Fantastic Battery Packs for Various Lifestyles

Not all battery packs are created equal. Of course, one of important factors to check out is how much battery a pack can hold (mAh). You’ll probably also look at charging speed and how portable the device is. But, also, consider under what circumstances you plan to use the battery pack. Perhaps you need one that’s waterproof for your summer adventures or one that has solar charge for emergency situations. Or perhaps you want a go-to that’s small enough to fit in your wallet. That’s why I decided to create this roundup of fantastic battery packs for various lifestyles.

With 1,500 mAh, the Travel Card won’t hold as much charge as some of the other battery packs we’ll look at. However, it’s slim enough to fit in your wallet. That’s a big deal if you want to carry a battery pack when traveling light or as a just-in-case pack for when your phone dies. It’s small enough that’ll you can carry it wherever you go and always have it ready when needed. Plus, it provides up to 5 hours of extra talk time.

 

ZeroLemon SolarJuice ($45.95)

This battery pack holds 20,000 mAh and can be solar charged. It’s rain resistant and shockproof as well. Even though it’s capable of being solar charge, there’s a MicroUSB charging cord to make it easier for daily use. The solar panel is able to charge your phone 50% after sitting in normal sunlight for eight hours. There’s also an LED flashlight built-in, making this battery pack the perfect option for camping.

 

Braven BRV-Bank ($99.99)

Braven created the first Bluetooth-enabled battery pack which allows you to monitor and control remaining battery levels remotely using the Braven app. It’s also ultra-rugged with an IPX5 water resistant rating and includes a USB flashlight. It only hold 6000 mAh but has some of the faster charging times and S.O.S. safety features.

 

Jackery Giant ($29.99)

The Jackery Giant has a 12,000 mAh rechargeable power capacity and easily provides full charging services for various devices. This one is perfect for those who might need to charge two devices at the same time with a power bank. You could charge a range of items from Apple Watch, iPad, and iPhone to GoPro, FitBit, and more.

 

Lepow Poki Series ($19.99)

Last but not least, the Poki series by Lepow has 5,000 mAh. It’s one of the best looking battery packs I’ve ever seen in a sleek, minimal design available in multiple colors. It’s also lighter and thinner than many battery packs, and according to reviews it “charges as fast as a power outlet.”
