Portable Charger

I have an iPhone. That means I have terrible battery life. A few YouTube videos, one Snapchat, and two Facebook updates are enough to drain half of my battery, even in Low Power Mode. Luckily there is a solution: a portable charger. A portable charger is essentially a backup battery and it’s a lifesaver. I dropped thirty bucks on one a few weeks ago. I was hiking Half Dome in Yosemite and wanted to make sure my phone had enough juice to take plenty of pictures so I had to get one. It allows me to charge my phone up to three times before I have to recharge the charger. That’s good news for me, because I’m one of those anal people who can’t leave the house without being 100%. I dread a drained battery. Now I don’t have to worry about it. My charger also has two USB ports on it, meaning I can charge my vape at the same time. Not too shabby. The future is now.

AA Battery

It doesn’t matter how cool your electronics are if you don’t have any batteries to power them. There are a bunch of different sized batteries, but nothing beats AA batteries. AA batteries (or double A batteries) are the most popular type of battery in the world, accounting for over half of battery sales worldwide. They are the preferred battery for most portable electronics, powering everything from toothbrushes to remote controls to speakers to flashlights. Your household is incomplete if you don’t have any spare AA batteries lying around in a drawer somewhere. You would be fucked if there was a natural disaster or if you lost power for a few days. AA batteries are one of the things that most people would forget to scavenge when the zombie apocalypse happens. I would loot the Duracell factory, hoard all the batteries, and use them as a currency to buys guns, food, and land. Eventually I would become the King of Zombieland. Whoever has the batteries has the power.

iPhone Charger

iPhones are pretty commonplace these days. It seems like every other guy and every other guy’s mom has one. And I’ve noticed that there seems to be a lack of iPhone chargers for the amount of iPhones in use. I love my iPhone, but my battery dies faster than playing Contra without cheats. Having an iPhone used to make you cool. Now the most popular person in the room is whoever brings a spare charger. Everyone will be complimenting them, laughing loudly at their lame jokes, offering sexual favors… anything to get a charge.
