There are fewer accessory purchases I have appreciated more than my portable USB charger. This one, with a truly massive capacity, is a mere $13.99 after applying its coupon on Amazon. It checks all the boxes you'd look for in an external battery of its kind, with support for speedy 2A charging output in one port and another available for simultaneous charging at conventional speeds. There is an indicator to let you know how much charge it has left, which is handier than you would think.
Oh yeah, it also boasts a 15,000 mAh capacity, which is just about as big as it gets in this category. Read More
It seems like portable chargers are getting smaller, cheaper, with a larger capacity all the time. What better example of this phenomenon than this Omaker external battery, which boasts 15,600 mAh and two USB output ports that push 2.1A, the amperage needed to charge tablets and some phones at faster than a snail's pace. The device itself supports 2.1A input too, so it should refuel reasonably quickly once you've drained it.
For reference, the new Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a 2550 mAh battery. HTC's upcoming M9 will have 2840 mAh. You can do the math: you're looking at about 5 full charges for one of these flagships before this portable charger is empty, and that's a conservative estimate. Read More
