We’ve all forgotten to plug our phone in overnight or before a night out, only for our phone to die a sad, quick death halfway through our commute. Even if you’re OK with carrying a phone charger with you everywhere you go, you still have to hope there’s a free outlet to use (and even then, you’re stuck by your phone). Save yourself the trouble of lugging around extra wires, and just invest in a portable battery pack that gives our smartphones a boost on-the-go.
Most battery packs aren’t device-specific, and can be used for iPhones, Androids and everything in-between. Some are external packs, and even have multiple USB ports for charging more than one device at a time. Others masquerade as phone cases, protecting your device while giving it enough juice to get you through until your next full charge. The best part? None are over $31.
Take a look at some of our favorite budget-friendly power banks and charging cases from Amazon.
