Charge your cellphone with the Wrist Band Portable Battery

Charge your cellphone with the Wrist Band Portable Battery
We've all had situations where our cellphone battery has died on us just when we needed power the most. Some solutions are not always practical, like carrying around another charged battery wherever we go. Some of us will plug in our car charger and drive around and around with no destination in mind, just to charge up our device. What a waste of gas! Now comes a new solution that combines practicality with function. The "Wrist Band Portable Battery" is a wrist band loaded with a lithium-ion battery that comes with 7 different adapters. The wrist band has a set of LED lights that tell us how much life the battery has remaining. The charger will set you back about $25 and will hook you up for approximately five hours. We know many people who are so obsessed with their cellphone that they always have it with them. Now that you can charge your device on your wrist, it brings a new meaning to being attached to your phone. Planning on picking one up?

Wow... Thats just too much, I mean when is the addiction going to stop? Aren't we sick of being attached to our phones and blackberries 24/7? Pssst.... does it come with a micro usb adapter for my blackberry Storm ? LMAO! In all seriousness it's an ingenious idea, wonder what the standby time is on the little bugger? $25 isnt too bad either, cheaper than a standard battery, however if I really think about it I dont really see that much of an advantage over having a spare battery. Pros to this little wrist thing would be that its only $25, you can wear it on your wrist while you charge your phone / talk on your phone, its lightweight and portable. Cons would be that its larger than a spare battery, would take up more room in your laptop bag or whatever means you use to carry it around, moreso than a spare battery, and you still have to charge the thing (obviously, not a complaint) however I just might not see the supreme advantage of having this charged wrist battery over a charged standby battery. I think I would rather pop in a spare for a few extra bucks then wear a wrist charger with a wire going from my hand to my phone. Good idea, just not good enough...
