Although an iPhone is rechargeable, you will do well to remember that the battery will not last forever. Depending on the usage, the battery of an iPhone lasts around 2 to 3 years. To avoid charging your battery at regular intervals, change the way you use your iPhone to extend the battery’s lifetime. Once in a while letting your battery drain completely and then charging it back will help maintain battery health.
Just when you thought there is a dearth of energy saving devices in the technological arena, Mophie’s Juice Pack battery line has come up with the Keychain iPhone Charger. The Keychain iPhone Charger is a small, very light (weighing no more than 1.6 ounces) portable external battery which helps keep your iDevice charged for action. The device plugs directly into a wall outlet without the need for cables. When you flip open the top of the device you will find a 30-pin connector. There is a cleverly concealed USB port at the bottom of the charger. Unlike other devices, the Keychain iPhone Charger doesn’t have multiple lights to indicate battery status. There is just one LED light for this purpose. The design is sleek, slim and almost flawless. It has a matte rubberized finish that is soft to touch.
The Keychain iPhone Charger has a 700mAh battery that is a lot less than other external batteries. Since the device is not meant to deliver full power supply, it gives your drained battery a much needed 30% power boost. On the downside, it is not recommended that you use the Keychain iPhone Charger on your iPad as we are not sure if it can handle a lot of weight.
Let not the steep price of the Keychain iPhone Charger put you out of market for it. For its design, attractive packaging and portability, it is still worth every dollar you spend. Among the uncountable add-on accessories to the iPhone, there are not many that stand up to the test. To save your iPhone or iPod from slow (or an instant) death, investing on the Keychain iPhone Charger would be the wise thing to do. Whether you want to hang it on to your keychain or throw it into your travel bag; on-the-move power is yours. But, if you do hang it on your keychain, you probably want to be more careful with it. With the Keychain iPhone Charger, charging your iPhone is definitely not a hassle.
