How often have you talked on your cell phone only to have the battery die in mid-sentence?
If you're a cell-phone junkie (and what PR person isn't) who has this happen often, consider buying yourself a Cellboost, a disposable battery and charger.
The Cellboost looks like a small cigarette lighter, so much so that it might confuse airport security, which isn't letting lighters on planes now. But there's no confusing how well it works.
If your phone battery is low or dead, just uncap the Cellboost and plug it into your phone. It acts like a battery so you can make calls. Or you can use it to recharge your battery while the phone isn't in use - a handy feature when you're not somewhere with a plug available for your regular charger.
I originally thought it was only a charger, so I was pleasantly surprised upon discovering that it could also be used as a battery.
Cellboosts are available for a variety of cell phones, so make sure to buy the right one for your particular model.
