While children in the United States had Superman to look up to back in the 60s, the children of Japan had a 40-meter tall alien to defend them against Kaiju threats in the form of Ultraman. Kaiju’s were either giant ancient or giant alien monsters, not unlike Godzilla (although they never crossed paths) who were out to destroy Earth. Ultraman dispatched his enemies through his martial arts skills and his signature “Specium Ray” move, although most of the time (actually all the time), he would run out of power before he could finish the enemy and an indicator in his chest would annoyingly blink to inform him (and his enemy) that he is especially vulnerable.

I don’t even know why Ultraman just seemed to have barely enough power to finish off one monster every episode.  Maybe he didn’t eat his alien veggies when he was a kid so he wasn’t as strong as he could be. I couldn’t exactly blame him for not bringing a backup battery for recharging on the battlefield. however, as battery technology wasn’t exactly advanced back in the 60s. Their computers were still using punch cards and took up an entire floor, so I doubt they had a pocket-sized battery charger technology. Besides, Ultraman’s suit didn’t have any pockets. 

Thankfully, we live in an age where portable battery technology is available.  With phones and tablets being an important part of our lives to stave off that giant monster called “boredom”, keeping a spare battery charger handy in the car or in a drawer is just a smarter move.  Also, the last thing you need is not having enough battery to complete a 911 call when an actual Kaiju starts attacking the city.  Many manufacturers are offering different solutions with different capacities, one of them being Thermaltake’s premium Luxa2 line that has a 7000mAh battery charger available.
