Three Ways to Keep Your iPhone Fully Charged

Giving your smartphone battery a boost simple, as long as someone hasn’t swiped your plug and cord.

Apple has been a leader in smartphone and tablet technology since the close of the flip-phone Dark Ages. While iOS users tend to protect their mobile devices with the vigilance of an anxious parent, we bestow less attention on the charging cords. The wayward tethers tend to wander off, become lost, or get themselves abducted by some other iPhone user who “mistakes” your charger for their own. Prevent charger loss by always having one of these spares on hand.

Comes in Multiple Lengths

Instead of toting one complete charging unit from location to location, which is the easiest way to lose it, consider buying cords in multiples. That way you can leave a cord plugged into several of your most frequently used USB power stations and always have a means to charge your iOS device.
