Potential app lets you know battery status of all your devices

Any device with low battery is deemed almost useless until you plug and see battery level rise. A full, green battery is always a sight to behold. But sadly, that is not always the case. Gadgets run on juice and most of them won’t last the whole day. The technique is to bring a charger or a power bank with you all the time. Or, just charge the device anytime there is a chance. You don’t want to suddenly run out of batt when you’re in an important conversation, do you?

Our LG G3 battery life test gives impressive early results

The LG G3 has a lot going for it, packing a lot of muscle beneath a gorgeous 5.5-inch screen. Though it’s got a massive 3,000mAh battery, we questioned whether battery life would suffer under normal use. As it turns out, the battery life is not only impressive, it’s outstanding.

A battery pack is the easiest and most straightforward approach, here.

Transphorm could change the way our phones and tablets charge

You don’t have to say it. Nobody says it, because everyone is experiencing it. Your smartphone and tablet batteries charge far too slowly. Part of the reason for that is the power lost in those annoyingly bulky power converters we get. Transphorm, a startup which has been around for about six years, could be changing all that soon.

Qualcomm Snapdragon BatteryGuru aims to boost your battery life

We all know that one of the key areas of a smartphone is battery life. What use is that 5-inch HD display and awesome features if you never use them to conserve and last the rest of the day? In a way, battery life is the most important feature, and today Qualcomm's new app is hoping to increase exactly that. We've seen BatteryGuru before, but today it left beta and is readily available.
