If your phone often runs out of juice when you’re out and about, you might benefit from a portable charger. We’ve rounded up our favourite portable chargers so that no matter where you are, if you’re still going, your phone is too.
For those who are short of space…Poweradd Slim2
A lot of the portable chargers on this list can keep your phone going for days on end, and charge multiple devices at once, but they’re also bulky bricks. If you’re looking for something that’s going to take up a lot less room, the Poweradd Slim2 is the right portable charger for you.
This little charger is light and small, but still powerful enough to keep your phone going. It has 5,000 mAh, and is the cheapest option on our list too; we found it on eBay for £9.42. The downside is with this charger you’ll need to pack your USB cable, and it’s only got a single port, so you’ll be charging one device at a time.
For those who need a lot of battery…JIGA Power Bank
If you’re after a portable phone charger that just won’t stop going, the JIGA Power Bank is the right choice for you. It has 30,000 mAh, the highest on this list, as well as three outputs and three inputs so you can charge multiple devices at once. This charger reportedly can take an iPhone 12 from dead to fully charged ten times over.
With something this powerful you’re obviously going to sacrifice on size, and this charger is far bulkier than some of the options on this list. But if you’re looking for something you can charge up once and forget about for the week, the JIGA Power Bank is the right choice.
For those who charge a phone, and nothing else…Mophie Juice Pack Mini
If you don’t fancy purchasing a bulky portable charger, but you still need something to keep your phone going, one option is getting a battery phone case. With these you can expect to get a little less battery than you’d get with a typical portable charger, but instead you get something slightly slimmer that fits onto the back of your phone.
The Mophie Juice Pack Mini isn’t a battery phone case, but it works in much the same way. It is a little portable charger that ‘snaps’ to the back of a ton of different kinds of phones, perfect if you like purchasing new devices regularly. The Mophie Juice Pack Mini has 5,000 mAh, and we found it for £39.99.
For those who hate wires…Anker PowerCore III 10K Wireless Portable Charger
If you really don’t want to carry around wires without, it is possible to get a wireless portable charger. It should be noted that if you opt to charge your phone wirelessly, this is going to be a slower process than plugging it in, and it’s likely to generate more heat than the wired version too.
These are often more expensive than the wired version, however we managed to find our pick, the AnkerPowerCore III for only £31.49, which is a steal. This charger has two USB ports, and a 10,000 mAh capacity.
For those who want something stylish…Moshi IonGo 5k Duo
The Moshi IonGo 5k Duo is a beautifully designed portable charger. It’s small, lightweight with a vegan leather magnetic cover. However, you are going to pay more when the charger looks this good; the Moshi IonGo 5k Duo is easily the most expensive option on our list at £74.95.
It might look sleek, but that doesn’t mean that you’re sacrificing functionality. The Moshi IonGo 5k Duo has 5,000 mAh, can charge two devices at a time, and comes with a built-in lightning cable and USB-C cable, so there’s no need to remember to pack your wires.
