#Korea and mobile phones

Everyone has a mobile phone here.  Landlines are fairly unheard of for most homes.  Many Pepe carry a second battery for their phones with them.  Sadly battery technology has not caught up with mobile phone demands.  I can stretch out the beret in my Galaxy Tab 8.9 to 12 hours or so, under light use.  I can also kill it in about 4 under heavy use without video.  Haven’t tried doing a lot of video and I know there is a game that just burns the processor really warm, which in sure will chew a battery life up pretty good.

So, it should come to no surprise to find battery charging stations around the city.


I have seen such devices at subway stations too in Seoul.  These are free to use and many times with subway stations, you might even get a computer to browse the internet :)

You can also go to many stores and who for a charge as well.  Never really stuck for power here.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
