The new Innergie Pocketcell™ Duo is an ultra-compact, rechargeable battery bank with 6,800amH capacity basically enough for 4 smartphone charges. It fits neatly into your pocket or handbag so great if you’re always on the go or going travelling.

It has two built-in USB ports and it features the  Magic Cable Trio. This cable features an Apple-compliant tip, plus a micro USB and mini USB tip, so you won’t be digging in your bag searching for the right charger any more. It gives you the flexibility to plug in any over 10,000 different USB-chargeable devices anytime, anywhere.

You can add hours of life to your mobile devices, including iPads and other tablets, Apple, Android and Blackberry smartphones, and many other USB-rechargeable portable devices, like iPods, cameras, game consoles and media players quickly and easily.

Smart Charge

The intelligent device has been designed to detect which USB port is being used and how much power is required to boost the battery life of the mobile device that is being charged. So whether you are using one or both USB ports on the PocketCell™ Duo, it only delivers the required battery boost and then automatically stops charging your device. When you need to recharge your PocketCell™ Duo, just plug it into your laptop, mains or car charger.

Use your Android phone as a sensor system

MaxMon is a free Android app that lets you use an Android phone as a monitoring system. Rather than just using your personal phone to connect to the internet and find out what your sensor is reporting, the MaxMon app turns your phone into a data collecting device.
The MaxMon app monitors mains power and vibration using sensors built into the phone (with a shake-to-alert feature useful for people in distress) and if you have Wi-Fi at your remote location you don’t even need a SIM in the phone, or a mobile phone contract.

Great uses for MaxMon include monitoring elderly relatives living alone, boats in marinas, unoccupied properties and so on. MaxMon are very keen to stress the social benefits of their app and the lost cost nature of their business. Not only is the app free to download and able to run on cheap hardware, but the entire business was started with just £10k. Founder Martin Lambert is over the moon with this, saying he “burned through $50M+ of investment” in his previous venture.

If you need extra sensing capability such as temperature, humidity or motion monitoring you can purchase an external gadget (the cutely named Quatropus – picture above) from MaxMon that connects to your phone and enhances its inbuilt sensors.
