9 in 10 Smartphone Users Are Dealing With “Low Battery Anxiety”



    By: Frank Lee, director, public relations, LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc.


    Are you regularly accused of secretly “borrowing” someone else’s charger?  Have you ever ordered something at a bar or restaurant just so you can ask to plug in your phone? Do you currently own 3 or more smartphone charging cables – one for every occasion – so one is always ready at your disposal?



    If you’re guilty of any of the above, you may be suffering from the concept of “Low Battery Anxiety[1]”.   This unsettling feeling happens when your phone battery drops below 20%.



    Although not a real illness or anxiety disorder, LG coined “low battery anxiety” to exemplify real behavior. People are changing their everyday lives – just to accommodate their dying battery.



    Think you’ve got the syndrome?  Check your “symptoms.” Have you:

    1. Asked a total stranger to charge your smartphone?
    2. Argued with a significant other or romantic interest because of unanswered calls or texts?
    3. Ordered something at a bar or restaurant just to use their power outlet?
    4. Secretly 'borrowed' someone else's charger?
    5. Bought 3 or more smartphone charging cables?



    If you answered “yes” to few of those, chances are you’re an acute case.


    Not every smartphone nowadays can withstand life’s next daylong adventure. But LG is committed to producing devices that can.


    Meet the all-new LG X power™ – the smartphone that gives heavy media users more power to do what they love with less worry. It boasts up to 2 full days of battery life and can do it all – with battery to spare.



    So go ahead – take it on a movie marathon, snap shots from morning to night, or be the impromptu party DJ.  If you’re in a pinch, refuel faster with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, so you can wait less and play more.


    The LG X power is available today at cricketwireless.com and Cricket Wireless stores across the country for $99.99 for a limited time.  Plus, click here for a limited time $50 manufacturer’s mail-in rebate offer by LG, or visit: http://www.lg.com.com/us/xpower-promo[2].
