With all the different types of rechargeable batteries available today, one can easily get confused to what would be the best thing to have installed in their cell phone. While there’s a lot of talk about Li-Ion batteries today, they’re more expensive than other types of rechargeable, especially Ni-Cads. The question this naturally raises in many people’s minds is, “Is it all hype, or are the Li-Ion batteries really better?” The quick answer is, yes. Let’s take a moment to look at your cell phone, how you use it, and how to make sure you get the most out of it.
We must realize that the newest generations of cell phones are changing the way the average person communicates and accesses information. While the invention of cell phones has caused a massive shift from “land-line” phones and vastly increased ability to communicate; that shift will be eclipsed by the paradigm shift that the connection of cell phones to the Internet will cause. The race is still on to see where this technology connection is going to take us.
Accessing the Internet through cell phones means that those phones are active much more time than before. Between the increased screen time and the increased transmission time, battery drain is much higher than with older phones. Of all possible Accessories you can buy, a Li-Ion battery is the best possible investment you can make for your phone.
But here’s the truth: Lithium-Ion batteries are just superior to the regular rechargeable batteries. These batteries don’t just add give you more power than the stock battery, but they also charge faster too. With modern fast chargers, you can recharge Li-Ion batteries in 30 minutes, instead of the typical 3-1/2 hours of other types of batteries. Not only that, but the requirement of allowing your battery to totally die, as you have to in order to insure long life of Ni-Cd batteries, is eliminated. What this means for you is that you’ll be able to spend more time using your BlackBerry Torch and less time waiting for its batteries to recharge.
Today, more than ever, your cell phone has become a valuable business tool. Like any tool, the better you learn to use it, the more you can accomplish with it. As a valuable tool, protecting it is part of properly using it. The most sensitive and easily damaged part of any touch screen phone is the screen, so that’s the part which needs to be protected the most. A screen protector will help protect your screen from scratches. Next to having a case, this is the most important thing you can do to insure the long life of your phone.
Between the accessories I have mentioned here, you can probably guess that the Blackberry. Not just a phone, but a way of tying all your communications needs together; whether they be through voice, text, e-mail or accessing information on the Internet. With the long life that you can expect from your battery, you won’t have to worry about losing communications in the middle of a meeting, business trip, or just surfing the ‘net. Your phone, your communications system, your life, your security, they all fit together.
