So, WW knows now that she has a responsibility to ensure her battery has charge when she goes out.

A few times now she has left the house with v low battery and its run out while she's out. I'm pulled her up on this a few times and she agrees she needs to ensure it has enough charge.

This is so that I can contact her should I need to. (also so she can be tracked but she doesn't know this)

I have been able to confirm where she has been and with who the times this has happened but I'm just not happy with it.

It just doesn't sound like a remorseful WW.

Is she out with a vehicle? If so get her a car charger and then there can be no excuse.

You know what? You need to get her a 'Power Rock" . It is basically a portable 'block' that can have one to two full charges on it. They can be carried in a car, purse, pocket or brief case. When there is no wall outlet to be had, you can charge using this thing.

I bought my WH the same thing when he would be at conferences for long periods of time. Sometimes wall outlets would be outside the venue where he would leave his phone to charge. Well, what good was that doing ME. LOL!

His phone ran out of battery fast and still does because of all the apps and things running on it that his company loads onto it. Solved my problem of being panicky. I didn't think he was doing anything no on the up and up, but it made me feel better. And he didn't mind.

I think there are many different kinds too under different names.

Good luck!

I wouldn't get her anything. I'd make suggestions to solutions and let her solve the problem. If she chooses not to solve the problem then you know where her heart is and what importance she places on this.

Exactly what I think. I'm sick of doing all the work!

When I was away for a guys trip at 4 months after DDay, I was worried about my phone battery. So I got BOTH a car charger and portable charger.

Even now, if I forget to plug in my phone or I'm using it a lot and the battery runs down, I will almost always warn BW that my battery is low.

I consider all of that my job. I want my BW to feel safe. Even though I mess up sometimes, I still have the best intentions.

Here's an idea that my WBF uses:

What kind of phone does your WW have?

ANY android phone has a removable battery. You can buy a spare battery and charge it in the phone. Once its charged, remove it and put in your old battery back in. She can keep this spare battery in her purse. My WBF keeps his in his wallet and even if he doesn't use it for a month, it still keeps nearly a full charge.

Problem SOLVED.

If she has an Iphone then forget it, because you can't take the battery out!

Also, Best Buy (or amazon, ebay) sells Mophie Juice packs. She could also keep one of those in her purse, but a spare battery should only cost you about $20. Just make sure you get an original OEM battery.

Hope this helps!!

This.

This is her responsibility. She needs to own it. I have had one or two situations shortly after Dday when I was unreachable due to phone issues and I was physically uncomfortable and both times used a friends phone to text my husband to explain.

She really needs to own this. This is a simple fix.
