We’ve all been there – waiting on the platform for the train that never seems to arrive, looking to your smartphone for entertainment and finding the battery icon blinking.
Or perhaps you’re desperate to send that crucial email, but your power pack just isn’t up to the task of being there when you need it the most.
With the Samsung GALAXY Note II you can make those scenarios a distant memory, as the superb high-power battery pack combined with a wide range of cool charging accessories can not only keeps you going day after day, but also allows you to use your Note II in new and exciting ways.
The Samsung GALAXY Note II comes with one of the largest batteries on the market, with the 3100mAh capacity offering you an incredible 890 hours of standby time to keep you going throughout the day.
But should you want to take things further and keep your Note II running for longer, Samsung has a huge number of ways to keep you from ever running out of power.
We all walk into the office, sit down and throw our phone down on the desk. But why not use this time to turn your GALAXY Note II into a photo frame, email sidekick or even a fully-fledged computing experience?
Plug in Samsung's dedicated Desktop Dock and you'll have your phone at the perfect angle to see all your content in one place, with the sturdy base meaning your hapless prods will never cause your handset to fall onto the surface, and will keep your battery charged up ready for the trip home.
But maybe you want to take things further - after all, with a quad core processor, 2GB of RAM and a tonne of inbuilt software, your Note II has the power to act as a proper PC with the Smart Dock.
This insanely well-connected stand has a plethora of ports to allow you to multi-task in the most efficient way - without draining your battery. Plug in a keyboard, connect up a Bluetooth mouse and use the HDMI connection to pump your work onto the big screen and you'll be able to get the most out of your Note II's powerful innards.
And, like the standard Desktop Dock, the stand will also function as a standard charging port that allows you to see your favourite pics sliding by to help make the working day that little bit more palatable if you’ve already got a PC up and running.
Extra power when you need it
Let's not forget those times where you might not be near a power source - be it navigating on the camping trip in the countryside, recording video when out at a festival or simply visiting the parents without a spare power socket by the bed. With the Note II's removable battery you can always have extra voltage available using Samsung's Extra Battery Kit.
The subtle dock features the same sturdy base as the Smart and Desktop Dock, but has a separate holder for a spare battery behind. So while you get a stylish desktop stand for your handset, you can whip out the extra battery pack for peace of mind on the trip away.
Plus the Extra Battery Kit features a clever LED display that lets you know when the secondary power unit is ready and fully-charged.
Note on the go
It's not all about the desktop docks though; we all have times when we're on the move and want to still get the most out of our Samsung GALAXY Note II.
When in the car you'll want to make use of the inbuilt sat nav feature on your Note II, which works brilliantly thanks to the large 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen. With the official Samsung Car Charger you'll get the optimum power into your handset so you don't come off a marathon drive to see friends with no way to phone home.
The USB charger interacts with your Note II to automatically shut off when it's fully charged, meaning you never have to drain your car battery when your handset doesn't need any more power. The durable and flexible cord gives you portability on the go too, so you won't need to worry about getting tangled up.
If you want to use that larger screen more effectively though, you'll want to make sure the Note II is always safely in your eye line when driving. The iOttie One-Touch windshield and dashboard car mount comes to your aid here, giving an easy way to store your phone on the long drives when using it as a sat nav system.
Use the phone in portrait or landscape mode and stick the car mount to the dashboard or to the windscreen glass, so you'll know no matter where you're charging and how long you're navigating, streaming music to your stereo or using the Note II to make hands free calls, you'll never see the phone drop or run out of power.
And finally there's the humble Samsung Travel Charger for your GALAXY Note II - giving you the flexibility to charge anywhere without needing to worry about taking up a huge amount of space in your suitcase or overnight bag.
The removable front pin means the Charger will fold down to almost flat so you can easily get your hands on it when you want a quick battery top up.
The Samsung GALAXY Note II is one of the most fully-featured handsets on the market with a host of cool new features you'll want to play with again and again. Make sure you never run out of juice with Samsung's great range of charging accessories and keep the magic flowing no matter where you are.
