ACen is 3 days long.

Before you leave the house make sure you have your cell phone charger.

I can sum up what many people will say when you ask to use their phone charger in one graphic below:

I carry my charger everywhere with me because one never knows when the battery will run past 30%.

This is why I have 2-3 chargers for my phone laying around and in my bags/purses so I usually am not without one. Otherwise I would forget it.

LMAO at the picture! Where's the like button when you need it?

Yeah I made sure to have it with me at all times. My phone is my everything pretty much camera and communicator. Only thing "Maybe" ACen (or Donald E./Hyatt) could consider is working with some phone companies to have charging stations in the con more. I know C2E2 has had some and Wizard World might have (sorry if wrong, fuzzy memory) but I'm not sure what kind of negotiations or money would be required. Either way, I think this is something that does require some self responsibility to bring your charger (I always have one in my bag.)

This would be a perfect addition to the "Con Personal Care" booth - a cellphone charging booth too. Maybe you pay $2 to check-in your phone for a few hours, and come back when it's charged. XD

Why WOULDN'T you bring your charger?

Matter of fact I reminded myself of not bringing my cord for my MP3 player two years ago. It lasted the trip though, so I can't really get mad at myself.
