While it should be mandatory that things like operational plans/procedures and contact lists should be printed out Just In Case, the ability to have a near-infinite number of books and other references in my mobile phone, which has a 9,000mAh battery which doesn't need to be charged more than once every 3 or 4 days (as well as a spare battery of the same capacity), makes it a lot easier to a) have ready access to reference materials I know in advance I need and b) quickly locate and download any additional references I may need, but hadn't anticipated needing ahead of time.

This capability has been of great utility on several occasions involving significant sturm und drang.
