With almost everything going digital and much of our social life, business and personal life somewhat reliant on devices (even if you are not a renowned vlogger), keeping them charged has never been more important. Lucky for us, it has also never been easier.
Portable charging banks have been around for several years but over the past couple of years, they have evolved to become lighter, more compact and with more capacity. Often, you can find a reasonably priced charger with at least enough juice to charge your phone 2 or 3 times (typically 10,000mAh capacity) without much searching. However, the options are endless so let us take some of the guesswork out and give you a list of our top choices.
Anker PowerCore 10000 Portable Charger
Compact, lightweight and a 10,000mAh capacity. 33,000 ratings cannot be wrong! This charger comes with an 18 month warranty, travel pouch and welcome guide and all for slightly over $20.
