Portable chargers are an increasingly desirable accessory in the smartphone era, and having two or three stashed away (like one in your glovebox for emergencies) is never a bad call. If you're looking to do it on the cheap, we've got a deal today that's definitely one you should hop on.

Amazon's offering a 5000mAh Vaas portable charger with dual USB ports, and actually includes six different USB tips right in the box for $14.99. The charger itself charges via miniUSB.


At 4 stars with 17 reviews, you can at least take peace of mind in knowing there's nothing particularly bad about it (I mean, it's a portable charger, there are only so many potential flaws). The Vaas 5000mAh is available in black or white.

    1A or 2A? Both my Nexus devices use 2A. Anything less is no good.
    Edit: screenies show 2A and a 1A. Nice find.

    Perfect! I've been looking for one of these devices for awhile now, browsing the various options available. In the past I had phones with swapable batteries, but the Nexus 4 doesn't support that. Hopefully this is able to keep my phone charged while on the go - and at a very nice price.

    Nice find, this will definitely be handy to have in the laptop bag at all times. Thanks!

      Be careful when you put it in your bag. The power button is flush and any movement can turn it on. The device doesnt automatically shut off so the device may be dead when you go to use it. Other than that and extremely long charge time not a bad device.

      • The Seventh Son

        Interesting.. why does it drain battery when it's "on" if it's not actually charging anything? Appreciate the advice though, thanks!

  • Matthew Fry

    none are in stock as of now :-I
