Remember when cellphones had batteries that would last for days, or even a week or so on a charge? That was before phones got “smart.” These days you’re lucky to find a phone that can go 24 hours between charges.
While my Google Pixel 2 is the first smartphone I’ve ever owned that can actually last from morning through night without charging in between, I still make sure to carry a portable battery pack with me whenever I’m traveling, since I like the security of knowing I’ll be able to charge the battery in an emergency, even if I’m not near an outlet. It’s also a sort of security blanket that makes it feel safer to actually use the phone on the go, since I’m not worried that it’ll run out of juice if I spend a little time playing Classic Words or checking Facebook.
