The Do’s and Don’ts of Power Management

Power consumption has always been an issue when it comes to modern technology. Nearly all gadgets require regular charging to function. This brings up a lot of issues, including battery size, travel concerns, and backup power.

Here are some factors to consider when dealing with your tech.

Internal Battery Size

Consumers often consider a device’s battery size before finalizing their decisions. Battery size determines how long you can use the item before requiring a charge. Gadgets with large batteries can last weeks in one charge. Smaller ones however only last a day – or less. For those who are away from charging stations for long periods (travelers, fieldwork, etc.) this is a must.

An issue with this is that larger battery size also means a heavier phone. In fact, the bigger batteries capable of storing 10,000 mAh may as well come in bricks. They come in very bulky, heavy phones. This may not be the best choice for those wanting to travel light. Even holding the phone can be a problem because of the added weight.

Fast Charging

Rapid charging is also a selling point when it comes to electronics. The idea is that while the battery may be limited, it takes no time at all to bring it back to full charge. This gives you the most use out of the item. Rapid charging is also comes with wireless charging, which offers even more convenience.

Power Banks

Power Banks are the middle ground when it comes to having added energy for your items. An average Power Bank is no bigger than a wallet. It is lightweight, can charge your devices multiple times, and can fit in small bags. This makes them excellent companions while you are away from home. Power Banks offer guaranteed full charges, giving you access to your items for days, if not entire weeks at a time.
