Our society today is extremely mobile. Conference calls happen while you.re driving to the airport with your headset on. Emails are replied while you.re pumping gas, and business hours are no longer limited from 8 to 5. The biggest facilitator in this cultural shift was the introduction of internet capabilities on wireless devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers.

But what happens when you.re on an important call, you see a text message from one of your family members come through, and then you notice that your battery icon is displaying that little red sliver notifying you that you.re down to the dangerous 3%. You shouldn.t have to be put in that situation of choosing between finishing the call or replying to your family member before battery runs out. And until the bionic battery with a 300 active hour charge life is invented, this is a situation that almost everyone will continue to face on a regular basis.
