Let's get real for a minute, shall we? When I say real, I mean real -- let's talk about protection. We all know of it, and while some of us use it regularly, others go without it all the time. Not only is this a horrible practice, but it's just not safe for any of the involved parties. Think about it, if you will -- what potential consequences could you suffer from going without protection? It's time to start acting a bit more responsibly -- it's time to get safe.

Naturally, I'm suggesting that you get a case for that expensive device in your pocket (where was your mind?). That's not all, though -- let's address the issue of charging while we're at it. Charging is a mundane part of phone ownership that could easily be made a more exciting part of your day with the addition of a useful accessory like a desktop charger.

Thankfully we have an answer to both of these quandaries wrapped up in a nice little package just for you! Well, not all of you, but five lucky people are going to score a case and desktop dock, courtesy of Seidio.

How to Win

Entering the contest is quite easy -- all you have to do is leave a comment with your device make/model, along with an answer the following question:

What is the funniest scenario you can think of for running out of battery?

Example: A text message conversation with the wife.

-- Hey, honey. I'll have to call you later, my phone is dying because I've been using it for power porn all morning.  <phone dies> Clearly, this is a case of autocorrect fail. That should say "powerpoint."

...and that's it. The winners will be chosen by the Android Police staff, so make your answer(s) count!


This contest is open to everyone across the globe and runs until August 26 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

Winners will be announced here and notified via email.

Good luck!

    OK, so while this might not be crazy funny It is to me. While driving home last week I was listening to the radio (sports radio) and the host likes to play songs and have people guess the song. Well seeing as how I have no skills when it comes to this I figured, hey I'll use soundhound and see if it can get it. Sure enough it does and I call the radio show right away. I get through which was amazing cause that never seems to work and while I am waiting to get on the air with the host my dang phone finally dies. Next thing I hear over the radio is the host going to my call with nothing but dead air on the other side. OMG I wanted to throw my phone at that moment. For once I was close to winning something and all for not. I guess that will teach me to carry my charger or remember to charge my phone at home the night before.

    So I'm entering a contest to win prizes for my uber-cool phone. I'm also excited because I just got the latest OS update, so battery life should be better. As I'm about to tell my "funniest scenario you can think of for running out of battery" story, I see my LED blinking, which tells me my batt..................

    True story...
    My friend meant to send a text message of a song playing in a bar to his fiance to remember it. Because he didn't know the name he just sent something to remind him of the song. He sent "You'll never see me again" and then his phone died. He found out the next day he accidentally sent it to his fiance's mother and she had been worried all night he had done something rash. Haha it was pretty funny hearing he had to call and explain it was a drunk text with no meaning behind it.

    I guess those jokers at Android Police were pulling my leg when they posted an article claiming that a tin foil hat makes the perfect DIY induction charger.
