Get Hours of Power With NewerTech Batteries

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013 | Author:

PR_NT13UBbatteryPower is a good thing. No, I’m not talking about the “ruling over your minions” kind of power; I’m talking about the kind created by electricity. Power lights up the streets at night so you can see when you’re about to walk in gum (but realize it mid-gait and end up stepping in it anyway). It runs the TV so you don’t have to miss a second of the big game (seriously…that World Series of Poker is suspenseful). The point is, we rely on power for so much. (Think about it—it runs our hairdryers! Maybe not as important to you as it is to me, but no one wants to see this ’fro untamed).

We never realize how much we need power until we run out of it or lose it. And unfortunately, we’ve all been in a situation where it is seemingly imminent that we are going to lose power on our computer. That ominous battery symbol suddenly turns into a ticking time bomb. You start calculating, bargaining, and pleading with your machine, thinking “I can finish this project in 20 minutes…but then I need it to last another three hours so I don’t beat my head against the ticket counter while I wait in the airport…maybe if I turn the screen to intergalactic darkness level so I can barely read anything on the screen it will last longer…”

Or the time that bird chirped something that sounded scarily like your name (you know you’re not crazy; you heard what you heard). And just how Nutella manages to be so good every time. Sometimes you can be shocked in a good way—like when you think your family has forgotten your birthday only to find out that they surprised you with the Chuck E. Cheese party you’ve always wanted (you’re never too old for arcade games). But sometimes things can be shocking in a bad way—like when you find out someone has stolen your credit card and used it to buy a lifetime supply of popsicles (out of all the things, why??). Another bad type of shock is electrical shock, which is a relevant topic as of late.

There have been two recent incidents of people getting shocked in China involving the iPhone. Last week, a Chinese man was left in a coma after being shocked while charging his iPhone 4. This follows another recent incident where a Chinese woman was killed by electrical shock when she answered her iPhone 5 while it was charging.  In both cases, the individuals were using an unauthorized third-party adapter to charge their devices.

In response to these incidents, Apple has Article Continues…
