Portable power: 21 battery packs for your Smartphone and Tablet

battery packs for your Smartphone and Tablet

I like to take long road trips on my motorcycle and I always carry my iPhone 5s and iPad Air with me. When you are on the road it is difficult to find a power socket to charge your smartphone or a tablet, so I carry a portable battery pack/power bank with me. If you like to travel a lot like me or if you do not travel as much but experience power outage or blackouts in your area, a portable battery can always come in handy. Portable charging device can be used to charge your smartphone, smart watch, tablet, digital camera, media players and other devices that charge over USB.

You should look for few things when you are shopping for a power bank – capacity, convenience, and cost.

Capacity – If you want a portable charger that offers the maximum amount of juice for your iPhone, iPad, or other USB-charged device, look at the battery capacity, measured in milliampere-hour (mAh).

Convenience and Cost – The problem with high-capacity batteries is that they are generally larger and heavier in size than low-capacity batteries. Also, the high-capacity battery takes longer to charge itself. So high mAh power banks may not always be convenient to carry around and might cost a bit higher. Whereas advantage of having a high-capacity battery pack is that it can provide power to multiple devices in a single charge, or can charge a single device multiple number of times.

Here I have 21 power banks with capacity of over 10,000mAh that can charge your smartphones and tablets.

NOTE :- Some of these power banks come with a charger to charge them and some of them don’t, I use an iPad charger with a normal micro USB cable to charge all the power banks i have and it works perfectly.
