Let your phone run wild and free.
Remember when cell phones were the size of bricks? Not even regular-sized bricks, but, like…bricks that were slightly above average. It’s why everything was so baggy in the early 90s. If your phone is the size of a small waffle iron, it makes sense to have pockets that can hold anything. Some were so big that wallets needed chains or else they’d disappear inside forever.
Anyway, between those old phones having giant batteries and them being barely capable of doing anything more than making a phone call on a clear day, the batteries would last like a week and a half until you had to plug them into the car’s cigarette lighter. (We’ve really lost younger readers on this one, probably.)
So you just know that somewhere along the line, phone engineers all sat around a table arguing about whether to give their next new phone more battery or a slimmer profile. It would have been an epic debate, with raw practicality on one side and somebody who really wanted their iPhone 2 or whatever to fit in their skinny jeans on the other. It probably came to blows.
Well, as your current phone’s sexy form factor and constant need to be in Low Power Mode proves, our friend in the skinny jeans won the day and the rest is history. But just imagine, if only your phone were twice as big, the battery life could be crazy good.
These power banks pretty much do that, only without making your phone bulky when you don’t need it to be. And if you really want to strike a compromise on this issue with a backup battery that’s slim and sexy in its own right, just check out today’s bonus deal.
