Phone-n-Fix will open locations in Ankeny and West Des Moines, Iowa, as part of a two-unit franchise deal with Jill Van Zee and John Kolb. The locations are expected to open in the fall, giving Phone-n-Fix its first two stores in the state.
Leaving a smartphone on efficiency mode to maximize the battery may allow for longer time between charges, but it could also impair the user's experience, Staymobile technician Brad Nichols says. Smartphone owners should also avoid using off-brand chargers, which can damage the phone's charger port or battery by supplying the wrong voltage, Nichols said.
Phone-n-Fix has announced a franchise program that will enable the company to grow throughout the US. "We are initially looking to add 25 new franchise locations in the next year, then grow to more than 300 locations in the next five years," Executive Vice President Steve Michael said.
