Picture the scene. You're out and about when you feel a little vibrate in your pocket. You go to check your phone to see if it's a message from your mum asking what you want for tea. But it's your phone telling you that you've got LESS THAN 10% BATTERY REMAINING - and there's no charger in sight.

Do you a) shrug it off 'cos it's no biggie and you can live life phone-free, or do you b) freak the EFF out and wonder what will ever become of you when your phone inevitably dies thanks to this low battery warning of doom.

A recent survey conducted by researchers at LG Electronics has proved that low battery anxiety is a very real, very common thing that affects a whole lot of people, with 9 out of 10 people surveyed reporting that they experience "panic" when their phone battery drops below 20%.

LG have officially dubbed this phenomenon "low battery anxiety" so technically it's not a real medical disorder (yet) - but the stats proving the way it affects peoples' day to day life is pretty mind-blowing. 

The survey found that 32% of people are willing to "drop everything" to return home to fetch their smartphone chargers, and that 22% of smartphone users will order something at a bar or restaurant JUST so they have a place to charge their phone. Literally same.

39% of people would be totally cool with asking total strangers to charge their phone, and 35% admitted to "secretly borrowing" someone else's charger. Desperate times you guys, desperate times.

And that's why portable phone chargers are the best inventions of all time ever. The end. Check out all our tips for making your phone battery last way longer RIGHT HERE.
