Charging your phone

Last week we asked everyone how they kept their Android phone or tablet charged up and ready to go. With over 13,000 votes from almost 8,000 of us, it's time to look at the results.

Because this was a multiple choice poll (it's likely that we all use more than one method to charge our Androids), we expected to see the number of us using the charger that came in the box pretty high. It clocks in at 50-percent, which isn't nearly as high as I thought it would be. Maybe it's because some phones come with a charger that's not so premium, or folks already have a nice charger from a previous phone, or something else. I dunno. If you're not using the charger that came with your phone, please tell us all why in the comments. Enquiring minds need to know these things!

Poll results

After that, things even out. We all use our phones differently, and we all charge them differently. That's a good thing, because it will keep the folks making these phones looking for more and better ways to keep them juiced up and last longer between "juicing."

One thing that jumps out to me while looking — what charger(s) are people using? There are so many to choose from, and it would be nice to see the best options available. That's where you can help again — tell us in the comments which chargers you use (and why), and help us spend some company money!
