4 Cell Phone Accessories That’ll Make Your Phone Last

These tech gadgets can help you get the most use possible out of your smartphone.

1. Protective Cases

You should, of course, check that your case has the appropriate apertures for your phone’s ports and camera lenses and is compatible with any features unique to your phone, such as wireless charging.

But most significantly, you should think about the substance a case is comprised of. Although popular because to their small, simplistic design and basic level of protection, silicone and rubber cases don’t absorb as much impact. Therefore, they might not always act in the best protective manner. To ensure protection, you don’t need to select the heaviest, sturdiest case you can find; instead, there are sturdy, attractive polycarbonate and TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) plastic cases available.

However, we advise Gear4 cases, which are available at CPR and come with impact protection material, if you want the maximum amount of flair and protection.

2. Screen Protectors

Screen covers come in two primary categories: tempered glass and plastic. Although plastic can work, our professionals advise using tempered glass screen protectors instead because they are more durable and resistant to impact and scratches. Additionally, they provide your phone’s screen a smooth feel without impairing the touchscreen’s sensitivity.

The hardest conditions won’t harm a tempered glass screen protector with Invisible Shield technology, protecting your phone’s screen from most breaks and scratches. A limited lifetime warranty is also included with each InvisibleShield screen protector.

3. PopSockets

A PopSocket will let you hold your phone even more firmly. They are not only fashionable, but they also provide excellent protection, especially when combined with the appropriate case and screen protector. PopSockets provide you an additional object to grab onto, reducing the likelihood that you will drop your phone.

The next time you extend your arm to take the ideal group picture, you won’t have to worry because they make it easier for you to hold your phone one-handed, regardless of whether you have the huge iPhone 13 Pro Max or Pixel 6 Pro. You may select from a variety of colors, patterns, and modifications for PopSockets, which also function easily as a kickstand.

4. Chargers

We are constantly advised not to reach for the charger as soon as our gadget reaches 80%. Did you realize, however, that totally emptying your battery is also bad for the battery health of your phone?

So’s acceptable to let your phone complete a full charge cycle once in a while, but avoid doing it frequently. Your phone’s battery life and functionality may suffer if you let the battery level drop to 0%. The same goes for continuing to charge it when it reaches 100%. According to charging best practices, you should typically top off your phone anytime it drops below 50% and should keep it charged between 30% and 90% of the time.

To prevent your phone battery from constantly draining, it’s a good idea to always have a trustworthy charger on hand. To help you keep charged at home, at work, or while traveling, Mophie® offers a variety of wireless chargers, power banks, and portable chargers.

With the correct protective gear, you can extend the life of your phone. Even so, CPR Cell Phone Repair has the specialists to tackle anything from surface scratches and cracks to inside erosion and damage if life somehow manages to get the better of you. To schedule a broken screen repair or to purchase accessories like screen protectors, phone cases, chargers, and more, locate a CPR store nearby.
