Just in time for the new iPhone 4s comes the Third Rail auxiliary battery system , an ingenious way to repower your iPhone while providing an additional backup battery at the same time. The system includes a protective iPhone case with a built-in iPhone charging port, into which you slide the phone, and a battery that snaps onto the case and charges via an included USB cable. Additional Third Rail batteries (sold separately), can be piggybacked on top of the first battery, building a big brick of charge power.

Carlos Cruz, the fourth-leading jockey at Philadelphia Park, was suspended yesterday for a suspected attempt to use an illegal electronic prod in a race there Saturday.

Officers of the Pennsylvania Racing Commission, who had been tipped by an informant, searched Cruz, and then Mucciolo, just before the race was to begin.

Ryan Bell knows that his best friend, fellow captain, and closest confidant will be 60 feet, 6 inches away. It's just a matter of whether David Viselli is behind the plate or atop the pitcher's mound. Either way, Bell says, the two Burlington Township High School baseball stars will see the game the same way. "It's almost like we're the same person," Bell said. "When he's pitching and I'm catching, he never shakes me off. When I'm pitching and he's catching, I never shake him off. "We're both into the game on every pitch.

TOKYO - All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines said they replaced lithium-ion batteries in their Boeing 787 Dreamliners on multiple occasions before a battery-overheating incident led to the worldwide grounding of the jets. ANA said Wednesday that it replaced batteries on its 787 aircraft about 10 times because they failed to charge properly or showed other problems and that it informed Boeing about the swaps. Japan Airlines said it had also replaced lithium-ion batteries on its 787 jets, but couldn't immediately give details.

U.S. officials and Boeing Co. are investigating whether defective batteries from the same batch caused incidents in two 787 Dreamliners that triggered the plane's worldwide grounding, according to two people familiar with the incidents. If that proves to be true, it could show a flaw causing the incidents was confined to a small number of 787s, rather than a systemic fault with the plane's engineering, design, or manufacturing, and could speed the resumption of flights. The sources, who were not authorized to speak publicly, said the information was preliminary and investigators had not ruled out other causes.

HOW ARE you going to keep your mobile phone up and running if Hurricane Sandy hits us with a wallop? Gizmo Guy has suggestions to help get you through the worst of the storm. First, prep your phone for hardship duty. Fully run that battery down - watching videos does that job quickest - then recharge the battery. While charging, venture into the settings and shut off all the "polling" features - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Navigation - buzzing in the background, sucking juice. Also shut down any apps running in the background.

The SpareOne mobile phone is not for everyday chatting, and there's no e-mail or Web browsing. This phone is meant for emergencies - now, or up to 15 years hence. That's how long the included single AA battery (an ultra-long- lasting Energizer Ultimate Lithium L91) is estimated to stay charged if stored unused. Once turned on, you get about 10 hours of talk time. The battery is replaceable. The phone looks pretty much like a basic cellphone (though a bit longer, at 5.5-by-2 inches, but slim and featherweight)

Mayor Nutter signed legislation Tuesday that will require one- and two-family homes to have smoke detectors with built-in batteries that last for a decade. The detectors, which would be required as part of the city's fire code as of Jan. 9, cost a few dollars more than traditional smoke detectors, but residents would save money over 10 years by not having to replace batteries. The fire code has required smoke detectors on every floor of one- and two-family homes since the early 1980s.
