The one, very prominent advantage a bar phone has over a Smartphone is its battery time. A typical Nokia bar phone runs for complete 48 hours on a single time charge. This is true because of lower resolution, no video or picture viewing option, and no applications that drain your battery out.

There are ever increasing applications, usage, and features on smartphones and tablets, which are heavy on the battery causing it to run out quicker. This kills the whole purpose of the mobility of cell phones. The battery runs out quicker, and it becomes a problem for people who are amidst some emergency traveling, or where there is no electrical supply. This problem gave a push to the development of portable power banks.

These power banks are easily connectable to smartphones through the USB port and depending on bank’s capacity; the phone can be recharged multiple times before the power bank runs out.
