Update: Time’s up folks, we’ll have a post with the winners soon!
Do you worry about low battery life? Have you ever found yourself with a dead phone right when you need it most? I know I have and thanks to my recent of review of the myCharge Peak 6000, the folks at myCharge want to make sure you don’t worry about battery life again. With our data consumption on smartphones increasing faster than battery life, there have been far too many days in my life that I’ve found myself reaching for a charger long before the day is over. We hope that technology catches up to data hungry needs in the future, but for now companies like myCharge are doing their part to keep you constantly charged.
So here’s the deal, this contest is short, sweet and easy: Tell us the worst thing that’s ever happened to you because of a dead cell phone battery.
I’ve racked my brain trying to think of my worst case scenario and honestly, I’ve got nothing. I’m sure there are plenty of times I’ve had some notable moment with a dead smartphone, but I can’t think of anything. I’m sure it’ll come to me later, after I’ve already posted this.
On a separate note, thanks to my total rockstar status I’ll be running the very same contest on TmoNews.com and DroidDog.com giving you six total chances to win.
