When it comes time for RWA Nationals this summer, I don’t see myself coughing up exorbitant internet fees on top of everything else, so I plan to make do with my Droid X. I can tweet pictures and blog and manage my Facebook page and everything else from it. (No, I won’t be activating tethering. It’s only $20 for the month, but it’s capped at 2GB and I don’t know how much that is. Going over can cost so very much.)
The question is how to get the battery to last beyond lunch. Right now, with light usage, it’s usually in the orange (at 20-30%) by 8pm. With conference usage, I’m not exaggerating when I say I could see it being almost dead by noon. And with my husband and the Short Kid running amok in the city, I can’t have a dead phone.
So…if you or your significant other has a Droid X, have you invested in an extended battery? Are they worth the money?
How do all keep your smartphones juiced during conferences? I know they make those little packs that enable your phone to suck the life out of AA batteries. Do they work worth a damn? Or there are packs you charge up that act almost like an external battery. Have you used one of those? Do you carry your charger around and try to sneak seats near the outlets?
Any suggestions? I don’t want to wait and try to figure this out (and spend the money) at the last minute.
