- I have 5 laptops and only 2 of them are charged at all.
- I have two Kindles that have been out of batteries for 6 months.
- We share chargers in the kitchen because we have too many iOS devices.
- I got a Fitbit and an Up bracelet and I charged them each twice, ever. Confused about when to take them off for 8 hours too. e.g., if I want sleep and fitness tracking, then I can't ever charge!
I hope this iteration of smart watches, devices, etc. have some clever charging solutions too, because I am out of plugs and time.
Charging all these new devices is really a first-order problem, and whoever solves it will win the market. It shouldn't be an afterthought, or these things will sit in drawers like all the old devices do.
I guess the first thought now when contemplating a device purchase is not cost, specs, or "what will it do for me?" It is: "where will I plug it in?"ReplyDelete
NASA solves this problem with solar cells and nuclear power packs. Too bad those solutions don't work on Earth.
