If you’ve ever been skiing, you know that the cold weather can wreak havoc on your phone’s battery life. Luckily, there are a few tricks that you can use to keep your phone warm and functioning while you hit the slopes.
The first trick is to use hand warmers. Simply put a hand warmer in your glove or pocket next to your phone and it will help to keep it warm and prevent it from shutting off due to the cold. If you have access to conventional hand warmers, you can even put them in a ziplock bag to preserve them for later use.
If you don’t have hand warmers, you can create a makeshift one using a double-A battery and some tinfoil. Wrap the battery in tinfoil and it will cause a short circuit that will heat it up. The larger the amperage of the battery, the hotter it will get, so C or D batteries are the best option.
Finally, if you need a heat source that will last a long time, you can create a candle-powered fire starter. Melt down a candle and dip a piece of paper in the wax. The paper will burn for a long time and can be used to start fires or keep your hands warm.
With these tips, you can keep your phone warm and functioning while you enjoy your time on the slopes. Just remember to stay warm yourself by bundling up and staying safe. Happy skiing!
