It’s not just a wild, wild world anymore. It’s also a wired, wired one. That’s a tricky mix for parents to manage. If you’ve decided your child is ready for an iPhone, it’s a good idea to monitor their activity, limit the phone’s functionality, and provide a backup iPhone power charger:
1.Monitor your child’s mobile activity. Help your child learn self-control by setting clear boundaries and rules for their phone usage—things like no exorbitant amounts of phone time, no sharing personal information with strangers, and no freely surfing the web with reckless abandon. Shop for apps that can help you with this important job of monitoring (and limiting) your child’s phone usage.
2.Limit the functionality of the phone. There are times when the iPhone’s seemingly limitless power is thrilling, but when the phone is in your child’s hands is probably not one of them. Not only can total iPhone freedom get very expensive but also it can get dangerous. Decide what purposes the phone is supposed to serve for your child, and then set up the phone so that it serves just those purposes. For example, if the phone is meant for your child to reach someone in case of emergency or to simply check in, then program the phone so that outbound calls are limited to 911 and those few important phone numbers.
3.Equip your child with backup power. You know how scary it would be if you were in an emergency situation and discovered your phone had no battery power left? Imagine what it would be like for your child. Imagine how many more situations just feel like emergencies to kids. Then put a Rayovac PS71 External Battery Back Up in your child’s backpack, locker, or gym bag—anywhere it might come in handy. With this ultra-compact external iPhone power charger, it won’t matter if your child has forgotten to recharge the phone or used it to death. They’ll have emergency power at the ready.

See there? Over those hills where the robin-egg sky meets the plains of waving wheat? Look at the highway cutting a black line under a family car whizzing along with its hubcaps gleaming. There’s something strapped to the roof - a kayak maybe? They’re on vacation! Isn’t it sweet? Well, it could be, but they forgot their iPhone backup battery. Let’s zoom in so we can hear:
Are we there yet?
I told you already, two more hours to go.
Are you lost, dear?
Shhh. I didn’t expect to have to power off the GPS before we got there!
Dad, can you look on your iPhone for the nearest rest stop? I have to go potty.
[giggle] You said “potty!”
Your mother gobbled the power playing Draw Something. Phone’s almost dead.
I did not! You forgot to charge it last night!
Can I play Angry Birds after we go potty?
Didn’t you hear me? The battery is dying. Try playing I Spy.
I spy, with my little eye, a pimple on my sister’s face.
Shut up! Moooom! I need to call Stacy! More...

There are a whole lot of things you can do in 2 hours but finding a way to extend the battery on your iPhone may not be one that comes to mind first. With 2 hours, you could:
- Watch an entire blockbuster movie
- Beat the record for fastest marathon by three minutes
- Get a full cycle of REM sleep
- Play nine holes of golf
- Take the Mensa admission test
- Listen to “Bohemian Rhapsody” 20 times
In 2 hours you can even talk on your mobile phone after its internal battery has died – seriously! It just takes a little forethought and the right tool to extend your phone’s usability.

Just pop it into your purse, glove compartment, or even coat pocket, and you’re golden.

There’s probably never going to be an emergency game of ‘Words with Friends’ or a critical moment at which you need to “like” someone’s picture on Facebook that requires immediate power for the best battery for iPhone. But when it comes to things like calling 911, doing a phone interview for a new job, or snapping and sharing pictures of your new baby’s first moments of life, you really can’t afford to find your phone battery near death.
If you’ve ever found yourself without iPhone power in a critical moment, you know your phone is really so much more than a toy. That’s why you need to be asking yourself not just what the best battery for iPhone users is, but also what the best portable power sources are – for all your mobile devices. We’ve got a few solutions that can save the day.
- Our PS68 On-The-Go Charger is the most portable of our solutions and can revive any Apple or micro-USB device while on the go. It holds a charge for up to 12 months and provides 60 minutes of talk time.

Angry Birds, status updates, online shopping – these are the light and fluffy side of owning an iPhone. They can stand to wait until you get home to recharge.
