You’d think it’d be safe to assume that my iPhone’s battery would last long enough to survive a day at University to attend a lecture: a 5 hour round trip (including said lecture). As the evening slowly creeps in and I get home, I realise my house keys are, in fact, on the other side of the locked door. To my horror, I watch as my phone battery goes from 40% straight down to 1%. Then it just cuts out. Black. Nothingness. So whilst sat on the front doorstep of my house with two first world problems, I came up with a list of 30 things that last longer than an iPhone battery…
