Remember back in the day when you used to charge your cellphone once every week? Yeah, I don't remember it either. Nowadays if you even look at your smartphone the battery dies and you have to carry around a charging cable with you everywhere you go. Some people go to the extent of buying several cables; one for work, home, parents home, car or Europe.
I read a somewhere once that the best way to extend battery life on a smartphone is to not use it. Like never use it; "My cellphone has great battery life, when I don't use it, lol". We are having faster and faster phones, eventually we will have to walk around with tethered external batteries in our pockets.
