“Hey buddy, you got some juice?” It’s some poor soul stopping you on a street corner with a look of desperation and the smell of regret. He plucks at your sleeve helplessly and then shows you a truly terrifying sight – a smartphone that’s completely and totally…dead. He pushes buttons, swipes the screen, shakes it, but NOTHING HAPPENS!
We’ve all been there, a phone battery slowly dying and no charger or wall outlet within miles. It’s a desperate situation all right. Smartphone batteries have improved significantly in the last few years, but when your battery is dead, that’s it for life and love as we know it.
But now, thanks to our friends in Japan, there’s an easy portable solution. Enter the Smartphone to Smartphone Charger Cable! With it you can charge your microUSB phone by using another person’s microUSB phone socket, kind of like ‘jumper cables for your smartphone‘. The small lightweight cable can give you a battery boost when you most need it, assuming you have a friend who is generous enough to share. It’s such a simple idea, you’ve got to wonder ‘why didn’t I think of this?’
Note: Sorry iPhone users, this product only supports micro-USB devices. Available for just $15.60 (plus shipping).
