If you have been enjoying playing Pokemon GO but find your battery life is considerably affected by the extended gameplay, you may be interested in a new 3D printed Pokédex battery case which is being created using ABS.
The Pokédex battery case offers an additional 2600 mAh to help you extend your hunting time considerably and is finished in classic Pokédex red which can be given a high sheen using a acetone polish.
You’re three miles from the trailhead, you didn’t plan on walking three miles for lunch, but while you were re-stocking at the PokéStop you spotted a nearby Ninetails. You’ve been tracking it for an hour now and you’re finally face to face with the magnificent beast. Pokéball number one misses by a mile; what are you doing??? Pokéball number two flies over Ninetails as it lunges for you. Poor timing.
Finally, a third pokéball arcs beautifully into the air and comes to land directly on Ninetails’s head. Your heartbeat quickens as Ninetails disappears and the fateful pokéball falls to the ground. Ninetails is nearly yours and then… nothing. A black screen: Your smartphone battery is dead flat. Not only is Ninetails gone, along with any hope of catching ‘em all… but you’re in the middle of nowhere with no phone or GPS.…for a Pokémon…again.
Pokémon Go seems to have been engineered specifically to test the limits of smartphone performance. To play the game you need to have GPS, mobile data and the LCD screen running pretty much full blast. On top of that, the processor is constantly updating and rendering a live map and trying to keep track of your items and effects. Add to that the camera and image processing that happens during a Pokémon battle and your battery life can start looking really dismal.
