Get ready for it... June is #MobileFit Month!

We're looking forward to making June the month we dedicate to the intersection of technology and fitness. We're going to explore and highlight fitness, diet and health apps for your platform. We're going to explore accessories that help you get the most of your workout. We'll look at connected devices that will help you achieve your fitness goals. June is where we all get #MobileFit.

You'll find great content focused on fitness all month across iMore, Android Central, CrackBerry and Windows Phone Central. This year, #MobileFit will be hosted by Connectedly – our newest community dedicated to the next era of connected devices. Things like smartwatches and wearables are leading the current charge to the next generation of health and fitness, which is why we want to use Connectedly, and their forums, as our basecamp for fitness. You'll still find platform specific content on the site of your choice, but Connectedly is where we'll be hosting content that is more platform agnostic – like which pair of headphones will help you kick ass during your weekend. There you'll also find our #MobileFit Month forum where you can discuss anything and everything related to Mobile Fit during the month of June.

26

While the battery life in our Windows Phone and Windows devices has improved dramatically over the years, there are still times when you need a little boost to make it through the day. The easy solution is finding an outlet and just plug in your Windows Phone or your Surface tablet.

However, when an outlet isn't available a portable, an external battery is a good option to have. RAVPower offers a nice assortment of external batteries and the RP-PB14 Xtreme is one of the beefiest batteries the company offers. The Xtreme battery sports a 2300mAh battery with LCD display and a ton of connection options.

The RAVPower Xtreme is a nice option to consider to cover a wide range of recharging needs but the size may take away from the portability of this battery.
