1. Anker Astro Mini 3000mAh Ultra-Compact Portable Charger Lipstick-Sized External Battery Power Bank Pack for most Smartphones and other USB-charged devices (Apple Adapters- 30 pin and Lightning, NOT Included) – Black
It seems like my Iphone is always drained at the most inopportune times, I think it’s because I take so many photos. My sister got me this portable charger for my birthday and I was immediately impressed with its tiny lipstick size! And it works great! It gives my Iphone up to 9 hours of extra time, giving me plenty of time to take photos, talk, text, whatever! I highly recommend this product.
2. Cellularize’s Emergency Portable Cell Phone Charger W/ LED Flashlight: 3000mAh; Lipstick-Sized; Smartphone Adapters Included – Silver purchase here
I bought this unit prior to going on a camping trip, and it worked great. My cell phone typically has a long battery life, but once it started to die down all I had to do was attach the adapter and charge, and it was back up and running shortly. The flashlight works great too, I was surprised how much power the light had for being so tiny!
3. Jackery Bar Premium Fast-charging Aluminum Portable Charger 5600mAh External Battery Backup Power Bank. Compact Design, High Capacity. For Apple iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, iPad, Air, Mini, Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, Note, Nexus, LG, HTC. (Orange)
I’m on the road a lot for my job, so I always make sure to have back up for my Smartphone. This little gadget is by-far the best charger I have ever used. It’s no bigger than a cigarette lighter, but it definitely gets the job done. The only slight downfall is that it does heat up, but my phone is pretty much ready to go by the time that happens. I will definitely be recommending the Jackery to my work colleagues.
4.iContact IC-PB210 2600mAh Portable Backup Battery Charger USB Power Bank for Smart Phones and other Digital Devices – Retail Packaging – Black
This is a great little gizmo for anyone that has an Iphone or Android. It features a sleek design and is available in a variety of great colors. I chose black, but when it wears out, I may go with a more fun color like blue or pink. It charges fairly quickly and the indicator light comes in handy as well. It also works on my Ipad, which is definitely helpful when I’m not close to home and don’t have access to my Ipad charger. I will definitely purchase a new one when I need it!
5. CITUS – Astra M1 8000mAh Ultra Slim Aluminum Portable Backup External Battery, Single USB Output for iPhone 5S, 5C, iPad Air, Mini 2, Note 3, Nexus 5, Moto X, PS Vita, GoPro, All Other Android Smartphones, Tablets and USB-Charged Gadgets (Silver)
I needed a new charger for my Ipad and I was immediately drawn to the sleek and unique design of the CITUS. So far it works great, and I love the metal casing. I have read other reviews that say the case is too heavy, but I keep it in my purse and don’t feel any extra weight. I also like the basic indicator light, as it is easy to read and gives a precise read on how much time I have left. I will definitely recommend this to others.
