s not. I’m not saying it’s bad. It’s just not adequate for a full day of usage for many people. And I’m not sure what’s so wrong with admitting that and offering solutions to “power users”.

And, of course, it’s hardly just Apple. Basically every smartphone aside from a few which are mediocre devices, lacks a battery that is adequate for the modern needs of a power user. Just amongst my friends (again, mainly power users), roughly half seem to carry around a battery charger on most days.

Want #2 this morning. The Mophie Juice Pack Helium is apparently 13 percent thinner than the Mophie Air version that was popular for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S (you’d hope so, with more back surface area on the iPhone 5 meaning more battery space). And it should give you a full battery charge.

Since the launch of the iPhone 5, I’ve been using the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation, which is great, but requires a cable.

Anonymous asked:

Do you use a case on your iphone 5? If so, which one? If not, do you not care about scratches or are you just careful enough not to scratch it up much? Merry christmas and thanks.

I do not use a case. If and when Mophie releases a battery pack case for the iPhone 5, I’ll probably use that from time to time. But generally I’m okay living with a few scuffs here and there — though yes, I am also fairly careful.
