The Mophie Battery Rescue Dogs Save Dead Devices at SXSW

The Mophie battery rescue dogs are sure to be the stars of the 2015 South by Southwest Interactive. The festival, which takes place a week before its musical counterpart, is a huge gathering of the biggest names in new media and tech. Said names will likely run out of battery at some point during their stay in Austin, Texas. That's where Mophie, the battery pack company, comes in.

The Mophie battery rescue dogs will be dispatched to folks whose devices need a boost. All you need to do is tweet a screenshot of your dying battery to @mophie using #mophieRescue and an adorable St. Bernard may be dispatched to save you. It's unlikely the company will be able to answer all or even many of the inevitable requests, but it doesn't have to. Even one sighting of a Mophie rescue dog in the wild will likely be enough for attendees.
