Nowadays, it’s fairly commonplace to be tracked when using the internet. Between location services, cookies, malware and more, users go about their business comfortably knowing that at least some portion of their online activity is being tracked. Another tracking method has been revealed by two researchers from Stanford University, and its not something that would immediately come to mind- battery status. Continue Reading
If you’ve been in the market for a charging cable for your mobile device, you’ve most likely encountered “quick charging” or “rapid charging” cables. Between the off-brand companies promising a faster charge and the oversaturation of cheap USB charging options, the lure of a fast recharge tempts many consumers into purchasing the “faster” and often times more expensive option.

How does Rapid Charging Work?
Tracking the spread of a disease can be incredibly difficult, especially if there isn’t much reliable data to work with. Scientists who study the spread of disease have typically relied on computer models that focus on the patterns of human movement and travel which are largely based on predictions and estimates. Now that an overwhelming majority of people carry cell phones, these scientists are turning to mobile phone records to gather more accurate data about population movements. Continue Reading

At ChargeMethod, we offer a multitude of great cell phone charging devices. But although many are small and portable, they still must be carried in a pocket or purse. What if you had a wearable device that collected solar energy, and provided an extra 3 hours of talk time with a single charge? Continue Reading
Since our reliance on smartphones have long since eclipsed current battery technology, it may seem strange that inventors haven’t begun employing more alternative methods of energy generation and storage. The sun, magnets, and kinetic motion are all forms of energy that can be harnessed and converted into electricity to power mobile devices.
