You probably know the feeling all too well: That sinking sensation in your stomach when you pull your phone out of your pocket on a frigid day and in the short time you've been outside, your phone went from 100 percent battery to 70 percent almost instantly. Or worse—you’re greeted by a blank screen because it has died altogether. A not so subtle reminder that our cell phones are NOT designed to perform in extreme temperatures!
While many of us wouldn’t think about leaving our phones in the blazing hot sunlight, we often forget how taxing the cold weather can be on our favorite pieces of technology.
A Protective Bag Makes All the Difference
Prevent, Conserve & Preserve
Charge It. Make sure your phone is fully charged before leaving the house, with any additional batteries charged, as well. You want to make sure your phone is working at its full capacity so it powers up when and where you need it!
Go Wireless. AirPods or other wireless headphones are a great option for allowing you to keep your phone in your insulated bag while talking or listening to music, and can alert you to incoming emails or messages without you having to pull out your phone to constantly check for updates.
Back It Up. If you know you'll be in the cold for an extended period and not able to recharge, bringing along a rechargeable battery case can be your phone’s life saver. But don't forget to keep this in your WELLinsulated bag too!
