      What's New! — battery charger

      'Tis The Season To Be Stressed...

      It’s been a while since I’ve been here and much has happened.  Most obviously, the summer has zipped by and we are well into winter now with Christmas only around the corner. 

      Remember when it was still August and every major high street store seemed to bring out their Christmas decorations on the same day?  How I scoffed at the comercialisation of a holiday that is meant to be about family, friends and the spirit of love and giving.  Who on earth would buy anything remotely Christmassy when we were still lazying around and enjoying the last of the sunshine? 

      However, fast forward 4 months and I’m running around like a maniac trying to get all of my Christmas shopping finished before the season well and truly sets in.  I am always one of the last few stragglers left running up and down the West End on the eve of Christmas, panic-buying inappropriate, useless gifts for my neareast and dearest.  The energy, stress, not to mention the cash!  Oh indeed, Christmas is an expensive time of year, in more ways than one.  

      However, I have had a head start this year.  With powerbanks, wireless speakers and wireless chargers, I have almost completed all of my Christmas shopping. 

      The new e-Wave Stereo speakers are a god-send for buying a gift for the boyfriend.  They are ideal for him.  Coming as pair, I can see it now, they’ll sit proudly either side of his living room.  You can place them up to 10 metres apart wirelessly and they play in stereo, replicating natural sound.  No mess, no wires.  And they will play up to 10 metres away from your device. 

      And boy do they pack a mean punch.  The sound is great on them.

      And the beauty is that I know it’s a useful present that he’ll love.  No stuffing away quietly in the lonely cupboard...the land of forgotten panic-bought gifts. Value for money. Excellent.

      Now I think I’ll just replicate that present for my brother, sister, best friend…Pre-Christmas stress? Pah! Sorted!

      Panic Over, The Powerbank is Here...

      The most irritating technological problem of today is actually more basic than one would imagine when posed with this question.  After all the advances made in the last ten years in mobile and gadget technology, there is one thing that still really irritates the masses- BATTERY LIFE!

      It’s always when you need your device the most that it chooses to run out of juice.   It’s weird to think that a smartphone that can seemingly do anything, won’t last 12 hours without needing a refuel. 

      I have felt the irritation that I know I share with every other human who thought life would be made simpler with a smartphone.   As an example, a few weeks ago I was on my way to a job interview and was looking up the location on my smartphone.  I have now begun to take for granted that I have a built in sat nav on my phone.  It was 2.30pm.  Bear in mind that my phone had been on charge all night.  I admit that in the morning, I had sent a few emails and texts catching up after the weekend…maybe I was even listening to some music (I can almost hear the collective, “Well, what did you expect?”).

      And as I sat on the tube, listening to my music, suddenly I was warned that I only had 10% left!  How had this happened?  It was taken off the charger at 8am!  It had only been 6 and a half hours! I quickly switched my music off and was forced to turn off all my apps.

      As I got off the tube I turned on the maps on my phone and prayed that there would be enough battery to get me to my destination.  We got off to a promising start, my phone and I.  Until, that is, half way on my journey it completely switched off.

      Now I began to panic.  How was I going to find the offices?  I couldn’t even call or email them to tell them I was going to be late!  I stopped a few people on the street to ask for directions, and then suddenly remembered I didn’t know what the door number was.  I hadn’t thought of a back up plan in case my phone switched off!  I finally made my way to the Kings Road, not knowing which end I was meant to be at.  I had 8 minutes to spare.  My mind started flooding with worry and I began to sweat like I’d just come out of a Bikram yoga session.  

      In desperation, I found a payphone and called my flat mate at her office.  I think the alarm in my voice must have translated, as she immediately rose to the occasion.  “Have you left the boiler on again?!” she asked. 

      I explained my predicament.  She signed into my email account and gave me the address for where I needed to go. I got there three minutes late, not the best of starts...

      When the Bitmore® e-Fuel™ 2600mAh Smartphone Powerbank walked into my life, I could practically see the clouds parting and the angels singing.  I grasped it with two hands, not quite believing that this little ray of hope could answer my prayers.

      After charging it for two hours, I eagerly put it in my bag, just willing my phone to lose its battery.  My carefree step was probably visible to anyone who saw me walking around, possibly thinking I had a new boyfriend, new job or maybe had just put down the deposit for a first flat.  Little did they know it was simply down to a powerbank!

      And lo and behold, by 5pm the phone was dead.  Not a panicked bone in my body, I simply sat on the tube, whipped out my iPhone 5 and charging wire and plugged it into the powerbank, which was sitting snugly in my pocket.   

      Within 10 minutes I had 10% battery, enough to make a call, and within an hour and 15 minutes I had 100% with 5% juice left on the powerbank.  So plenty for one full charge and a little left over!

      This little baby has changed my life, I can use it with my phone, MP3 player, even my digital camera.   Now when I go out, there are occasions when I still hear the odd “Oh my phone’s dead, now what?” or see someone waiting to use the plug point at Starbucks.  If only they knew what I knew….
