the entire day without the phone dying on us. External battery packs are an answer but that could mean unnecessary bulk and sometimes could mean that we need to bring with us an additional device wherever we go. Well Francois Rybarczyk has thought of that and might have come up with a solution with the HTC Autonome mobile phone concept.
The idea behind the Autonome is that it is a smartphone with an
external battery embedded into the device. This gets rid of unnecessary
bulk and at the same time will provide users with a backup source of
battery should they forget to bring their chargers out with them. The
external battery is fitted into the back of the phone (as pictured above) and can be easily slid out. It will also feature
its own two-prong AC wall adapter so you will be able to charge your
device and the external battery wherever you go.
What do you guys think? Is this a feature you’d like to see
manufacturers incorporate into phones in the future? And while this is
purely on the aesthetic front, how would you feel about the gaping hole
in your phone while the external battery is charging?
