The fear and panic that sets in when your battery drops – otherwise known as 'Low Battery Anxiety' – is a common syndrome plaguing mobile phone users. It’s also the subject of new spot 'Don’t You Die on Me', which demonstrates the human benefits of the fast wireless charging technology, pioneered by the brand, with cinematic drama and suspense.

The spot follows viewers engrossed in gripping movies on their phones. Just as key characters run into life or death situations – 'Don’t die on me!' – the low battery sign starts flashing. Low battery anxiety sets in as the desperate hunt for a phone charger begins, complete with its numerous challenges. The solution? Samsung’s Fast Charge Wireless Charger Convertible that the final watcher easily places her Samsung Note8 on as her movie continues uninterrupted.
