Popping my head out of the window, I am not just amazed by everything I experience, I like to capture those moments into my lens to treasure those priceless moments.

It is easy to capture the desired moment, but at the same time incredibly easy to share it with the world. But when it comes to battery life of the smart phone, it fails to impress me.Many times, while on the move,I want to capture those rare moments and my battery gets exhausted.It not just spoils the fun of capturing moments but also contributes equally to spoiling your joyous mood.
