This week, we’re talking travel gadgets… specifically, the best portable power accessories.
I spend more than half the year on the road, and while I’m traveling, I do all of my business on my phone…
The problem is, I can never keep the battery charged. I’m always looking for the latest and greatest accessories out there, so here are a few I’ve found that you may like.
Two names are always at the top of my list, and those are Anker and Mophie.
You probably know Mophie as the company that makes those phone cases that’ll charge your phone when it dies… They’re making a new power pack called the PowerStation.
It’s slim, which helps reduce clutter in your back, but it’ll charge your phone a whopping 8 times before it needs a recharge. It’ll set you back about 70-bucks.
There’s also the Anker power core, which can charge your phone about 7 times, but it can actually charge your laptop one full charge cycle before you need to plug it in. Its also only about 45 bucks.
If you carry lots of devices with you - a tablet, a phone or two, and smartwatch… Check out Nomad’s Wireless Charging Hub… Lay your new iPhone or android on top to wirelessly charge, and plug the rest of your stuff into the five USB power points around the edge. It’s stylish too, but a little pricey at almost 80 bucks.
If you really need a ton of power on the road, and don't mind a larger package, check out the EcoFlow River.
Run a projector for 10 hours, charge your laptop up to 9 times, or your phone more than 30 times, this power bank will handle a lot of juice. It’s rechargeable in your hotel, your car, or even with an optional solar panel.
It’ll hold it’s charge for a full year on the go, but it will set you back about 600 bucks.
