The All-Day Battery


Basically, every day is the same. I wake up, I get ready for the day, I grab my phone, I grab my Mophie, and I’m off. About halfway through the day, my phone dies and my Mophie saves me. I get home and I charge both devices to get ready for the next day.

When I started using my Mophie, I would need it about 3 days in a week. Now, I rely on it every day, and about 3 days in a week, I worry about running out of my back up juice. That’s right, my back up juice.
