Low battery anxiety: It's a thing

- Electronics company LG  says nearly 9 out of 10 people suffer from the fear of losing power on their phone, which it calls 'low battery anxiety.'

The company polled more than 2,000 adult smartphone users in the U.S. earlier this year. If given a choice between hitting the gym or charging their smartphone, the poll found one in three people is likely to skip the gym.

But among millennials, 42 percent are likely to skip the gym in favor of charging their phone.
