We use our smartphones every day for various reasons: Email, text messaging, Hangouts, surfing the Web, streaming music, streaming movies, and occasionally even making phone calls. Try as they might, it seems like OEMs never give us enough battery life. We’ve talked about external battery packs in the past, but XDA Developer TV Producer AdamOutler gives us a little information on the unsung hero of the smartphone world: chargers.
Adam talks about chargers and charging cords. He talks about what makes a good cord, and what makes a bad cord. He talks about aftermarket chargers, some of which offer many ports so you can charge all your devices without taking up every free outlet in your house. Finally, Adam talks about and measures the actual amperage delivered by these devices compared to what they are rated to deliver.
