There are a ton of cheap batteries out there to choose from, so when we do reviews for them here at Android Police, we tend to be pretty picky. USB-C is a must-have from our mobile-first perspective, and anything less than 30W of output is a bit of a snooze. Thankfully, 45W seems to be the new high-end standard going into 2019, and RAVPower's new 20,100mAh battery ostensibly delivers that now-essential level of power for a mere $60. That's $140 less than what Mophie is charging for its similarly-spec'd 26,000mah battery, and Android Police readers can even get an extra $9 off via our exclusive coupon. Read More

External battery packs come in all shapes and sizes, but there's something about a solar panel that makes me want one more. I conjure up images of a battery that never dies and never needs to be charged, that can get me through a power outage after a summer hurricane with an overabundance of energy.

They're water, dust, and shock resistant. They come with two USB ports. They also offer a flashlight. Then there is the generous capacity. Read More

Either way, don't spend your money on a charger that can only re-power your phone once before blowing its load. Instead, wait for a deal online and get something that can go five times as long. Read More
