      #32536 - 02/03/09 08:48 PM

Energizer has launched its mobile product line and they've conducted a survey recently on smartphone users who are men ages 24-35 and saw into their love for gadgets and needs for more battery power. Here are some snippets from the survey:

Gadgets before love?

This Valentine's Day, Cupid might have better luck sending his arrow through text message. When asked to choose between their significant other and their smartphone, 44-percent of men said they'd either give up their significant other or "seriously have to think about it." This recent survey, conducted by Energizer's Energi To Go, confirms that some guys just aren't willing to give up their gadgets in exchange for that special someone.

So, will the attachment to one?s smartphone interfere with the one day a year celebrated by daters and couples alike? Considering 45% of guys surveyed said they "can't live without their smartphone,? chocolates and roses just might take the back seat on this day of love.

More power for their smartphone!

?The most commonly used smartphone was Blackberry (34%) followed by the iPhone (17%)

?Those surveyed have to charge their smartphone at least every day (40%), but a small percentage (8%) charge their Smart phones more than once a day.

?Although Web connectivity is considered the most favorite feature (64%), it?s also the feature that drains Smart phone batteries the fastest (58%).

?The majority of smartphone users surveyed say ?bad battery? (drains quickly, needs to be charged often, etc.) is their least favorite aspect (60%).

?Some other interesti8ng uses of smartphones, beyond calling, texting or using the Internet include: GPS, Digital camera, Timer/alarm clock and flashlight.
