We need to admit that we’re way too dependent on our cell phones these days. We feel vulnerable without them. Nowadays we do way more than just calling with our phones. iPhone users all depend on their phones to surf, check email, check their Facebook pages, check-in on FourSqaure, etc., which means the battery can be used up so fast.
Now Energizer to the rescue. Its new AP1201 case, looking not that bulky and quite stylish, protects and charges the iPhone at the same time. There are two charging modes: a fast charge mode that charges the phone first, then the case. A second mode that does simultaneous pass-through charging. It is stated that the case can give you twice the battery life and it retails at $69.99.
Here’s no more excuse of “my phone’s out of battery” in only a day. Plan your Christmas shopping early and this is a great gift for sure.

Some taxis also installed credit card system on the passenger seats so riders can just swipe the credit card, punch in the amount and get the receipt themselves.
But how about paying with your phone? Everyone is holding their phone texting or playing games on transportations anyways, one less step to take your bus pass or credit card out and just swipe your phone to get in and get out. There’s an idea!
