Cell phone tech is constantly evolving. I often nostalgically recall the days of the old “indestructible” Nokia bar phones of the early 2000’s. Ah, it was a simpler time, a time before we all had our hearts hardened by The Matrix sequels, a time when snake was the most popular mobile game and before quad core processors and power hungry applications. Back then cell phones weren’t used for much more than calling people and sending ridiculously expensive text messages. Today, 6 years after the release of the first iPhone, powerful smartphones are being released and improved upon on regular basis and we use them for everything, they’ve become basically an extension of our home computers. The problem with such usability is that it comes with a price. Battery life. There is nothing more frustrating than a phone with short battery life though do not despair, the “Fuel Micro Charger” by Devotec Industries is here to help us with our first-world problems! The Fuel Micro Charger is a tiny 1.3″ x 0.9″ device that can give your smartphone a little 20 – 30 minute boost in times of need, which can be really helpful if you’re stranded with a dead phone. It should be noted that this device is only for phones with micro-usb charging ports so iPhone users are out of luck for the time being but don’t worry, Devotec is developing an iPhone version as we speak. Check out the Fuel Micro Charger here!
