When you are running around with your mobile device looking for your charger and an empty outlet while you're down to that dreaded 1% mark? Kind of like trying to find an escape route during a fire.

I came up with Charge Barge, but I'm sure there is better.


Mother Plugger?

Idk.

Wasn't there a film with Christopher Walken in it about this problem? I think it was called "The Dead Phone"

Yeah. I think I remember that one. Didn't he awaken for a coma 5 years later only to discover that after 10 new product releases the iPhone was the same as when he went under? A real horror/comedy.

Missouri_Rebel,

I call it panic.

Best wishes,

When I went to Indy, it was my first time on an airplane in about 20 years.

Biggest change I noticed at Phoenix Sky Harbor airport was the "charging stations" everywhere. Clusters of seating with a six plug outlet and kids sitting on the floor plugged into the wall sockets.

It's a new world out there... feeling very old (as I plug my two Kindles and HTC Phone in to charge)!

Technologically dependent. Nothing wrong with tech, but if its failure has you running around like a chicken with its head cut off, you're probably better off seeking for a low-tech plan B.

Example - how many people do you know still have land line phones in their house? A lightning storm can quickly bring an end not only to portable home phones, but cell towers as well. Land lines aren't generally affected by the same power failure. A simple old rotary or touch tone phone will solve the incommunicado problemo.
