On November 16 at 8:41 in the morning I discovered that my trusted life (battery) saver Mophie for iPhone had died. Mophie’s are awesome as they easily double the lifespan of your iPhone battery, even at the “always on” intense use I put my phone through in a day.
Sidebar 1: Apple should be ashamed that my phone battery dies after lunch with the way I use the 4S. I am sure I am a heavy, but not an atypical user, jockeying between email, calendar, internet, iTunes, calls, Instagram, WhatsApp, maps, the occasional game and the like. If you build technology capable of doing all that, the battery should be able to follow. Otherwise it would be like building an electric car that needs 24 hours to re-charge when you deplete the battery. You don’t always have time on a journey to park your car for 24 hours when en route from A to B, right? I am just saying…
Anyway, Mophie allowed me to go through the day without charging once, so I decided I needed to break the piggybank and buy a new one. And I posted a picture of the dead Mophie and my piggybank to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
