In the early days of cellphones, the cost of an iPhone was $599, and Samsung’s Galaxy S7 was $549.
Those days are over.
Today, a cheap smartphone can be had for about $50, which is a steal.
But what about the cost-per-hour (C/E) of the battery?
The typical phone battery lasts about 18 hours of use before needing replacing.
But you can add a new one in a matter of days, and you’ll still be paying $50 for a battery that lasts a full month.
And the battery lasts longer than that, since the battery requires more power to charge.
So a new battery can be purchased for about half of what a new iPhone would cost.
And if you don’t want to use the phone for too long, you can also use it as a power backup, with a charging dock.
There’s also an upgrade option for people who use smartphones for a few hours per day.
So, in the long run, a new smartphone battery is probably a pretty good deal.
But it might not be worth the money if you’re just using it as your backup phone.
