Imagine sitting in an airport with your favorite smartphone. The battery on your smartphone has just died. Being a prepared mover and shaker, you are equipped with the phone’s charge cable. Unfortunately, you cannot locate a power outlet. To top it off, you have a teleconference starting in two minutes. This scenario happens to business travellers all the time. That is why the Samsung Spare Battery System is the perfect accessory for the Samsung Focus.
One of the great things about owning a phone with a removable battery is you can carry a backup. I am not an iPhone fan however; I give Apple credit for the iPhone’s exceptional battery life. Nonetheless, with constant use, the battery will die. The downside for iPhone users is the fact that you cannot swap the battery out.
Certainly, there are devices you can use to recharge your phone. Most notably, the Amzer Solar Charger is one of our favorite chargers. At 60 dollars, this is not a convenient choice for everyone. Alternatively, for Samsung Focus owners, you can simply order the Samsung Spare Battery System. Carrying a second battery is not a new concept by any means. Nevertheless, the way the Samsung replacement battery works is awesome.
Unboxing The Contents
When opening the package you will find exactly what you would expect. There are an extra battery and instructions. The great thing about this product is the fact that it comes with its own charger. Therefore, there is also a charger and a power cord. Anyone who has ever carried an extra battery knows what a pain it is to keep both batteries charged. With the Samsung Spare Battery System being its own charger, this pain is dissipated.
How To Use It
The door on the charger opens upward then you can easily slide the battery in.
A charge indicator light shows red while the battery is charging.
The indicator turns green when the battery is fully charged.
A Bonus Feature
Finally, the Samsung Spare Battery System doubles as a stand for your Samsung Focus. The Focus fits comfortably in the wedge. This is perfect for watching movies on a plane or using you smartphone as a desk clock. The only thing I would have preferred is if the stand charged the phone and spare battery simultaneously.
With the one feature being my only complaint, I am comfortable saying, the Samsung Spare Battery System is perfect accessory for the Samsung Focus.
