New Batteries Will Last Longer, Charge Faster

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Engineers at Northwestern University are creating batteries that last longer and charge faster, a potential solution to battery drain on mobile devices.  Using the innovation, a typical smartphone is expected to charge fully in 15 minutes and last for at least a week on a single charge.

As consumers use smartphones and tablets for more data-intensive purposes like watching movies, playing games and surfing the web, battery life has become a big concern. Apple just completed software updates on its iPhone 4S to fix battery drain problems, and researchers are always on the lookout for ways to make batteries last longer or charge more efficiently.  Hopefully, battery life will become stronger and quicker to charge as technology grows making it all the more convenient to operate portable electronics.

There’s nothing better than getting exactly what you wanted for the holidays.  However that feeling of elation can be destroyed when after you feverishly open your gift, you realize you are missing a few important parts for it to be perfect; a battery a cable, a charger, etc.  At Abt Electronics, we not only have a great selection of gifts, but a great, wide selection of necessary accessories.  Choose from batteries, HDMI cables, screen protectors and more!

Charge It All with Idapt

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Idapt has a cool line of products, available at Abt. If you are anything like me, you have multiple handheld devices in your home that all need charging, and you have a limited number of free outlets to plug everything into.

Idapt chargers are a great solution for anyone who has multiple devices to charge. The Idapt accessories charger will give you the freedom to charge up to three handheld devices or accessories at the same time. It can charge mobile phones, smartphones, headsets or Bluetooth headphones, GPS units, cameras, game consoles, and batteries. It has interchangeable tips so you can configure the charger for the devices that you want to charge.

Rob, an Apple sales specialist at Abt, thinks this is a great charging station for a nightstand. Your phone is close by and both you and a significant other can charge phones at the same time.

Look for Idapt in the Apple store at Abt.
