I use my iPad Air and iPhone 6 for so much.
Blogging here daily, with all of the writing and picture-taking that involves, for one thing. Not to mention the texting, emailing, national newspaper reading, researching, other online poking around, other writing uses and even a phone call or three.
I don’t own a laptop or landline phone anymore.
So these two Apple products must stay well-charged.
And did I mention that my dear wife Karen also has her iPhone 6 and an iPad, too.
So when one of our two living-room powering stations started loosing its juice, Karen figured out it was the fault of the plug inserted into the surge protector. Proof: The good one got warm and the bad one stayed cold.
A trip to Best Buy Mobile found the Apple-manufactured replacement for a bit more than $20.
Advice from the associate came with the purchase.
Do not charge the iPhone at this station, he said. These meaty plugs that come with the iPad send too much juice at once. Bad for the iPhone’s smaller battery, he said.
It’s best to stay with the smaller model included with the iPhone purchase, he said.
Of course I’ve been charging my iPhone 6 at the big station because of the faster charge.
Which all leads me to wonder …
Does Apple build the iAccessories to wear out in X amount of time?
If you’ve had trouble with Smart Phone accessories, what were they, and how much did it cost to replace? What brand or phone or tablet do you use, and are you happy and why? What’s your favorite device to write and read and comment on blogs?
