Pokemon GO, the game who took over the whole world, managed not only to become one of the most popular applications ever, but also to help the portable devices’ market as well. As we know, this app implies that the player should go outside and look for those little creatures. If you want your journey to keep going, you must charge your phone no matter where you are. And that is how portable battery pack sales doubled after Pokemon GO was released.
The report was published by NPD Group, an analytics company. It releaved that portable battery pack increased by 101% percent in only two weeks in comparison with last year, in the same period. The huge popularity Pokemon GO has drove to a high demand for devices that can charge your phone anywhere, anytime. There are many people in our society who blame this game, but we highly doubt that the manufacturers of this battery are one of them.
This application is using most the smartphone capabilities, including location features, motion sensors and the camera. This leads to poor battery life for mobile devices and tablets. So it is no surprise that all those who play the game want to have portable battery packs. This is the only way they can accomplish the game’s tasks such as catching, training or fighting gym battles.
Most of the consumers that buy portable battery are IOS Users. Niantic Labs disabled the battery saver mode for Apple’s products. The Android users can choose this option, but the battery won’t last longer.
Companies all over the world are using Pokemon GO to sell their products, but the manufactures of portable battery pack are the luckiest as they do not need to attract consumers. Gamers will come to them if they want to enjoy cathing Pokemon for a long time. There are some people who fear that their battery performance will decrease because of the portable devices. This thing can be possible depending on what smartphone you are using.
Pokemon GO is on the rise and this was a major help for the portable battery pack market. We will see how long this phenomenon will last and if the sales will rise even more.
