The world is getting smaller, and it is becoming a lot easier for people to travel for both personal and business reasons. When jetting off for business or pleasure, however, it is important to remain in contact with friends, family, colleagues, co-workers, clients, and customers. In order to keep phones running, chargers are needed. Unfortunately, while on the move, mains power outlets will not be available: consequently, portable chargers have become extremely popular for this reason.
There are several different types of backup battery charger that will run anywhere in the world.
Battery Powered Chargers
These portable mobile phone chargers are the most common, and they come in a huge range of different styles and designs to suit a huge range of phones. They generally use AAA batteries, and simply connect to the phone through a basic connection port. Naturally, making sure that the phone is compatible with the charger is essential.
Solar Powered Chargers
Solar powered chargers run off a completely self-sustaining energy source – the sun. As such, they are hugely efficient and environmentally friendly. While they can be relatively expensive, these costs are often offset by the fact that it will not be necessary to buy batteries to make them work: as such, the initial purchase is the only cost involved.
Hand Crank Chargers
For real emergencies, hand crank chargers are useful. However, they are only really intended as last resort chargers, when other options are unavailable. Their major benefit is the fact that they can be used anywhere in the world, and they require no other energy source other than a bit of effort and sweat. In addition, modern versions are small enough to be taken in travel bags.
Car chargers are extremely useful for long car journeys. While they are not strictly portable, they can be taken on holiday and trips where a car will be rented. However, do be sure to check that the rental car is compatible with the charger, or vice versa.
USB Backup Battery Charger
USB backup battery chargers are also excellent when travelling, especially for business purposes. The reason for this is because they are generally run off of a laptop, and use the laptops battery to charge up the phones battery. Some mains chargers will have a detachable plug that links to a USB connection. Many trains and planes have plug sockets into which laptop chargers can be plugged: the USB backup battery charger can then simply feed off of this power, rather than taking up another plug socket which may not be available.
The Infinite One of Kinkoo is a USB backup battery charger when faced with emergency situations, so keeping it charged is essential at all times, especially for those who find themselves in foreign climes. whole point of portable chargers is to allow people to charge their phones when driving, on the train, on a plane, or on any other form of transport where alternative charging options are not available. For longer journeys, such as long flights, this is particularly important, especially when the phone is being relied upon for entertainment purposes. Using the phone to watch films or play games will drain the battery quickly, and after a couple of hours, it may run out of charge. With a Infinite One, the phone can find itself back up and running in no time.
