When has this happened to you: you're on vacation or out for the day when suddenly your device runs out of juice. Texting, twittering, and playing games can be a huge drain on your battery. I realized this when I was packing for CES2012 and made the unfortunate mistake of not including a spare battery for my Bold 9900. Call it a senior moment, but we don't always think of these things. That's why Concord Keystone Trading announced their new battery pack for Micro-USB Smart Phones. The Keystone ECO Booster 2.0 extends the battery life of smart phones on-the-go and extends the usage time of the phone up to double capacity. It works through a built-in retractable USB cable and can be attached to the back of the phone with an adhesive gel pad incorporated into the unit.
This is a small, lightweight device that packs a lot of power. Instead of scrambling to different stores trying to find a battery or worrying about getting that low power alert just plug in one of these babies and you're good to go. Check out the quick demonstration above and click on the link for the full press release. The booster will be available March 2012. Connie Chan, Director of Operations, was too shy to appear on camera, but I thank her for taking time out of her busy schedule to demonstrate the product.
