Abstract

Recent advancements in Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), notebooks, laptops, etc. have provided a user with methods for transporting their electronic office. Recent products provide methods by which the software can notify the user as to the battery power level. These products typically provide a local warning that the battery strength is diminishing. However, such condition does not directly inform the user of recharging times nor intervals required for recharging. More specifically, no reminder is generated for recharging. Users desire a method by which typical calendars can remind and convey time intervals for PDA recharging tasks.
