Today I ordered two portable AC power banks (which I refer to as “camping batteries”) which I have bought (same brand, model, and seller) and used in the past (but I lost both of the two “camping batteries” (which feature an LCD screen displaying the percentage of battery life remaining) and have been living without any “camping batteries” for approximately half a year). My (~$400) Hewlett-Packard laptop computer has a battery life of approximately 2 cumulative hours when fully charged. Each of those “camping batteries” (~$100 each) also has a battery life of approximately 2 cumulative hours and can be used to extend the battery life of my laptop, (~$80) phone, and other electronic devices (which means that I will be able to use my laptop for a total of approximately 10 cumulative hours between charging sessions if I drain each of those batteries completely after each of them are charged to full capacity in one session (and I have a surge protector which plugs into exactly one AC outlet and which has six separate AC outlets on it which I can plug multiple devices into simultaneously so that their batteries can charge simultaneously)). I ordered those two camping batteries from Amazon dot Com today and set them to be delivered to an Amazon locker at the Lucky’s grocery store in Castro Valley, California. My purpose for ordering those two “camping batteries” is to maximize my range of options for where I can use my laptop computer and to minimize how long and often I have to “camp” at a wall outlet in “third place” areas such as Starbucks and BART stations. Not having to make as many trips to the charging stations as often means that I get more “quality time” alone with my computers.
