Top 7 Business Gadgets with Great Battery Life

“For business users, poor battery life is more than just a nuisance: A dead smartphone, tablet or laptop means you can’t work when you need to. Speedy performance, high-resolution displays and handy software won’t get you far if your device is out of juice. Good battery life often comes at the expense of good specs, but it doesn’t have to. Here are seven powerful mobile devices from 2013 that will keep you working all day long. Bear in mind that all battery-life estimates indicate runtime with continuous use; with average use, expect these devices to last till bed time.”

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

The Galaxy Note 3 might just be the best business phone ever made, and its long battery life helps earn it that title. Samsung managed to cram in a big 3,200-mAh battery behind the Note 3’s 5.7-inch display, so expect the device to comfortably last through your workday and beyond — about 10 to 11 hours of continuous use. That’s no small feat for such a powerhouse handset. In addition to sporting a huge screen, the Note 3 is blazingly fast. Both of those features make the built-in Multi Window feature — which allows you to run two apps side by side — even better. Moreover, the included S Pen stylus is a huge plus for business users.


If you need battery life above all else, this is the smartphone for you. Lasting up to 13 hours of continuous use, the LG G2 outlasts just about every smartphone on the market. The phone pairs great battery life with a roomy 5.2-inch display and a fast quad-core processor. And alongside Samsung, LG is one of the few smartphone makers packing in true multitasking functionality. The G2 QSlide function lets you open multiple apps on the home screen in separate windows. That’s a plus for business users who need to juggle tasks such as responding to email while conducting research in a Web browser.
