72% won’t share their phone’s battery on the first date
Samsung says that people who share their battery life are sharing a gift and an intimate part of themselves. The company even calls it a “win-win” noting that 62% are willing to buy a cup of coffee for a stranger in exchange for some energy and 7% said that they would agree to go out on a date with someone if they shared some of their battery life with them.
Wireless reverse charging might be the new sex. 72% of the respondents won’t share their battery life on the first date with most holding out until the third date. That is why you might overhear someone at a bar say, “Share my Galaxy S10 battery life with you? I’m not that kind of girl.” And 21% of the Europeans said that receiving some juice from a date’s phone is the most appreciated gesture when they go out. This study indicates that the human race might die out sooner than we think.
If you’re in Europe and your phone is about to die, stay away from those belonging to Generation Z and millennials. Those 18 to 34 are less likely (21%) to use wireless PowerShare to help you out. Instead, head for someone who looks 55 or older. They are more willing (36%) to give you some energy from their handset. And if someone tells you that they don’t have enough battery life remaining on their phone to share, don’t believe them. One-third (33%) of those taking part in Samsung’s survey said that they would lie about this so that they could turn down your request for battery life to keep your phone alive.
