skinnycharge-08

We lug our smartphones and other personal devices everywhere. But one of the drawbacks of the device features arms race---with larger display sizes, faster processors and connectivity speeds and other new features---is an ever-increasing need for power.

There’s an old saying: “You can never be too thin or too rich.” In today’s tech-driven world, I would like to add to that: “You can never have enough backup power.” It’s grammatically clumsy to be sure, but it’s also true. We are more dependent than ever on places to plug in and recharge our [...]
