What’s the worst experience that your smart device has ever taken you through? There must be at least one or two. In most instances, batteries tend to play games when you wish that they won’t. Imagine spending the whole day scaling the height of a mountain, and just when you think of capturing the first photo, the battery decides to take some rest on your behalf.
