Gone are the days of your smart phone battery draining as you’re in the middle of a city trying to follow maps to your destination. No more getting in trouble with your significant other because your cell battery died whilst you were at that party and couldn’t call to check in.
Thanks to phone case charger technology, we now have the ability to almost double the smart phone battery lives which guarantee that we can remain online for longer and stay connected.
In a world with big demands where we are always online we can no longer afford to be let down by our technology, such is the importance of the role they provide.
There are a host of great cases on the market which appeal to different people, however, we don’t intend to review any cases here as that’s been done many times already.
Instead, we’ll take a look at the innovative charging technology used in these cases and decipher how they work and how well they perform in the real world.
How Does Phone Case Charger Technology Work?
The case themselves have a built in charge that is the equivalent of a full charge so it’s ready to be tapped into at any point you need some juice. With the ability to transfer power to your phone periodically throughout the day, it will keep you up and running all day.
The cases have a battery on button usually on the reverse of the smart phone and many wait until 90% of the battery life has been drained before they switch on their backup battery and begin charging.
The built in battery remains constantly connected so when you charging your phone via a USB or a wall charger it also recharges the battery case which removes the trouble of having to charge two items separately. Another nice feature is that when you charge your phone in the case the phone takes priority and the charger only begins to recharge itself once the handset is already at 100%.
Although phone cases look more aesthetically pleasing than they once did, they do make your phone a little fatter but on the plus side they protect the phone from drops which can easily crack a screen.
The average extra life span a phone case charger will provide you is around 5-6 hours extra which equates to an additional 75% – 90% life – not bad for cases which cost around $100.
The phones connect to the case battery using the regular charging port that a wall charger attaches to.
Switching the case chargers on and off is easy thanks to toggle technology which is simple and effective.
Some models include the ability to remove the battery pack from the charger case which gives you the opportunity to carry multiple spare batteries with you to protect you should you run through your phone battery and the additional case battery. This could be particularly useful if you’re camping or anywhere where you don’t have access to electricity for a sustained period of time.
The only downside of that is that you may lose the spare batteries or not want to carry them with you but on the whole that’s a minor point bearing in mind the flexibility afforded to you.
I’d rather keep it on my phone at all times so that I don’t lose track of the thing.
Phone case chargers are a relatively new technology along with other methods such as wireless charging. Ultimately, both seek to solve the same problem – being powerless when you need it.
With our phones being used for every facet of our waking life (alarm, notes, calendar, calls, emails, activity tracking, diet tracking, music etc) and even our sleep period (alarm, sleep tracking app, relaxation audio, sleep hypnosis apps etc) we simply can’t live without them anymore.
It’s clear that the technology is here to stay and until we fight a more convenient way to charge up our smart phones when on the go, charging cases are going to prevail.
This could just be the biggest leap in smart phone innovation for a very long time.
