5 tips to keep your mobile device battery charged for longer

By | Cell Phone Charging, Dining, Hospitals, Lifestyle, Mobile Charging Kiosk, Music Festivals, Outdoor Events, Schools and Universities, Tips & Tricks, Trade Shows, Uncategorized

Whether it be a natural disaster, work meetings, or family outings, mobile device batteries surely don’t last forever. Our priority at goCharge is to help keep people connected by charging up — so we came up with a list of tips and tricks to keep your battery charged up as long as possible.

How to keep your mobile device battery charged for longer

How to keep your mobile device battery charged for longer

Turn off Bluetooth and Wifi

Even when Bluetooth and Wifi are not linked to any sources, they will constantly search for sources to which they can join.

Don’t let it get too hot or cold

Keeping your phone room temperature is vital for battery life — avoid leaving it in the car, outside, and don’t leave it in the fridge by accident (we’ve all been guilty of that mistake). Stay away from extreme temperatures, this can cause permanent damage.

Dim the screen brightness // use auto brightness

The brightness on your screen is directly related to battery drainage. Think about it: if you have a dimmer in your lights at home, the brighter your lights are, the higher your electricity bill is. That’s because the light consumes energy. Bringing this concept back to a cell phone battery: Bright screen –> More energy –> More battery usage.

Turn off location services, GPS

Even when the app isn’t in use, or isn’t running at all, it is still *quietly* draining your battery. Just because you’re not active on Google Maps or Waze doesn’t mean they’re not tracking you, preparing for that second you need their services. Change the settings of your phone to turn off location services.

Turn off push email

It’s less convenient, but will save a huge amount of battery life. Manually checking your mail is not only good for your battery, it’s good for your mental health. You choose when to check in, rather than that red 1 notification checking in on you in the middle of dinner. Regardless of how you choose to check your mail, when you’re in a situation where you really need to save battery, turn off everything “push”.

The perfect way to keep attendees inside the show or bring them to your booth, goCharge’s cell phone charging kiosks are essential at Trade Shows, Conferences, and Conventions because they offer a unique and exceptional sponsorship opportunity. Let’s go through the top five ways goCharge’s cell phone charging stations can improve your next event.

1. Offer a unique space for sponsors. Cell phone charging kiosks are one of the most innovative and popular opportunities for sponsor advertising and branding. Consumers will wait as long as necessary until their phone is charged — resulting in more dwell time and a longer opportunity to engage with them.

2. Use the cell phone charging station as a magnet for your vendor booths. Looking for a universal offering everyone can use to grab attendees’ attention? Many mobile devices will be drained of batteries at trade shows due to long days and few outlets. Offering a free charge for everyone’s cell phones and tablets is the perfect way to attract attendees to your booth.

3. Use cell phone charging stations to CHARGE up your brand activation. Get the most out of all cell phone charging stations can offer by getting creative (and goCharge loves to help with that). We build and design custom charging stations so your target audience can use the charging stations in ways that go beyond just charging their phone. A great example: MLB Advanced Media approached goCharge with a vision of custom cell phone charging stations at MLB stadiums across the nation. Within a few short months, goCharge designed and deployed The MLB Table which can now be found in 27 of the 30 ballparks.

4. Help attendees help you promote your show. “If it’s not on social media, it didn’t happen.” It’s a saying that rings true these days, and we all know that posting on social media is impossible with a low or dead cell phone battery. Keep your attendees satisfied and charged up—and boost your event’s user generated content—by providing ample cell phone charging stations throughout the space.

5. Lock in brand partnerships for next year. Each year, lock in more recurring partnerships and sponsorships by winning over your advertisers and clients with great results. Cell phone charging stations are multi functional and yield outstanding benefits and engagement results, which increases your chance or long-standing partnerships for years to come.

From suitcases with built in GPS’s to robot furniture, furniture that serves as just furniture is becoming a thing of the past. goCharge offers top class charging tables that serve as functional furniture: grab a beer with friends, socialize around the table (low, medium, or high), and charge your phone all at the same time. When you think about, you wonder, “why doesn’t every table have a charging port?!”

In 2012, MLB approached goCharge with a vision. Within a few short months, goCharge designed and deployed The MLB Table into 19 stadiums around the nation. Today, goCharge is operational in 27 of the 30 ballparks, a definite home-run! Learn more about Custom Charging Tables >>

The Hi-Top & The Coffee Table are the newest products released by goCharge. With all the success of the MLB Table, goCharge wanted to create a smaller table for use in restaurants, bars, universities, retail stores, company campuses, and lounging areas of all sorts. These round glass top tables with spill-proof edges also have several locations for branding and are built to last. Learn more >>

Top Tech for Summer 2017

Top Tech for Summer 2017 – Flicks Mobile Cordless Boombox Projector (280WH)

It’s summer. This means hot days, hot nights, and hot tech. This list of cool gadgets will keep you on trend and serve you in ways you never knew you could be served. Read below and let us know which one is your favorite!

Flicks Mobile Cordless Boombox Projector (280WH)

What’s a boombox projector? Exactly how it sounds—and this one is an all-in-one cordless projector with a dynamic range of sound. This handy device allows you to take the romance and nostalgia of a summer drive-in movie with you wherever you go. The quality of the picture is impressive: 720p HD and it features two custom-designed neodymium drivers for amazing sound quality.

The Sinji Panoramic Smart WiFi Camera

No longer are the days of low-resolution security video footage. Now, you can stream your entire home on your mobile device in a clear 960p, night vision included. Zoom, rotate, and get push notifications for unusual activity, even talk through the device to people within your home—it has two way audio communication. You’ve officially got control over your home’s security.

The reMarkable Tablet by E Ink

We all know physical paper is on the outs. But on its way in is this digital notepad that may as well be paper itself—the screen clones an actual piece of paper with extremely high latency. While the feeling of the stylus against the screen isn’t identical to pen on paper, it feels nice and smooth, and the screen captures what you’re drawing instantly. The tablet comes with a suite of tools to save your work and view them on a desktop or mobile. Remember: it prides itself on not being a tablet. It is a smart notebook made specifically for sketching and drawing, and it’s the best on the market right now.

Bluesmart Suitcase with GPS

Yes, this suitcase will never get lost. Its built-in GPS allows you to follow it wherever it goes, so when that dreaded moment comes where everyone at the baggage claim carousel is gone except you, you’ll whip out your smartphone and find your luggage.Its built in scale ensures you’ll never get charged extra weight baggage fees and its digital locks keeps it secure. You’ll also never run out of battery on your smartphone as long as this suitcase is with you, because its USB port charges your phone up to six times.

Let’s go through the top five ways goCharge’s cell phone charging stations can improve your next event.

  1. Offer more space for your sponsors. Cell phone charging kiosks are one of the most innovative and popular opportunities for sponsor advertising and branding. Consumers are engaged and have long dwell-time, meaning that instead of walking past an ad, they’ll stop, look, and even interact with the ad for much longer than normal. Consumers will wait as long as they need to until their phone is charged, meaning more valuable time can be spent engaging with them from a sponsor’s perspective.
  2. Use the cell phone charging station as a magnet for your vendor booths. Looking for a universal offering everyone could use in order to grab attendees’ attention? Trade shows and conventions are long, which means many mobile devices will be drained of batteries. Offering a free charge for everyone’s cell phones and tablets is the perfect way to grab their attention and thus increase the chance of making a sale.
  3. Turn cell phone charging stations into a brand activation. Get the most out of all that cell phone charging stations have to offer by getting creative (and goCharge loves to help with that). We can build and design custom charging stations so your target audience can use the charging stations in ways that go beyond just charging their phone.

By | Cell Phone Charging, Music Festivals, Outdoor Events, Trade Shows

goCharge Solar Cell Phone Charging Station - "The Solar System"goCharge Solar Cell Phone Charging Station – “The Solar System”There is nothing that says “Clean Energy” more than goCharge’s Solar Charging Station: “The Solar System.” goCharge was honored to be a part of the opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC last weekend. Check out our SolarSystem Charging Stations!

The beauty of these cell phone charging stations is:

  1. Good for your brand and event: They provide a gathering area for attendees to discuss the event while they power up, leaving them relaxed and carefree — and importantly — easily able to post on social media about the event without worrying about a dying cell phone battery.
  2. Good for the environment: The Solar System is an all-weather, vandal proof charging solution that can withstand up to 50 mph winds and moderate to severe rain. When the sun is shining, the system is completely powered by solar energy. When the sun goes down, the batteries become operational and at full usage, the Solar System will last up to 12 hours.
  3. You can cut the cord: Gone are the days of attendees tripping over long winding cords running across a field to charge something. The Solar System is completely cord-free — meaning you have the freedom to place it, move it, and change its position to wherever you want, whenever you want. There is no more freedom than this.

Call us and we’ll be happy to tell you more about goCharge’s Solar System could be the big game-changer at your next event.
