All couples have those few consistent battlegrounds. In some households, it’s socks on the living room floor, and for others it’s whether or not putting dirty dishes in the sink means the dishes are “done.” Some husbands think the bed doesn’t need to be made, because “it’s going to get messed up in a few hours anyway,” and some wives let clean clothes sit in the basket so long the t-shirts have wrinkles as deep as the Grand Canyon.
In our house, we fight over all of those things, but our biggest battle is over the phone charger.
Every night, after the kids are in bed, we have the same conversation.
Me: “Will you plug my phone in, please?”
Husband: “Mine’s charging already.”
Me: “What’s your battery percent?”
Him: “It’s low.”
Me: “Lower than 4%?”
Him: *Grumbles as he unplugs his phone and plugs mine in.*
You may be wondering, “Amy, why don’t you use different chargers?” and the answer is, I DON’T KNOW WHY. We have more than one charger, but I don’t know where they are, and anyway the charger we fight over is in the living room so no one has to get up, and we are truly the laziest of people.
You know what would be nice? A phone charger that didn’t need to be connected to the wall. Portable chargers are awesome for folks on the go, like parents, travelers, and people who have a life outside of binge watching Netflix with their cats. Portable chargers are also great for moms who like to lie on the couch after the kids go to bed and don’t want to get up to plug phones into chargers.
Sounds good, right?
Probably the best thing about portable chargers is that you never have to experience that dread of a red battery when you’re out and about. Low phone batteries make me twitchy. What if the school calls? What if one of my two pregnant sisters-in-law go into labor? What if the friends we’re meeting at the park have to cancel at the last minute? What if I’m at Target and I want to see if something is less expensive on Amazon? A dead phone battery is no bueno, and myCharge understands that.
